Artist, designer and activist Euijin Gray will exhibit a collection of mixed media works — entitled “being. small. simple. green.” — throughout September at Thump Coffee in downtown Bend. Thump Coffee also will be open late for First Friday Art Walk on September 2.
According to Gray, her recent work is derived from spending several months in the temperate rainforest of Tennessee, where it is much greener than her high desert home of Bend. Inspired by many continuous days spent in the forest, the work displayed is very small in scale and utilizes acrylics, photos, drawings, handmade paper, wood, canvas and board.
Gray also works as a freelance visual designer under the name alpie design, primarily focused on logo design. In addition, Gray recently helped create a non-profit organization, theBedouins, an “artivism” for peace in the Middle East.
