First Friday Reception, “Two Artists, Many Layers” – Marilyn Lindsley and Bill Thompson

Jeweler Marilyn Lindsley of Corvallis and vinyl artist Bill Thompson of Albany will be the featured artists during June at Gallery Calapooia, 222 First Ave. W. in downtown Albany. Their show, “Two Artists, Many Layers” will highlight the ways that they both work with layers to create their art.

Marilyn LindsleyLindsley will show a new line of her jewelry, which is a departure from the polymer clay
designs she has created for more than 20 years. She creates surface designs using layers of
clay with various textures and pigments but now adds aluminum bezels to the clay pieces.
The bezels are machined using computer-aided design software. The new work represents
layers of technology supporting layers of polymer clay art.

Bill Thompson
Thompson uses layers of thin sheet vinyl to create fine art images. He discovered the
process while attempting to cut a stencil for a multi-color screen print. Because accurate
alignment of each layer is critical, each picture is limited to 4 or 5 colors.

An artists’ reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 2, will feature the work of Lindsley and
Thompson, as well as 18 other mid-valley artists. Wine, beer and snacks will be served.
Gallery Calapooia is in its fourth year of operation. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Tuesday through Saturday. The gallery is a nonprofit organization and donations to it are tax deductible.

Gallery Calapooia - June

Bill Thompson Exhibit at City Hall in August

In the July Gallery Calapooia Newsletter that went out today, the wrong location was given for Bill Thompson’s August Exhibit. The show will be at Albany City Hall, not the main library as stated in the newsletter. Please stop by City Hall to enjoy Bill’s layered vinyl and copper repousse artwork during August.
