Pendleton Center for the Arts opens three exhibits, hosts reception


PENDLETON — Three exhibits will open at the Pendleton Center for the Arts, 214 N. Main St., with a reception for the artists from 5:30-7 p.m. tonight.

Peter Bryan will present Works on Paper in the East Oregonian Gallery. Bryan studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts and earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from Memphis College of Art.

His major art influences include DaVinci, Caravaggio, Jackson Pollock, James Lavadour and the art of the Southwest.

Local photographer Corrin Thompson unveils an exhibit of new work.

The invitation to exhibit at the Arts Center provided Thompson with an opportunity to look at how a series of images can tell a story.

The resulting photo essay was inspired by Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are.”

Additionally, work by students who participated in the Capture the Action collaboration with the Pendleton Round Up Association will be on display.

A dozen teenagers worked with local artist and educator Dave Remington to study the anatomy of horses, steers and bulls and look at vibrant ways of communicating the dynamic movement and energy of the large animals.

The project was funded by the Round Up Association and included classroom instruction as well as two days of sketching at the rodeo grounds during the 2013 Pendleton Round Up.

All three exhibits run through Nov. 3 and admission is free.
