Three Easy Pieces

The new exhibit opening at Lunar Boy Gallery debuts with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 9, in conjunction with Astoria's Second Saturday Art Walk, and features a dynamic new series of oil paintings by local artist Jill McVarish. Lunar Boy Gallery has long adhered to an overall theme of being the place where serious art meets real fun, and the gallery reports this new show by McVarish hits the mark.

McVarish is a classically trained artist who graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1993, then studied at the prestigious Garett Rietveld Acadamie in Amsterdam, where she was influenced by the works of the Dutch masters, especially Rembrandt. It was here that McVarish blended her passion for contemporary art with a reverence and admiration for more traditional painting techniques.

The work that McVarish has brought forth for this show, "Three Easy Pieces," is simultaneously seriously skilled and smartly entertaining. The paintings are, in combination, what could be described as a clever creative concoction. Imagine a children's flip book, beautifully rendered in oil paint and comprised of elegant, imaginary and fantastical characters... and yes, they can actually be rearranged in the frames, as they hang, on the wall. They are available in requisite sets of three: one head, one torso and one pair of legs. Be the first to compile your favorite combo.

Lunar Boy Gallery is located at 1133 Commercial St. For more information, call (503) 325-1566 or visit www.lunarboygallery.com
