A Colorful Wonderful Show

I would like to put in a plug for my friend R. Keaney Rathbun's show, "Sacred Moments." The work is joyous, playful and thoughtful. Filled with pattern and color, Keaney's work captures the celebratory moments of every day. Working in stained glass, needlepoint, sculpture, and silkscreen printmaking, Keaney has assembled a personal Book of Hours, and installed it all to resemble a chapel, complete with altar table. This work is the culmination of nine years and draws on personal experiences which become universal. It is truly a wonderful life celebration. I invite you all to visit the show at the Waterstone Gallery in Portland, Or. at 424 NW 12th Ave. Gallery hours are Wed.-Sat.12-6 and Sun. 12-4. The show closes on August 1. My apologies to Keaney for these photos. They just can't hold a candle to the real thing.Images are: "Daydream Believer, Campfire Stories, and Protective Coloration."
