“Change,” a two-person exhibit of paintings and illustrations by Caitlynn Abdow and new mixed media installations by Quire, will be on view at the Multnomah Arts Center Gallery beginning July 7. Abdow will be showing her series called The Wheel of the Year and Quire showing her series The Science of Change. Using different but complimentary methods both Abdow and Quire invite the viewer to consider change and how they experience it in both nature and their internal lives. An opening reception will be held in the gallery Friday, July 7, 7-9pm. The exhibit may be seen through and closes at 5pm August 1.

Abdow’s series The Wheel of the Year consists of eight paintings representing eight points throughout the solar year. She researched folklore, rituals and archetypes relevant to the changing seasons and drew on creatures from story as well as the local landscape to create her images. The experience of walking around her installation of the Wheel of the Year mirrors the cycle of life, death and rebirth.

Quire’s The Science of Change is comprised of five installations. The work in each installation is based on a filmed interview with an individual sharing a story of significant change in their life. From each filmed interview Quire took three expression stills and reinterpreted one into an acrylic painting, the second into an embroidered piece on transparent fabric and the third an etching into plexiglas. Viewers can watch each interview by streaming them on handheld devices using the QR codes displayed by each installation. The connection of streaming the interviews while experiencing the art installation in real time creates a conceptual bridge between modern forms of consumable digital media and traditional fine art.
