If you would like to know my thinking about the theme of “lost and found” and how I interpreted it for this exhibit, I thought of myself in two different environments.  Although I have always lived in a variety of urban environments, I often felt that I didn’t really belong there and felt a tremendous relief when I could travel outside the city, take a deep breath of fresh air, and find myself in a rural setting.  Each time that I left the lights, noise, concrete and steel of the city for the calm and natural beauty of the Oregon coast or the farmlands near the coast range, I truly felt that I found myself again. — Barbara Bacon Folawn
