Open House: Wednesday, February 8 | Noon-6 pm
The Annex at the Bush Barn Art Center
Influenced by the Expressionists and many modernist movements, Corrine Loomis-Dietz loves to investigate the abstract reality of paint and process. This artist has been described as a “storyteller” as her work often chronicles family and friends in personal environments. As part of the Salem Art Association’s Artist-in-Residence program in the Annex, Loomis-Dietz intends to explore monotype and collagraph printmaking techniques. She looks forward to employing acrylic paint systems, plate and press options, and to collaborate with other printmakers in the community. Printmakers are invited to collaborate with the artist from 9 am-Noon on January 30 and February 6 for Monotype Mondays, and from 1-4 pm on February 1 and 8 for Collograph Wednesdays. Exhibitions at the Annex are free and open to the public.
Corrine Loomis-Dietz received a BFA from CWU with concentrations in painting and photography. Since 1999, Corrine has been a contract artist for GOLDEN Paints, teaching and lecturing about acrylic paint systems. This association with modern materials directly influences her work on many levels. Currently, Corrine balances her energies between her studio practice, lecturing and teaching throughout Oregon at art centers, colleges and universities.
