Adult Events in November

Art Display in October and November: Dutch Rogue Cove, Ben Miller. Reception November 2 from 12-2 PM.

Ben Miller creates paintings of rivers using a fly rod as a means of applying paint to a clear poly-carbon surface. The fly rod allows the paint to be applied with the same movement and meditation that a stream as well as the action the fly rod can provide. During the winter months when it is too cold to paint outside a trout is painted in a series of resin layers to create depth to the painting and more relevant to an understanding about the movement under the water being a flowing stream.
