Elena Karina Canavier Porcelain Scuptures Exhibit


Friday, December 9, 2016 - 5:00pm

As you can see from reading FB blurb by Victoria Tierney , Elena Karina Canavier was an exceptional artist and person and had been building a studio in Langlois.


Here are some photos of the SWIMMERS series created by Elena Karina Canavier which will be in the show at the Coos Art Museum which opens next Friday . The reception is from 5-7, and admission is free on that night, so if you live nearby come join us! You'll get to meet Elena's god-daughter and namesake, Elena Karina Byrne, who is coming up from Los Angeles, and her daughter Chloe who is flying in from New York. Chloe took all these photos last summer when we spent a week opening all the crates in which the work has been stored to select the pieces for the show.         

                                                                                                                                                                                          Some of the late Elena Karina Canavier's finest porcelain sculptures from the dream-studio she was building with her husband William Scott on a mountaintop south of Langlois are moved to to the COOS ART MUSEUM, where they will be on display from Friday, December 9th through February 11th, 2017. Elena, whom many people thought of as the "ART ANGEL" of Bandon, sponsored over 50 art shows in our town, four a year at the Bandon Hospital, and one or sometimes two a year on the Bandon Boardwalk. Her arts foundation, AVK. Arts, also underwrote shows at the Bandon Library, the Sprague Theatre in Bandon, and the Glass Art Show at the Coos Art Museum. I had the great privilege to curate those shows, so I am thrilled that we will now be able to show the community what a great artist she was in her own right.
This photo is from a catalog of a show at the Everson Museum in Syracuse, NY in 1979 while Elena was serving as arts advisor to Vice-president
Mondale. She also headed up the Crafts Division of the National Endowment for the Arts.
