Event Description:

A retrospective of Coos Bay artist and art teacher Donna Wright will be featured at Coos Art Museum.  The exhibition, which will be held in the Museum’s Uno E. Richter Atrium Gallery, runs from July 9 through October 1, 2016.  

Wright who has a forty year career as an artist and art teacher has exhibited widely in California and more recently along Oregon’s South Coast where she now resides. Largely self-taught, she approaches her works with a great deal of freedom and experimentation. “Donna Wright pours her paint onto her paper and lets the image – along with her intuition – lead the way.” Wright says, “Spontaneity and intuition are the tools I use to create. My work begins abstractly. I let the medium flow for a short time, as I decide whether to stop or to continue painting to one of several levels – semi-abstract to realism.”

Coos Art Museum has been a cultural focal point of Oregon’s scenic Southern Coast since 1966. It occupies an historic 1936 Art Deco US Federal Building in downtown Coos Bay. The Museum offers a wide range of arts activities including exhibitions, art classes, and lectures. Hours are 10:00am to 4:00pm, Tuesday through Friday and 1:00 to 4:00 pm on Saturday.
