Deck the halls and decorate the walls with small works of art by four local artists and handmade crafts from Ecuador.
• Tim Combs, as The Reclamation Project, works with materials found, reclaimed and recycled. He usually creates pieces of Asian aesthetics.
* Scott Jeff’s award-winning pencil drawings and pastel landscapes can be seen at juried festivals and one-man and group exhibits throughout the northwest.
• Lisa Sayles teaches at Clark College and exhibits artwork often with feminist subject matter. She has created over sixty abstract paintings for this show.
• Angelina Marino's vibrant paintings and sculptures can be seen in public commissions and corporate offices. In the enamel-on-copper series to be shown here, she transforms the tree in all possible colors and moods.
• Ana Maria Torres is an innovative glass artist from Ecuador who creates contemporary fused glass art, uniting natural elements - earth, wind, fire and water - and religious images.
The ProPueblo Foundation is providing work to many artisans in Ecuador, especially those carving tagua nut from the palm tree, also know as vegetable ivory.
