An exhibit of abstract paintings by Mike Hascall, titled "A Year of Exploration," is showing at Central Oregon Community College's Pence Pinckney Gallery from March 5-27, with an opening reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 5. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at 2600 NW College Way in Bend.
The Seattle-area artist is a highly regarded painter who helped found Artech Fine Art Services, a Washington-based company that began in 1977 and employs artists to ship and install art for galleries and collectors.
The works in the exhibit date from February 2019.
"I see anxious landscape, puzzles and obscured vision, but also humor and the deep energy in the natural world," he said.
Hascall received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Yale University.
