Mixed Media Paintings On Canvas By Earl Hamilton
Welded Metal Sculpture By Mike Dean Orias
Opening Wine Reception Wednesday July 3rd, 6-9 pm
Music by Jamie Stillway
Wine Tasting by Maryhill Winery

Some of Earl Hamilton's paintings are filled with a kind of whimsical lightness reflected in many images such as castles, clowns, children, cats, flowers, animals, horses, and lovers. He layers acrylic paint and uses collage materials in many of his playful works that take the viewer into a world of fantasy.

During the opening reception, Earl will paint a painting on location demonstrating his technique.

Mike Dean Orias creates wild, imaginative, fun and whimsical metal sculptures made of welded steel, wire and portions of salvaged and recycled metal. He is known for his four foot high musicians playing almost any type of instrument. Mike is available for commissions in many sizes and designs.

Mike Orias, who is currently the Industrial Arts Instructor for the W. P. Lord High School in Woodburn, Oregon is sharing his exhibit of new work with a juried group of metal sculptures by his students.
