Artist’s Reception: March 7, 5 – 7 pm

Substrate: The ground upon which stuff is built. Also, substratum: The material of which something is made and from which it derived its special qualities.
Substrates is a group show where artists will utilize a variety of media to explore their impressions and expressions of substrates.  The exhibit will run from March 5 – 29, 2015 with an Artist’s Reception on Saturday, March 7 from 5 -7 pm.

Artists Marilyn Joyce is from Portland, along with Mary Ann Puls, and Shawn Demarest while Liza Jones, Susan C. Walsh and Kathleen Ryan are all from Manzanita.

“Since my work is inspired by what is experienced on my walks over a variety of terrain, the substrate literally becomes the land that I walk on, and the layers beneath. In further exploring the concept of substrate, I was drawn to a fundamental place within my art practice of drawing on paper. The paper is the foundation upon which the marks, thick and thin layers of material, form information based on the graphite and charcoal – a back and forth dance that creates a tactile quality. In these drawings, the material itself took precedence over the image, with one drawing informing the next,” writes Marilyn Joyce about her latest body of work on view at the Cannon Beach Gallery.  Joyce has been showing at the gallery the last two years as a featured artist where the rich variety of her work has been well received by patrons.

MaryAnn Puls creates non-representational art using a combination of re-purposed materials and substrates including pencil, paint and collage elements.  Each piece records spontaneous impulses and thoughtful arrangements.

“Everyday visual stimuli, words and an arm-chair interest in natural science create constant fodder and themes in my work,” Puls explains of her process.
