Paintings - Leslie Peterson, April 1 - 25

The Lane Community College Art Gallery is proud to present the exhibition, Paintings, by regional artist Leslie Peterson. Leslie was born and raised in Portland and currently resides in Tualatin, Oregon.

“I work directly on wood panel (with acrylics), sometimes integrating collage. The colors are rich and yet subtle, based on a limited palette, working off of the color of the surface. My paintings are unquestionably contemporary, yet classic and accessible. In choosing snapshots and photographs that involve happenchance and unpretentious expression, I show how the mundane moments of life are rich with meaning. My style is transcendent of time or fashion, and evokes the essence of life and our ageless human existence.”

The show runs from April 1st to April 25th. A lecture will take place on Thursday, April 4th, beginning at 3:00 with a reception immediately following. The lecture and reception are free and open to the public. The gallery is located in Building 11 on the main campus of Lane Community College, 4000 E. 30th Avenue. There is no charge for admission. The Art and Applied Design Department phone number is 541-463-5409.
