Exhibits inspired by conflict, struggle, human condition

Lunaria Main Floor Gallery presents the shows, Days Passing Like a Shadow, by Lunaria member Deborah Unger and Portraits of Inspiring Women in Classic Style: Part One by Lunaria member Anne Shams Oct. 5 – 31. Opening Reception is Oct. 7, 7 – 9 p.m. at the gallery, 113 N. Water St., Silverton. There also will be an Artists Talk, Oct. 22, 5 p.m. 

Unger’s small-scale, figurative wood sculptures are carved from basswood and often dressed in clothing which she creates. Her work is metaphoric, with themes centered around the personal and interpersonal conflicts which one experiences throughout life. She has a Bachelor’s of Fine Art from PNCA and lives in Mt. Angel. 

Shams’s portraits of Inspiring Women are in traditional icon form. They tell holy stories: stories of women who have spoken in the prophetic voice, calling out the crises of their times, then shouldering the burden of repair. They have faced or now face struggles that confront women of today: gender and racial identity, cultural and economic barriers, and barriers to women’s autonomy, education, and achievement.

Guest artist Tomasz Misztal earned his Master of Fine Art and a PhD from the Academy of Fine Art in Gdansk, Poland. His art is figurative with abstract elements focused on expression of the human condition and spirit. Primarily a sculptor, he works in ceramic, plaster, bronze and mixed media as well as carved wood and stone. He also will be showing his dry point print.
