NSH Gallery Features Artist William Shumway

An exhibit by artist William Shumway entitled River Painting will be on display March 2 through April 24 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, March 11, from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. in NSH Gallery.

River Painting depicts the scenic beauty of Oregon Rivers, including the Metolius, the Rowe, the John Day, the Mary’s and the Willamette.

Shumway’s acrylic paintings were created over a period of several years, sometimes painted from a canoe or the air. An artist and teacher, Shumway has taught many landscape painting workshops with fellow painter, Mark Allison, along the Metolius River banks.

“Painting moving, transparent water has always been intriguing to me,” said Shumway. “It is as close, metaphorically, to the illusive nature of the creative act itself that I can imagine. Capturing an ever-moving, transparent and reflective set of overlapping images with opaque paint can be a mindboggling challenge, to say the least.”
LBCC’s North Santiam Hall Gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
