The foyer gallery at Lakewood Center will exhibit the art of Jani Hoberg and Loren Nelson from this Sunday through Sept. 8.

A printmaker, Jani Hoberg uses the Renaissance era process Intaglio to create images with attention to line quality, balance and composition. Drawing on a grounded copper plate, which is then placed in acid, infused with ink and put through a hand run printing press creates the work on paper. Hoberg is inspired by the immediate world around her.

A graduate of University of Oregon with a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking, Hoberg is a member of the University of Oregon Advisory Board to the Art and Architecture School, and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society. Her work is found in collections at the University of Oregon, the Gilkey Print Collection at the Portland Art Museum and the Lessedra Gallery Collection in Sophia, Bulgaria. Currently her work can be seen at the Attic Gallery, the NW Prints Council and Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery. Hoberg’s work will be exhibited at the LOCAL 14 show this October and in the Holiday Gallery at the 510 Museum & ARTspace with the Arts Council of Lake Oswego.

Photographer Loren Nelson uses frosted glass to compose graceful film photographs in natural and urban settings. Often inspired when working in the garden or walking his dog, Nelson doesn’t mind getting his knees dirty in order to capture botanicals, landscapes and seascapes out in nature rather than in a studio.

Using a traditional darkroom, he transfers film into limited edition, selenium-toned, silver gelatin prints.

Nelson’s photographs are in numerous public and private collections, including at Oregon State University, the Portland Art Museum in Portland and the Portland Visual Chronicle. He currently serves on the board of the Portland Photographer’s Forum and has been published in both Shots Magazine and Black and White Magazine. Nelson has also exhibited pieces at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and at the Architectural Heritage Center in Portland. Nelson is represented by the Wall Space Gallery in Santa Barbara, Calif. and Seattle, Wash., the Art Elements Gallery in Newberg and by the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery in Portland. You will find Nelson’s work at the Holiday Gallery at the 510 Museum & ARTspace with the Arts Council of Lake Oswego this November and December.

Lakewood Center for the Arts is located at 368 S. State St. in Lake Oswego.

Loren Nelson will display his photographs including this piece titled Allium  at Lakewood Center Sunday through Sept. 8.
