From a Garden of Gourds to Artistic Storytelling in Lincoln City
Published: 10/24/2018

Pacific Artists' Co-op Gallery in Lincoln City, Oregon is featuring Storytelling, a three-month display of new work that tells the artist's story.

Depoe Bay artist Sheryl Jones transforms the lowly gourd into an object of collectible art. Jones is a new artist at the gallery and has used hard-shell gourds as her art medium for more than 15 years. From planting the seeds in her garden to the process of preparing, drawing, carving, burning and coloring the gourd, she crafts a story on each piece. Once considered just a craft from the ancient traditions of indigenous peoples, gourd art has increased in popularity and is now featured at galleries nationwide. Pacific Artists' Co-op Gallery, 620 NE Hwy 101, Lincoln City (541) 557-8000
