At 2pm, a gallery talk will commence about the lives of the artists and the art works in the show

We are excited to be doing a show of legendary Oregon artists Amanda Snyder and Jefferson Tester, which we hope will honor and further promote the work of two of Oregon's most significant mid-century master artists. Our show is wide-ranging and eclectic, featuring a number of significant, museum exhibited and published pieces, along with some very good, affordable works.
