The line is a fundamental aspect of all forms of artistic expression, and the Gretchen Schuette Art Galley is presenting a quarter of artists in an exhibit focusing on the line.
“Line It Out” features works from Kate Simmons, Gigi Conot, Heather Goodwind and Deborah Bouchette, and is intended to highlight the importance of line as an artistic tool.
The exhibit is showing now through May 4. An artist’s reception is scheduled for 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6 at the gallery, with an artist talk at 1:30.
The works include sculpture, painting and sewing. The artists twist and reshape the basic element of line into unique forms, demonstrating the diversity and quality of line utilized in modern art. Their artwork pushes line beyond its foundational uses and in doing so emphasizes its higher potential.
The Gretchen Schuette Art Galley is located on the ground floor of Building 3 on Chemeketa’s Salem Campus. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays.
