Anna Harris and Shannon Ross are the featured artists for December at Gallery Calapooia. The show “Clever Creatures” runs from November 30th to December 27th, with a small reception on December 3rd.

Anna Harris:
Anna enjoys learning new ways to mix design, symbolism, and media throughout her compositions. Her main area of focus is studying and personifying nature.  Anna is passionate about the environment and the importance of biodiversity.  She enjoys abiotic and biotic relationships and often composes pieces in relation to intertwined connections.  In the show, “Clever Creatures”, mushrooms were chosen due to mycorrhizal, communicative network capabilities. 

Anna is a founding member of Gallery Calapooia.

Shannon Ross:
Shannon loves making ceramics that bring merriment and joy to everyday items. Her influences for her hand-built vessels and sculpture range from Art Nouveau illustrations of flowers to natural elements like birds, plants and animals. For her newest body of work, she was influenced by nature around her outdoor surroundings which includes an abundance of mushrooms in her garden, a hooting owl and the little bat that hung out behind a window shutter.   In this show “Clever Little Creatures” she has found some old collectable treasures that are later added which result in truly one-of-a-kind work.
