Adventures in art

Randomly paired artists create works for The Blend exhibit Nov. 9

PENDLETON – Take two artists from different disciplines, put them together and see what kind of art happens. That’s the simple and exciting premise of the new Pendleton Artists Society show, The Blend. The exhibit is open Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by a reception with the artists from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Fall Creek Gallery in Pendleton.

"It should be a pretty interesting variety," said LaRisha Farrell, vice president of PAS.

About 24 brave souls among the membership of the more than 80-strong PAS drew names randomly a couple of months ago to pair up and collaborate on art that both challenged and combined their talents and visions. The exercise drew the artists together, and helped them to bond and to explore new artistic territory.

“It’s building relationships,” said photographer LaRisha Farrell. "It's been fun."

Oil painter Katy Burke was initially reluctant to participate, but threw her hat in the ring at the last moment. She's glad she did.

As the names were drawn and artists were paired up, the possibilities grew.

“Kind of immediately you could see the wheels turning,” said Burke.

Burke and Farrell were paired up through the project. The two knew each other only as casual acquaintances through PAS. After meeting and collaborating on their projects at least once a week, however, the artists are now comfortable friends who have a better understanding of each other’s work.

“First, we determined what our skill sets were,” said Burke. From there, the artwork blossomed. Farrell was exploring photo transfers at the time, and that was incorporated into the project. They both even branched out into new territory, making their own paper for the projects they envisioned.

“We had a lot of trial and error,” said Farrell.

Last week, the two artists had five works on the table, some still in progress. They were sorting out how they wanted to mount them, and which ones to select for the exhibit.

  • Bailey, Jim mug Jim Bailey: Wages were much less back then, but so were prices If you have any questions about what economists mean by inflation, just look at yesterday’s buying power. Those old western movies talked about wages of $1 a day. That wouldn’t even buy a burger at a fast food joint today by the time sales tax is added in.
