Two Artists Collaborate
An exhibition of paintings by Sam Roloff and Shawn Webber
Opens October 6, 2016
It’s not every day a painting tells the story of a 24-year friendship, thousands of miles of highway traveled, and an intimate aesthetic exchange—all while commenting on topical issues ripped from the day’s headlines. But that’s what the paintings do in “Two Artists Collaborate,” my new exhibition with Shawn Webber at White Space Gallery in Portland. I’d like to invite you attend the show and consider running a review and/or feature story about our unique collaboration.
While some people know me from my appearances on my brother’s hit reality show, “Little People, Big World,” on TLC, art lovers in Portland and beyond know me as a prolific painter with a penchant for social commentary. My friend and collaborator Shawn Webber is a respected Bay Area-based painter and member of the trail-blazing art collective, The Oyster Pirates. Together we traded 13 paintings back and forth over the course of a year in a collaborative project blending our individual styles together in unexpected ways. The finished works are sexy, subversive, and just a little bit sinister.
Please see below and attached the press release for the exhibition, which runs October 6, 2016 through December 1, 2016, at White Space Gallery, 1439 NW Marshall Street, Portland, OR. Shawn and I are both available for interviews, Q&A, human-interest features, podcasts, etc.
Thanks in advance for your interest,
