Now On-View in the EMU Aperture Gallery:
Your Value Comes From Within by Sophie Navarro, UO Masters in Arts Management, Spring ‘18. Sophie Navarro started creating her designs in her early 20’s creating a collection of illustrations which turned into cards, prints and magnets. She has been actively promoting her artwork for over 35 years in Eugene, Oregon. Her primary focus is creating a new series of designs and will have an assortment of T-Shirts and prints for art festivals, Art Walks, galleries and special art events. Sophie draws her inspiration from meditating regularly, yoga practice, fashion, flowers, and textiles and often makes up designs within minutes. She balances her time between motherhood, a full-time job and creating more artwork.
Artist Statement: This series represents the value that comes from within ourselves. Solitude teaches us to go inward, taking in the quiet moments that are often taken from us from the outside world and teaches us to pause. These paintings represent my desire to hold onto my identity and celebrate by going inward. I create my own inclusivity by accepting myself with all my patterns, ideas, inspiration and colors. My value comes from within not outside of myself. I remind myself this every day and to not allow others to define who I am. I am beautiful inside and out, colorful patterns unravel and I am whole.
Start your day off with a nice cup of hot cocoa and finish it with a gorgeous view of Oregon's hidden gem of a waterfall. Other beuatiful sights will be seen along the way, including Oregon's second highest waterfall and Too Much Bear Lake. Bring lots of layers as it can get a bit chilly along the hike!
