Paintings by Jeffrey Hall on Display at the Hillsboro Civic Center
The City of Hillsboro Cultural Arts Division is pleased to announce an exhibition of mixed-media paintings by Jeffrey Hall. The exhibition, curated by Cultural Arts staff, will be on display in the Hillsboro Civic Center’s Shirley Huffman Auditorium and adjacent gallery wall September 1 – October 26. The Civic Center is located at 150 E. Main St. in Hillsboro, and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
In this collection, unexpected textures, colors, and lines give shape to the unique, mixed-media landscapes of Hall’s new work. Using items rescued from the waste-stream, the artist’s process includes dumpster diving and salvaging materials from flea markets and the Re-Store, which benefits Habitat for Humanity.
A lifelong Oregonian, Hall enjoys re-purposing industrial and organic materials in his art making process. His surface stratification explores real and imagined space, while leaving room for the viewer’s own interpretations.
“I enjoy both nature and technology,” he says. “How can we solve our collective problems embracing technology without ending our existence?”
Hall found his passion for art at Hillsboro High and attended Portland State University. After working in the graphic arts industry for over 27 years, he is now focusing on fine art. Hall’s work is collected locally and internationally, and he is an original member of the Washington County Arts collective The Green Cab.
