CORVALLIS, Ore. – “Mountain Memories: Glimpses of Asia,” a collection of acrylic paintings by Newport artist Erin Price, will be on display in the Little Gallery at Oregon State University July 2 through Sept. 21.

The vignettes are inspired by Price’s encounters during her time spent living and traveling through Asia and particularly in the foothills of the Himalayas.

“These are the neighbors and mountains I loved - the mist beneath our feet, generosity of ash-cooked potatoes, exhaustion of mountain treks and nights around the fire... hard row-hoeing, mud huts, goat trails, songs echoing from mountain walls, bustling markets and spicy dishes,” she said in an artist’s statement. “They signify joys and triumphs; hardship and shared celebrations; tears and grit; tenacity and hope. Most of all, they show love.”

The Little Gallery, 210 Kidder Hall on the OSU campus in Corvallis, is open 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
