Barry Pelzner
April 1 - April 26, 2003

The beautiful changes us. This is the theme of Barry Pelzner's latest oil crayon drawings. Rather than merely depicting quotidian alterations to the Portland-area landscape, Pelzner strives to convey the sublime. Pelzner has borrowed the title of this show from one of Richard Wilbur's 1947 poems. This poem can be found in Barry's artist's statement.
