Rare Sea Serpent and Missing Dinosaur Found at Astoria Art Loft’

Sea serpent? Dinosaur? Haven’t they been extinct for thousands of years? Yes, BUT . . . Both are a part of the annual endangered (and extinct) animal and plant art exhibit at Astoria Art Loft. And, they are big! And touchable! They are found in the company of saber-toothed tigers, giraffes, elephants, trees, sea turtles, early hominoids, and other long-gone animals and plants.

The purpose of the annual endangered species exhibit is to draw attention to the life forms which are disappearing rapidly from our world. Although some extinction is normal, about 1 species per 1,000,000 per year, the current rate is many times greater. Most endangered species are essential to life as we know it. The honey bee, for example, is necessary to transmit pollen and is crucial to agriculture. Oak trees, another example, are necessary to hold soil in place, to provide food and shelter for other animals and insects, and more. The loss of each species means life is more precarious for many other life forms.

This judged exhibit gives artists of all ages opportunities to improve hone their artistic skills, think creatively, learn more about the extinct and endangered, and explore ways each individual can contribute to lessen the endangering of living things. It also provides artists the satisfaction of knowing they are doing something positive in the face of what seems an overwhelming situation.

“Extinct and Endangered” runs through the month of September. The Astoria Art Loft, 106 Third Street, Astoria, OR, is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and other times by appointment.

This months Saturday Art Walk show
features

Photographer Andrew E. Cier and

Paper Collage Artist Jennifer Goodenberger

The work of Andrew Cier has been widely published nationally. His photographs have appeared in numerous books, calendars, regional guides, posters, brochures, audio-visual presentations, textbooks and postcards.

Creating “timeless” works of art, utilizing images and printing techniques that will not become dated is the aim of Andrew E. Cier. His imagery is meant to be enjoyed as pieces that uniquely portray an evocative mood or feeling. The perfect combination of subject with process, whether antique photo process or modern alternative process, adds to the emotional impact and individuality of each work of art. The viewer can enjoy the singular beauty of Cier’s fine art photographs, whether landscape, portrait, illustration or still life, as seen through his eyes and the lens of his camera. “I enjoy creating thoughtful, mood evoking images.”

Cier is best known for his photographic image, “Ocean In View, O! the Joy!” for the 4th in the series of Bicentennial Nickels debuting in 2005.

Jennifer Goodenberger is an accomplished visual artist, having shown in numerous West Coast galleries. Inner and outer journeys to landscapes of the mind and spirit are her continual inspirations. Her influences include medieval illuminated manuscripts, crop circles, archetypal symbols, sacred geometry, and designs from ancient and world cultures. She currently is focusing on collages with paper.

Jennifer also has a “day job.” She is a concert pianist, composer, and recording artist, with 8 recordings of solo piano music.

You’ve Been Framed: History of Picture Frames

Do you ever look around your home or place of business and discover something you hadn’t noticed before? How about picture frames? Could you describe the frames in your home? Chances are that you take the frames for granted, eh?

Picture frames hold a key place in the world of art. The first frame still in existence dates to A.D. 50 – 70 and was found in an Egyptian tomb. It still protected and decorated a portrait. Later, frames were used mainly for religious art, especially in the 11th and 12 centuries in Gothic cathedrals. They formed part of the architecture and surrounded the sculpture, carvings, stained glass, paintings near or on the altars. These architectural frames were massive, ornately carved, and permanent.

Later, in the 12th and 13th centuries, the wealthy incorporated frames, usually for non-religious art in their villas and palaces. These generally were massive, hand carved, extravagantly decorated, often gilded, and were works of art in themselves. The styles of the frames reflected the interior styles of each period and each country or city state. They were usually made by the artist who created the artwork.

Toward the end of the Renaissance, wood workers, called cobblers, created most of the frames. They were artists in their own right and their frames can be found today in museums. Some of the famous frames are the tabernacle, casseta, sansovina, trumeau, Chippendale, etc., and in the styles of baroque (Italy, Spain) and rococo (France).

Frames created in the American colonies tended to be simpler, more like the Dutch frames of earlier centuries. Gradually, frames in the colonies began to reflect the European styles.

Today, frames come in various styles but tend to be simpler than in the past. They are made of wood, metal, plastic, plaster, and other materials. The medium used in a piece of art often dictates the type of frame. Watercolors, pastels, acrylics, collages are usually framed simply so that the artwork is complimented. Sometimes, oils and acrylics are framed in ornate frames.

Start noticing picture frames wherever you go. You may be surprised by what you see.
