Phoebe Mc Afee, woven tapestry

Phoebe Mc Afee, woven tapestry

Phoebe McFee is a weaver of tapestries. She has been weaving since 1967, when she was 23 years old. “Early on I fell in love with tapestry. Now I am in my 70’s and have never stopped weaving. For 40 years I focused on large tapestries, mostly on commissions. My images based on the structure of weaving come from this time.” In 2004, she began to draw on the computer. Recent small tapestries woven in Portland have all come from computer drawings. Translating the vivid colors into yarns is new and delightful to her. Phoebe also has begun to weave words into her images. “I’ll see where that takes me. I am still evolving, still finding new things to say in warp and weft..

Carolyn Hazel Drake, "Sailboat" ceramic & mixed media

Carolyn Hazel Drake, “Sailboat” ceramic &mixed media

Carolyn Hazel Drake’s sculptures are a mix of porcelain and textiles, referencing the natural world and man-made devotional objects. Her recent work continues to explore the vessel, now in the form of the boat as a close cousin to the humble (but always evocative) pinch pot. “In response to a series of personal losses, I have been looking to ancient art that honors or tries to contextualize death. Greek tragedies and elegiac writing are also frequent source materials. The boat appears as an element of burial or transport to the underworld/afterlife in many cultural traditions. It speaks to the very human combination of longing and fear for what is beyond the horizon. I love the immediacy of pinching the clay, and I try to balance conceptual and expressive complexity with the seductive materiality of clay and cloth.”

Anna Wiancko-Chasman, "Horse" Mixed media

Anna Wiancko-Chasman, “Horse” Mixed media

Anna Wiancko works in clay, paint, mixed media, and found objects to create unusual and expressive sculptures and assemblages. She explores irony, humor and whimsy as a necessary part of that communication. “I was introduced to the natural world as a child, as my parents were both avid outdoors people and activists for the environment. I often took pencils and paper into the back country when we camped or stayed in our cabin in the High Sierras.” A deep love of art, nature and animals became rooted in her, and these dual passions have inspired and guided her. “I found that both animals and art were wonderful companions, which enabled me to express myself in ways I otherwise could not. When I lost my daughter to cancer, art helped give me strength and the courage to heal. However, I need, as most of us need, to balance the difficult messages with humor and play”.
