Fans of mid-century inspired art, prepare to swoon. Portland artist George Perrou‘s work is reminiscent of backdrops from the Road Runner animated series, if it had been set in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, on one of his previous visits to Click!, George sited his inspiration as coming from “the cartoons of the 60s that were in reruns in the 70s”.

Graystone Mortgage: Works by Debbi Murray 5p-8p

4726 42nd Ave SW

Debbi Murray is an artist, graphic designer and avid mountain biker. She has a BFA from Shepherd University in Shepherdstown, West Virginia – an ant-sized town straddling the Potomac River. She grew up skittering from one place to another and suffers from “Peter Pan Syndrome” by never, ever, wanting to grow-up. She still loves crayons, kaleidoscopes and all things whimsical and small.

After 20 years as a graphic designer she decided to throw some paint on a canvas and see what was revealed. A passion for the freedom of creative expression and a fondness for the unexpected, drove her to pursue this direction.

Debbi lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband and their 2 mischievous cats – Pepper and Dexter. When she’s not riding, painting or awaiting her muse, she combats artistic inertia with champagne and chocolate.

I paint from the inside out. Exploring emotional connections and the clash of light and dark, where shadows live within us.

Acrylics, markings and collage elements are combined to form layers and texture—creating an intricate landscape upon which concepts are expressed. I am drawn to vibrant color. I don’t shy away from the dark. Happy colors lurk and evoke the emotional struggle—a paradox united on canvas.

“Color creates channels of mood and is an expression of both the concrete and the vague. There is a deep connection with process and expression revealed in the juxtaposition of these two abstractions. A flexibility of both spirit and medium.”

Food and refreshments will provided. We look forward to seeing you!
