The Betty Feves Memorial Gallery will exhibit the work of Walla Walla sculptor and painter Julian Raine from Nov. 3 through Dec. 4.
Instead of sculpting with clay, Raine does "found object sculpture." As the name implies, Raine takes common objects and "stitches them together into a work of art."
For "Chess set," Raine used nuts and bolts to form chess pieces. In other works, she uses an old pitch fork, sprockets, a pulley and a myriad of other objects.
Raine is also a painter and a poet. With her paintings, Raine explores the human condition. Many of her figures are in a state of misery and torment, their bodies curled from the inside out.
"My responsibility as an artist and my loyalty as an artist is with the people that suffer the most," Raine said.
Images of about 150 to 200 of Raine's paintings will be projected on the gallery wall from a slide projector.
The gallery is located inside Blue Mountain Community College's Pioneer Hall. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment by calling 278-5952. A meet-the-artist reception is planned for 2 p.m. Monday.
