In Fine Form: Figures by Four

Click here for a Tour of the Gallery
Four Oregon coast artists, wanting the ultimate painting challenge depicting the figure, have used live models from which to design, draw, and paint from life for several years. While they have successfully submitted their work to regional, state, and national shows, the final satisfaction has been getting together to have fun. This exhibition is a collaboration of their works, with fresh, lively brushwork and colors that breathe life into paintings executed in watercolor, acrylic, and oil. Alexandra Eyer – Watercolor,
Lorraine Filippone – Acrylic & Oil, Pat Renner – Watercolor & Acrylic, and J.M. Steele – Oil.
