2nd Annual "Big Show Of Little Art"

Gallery Calapooia’s second community-wide art show, The Big Show of Little Art, will be on display Jan. 29 to Feb. 23. The show celebrates the art work of 210 artists of all ages from 16 mid-valley communities including Adair Village, Albany, Brownsville, Crabtree, Corvallis, Lebanon, Philomath, Shedd, Tangent, Scio, Monroe, Sweet Home, as well as Marcola, Happy Valley, Beaverton and Salem.

Pictured below from left to right, top to bottom "Taking Time" by Mervin Munster, "Alley Cat" by Anita Cook, "Garden Magic" by Laurie Flood, "Heceta Head" by Mary Ridler, Karen Miller and Susan Bourdet.

In addition to the 124 entries from artists in the area, the gallery received 86 student entries from these schools: Albany Options School, Timber Ridge, West Albany High School, and Memorial Middle School. A grant from the Linn County Cultural Coalition made it possible for Gallery Calapooia to provide canvases to students in schools so they could have this opportunity.

All the work is 8x8 inches in size and includes a wide variety of media: acrylics, watercolors, oils, mixed media, calligraphy, sculpture, photography, pencil, clay, encaustic, scratchboard, fused glass, wood, wire and fiber art.

First Friday Reception February 1st, 6:00 - 8:00pm

An artist’s reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1, will include the art work of the 20 member artists of Gallery Calapooia as well as The Big Show of Little Art. Cookies and punch will be served.

Gallery Calapooia Artist Bill Thompson collaborates with Albany Civic Theater

Gallery Calapooia artist Bill Thompson will have his vinyl art displayed in the ACT lobby during the January performances of Love & Information. What's more, Bill is creating 15 new artworks especially themed for the show.

Like a scroll through a Facebook feed turned into live action, in Love and Information a troupe of exceptionally versatile actors portray over 100 characters in 57 vignettes by turns hilarious and heart-wrenching. Smart and tender-hearted, this whirlwind dramatic comedy explores the ways people try to connect with and understand each other in our modern age of information overload and ever-shortening attention spans.
