August & September 2017
As an avid hiker and adventure-seeking Midwest girl, Kelli MacConnell made her way to Portland in 2006 after thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, sections of the Pacific Crest Trail, and various other ramblings. MacConnell received her BFA with a focus in printmaking in 2012 and enthusiastically began showing her work. People ask, “Why a print, why not a painting?” On one hand, MacConnell enjoys the act of using tools to shape something, but much of the joy rests within the surprise factor—the mystery that unfolds while printing each piece. Her current body of work focuses on the expansive, diverse environment of the Pacific Northwest landscape.
Inspirations of Classical China joins a group of artists with common interests in Chinese culture and its arts. Although they come from different parts of the world and different backgrounds, they all use brush, paper, color, and ink to convey their artistic expressions. Inspirations of Classical China, featuring work by Carmen Chan, Agnes Kwan, Dan Lucas, Mary Jo Mann, Huon Quach, and Karen Swallow, will be on display through September, 2017 at Lan Su Chinese Garden.
