Images dreamed up by Port Townsend artist Counsel Langley are on display now in “Eye Contact

‘Eye Contact’ exhibition now open at Peninsula College gallery; artist talk coming in February

PORT ANGELES — Port Townsend artist Counsel Langley has mounted “Eye Contact,” a solo exhibition at the PUB Gallery of Art at Peninsula College, where admission is free to the public.

A nationally known artist, Langley will give a free lecture on her work Thursday, Feb. 25, which is the last day of her PUB Gallery show. Her 50-minute talk is part of the public Studium Generale lecture series, and will start at 12:35 p.m. in the Little Theater adjacent to the gallery. Both are in the J building at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

Right after her presentation, Langley will come out to the PUB Gallery for a public reception at 1:30 p.m.

In the meantime, art lovers are invited to see “Eye Contact” in the PUB Gallery between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

When creating art, “I am influenced by the look of outer space, computer chips, dramatic weather, electric circuits, decay, rock ’n’ roll glamour, plans and diagrams, B-rate sci-fi control panels, urban environments, fluid turbulence, engineering schematics and architectural drawings, and, increasingly, the stunning good looks of the Pacific Northwest,” said Langley.

‘Things that come up’

“In my work, there are things that come up again and again: Lost highways, nebulas, grids, geometric forms, mysterious powerful ladies who appear to be performing strange rites, mountains, animals, the woods, water in all states (solid, liquid, vapor), and cities, often isolated and decaying.”

Langley holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, and has shown her paintings at venues across the region including the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center.
