Lisa Copenhagen Wachs Painting Selected for "Spirit of Our NW Forests" Exhibit Poster

(Tumalo, Ore) "Evening Aura," an oil painting by Lisa Copenhagen Wachs, was recently selected to be featured on the poster for "The Spirit of Our NW Forests" exhibit at the Central Oregon Community College Barber Library Rotunda Gallery.

The exhibit, which honors the college's forestry program, focuses on the beauty of wood, wildlife and water within the forest environment. The works of more than 40 artists from Central Oregon, Eugene, Springfield and Seattle were selected. The exhibit includes works in stone, oil, watercolor, pastels, wood and bronze.

"The Spirit of Our NW Forests" show was juried by local painter, Ken Roth, who studied under master Sebastian Capella. His paintings, which reflect his interest in nature, light and color, are shown in galleries throughout the West.

Inspired by old-growth ponderosa and juniper on her property in Tumalo, "Evening Aura" is one of two Copenhagen Wachs oil paintings chosen by Roth for the exhibit.

"The Spirit of Our Northwest Forests" exhibit will be displayed at the Library Rotunda Gallery through Oct. 25.
