Voices Gallery Takes over Imagine Coffee

Voices Artist Shannon Finley
Voices Artist Erin Wallace
 Voices Gallery is a collective of 10 local women artists located in downtown Corvallis under the psychedelic eagle mural on 4th St.  I have been privileged to have been involved with this awesome collective since 2016. In addition to showing every Third Thursday as part of the Corvallis Arts Walk, Voices also participates in group shows and exhibitions. This month all 10 of us hung our work at Imagine Coffee located off of Philomath Blvd in Corvallis just West of 53rd St. We are a collective of artists with varied styles and themes, yet somehow our work seems to merge so well together. Our show opening and reception will take place on March 9th from 2-4pm at Imagine Coffee.  For this show I am displaying some functional pottery/ tea sets as well as a brand new series of Macrame Wall Hangings with Clay Elements that I've been really enjoying creating! Scroll down for more images of the Imagine Show and my Macrame Art Statement.

Macrame Wall Hanging Series

Diana Rose Ryan, Visual Artist

This series of work speaks about complexities.

Combining soft and hard elements, the rigidity and free flow of form and pattern

Experiments in combining fiber with clay and natural found objects and merging craft and repetition with the uncertainty of lived experience

Exploration of Craft vs Art

Contradictions, beauty, humanity
