Russo Lee Gallery | Portland, OR
February 6 – 29, 2020

For the month of February, the gallery is excited to feature Weave by the multi-disciplinary artist Dana Lynn Louis. This exhibition has been in process for the last two years and is a combination of Louis’s work abroad at ‘Thread’—an artist’s residency in Senegal, West Africa—and Gather:Make:Shelter, a citywide creative collaborative in Portland, OR. Both projects aim to enrich the lives of those in their community through creative practice and artistic pursuits with a focus on collaboration, engagement, skill-building, and connection. According to the artist, “All of this work is related as I weave together life and work, which is a direct response to the energetic ties between all of us, thus lessening the miles between us conceptually and physically. It is increasingly important to me that all of my work, no matter its form, moves towards light, weaving us together and creating levity and beauty along the way.”
