Fiber artist Pat Spark and jeweler Linda Herd, both of Albany, will be featured artists during October at Gallery Calapooia, 222 First Ave. W., Albany.
An artists’ reception, featuring their work along with 17 other mid-valley artists will be held Friday, Oct. 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. Wine, beer and snacks will be served. It is free.
Spark is a felt maker, teacher, and an author of books on felting. She creates naturally dyed and botanically printed silk scarves.
The inspiration for Herd’s jewelry designs comes from materials, environments, and lifestyles. Her work with copper and silver has a boldness of scale, texture and color.
Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. The gallery is a nonprofit organization and donations to it are tax-deductible. For more information, see gallerycalapooia.com or call 541-971-5701.
