“I See Yellow” is a series of paintings by Tom Relth that explores composition difficulties and pigment challenges, and you can see the whole sunshiny collection at Three Creeks Community Library through Sept. 24. Relth will give a special presentation about the exhibit at the library from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 15.
The artist’s talk will include complimentary light refreshments and a chance to meet the artist and ask him questions about his process, his inspiration, his medium, and his style. Relth is an accomplished artist in many mediums, but he gained widespread recognition for his striking collage portraits, created from thousands of magazine pages, cut into tiny strips. Many of Relth’s works can also be seen at Boomerang, where he served as a curator for the coffee shop’s rotating art displays.
All library events and programs are open to the public and absolutely free to attend. Registration is not required. Three Creeks Community Library is located at 800-C NE Tenney Rd. in the Salmon Creek area of Vancouver, near Fred Meyer.
