Celebrate 50 Years of Frank Lloyd Wright in Oregon
Houses, Landscapes, Flowers, & Dreams: Art Exhibition & Sale by C.J. Hurley September 6 through October 12, $5 The Poetic Art of CJ Hurley: Artist's Rectiption September 13, 4 to 7 p.m., Public Invited, Free
Roycrofter Artisan, CJ Hurley, has been working on a collection of paintings paired with poetry with the hope they will bring individuals to a new sense of awe and respect for nature and our place in it. “We as a people are consumed by our daily lives which makes it difficult for us to keep nature at the forefront of mind. We are prone to two actions: shaping the world to fit us instead of shaping ourselves to fit the world, and unwittingly ignoring nature and the impact we have on it,” states CJ.
“.. Form the habit of nature study, little by little you will find your faculties strengthened, refreshed, and capable of more effective interpretation, and it will go on as long as you do. Frank Lloyd Wright, 1957
C.J. of C.J, Hurley Century Arts will present his work in the Gordon House Living Room Gallery from September 6 through October 12. The exhibition will be the perfect partnership of Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architecture and Hurley's art and poetry that are meant to make people aware of these actions that connect us with nature and influence change. Join the artist at his reception on Saturday, September 13, begining at 4 p.m.
