Reed to Host Rouslin Art Benefit For Salem Chamber OrchestraSalem-News.com
The event happens on the first Wednesday in March.
(SALEM, Ore.) - The Reed Opera House, in concert with the Salem Chamber Orchestra, will launch an exhibit of watercolors by Dr. Sam Rouslin at a wine reception on Wednesday, March 4, in the Reed’s second floor Gallery 205.
“We’re honored to present this extraordinary collection,” said Roger Yost, owner of the Reed and one Oregon’s largest international art galleries at his Alessandro’s restaurant.
“Dr. Rouslin is a skilled colorist and conveys the beauty around us with an impressionist’s eye for detail. I love his work.”
Dr. Rouslin, now 90, is the father of SCO Concert Master Dan Rouslin. His art has been collected from New England to the Pacific Coast, and throughout Europe and the Middle East.
Dr. Rouslin, who came to painting late in life, says much of his inspiration comes from contemporary artists, many of whom studied with Edgar Whitney, a legendary watercolorist and teacher at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

The Rouslin exhibit at the Reed is scheduled to continue through April.
The Reed Opera House will also be displaying California artist Leah Devora’s “Legends of Hollywood” mixed media exhibit in its Courtyard Gallery on the Reed’s Lower Level.
