“Better Becoming” became
Our first night as part of First Friday in the Central Eastside District was spent with three pretty cool guys and a lot of their fans. Better Becoming is a collaborative art show between Mark Warren Jacques, Tim Karpinski and Erik Railton. All Portland locals, you can see the influence of nature’s beauty in each of their works. Jacques with his sumi-e line drawings mimicking waves and twigs, and the various tree silhouettes shown in Railton’s resin-coated paintings or Karpinski’s intricate, folksy collages. Each artist has a strong personal style that not only showcases his talents but also gives the careful viewer a glimpse of the artist’s spirit.
The show will be up thru the month of October. Art work from the show will be posted on the webstore later this week and available for purchase.
