Issue 5 - Spring 1998





Cover Art & Artist

Theresa Sharrar is an artist from Silverton, Oregon, where she lives surrounded by nature with her family, animals and gardens. “I long to express the beauty and magic I feel from the earth. Each painting is like giving birth and I love it into being.” About the front cover oil painting ‘Urban Indian Girl’ she says “it is an image that grew over a period of years. There was no preconceived plan for it. Along with having an artist friend model, I used a dream I had about big dark buildings looming overhead. These elements combined have created for me a work portraying strength and hope amidst destruction and despair.”

Theresa Sharrar’s work can be seen at Lunaria Gallery in Silverton, an artists’ co-op of which she is a member. For information: Lunaria Gallery, 106 S. First Street, Silverton (open 10am to 6pm daily), (503) 873-7734.
