GALLERY NEWS & UPDATES: MARCH • 2017
Rock the Boat
Storytelling Event Friday, March 31, 6 pm
An evening of storytelling returns to Rowboat Gallery March 31th at 6:00 pm, featuring members of the community telling short (under 10 minutes), true stories. The theme for the evening will be “It Wasn't My Idea,” and storytellers will include several new voices, as well as returnees from past events. Everyone is invited to this free, informal gathering, although stories are uncensored and may not be appropriate for children.
Handwoven Art Quilts
Known for her Northwest-inspired custom jackets, coats and scarves, Karen Gelbard has recently fabricated two striking wall pieces that are currently on display at Rowboat. We also have a number of her richly colored and textured pillows.
Vogland / Welti
Mixed Media & Sculpture
Judy Vogland and Rebecca Welti concluded a successful show which is still attracting strong interest. The artists have agreed to leave several pieces each at the gallery through at least the end of September.
Check back here soon for an updated listing of our inventory by these two artists.
We have had a wonderful response to the the work of Portland artists Angelita Surmon, who we began representing several months ago.
She has brought us several new acrylic paintings on canvas, including
Weaving Nets (above, 30 x 40 inches). We are also showing two of her uniquely beautiful kiln-formed glass panels.
More information about Angelita and her work is available at her website.
Painting En Plein Air
Painting in oils, Portland artist Jonathan Luczycki works on location to capture the immediacy of natural light in the atmosphere and upon the landscape.
Luczycki’s art combines a remarkable dedication to traditional oil techniques, with a contemporary, intuitive appreciation of Oregon’s coastal beauty.
We are currently showing two of his larger canvases featuring views of Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock, as well as a number of other smaller panels painted during numerous trips to the South Tillamook County area.
Recently returned from an extended stay in Oaxaca, Mexico, Barb Campbell and Javier Cervantes brought in a beautiful selection of functional tableware and sculptural vessels.
