A Color-filled Birthday for Art4Truth

It’s been a couple weeks already since I attended the gallery opening and birthday event for my friend and teacher, Eugene abstract artist and funky musician Art4Truth (Will Paradis)!

It was funny because it was only a couple weeks prior I visited the Alluvium for another event outdoors and upon finding a set to enjoy my shave ice, looked up and saw Art4Truth performing on guitar. That day I never actually wandered inside the event space, so when I heard Will was having a gallery show opening AND it was on his birthday, I was thrilled to celebrate and get to learn more about the Alluvium.

In addition to wall-to-wall paintings, Will did a Q&A, there was a lovely spread of tasty snacks including the decadent tiramisu from Sweet Life, my personal kryptonite! With an interesting space and a wide variety of spiritual, artistic, and community support events, I look forward to many more visits to Alluvium. They also host figure drawing sessions on Tuesday nights, so hopefully I can get over my fear of drawing in public and attend a few!
