The gallery press release states: "In this new work, Grosowsky returns to his familiar themes of figures and landscapes, but with some significant changes and a fresh perspective.

Lee Imonen Sculpture "Bountiful" at Delta Ponds

Lee Imonen, sculpture instructor, has just installed his sculpture "Bountiful" next to the new Delta Ponds Pedestrian Bridge in Eugene. He was featured in a recent piece on KEZI-TV, a local Eugene television station. The sculpture refers to a Native American fishing method with poles and a fishing net. Imonen states: "I want the net to look full, like it's just been pulled out of the water.
