Salem, Oregon – Eugene artist Terri Warpinski will exhibit “From Here to There” in the Governor’s Office of the Capitol Building in Salem from June 4 to July 31. Warpinski’s artistic work reflects her longstanding interest in the traces of human activity embedded in landscape. Oregon’s abundance of natural open spaces—whether oceans, rivers, plains (sage or grass), lakes or desert (dunes, scrub lands, or playas)—have been the source of contemplation and inspiration for her photography for more than 30 years.
