I highly recommend seeing the 100 Artists Show at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery in Salem, OR. Each artist was sent a food can to create a piece of art around the theme 'Nourish and Sustain'. Proceeds of the silent auction benefit Marion-Polk Food Share, a local food bank. It's always amazing to me to see how a 100 artists given the same item create very different artwork.
Two of our Portland Art Collective members participated this year. Check out Tory Brokenshire's and Dayna Collin's assemblage pieces.
