Gary Westford: Lifeline (Phases Of The Moon) & The Artist’s Eye

Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Salem, OR - To Nov 16

by Joseph Gallivan

Salem-based Gary Westford is a narrative painter exploring social justice. His moon paintings show social and political events under various moons as if to say there’s nothing new under the sun, but perhaps…? Westford lived through the hippie era and has donated to the museum psychedelic posters and modern artworks, 30 of which are on show in the second exhibition. Westford will speak at 7:30 pm on June 20 in the Paulus Lecture Hall and at 12:30 pm on July 9 at the HFMA.
