Stop #4  7 PM | Sparrow Studios (136 E Broadway)

Unbound challenged artists, designers, and creatives in the Eugene-Springfield area to start or deepen their sketchbook or visual journal practice, resulting in a diverse collection of books that vary in size, medium, and purpose. The challenge launched in August 2019 and artists worked in their sketchbooks throughout the fall.

Through the practice of keeping a sketchbook or visual journal, Unbound encourages art as process rather than product, with an emphasis on creative exploration, idea generation, and experimentation. Freedom from perfection, expectations of “quality” or of creating a “finished product” are part of the process. The project encourages process-based art practice, creative thinking, and everyday mindfulness.

 Stop #5  7:30 PM | Oregon Art Supply (1020 Pearl St)

Erika Beyer shows an assorted body of work in this new show at Oregon Art Supply. Erika grew up in Oregon and is enthusiastic about exploring natural areas. The inspiration for many of her paintings comes from observing plants and animals near her home or while traveling. Erika describes her paintings as “scientific storytelling.” They allow her to play with time and space, speeding up and combining images to show an entire natural sequence, process, or story in a single illustration. She paints in watercolor and gouache on paper.

Erika works from her studio in Eugene. She has an undergraduate degree in geology and graduate degrees in scientific illustration and architecture. Erika currently teaches art and design at Oregon State University and Lane Community College.
