Earth+Feather features vibrant mixed media paintings and paper mache sculpture by Bend, Oregon artist, Shelli Walters. With an accent on birds, this new work emerges from Shelli's love for the Earth and wild creatures. "Spending time listening to my feet crunching along a dirt path and catching a glimpse of a bird or coyote are not only a joy but crucial to my well-being. Animals hold such wisdom and the landscape such mystery. I love expressing this connection in my art and sharing the sense of oneness and wonder I find in nature."

Visit Tumalo Art Company in Bend Oregon's Old Mill District to enjoy the show in-person during the month of May. Work will also be available online.

In a time when we may be feeling especially isolated, Water Echo is a vibrant visual connection to nature and the world around us.

"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.” 

This new collection of mixed media paintings explores the powerful energy and movement of water flowing through rivers, lakes, seas — and our souls. Layers upon layers of thoughts, stories, experiences, moods — shifting one over the other — sometimes revealing a hint of what is underneath. This has become my signature voice and style. Alternating layers of acrylic paint and collage to create richly textured, colorful and uplifting pieces that invite you to look closer and discover your own story.

In lieu of a traditional First Friday reception while Tumalo Art Company is under temporary Covid closure, we invite you to enjoy the show online or by private showing. Acquire the art you love at the gallery's online art store and enjoy free shipping of any artwork in the Water Echo show.
