Mayor Jerry Willey has announced the selection of the 2015 artwork for the Mayor’s Gift, Rood Bridge Park with Mid Century Modern Style, by Tualatin artist Anna Lancaster. The colorful oil painting on canvas was selected from 47 entries responding to the call for artwork that represents the characteristic landscape, city views or landmarks of Hillsboro. This year, the selection for the Mayor’s Gift was made based on viewing the twelve finalists on display at the Civic Center auditorium, rather than a PowerPoint show.
Lancaster’s paintings are characterized by rich color and textured surface created by using both a brush and a pallet knife to apply the oil paint. She hopes that the tactile qualities of her paintings stimulate the senses and touch the emotions.
