On December 2nd Karla Chambers, artist and farmer, will present a new body of work in a solo exhibition at Gallery 444 in San Francisco. The show will include new paintings that are inspired by aspects of her everyday life in the rural Willamette Valley in Corvallis, Oregon. The paintings present landscapes that direct the viewer to gaze upward to the changing Oregon skies and the distinctive silhouettes of Mount Jefferson, Mount Hood and Mary's Peak, while standing firmly on the fertile soil of Oregon's Willamette Valley. Each painting is an expression of the exuberance produced by healthy, bountiful harvests at Karla Chambers' Stahlbush Island Farms.
The work will hang for the month of December at Gallery 444. The opening on Dec. 2nd will feature samplings of Stahlbush fruits and vegetables made by renowned chef Isa Jacoby as well as a curator talk by Annice Jacoby. The show is from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
