Art is insightful, posing questions and seeking unexpected answers. Art is a refuge, encouraging reflection or just stillness. Art is diverse, offering perspectives beyond our own. Art is educational, examining our world and our histories. Art is inspirational. Looking at art gets us imagining our own next creative venture. Get engaged. Go visit an art gallery.
Today my husband and I drove to Portland to visit the studios of Kim Murton and Alison O'Donoghue. Lucky us. Alison has been working on a commission for the Salem Hospital where she has been painting a 21' x 6' mural in her living room. Her detailed painting of people, animals and other imagery just took our breath away.
Tonight we are taking our "Face the Public" artists out for dinner and conversation. We will be gathering together,toasting the arts with upbeat feelings of what is on the horizon. This will be a good night.
We represent Northwest artists working in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, works on paper, ceramics, jewelry and mixed media.
Our second gallery features exhibitions on a monthly basis, as well as selected group shows and special exhibitions. To arrange an appointment, please call 503-581-3229 or email; firstname.lastname@example.org
During our years of operating, we have successfully encouraged the broadening and blossoming of the Salem art scene. We are dedicated to serving our clients as well as our artists. The relationships that we cultivate with our clients and our artists have been and will continue to be long and rewarding. We encourage you to take the time to be acquainted with us and take the time to appreciate the art we enjoy so much.
