A show of 25 porcelain sculptures by AVK arts founder ELENA KARINA CANAVIER
opens FRIDAY DECEMBER 9TH at the Coos Art Museum. RECEPTION IS FROM 5-7 pm. You are all invited! Elena, "the Art Angel of Bandon", sponsored over 50 art shows in Coos County . She was also a consummate master-craftsman in her own right, with works in many museums, including the Oakland Art Museum, the Boston Museum, and the Smithsonian in Washington DC . These pieces have been stored in crates in the dream studio she and her husband were building on a mountaintop south of Langlois since her death in 2010. Shows are being planned for L.A. and N.Y. , but since the work was god-daughter and namesake Elena Karina Byrne agreed to have the first showing here at the Coos Art Museum. These photos were taken by Chloe Byrne, "Little Elena's" daughter. Sixteen more of Chloe's photographs will accompany the show, which is part of the museum's Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration. Please join us and meet  Elena and Chloe who have flown in from Los Angeles and New York for the occasion!
