What you’ll find: Sculptural works by artists exhibited in the Gallery Without Walls outdoors sculpture program.
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is proud to present an invitational sculpture exhibition featuring 15 sculptors whose works have become part of the visual landscape in Lake Oswego. The featured artists represent the strong legacy of Lake Oswego’s public art program, and they are not only exhibited locally, but regionally and nationally as well. Art can be a powerful emotional experience, as these sculptures soon become familiar friends to residents. Gallery Without Walls pieces provide enjoyment disguised as landmarks, way-finders, interactive experiences, and educational tools to all who reside in or visit the area. Lori Goldstein, Program Manager for the Arts Council’s Gallery Without Walls Program, says, “Lake Oswego is like a sculpture oasis. The incredible number of sculptures that Lake Oswego proudly displays in both the rotating program as well as the permanent art program is unlike any other city I have visited. You can go almost anywhere within city limits and find art that is free to access and enjoy.”
A number of artists shown in the Visual Chronicle are included in the City’s permanent collection. Alisa Looney is one whose work any Lake Oswegan would know by her red figurative sculpture, Going for Your Vision, sited at the intersection of Hwy 43 & Terwilliger. Other exhibitors have had pieces selected for exhibition numerous times, such as Dave Haslett. “What has made this a special program is that it is a model used by other cities throughout the Pacific Northwest, and is recognized nationally,” says Haslett. “It has been an honor to display my stone sculpture for the fifth time in sixteen years.” Like many of the Gallery Without Walls artists, he has remained very involved in the Program. Haslett is currently exhibiting his outdoor work, Crossroad of Eternity, on 2nd Street in downtown LO between A and B Avenues.
