Artists’ reception scheduled for Friday, Dec. 1, 6-8 p.m.
VANCOUVER – The art exhibit Colors of Abstraction featuring the photography of Jeff Gracz and the paintings of Gregory Manin is on display at the Rebecca Anstine Gallery through February 2024.
The gallery is on the sixth floor of the Clark County Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St. It is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
A reception for the artists will be held at the gallery 6-8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1. The event is sponsored by the Clark County Arts Commission. It is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Self-taught photographer Gracz created the images in the exhibit using a multiple exposure setting on his camera. Between three and seven exposures are used to create each composition. The camera is purposely moved between each exposure. The camera then combines the different exposures into one image. The original subjects can be colorful buildings, tumbleweed, driftwood, stones—anything is fair game.
Manin was born in Seattle and raised in Hawaii, California and Portland. He studied art and English literature at Portland State University, while also studying ballet and other forms of dance. Manin says, “Art happens where the inner world and outer world meet. The blank canvas becomes a space imbued with the possibility of discovering that meeting-place and making it visible for others.”
