November Exhibit

Ulrike Halverson, Uta Zuendel and Sidonie Caron

will display their artwork at Second Story Gallery in the Camas Public Library during November.

Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Ulrike Halverson has studied art from an early age. Watercolor has become her medium of choice. Her art has evolved under the tutelage of national and internationally renowned teachers and through her own drive, determination, and love of these endeavors. Halverson is also known for her cityscapes of downtown Camas and Europe and landscapes of the Columbia River Gorge. She is an active board member of the Second Story Gallery in Camas and especially enjoys hanging the monthly shows.

Uta Zuendel is a wood sculptor.  Zuendel's creativity emerges from a desire, or need, to explore and express how she understands herself and her relationship to the world around her.  Presently, the actual expression of this understanding is tempered, controlled and limited by the medium and the tools of sculpting with wood. Zuendel invites us to explore her work and, perhaps, discover something in it for ourselves…a happy remembrance, a deep sorrow, outrageous joy, the depths of the sea, the beginnings of life…or, just a block of wood that someone has chiseled on!

Sidonie Caron was featured in March 2011 on "Oregon Art Beat". Caron is well known for her acrylic paintings of bridges in Portland, Oregon.  Caron has experimented with diverse subject matter during her 45 year career to keep her work fresh and not formulaic. Beginning with formal training at St. Martins School of Art, London, England, and spanning an active exploration of landscapes, abstracts, figurative art, and  appliqué, Caron captures the essence of her subjects with attentive zest. 

All three artists have supported the Camas Library over the years.  Zuendel served on the Art Selection Committee for the Camas Library.  Halverson has two artworks hanging in the library and one of Caron's paintings is hung above the fireplace at the Camas Library.

Halverson, Zuendel, and Caron will be on hand to discuss their artwork at an opening reception that is part of the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Camas.
