Astoria artist Darren Orange shows his interpretation of the Peter Iredale wreck. “I use what is at my disposal and seek out new adaptations of materials to solve problems in which traditional materials cannot provide like a child playing on the floor with all his toys together,” he said. Orange’s exhibit will include paintings and photo based aluminum prints. (Courtesy photo)

Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA), the Regional Arts Council for the coast of Oregon, welcomes Clatsop County visual artist Darren Orange to the Coastal Oregon Visual Artist Showcase and Video Archive at the Newport Visual Arts Center Jan. 4 through Jan. 26.

Orange’s exhibit will open Jan. 4 along with a video of his process. An opening reception is set from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4, at the Newport Visual Arts Center.

His exhibit, “AnteSeedent” will include paintings and photo based aluminum prints. Orange is “addressing the issue of natural beauty in the wake of human influence. The human struggle to control the environment has left nature scarred; however it perseveres…These two distinct bodies of work… show a romantic beauty of nostalgia through discarded object despite the contradiction of the potential ugliness of the subject. Photography is often the start and reference point.”
