After completing a year at Yakima Valley Museum as the 2016-17 Artist in Residence, Tom Chet Hausken relocated his home and studio to Ashland, Oregon this year. An abstract painter, Tom speaks plainly about his painting, referring to it as a vocation, stating that the subject of his paintings is the paint, itself. Working in layers and leaving traces of marks and guiding lines his minimal compositions reveal his process of investigation. In this talk Tom speaks eloquently about this investigation in his series, A Sense of Place. Tom's work will be featured in July. Join us for an artist's reception Friday, July 6th, 5-8 p.m. Show runs July 5th-31st.
