Get up close and personal with the Charleston Shipyard!
Betsy Lewis offers an intimate look at the beauteous decay of the shipyard, docks and waterways of Charleston, Oregon. Her work is a unique mix of photography, paint, paper clay, salvage items of wood & rust, and wax encaustic processes.
“I have spent almost 2 years breathing in the sights and richness of the coast and taking hundreds of photographs, as well as scavenging the beaches and docks for my collage materials to create my work for this show. I am highly inspired by both the rugged and sublime textures and atmosphere of the Oregon Coast”, says Lewis.
The Opening Reception is March 5th, 2016, 1-3 pm at the South Slough Interpretive Center, 61907 Seven Devils Rd, Charleston Oregon.
The exhibition can also be viewed March & April 2016 at the Interpretive Center, Tuesday – Saturdays, 10 am – 4:30 pm.
The South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (South Slough NERR) is a 5,000-acre natural area located in the Coos estuary on the south coast of Oregon. The Reserve was designated in 1974 as the first unit of the National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS), a network of estuarine habitats protected and managed for the purposes of long-term research, education, and coastal stewardship.
