Tide Charts: Ebb and Flow Mixed Media Works by James B. Thompson
Cannon Gallery of Art, Cannon Beach, OR - Cannon Gallery of Art at Western Oregon University, Monmouth. To Feb 25
For James B. Thompson, where the land met the sea was the space where everything changed but everything stayed the same. The Salem-based professor worked in fused glass as well as acrylics, and his paintings have a glassy feel, with translucent layers of color and muted tones setting off images of fishers and golfers. “I would like to think that these works played a role in tiding me over as I paused before heading for the next shore,” he joked before he died of cancer in 2019.
