James Anello: Impressions showcases pressed plants and highlights their traditional Native American uses. James Anello, a member of the Siletz tribe, was born and raised in Salem, has a degree in Anthropology from Eastern Oregon University, and has a life-long familiarity with western Oregon’s ecology. James preserves plants using a microwave plant press, which shortens the drying time and locks in the green chlorophyll in the leaves and stems. The results qualify as both scientific specimens and works of art.
Salem Art Association exhibitions are always free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday from 10 am-5 pm, and Saturday-Sunday from Noon-5 pm.
