Join Lori Goldstein, Program Manager of Arts Council of Lake Oswego, as she explores the complexities of Guernica.

Paula Kinney Portrait by Theresa Weil, Arts Council of Lake Oswego exhibit: Because She Cares

Because She Cares

Presenting 24 Portraits of Women who Lead Oregon’s Non Profits

October 28–November 12, 2014

First Friday special event November 7, 5–8 pm


Above: Paula Kinney Portrait by Theresa Weil. Paper collage, 2013.

Artist Statement: My art takes inspiration from my great aunts who were first-generation Italian-Americans whose creative spirit could be seen in the beautiful garments they created using salvaged materials from their life’s work as seamstresses and tailors in New York City’s burgeoning garment district. Like them, I take pride in creating work with my hands. Although I have explored many mediums such as printmaking, acrylic, oil and reverse glass painting, it is my cut-paper collage portraiture I now enjoy and create for clients. This collage technique, which I developed, brings joy and depth to my work along with a strong color palette expressing the spontaneity and vibrancy of the human spirit.
