Shelli Walters offers an artistic visit with nature in her May show, Water Echo at Tumalo Art Co.
May 1 @ 9:00 am - June 1 @ 8:00 pm
In a time when we may be feeling especially isolated, Shelli Walters’ show, Water Echo is a vibrant visual connection to nature and the world around us. These new mixed media pieces explore the powerful energy and movement of water flowing through rivers, lakes, seas – and our souls.
“While creating these paintings, I thought about how water connects virtually everything. In all its forms — liquid, vapor, ice — water has the magical capacity to change as it flows through waterways, earth, sky, animals, trees and people. Water always finds a way. Perhaps that is why being near it makes us feel hopeful.”
Layers and layers of thoughts, stories, experiences, moods — shifting one over the other — sometimes revealing a hint of what is underneath. This has become Shelli’s signature voice and style. Alternating layers of acrylic paint and collage to create richly textured and colorful pieces that invite you to look closer and discover your own story.
In lieu of our traditional First Friday reception while we are under temporary Covid closure, we invite you to enjoy the show online.
