New art exhibition opens in Lindgren Gallery

All are invited to a free art exhibition featuring Portland artist Erika Rier in the Lindgren Gallery, open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. The show, titled “A Fork in the Road,” will be on display Monday, Feb. 3, through Friday, Feb. 28.

Rier will give an artist talk at the Chehalem Cultural Center at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 10, followed by a reception in the gallery from 7 to 8 p.m.

Rier is a self-taught artist working mostly in inks and paints on paper in a style she calls “folk surrealism.” After many years of oil painting and designing clothes, she shifted her focus to works on paper. She creates pieces that draw viewers in with their bright colors and delicate line work, but as the viewer delves deeper into the piece they find themselves immersed in a complex narrative.
