Join us as we unveil our new art gallery – featuring "The Greatest Adventure" by Eugene artist, Luke McCready! Bring a friend and immerse yourself in an evening with the artist!

“The Greatest Adventure” is an original art series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20th, 1969. The series is inspired by the historical events of the space race, starting with the breaking of the sound barrier, through Cold War paranoia and competition between the United States and the Soviet Union, and culminating in Neil Armstrong's famous “small step.”

The art series is presented in 3 acts, each with a large central oil painting representing an important engineering achievement, along with drawings depicting important historical figures and events.

The black and white drawings were done with grayscale markers and India ink. They feature a motif of interaction between the subject and the frame that represent breaking through barriers. The color drawings were done with dots of 4 markers approximating the CMYK print process and feature a motif of stars, each specific to the historical figure being depicted.

About the artist: Luke McCready is a graduate of Oregon State University and a graphic designer for Palo Alto Software. He currently resides in Eugene, Oregon. Visit his website: lukemccready.com
