Elida Field is definitely not what you’d call an uptight artist.
“I have three kids,” she said. “I’m used to seeing the spaghetti fly through the air and hit a painting. If you can’t just wipe it off, then it’s not something I’m likely to have in my home.”
Field, who lives in Washougal, is taking that free-spirited concept into her latest venture, opening a downtown Camas art gallery.
“I don’t really have a name for it yet,” she said. “I’m usually good at coming up with catchy little titles, but this has been difficult.”
The well-known local artist has taught classes at schools and out of her home for years. However, she wanted a more centralized location.
When Field heard that Workshed Interactive was looking to move to a smaller venue, she thought the space looked promising.
