The Spirit of Our Northwest Forests opened in the Library Rotunda Gallery on September 17 and ran until October 25, 2007. This exhibit featured over 40 talented artists from Central Oregon, Eugene, Springfield, and Seattle. The featured art mediums included: stone, oil, watercolor, pastels, wood, bronze and more. The show was juried by local painter, Ken Roth. Ken's paintings reflect his interest in nature, light and color. He studied under master Sebastian Capella. His work is represented in galleries throughout the west. Ken chose the poster piece for the show, "Evening Aura," oil on panel, by Lisa Copenhagen Wachs. It was inspired by old growth ponderosa and juniper on her property in Tumalo.
