Opening Reception of "We Blend" by Marlene Eichner & Daria Martinez

Currents Gallery

in McMinnville is excited to feature the work of mother/daughter team Marlene Eichner and Daria Martinez. They work in different artistic media, but have been sharing ideas and mutual critique for many years.  It's no surprise then how their work blends in concept, color and design.   Marlene is one of the gallery's owners, and makes one-of-a-kind wall art, pillows, purses, and screens, with themes ranging from extreme abstract to extreme realism.  Sheuses appliqué, free-hand machine embroidery, mosaic and quilt piecing techniques using the finest quality fabrics.  She also makes her own fabric from original art, both hand-dyed and printed.  Daria paints with watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel and ink, alone, and in various combinations to create art with a unique emotional perspective.  The show opens on October 16th and goes through November 12th. The public is invited to the opening reception during McMinnville's Art and Wine Walk on Saturday, October 21st.
