ART: Lynn Rothan “Harvest Series” Oil Paintings
Local artist Lynn Rothan, a longtime fixture in the Central Oregon creative community, exhibits new works throughout May. The “Harvest Series,” oil paintings on wood (approximately 11”x17”) are inspired by autumn seed collection and garden harvesting.
Painter, teacher, mentor, collaborator, Rothan says she believes “That it is the birthright of every human being to communicate who they are.”
Rothan works in diverse media with a focus on oils. She also collaborates with other artists across disciplines. In early 2009, Lynn worked with industrial designer and brother, Matt Rothan, on a pet project of native Dominicans Oscar de la Renta and Julio Iglesias: the creation of hundreds of large-scale banners now gracing a new International Airport in the Dominican Republic.
Locally, Rothan collaborated with Bend artist Bob Sant and several of her art workshop students to create an immense snow sculpture, “Ali Babba,” for the Bend Winter Festival. Rothan also collaborated with Sant on a project celebrating several generations of Bend history: A three-ton floating swan that ferried former beauty queens across Mirror Pond to commemorate the water pageants of decades past.
