Jun 10-Jul 3 Darren Orange: Under The Surface, abstracted landscapes in oil, inspired by the power of the lower Columbia River where it meets the Pacific Ocean. Jul 8-Aug 8 Cynthia Lahti: Haunt. Lahti, a recent recipient of a prestigious Leon Gottlieb Foundation grant, brings mixed media drawings depicting areas around the region--places etched into to her own memory that are also significant to past generations of her family. Aug 12-Sep 5 Christos Koutsouras: Venetian Red for Despina. Celebrating our 5th anniversary with Christos Koutsouras's third solo exhibition at Imogen. Koutsouras brings a series of oil paintings exploring the lore of a fading fishing industry in the area.
