Exhibition Details

Waterstone Gallery's July exhibition, A Walk in the Woods, features new work by R. Keaney Rathbun. In his intricately carved linoleum pieces, Rathbun traces his journey as a caregiver, using the landscape of Central Oregon as a metaphor for this difficult but rewarding path. In 2019, Rathbun and his mother spent the month of April near Bend, Oregon. Out of necessity Rathbun, an avid traveler, needed to look closer to home for inspiration. He writes, "The purpose of this self-directed artist retreat was to make a drawing a day of landscapes I am less familiar with, as I have done in Australia, French Polynesia, and Easter Island". While seemingly less exoctic than Rathbun's previous destinations, Bend, Oregon, and his evolving relationship with his mother proved to be a rich source of material for the artist.
