The upcoming exhibit at the Chessman Gallery is an exploration of the human face by five local artists: clay artists Sam Jacobson and Julie Fiedler, mosaic artist Mary Tapogna, mixed media/ collage artist Maria-Esther Sund and painter Erik Seeger.

The opening reception will take place on Oct. 11 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Chessman Gallery, inside the Lincoln City Cultural Center. There will be wine, refreshments and a chance to meet the artists. The exhibit will be up through Nov. 4.

Making faces is a naturally introspective and projective process, and viewing the artwork in this show is bound to be absorbing for the gallery audience, as well. Whether incorporated into three-dimensional masks, busts or relief mosaics or painted on paper — this crowd of faces will express four approaches with four different mediums and five visions of the powerful attraction of the human face.

The Chessman Gallery is inside the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 540 NE Hwy. 101 in Lincoln City. For more information about this show or any of the many events going on at the Lincoln City Cultural Center, call 541-994-9994, head to lincolncity-culturalcenter.org, or become a friend on Facebook.
