The Trickster Version of the Road Sign on the Trail of Tears

Trish Grantham, Amy Ruppel, Michael Paulus
Amy Ruppel made some of the most charming and seductive work of last year's Oregon Biennial. Combining digital painting and collage with birch and beeswax, her works are easy on the eyes and technically accomplished. Check out some of her new paintings this month at Newspace. The Newspace Gallery & Studio, 1632 SE 10th, 963-1935
