Opening Reception for Let it Be

Let it Be: Randomness in Abstract Art – Rebecca Arthur and Geralyn Inokuchi 

July 14, 2019 to October 7, 2019

Two artists explore color and texture in very different media. In both contemporary abstract painting (Inokuchi) and Raku pottery (Arthur), the goal is to achieve beauty in simplicity and imperfection. Both develop along the lines of randomness where the composition is asymmetric yet balanced.  UNO RICHTER ATRIUM GALLERY

Adopt-An-Art Work 

July 14, 2019 to September 27, 2019

Specializing in contemporary American printmakers and Northwest artists, Coos Art Museum’s Permanent Collection has grown through donations. The Museum has received works in need of conservation, framing, or other maintenance.  Friends of the Museum often choose to “adopt an artwork”, underwriting the cost of framing or restoring a work which will remain within the Permanent Collection. These donations, gifts and bequests are important in the Museum’s efforts to ensure that its Permanent Collection will remain a community asset for many years into the future.
