Salvest's work has gotten lots of attention from reviewers of the exhibition. 

Salvest's work in the SOTA is "Forever," constructed with romance novels. His talk starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Great Hall. 

James Lavadour, an Oregon artist also exhibiting in "State of the Art," will give a talk in the contemporary art gallery at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8. Lavadour is a self-taught artist who works on as many as 100 paintings at a time in his exploration of the properties of paint and landscape.
