April 1- June 26 at Vancouver’s City Hall
From April 1 to June 25 the artwork of Emily Ginsburg will be shown in the lobby of Vancouver’s City Hall along with the photography of Al Flory in the conference rooms. There will be an opening reception Friday, April 3 from 5:30 – 8pm.
Emily Ginsburg will be showing two large prints from her animation If You Felt the Same: A year of momentary traces. On her website Ginsburg describes the pieces as a form of portraiture. “ Using the aesthetics of pop culture and psychology derived from mood rings and related color charts as sources, this piece functions as both a record of daily activity—represented by each individual ring of color—and as a totality, a moving composition.” The prints give the impression of movement. They are hypnotic. The bright colors are engaging and dizzying. Ginsburg is an accomplished artist who works in many mediums. Her artwork has been shown nationally and internationally. She is a Professor and Chair of Media Arts at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
Al Flory emphasizes colors and texture in his artwork. He crops out most of the narrative information from his photographs. His work often has a strong relationship to abstract painting. In other images he uses soft focus to establish an impressionistic effect. Flory shows us landscapes that are more about color, lines and planes than place. Flory is a member of Inner Light Photographic Society. His artwork has been shown at Angst, the North Bank Artists Gallery, Gallery 360 and other venues around the Pacific Northwest.
City Hall is located at 415 W. 6th Street, Vancouver, WA 98660
The lobby is open 8-5 Monday - Friday. Artwork in the conference rooms is available for viewing when the space is not being used for city business and meetings.

For the month of April the North Bank Artists will host an exhibit of paintings by Andrew Lorish and Richard York. The two artists share a love of color and bring a great deal of joy to their work. The paintings are layered with patterns and textures, and show a high level of experimentation.
Andrew Lorish is dedicated to painting, but is fluid in his choice of paint- he uses house paint along side traditional egg tempera and casein. Several of Lorish’s artworks have words imbedded in lines, dots, and squiggles. They are comic book sound effects that narrate the artist’s inner dialog and emotional landscape.
The paintings of Richard York although abstract, hint at landscapes, figures, and forms. They are dreamy spaces. The forms in his art fade in and out of focus, root to the earth, then drift off into the air as the images oscillate between being flat surface and object. The colors run, vibrate, and glow.
khártēs poiesis is a celebration of paint, color, and intuitive forms. The show is delightful, filled with thoughtfully created, poetic artworks.
