While Rhythm & Atmosphere is the title of the exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Adam Hurst, the Curator’s Event will give us the rare opportunity to hear the relationship of his music to his art. Adam Hurst is a cellist and an artist who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design. He performs his own music which also relates to the themes of Rhythm & Atmosphere.
Adam has performed in various locations in Portland and other cities in the US for over 15 years. He also brought his music to the people of various countries including Dubai, Turkey, Portugal, Italy and Germany. This will be the first time he has given a concert in the presence of his paintings and sculpture.
The exhibition and concert are FREE and OPEN to the public.
ArtReach Gallery presents "FROM ICELAND: Reading Asemic Writing," by Johann Viljalmsson. The exhibit runs from March 3 to April 28.
Join us for a FREE curator's event "Learning to Read and Write Again" will be led by Curator Dr. Sheldon Hurst.
Johann Vilhjalmsson incorporates asemic writing in his art. What is asemic writing? Why does he use this in his art? We will see what the artist does, see what other artists do, and then go into writing our own asemic poems as we are nudged by the creative urges of our own minds. It will be a light, enjoyable experience together.
This is a FREE event that is open to all. Refreshments will be served.
Artist James Bailey and Curator Sheldon Hurst will lead a discussion of the work on exhibition in the ArtReach Gallery on Saturday.

This free event is open to the public and light refreshments will be available.
Sunday February 4, 11:30 - 1:00 pm Open to Public
