Styles flow together for “Convergence”

Lower-Kentucky-FallsTen puzzle pieces, ten artists and one painting is the concept behind “Convergence”. Multiple artists have joined their styles together to form one large work at Pacific Park Gallery, 1957 Thompson Rd., Coos Bay. The exhibit will hang through October.

The public is invited to an Artists Reception 5-8 p.m., Friday, Aug. 15 at the Gallery.
Artists were given one piece of a photograph produced by Patricia Davidson, Coos Bay. Without seeing the complete image, each artist produced a work using their puzzle piece as a source. The pieces have been joined together to create a 10 ft. by 6 ft. single work. The resulting work is a study in how different artists interpret a subject and how those styles can come together to present one interesting piece.
