A collaborative exhibit of works by Bill Shumway and Don Ferguson. It is a display of photographs, paintings and artwork employing both mediums. They have been engaged in this collaborative process for most of 2015, mostly for the love of it, but also to put an exhibit together and to develop a set of workshops to teach photography and painting students how to produce collaborative imagery. They chose crows as a subject because they are so expressive, mythological and they have both been intrigued by them for years.

Gallery Calapooia "Lighting the Path"

Guest Artist, William E Shumway with an exhibit of paintings titled "Lighting the Path"

Reception: Friday, February 12, 2016, 6 to 8 PM

This, to some extent, is a retrospective show, demonstrating stylistic, genre and medium shifts over several decades. His roots are in abstract expressionism but he was overwhelmed by the Northwest landscape when he arrived here in the mid seventies and it changed his perception dramatically. He has also included a number of portraits of artists who have affected his artistic evolution and his twenty four year engagement with interference pigments has truly been illuminating.
