“War is Not the Answer,” by Robert Dozono, is an oil and garbage painting on canvas. Dozono’s exhibition, “Garbage Paintings and Other Works,” is opening this Saturday, Aug. 6, in the Runyan Gallery at the Newport Visual Arts Center.
“Garbage Paintings and Other Works” is the name of a new exhibition opening this Saturday, Aug. 6, in the Runyan Gallery at the Newport Visual Arts Center.
The featured artist is Robert Dozono, whose artistic career spans 50 years and multiple media. His upcoming exhibit showcases works in watercolor, charcoal, oil and garbage.
“The natural environment is very important to me,” Dozono said. “All these years I have reused objects that one cannot recycle — plastic items without numbers, wiper blades, rubber bands, toothpaste tubes, hair dryers, etc. — into my work. The river and their unfortunate interaction with humans are evident to me when I go fishing with my friends. Sometimes we try to carry out garbage others have left.”
Many of Dozono’s paintings are large river scenes of the Clackamas River and other areas of Oregon. “I attempt to foreground what we are doing to our natural resources by using a canvas layered with what is normally cast aside,” he said.
Dozono, a Portland-based artist, received his MFA from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, taught at Portland Community College from 1973 until his retirement in 2001 and has been affiliated with Blackfish Gallery since 1986. His work has been exhibited regionally and internationally, including Maryhill Museum of Art, Nikkei Legacy Center, Orange County Center for Contemporary Art and the Orkrensni Museum (Czeck Republic).
An opening reception for “Garbage Paintings and Other Works” will be held from noon to 4 p.m. this Saturday, with the artist speaking at 2 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display through Sept. 25.
The Newport Visual Arts Center, located at 777 NW Beach Drive, is open Wednesdays through Sundays, from noon to 4 p.m.
