September's featured artist is Marlis Badalich, who says, "Oil painting is my medium. Each time the mind applies concepts to the world, the concept is revealed to only be partly true, within a certain context; thus the mind continually revises these incomplete concepts so as to reflect a fuller reality."
Her show is titled "Existential Overlay." In her own words: "This is somewhere between self and no self, here and now, and impermanence and forever."
"To celebrate the LGBT arts community and the opening of the Wayward Lamb next door, the New Zone will spotlight a collection of artists' photos and bios of Lane County queer artists on the alley side window though September 19th."
Spotlight artist Margie Templeton's work as a therapist and the time she's spent living abroad have deeply influenced the way she interprets imagery and how she works with color, texture and form. She spends half the year living in Eugene, focusing on ceramics and watercolors. The other half of the year she lives in Bali, Indonesia, where she focuses on oil painting.
"I am grateful I did not let self-consciousness keep me from pursing art. I encourage others who feel self-conscious about their artistic ability to overcome their fears and try taking an art class. The joy of creating is a precious gift."
Be sure to check out Margie Templeton's artist profile.
