Gallery show highlights multiple art mediums
The latest show at the Spiral Gallery was inspired by friendship.
Spiral Gallery members Annette Reisbick and Louise Stivers met at a local spinning group, and Reisbick though Stivers' photos would complement her fiber art pieces. The two have teamed up for the gallery's newest show, titled "Friends, Fiber and Fotos," which will be on display during November.
There will be an opening reception for the show from 6-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at the gallery, 341 S. Broadway St.
Along with several photos of lighthouses, Stivers' work also includes an "Eye of Estacada" series, where elements that make the town one-of-a-kind are framed in the shape of an eye. There are nine photos, including shots of the logger statue near City Hall, the Clackamas River, mushroom and murals.
"I moved to Estacada about five years ago and fell in love with the little town," Stivers said. "I looked for the special things that make Estacada different."
Reisbick's work includes knitted hats, shawls and ponchos. She created a variety of designs, including a poncho that resembles an avocado.
"That's a fun piece," she said.
Her favorite piece in the show is a poncho made from yarn a friend gave her.
"It was an amazing thing," Reisbick said. "My friend and I share a birthday, and on our birthday she brought the yarn to church."
Though there are many differences in their two mediums, Reisbick and Stivers pointed out several similarities between the two, including color.
They're looking forward to their show's opening night.
"(The best part will be) having friends and family here," Reisbick said.
