Paintings by Stephen Hermansen and sculptures Linda Dyer.

In the 2nd floor Magazines and Newspapers room - Nov. and Dec.

Paintings by Stephen Hermansen
Says artist Stephen Hermansen, “Light and perspective are the two most common themes in my paintings. The elusive nature of light in particular can transform a landscape. I seek to capture a single moment in time with vividness and clarity. My current collection includes local places I have lived or explored, particularly Eugene and Cottage Grove. I like to paint streets and scenes that I find appealing. They can be ordinary or iconic places, they just have to interest me. I am hoping that the viewer will be drawn in, like I am.” 

Sculptures by Linda Dyer
Linda Dyer exhibits sculptures of “Old Friends,” many of them animals. An award-winning artist, Dyer studied under R. Estebanez, the official sculptor for Cuban President Batista. Her pieces are formed in water-based clay, hollowed out, fired, sealed, stained with a handmade patina, then mounted on a hard-wood base. Each piece is handmade and one of a kind. 


In the 1st floor Children's Center - Nov. and Dec.
“Tlacololeros Dancers from Guerrero, México,” an exhibit by Mexican photographer Maricela Figueroa Zamilpa, and a collection of children’s dishes of the early 1900s from the collection of Merle Bottge. Plus art and displays Eugene Miniature Club, and the Multicultural Children’s Art Museum and Education Center/Little Owl School of Arts.
