Earl Hamilton has created a new body of work that is both whimsical and abstract with images interacting with his sometimes dark palettes and other times brightly colored. His shapes are intriguingly set in backgrounds that are compelling and mysterious. This presentation is strong and thoughtful.

Mike Dean Orias creates imaginative, unique sculpture that is both innovative and refreshingly spontaneous. His creations are all hand made of welded steel, wire and portions of recycled salvaged metal. Mike, an Industrial Arts Instructor at the W. P. Lord High School in Woodburn, Oregon is sharing this exhibit with a juried group of metal sculptures created by his students.
