NSH Gallery Features Winter Invitational: Bets Cole, Judy Ness and Laura Mack

The Winter Invitational exhibit by three guest artists, Bets Cole, Judy Ness and Laura Mack will be shown through Feb. 27 in the North Santiam Hall Gallery of Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd SW, Albany.

A reception and gallery talk will be held Wednesday, Jan. 21, from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. in NSH second floor atrium.
The Winter Invitational features tapestries by Judy Ness, landscape paintings by Bets Cole, and collage images and paintings by Laura Mack. The show is rich in its diversity of media and style. Each artist’s work reflects a journey of a place or time.

Judy Ness, a fiber artist from Eugene, reflects about her journey as she weaves light and color into each tapestry. Usually working freeform, she creates tapestries using the Norwegian Krokbragd and Diné (Navajo)/Southwestern techniques.

Bets Cole, a landscape painter from Eugene, has created a series of paintings reflecting upon the journey of David Douglas, an early northwest explorer from the 1800s. As part of a project called, “In the Footsteps of David Douglas,” Bets painted at sites visited by Douglas, with “fresh eyes,” imagining what David Douglas observed as he explored the Willamette Valley.

Laura Mack, a collage artist from Salem. Her work involves a process of layering papers, paint and images to create stories. Collage is a way of making visual connections from disparate materials and images that Mack has collected. Her process embraces the unknown, and the result is part of the journey.

LBCC’s North Santiam Hall Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
