New Zone featured artist, Andrea Ros, is in love with color. She will be sharing with us her personal project, The Apocalypse Carousel. The Apocalypse Carousel is an attempt to draw focus to the harvest of greed and apathy that we are reaping today, to urgently redirect our attention to the beauty of life, and to conjure action. It is an invitation to mindfully engage and join the dance, no matter the outcome.
Her tapestries are currently on display at the Saatchi Gallery in London as well as in local galleries. She has exhibited at Lincoln Center, NYC, the Arc Gallery in San Francisco and the Alexi Era Gallery in St. Louis.
A cancer survivor and environmental activist, she is also participating in The Arlecchino Project, a global art project based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Wool Against Weapons, a 7-mile long art collaboration protesting nuclear weapons in the UK.
Demetra Kalams has been a New Zone member for seven years. She works primarily in watercolor, and paints landscapes, seascapes and still life- but is passionate about painting the figure.
She is an award-winning artist whose images appear on book and CD covers, and she is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon.
She has been juried into the Silverton Fine Arts Festival, which takes place August 15th and 16th.
