A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
You might think the new mural on the side of the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce looks as though it is complete, as I did Monday. But not quite, the artist says.
It was just before 5 p.m. on Labor Day, and Eileen Hinckle was hard at work on her mural in downtown Albany. I passed by on my bike and stopped to take a look.
The two-story wall across Washington Street from the Albany Carousel is no longer going to be drab or blank.
A week ago I found myself in the back parking lot of the Habitat for Humanity Restore off Santiam Road, and I glanced again at the folk art on the outside of the Albany Skatepark.
With the general election mercifully over, let’s meet Eileen Hinckle, the Corvallis artist, as she continues working on her mural on Second Avenue in Albany.
For the past few days I had been been hoping to catch up with the artist who created a new mural on Second Avenue in Albany. And late on Tuesday I did.
When I reported on the remarkable new mural at the Albany Skatepark on June 1, I could not find a clue to who had painted it. Thanks to a reader’s suggestion I now have information on that point.
