Our February event will be an elegant affair, with champagne and chocolate in celebration of love and romance and to get you in the mood for Valentine's Day. The artwork this month will include a touch of pink here and a dab of red there and lots of hearts and roses scattered throughout the gallery. We hope you will stop by on Saturday, February 5, between 6 and 9 p.m. to enjoy a visit with all our members and see the exciting pieces they have submitted for this month's exhibit.
Below is an acrylic landscape by Nikki Dilbeck and a watercolor floral by Chris Helton. Also posted is an image of naked raku work by our newest artist, Kris Paul from Lake Oswego. The photos are beautiful, but the originals are amazing!

Enjoy the company of our twelve wonderful artists, complimentary wine, and luscious chocolates. The evening starts at 6 p.m. and continues through 9 p.m. We offer layaway and gift certificates; and of course we accept cards and cash. Remember the date and look for reminders in the weeks to come.
One week into 2011 already. Still having to concentrate when I record the date on a check, but with online banking there aren't too many checks to write these days.
The new show at Amato's - soon to be Art On Broadway Gallery - is installed and ready for visitors. "New Year, New Works" opened on Tuesday and will continue through Saturday, January 29. The artists' reception is this Saturday, January 8, between 6 and 9 p.m. Bossa Duo will entertain us with live music, and we'll have wine and tasty refreshments for visitors to enjoy. Plan to stop by.
Bert Cohen and myself (Donna Sanson) are featured in January, but all twelve member artists have new and exciting work on display.
Bert has created some stunning silver and crystal jewelry that she will introduce, and I'll have paintings of European scenes that focus on shapes and patterns.
You'll be sure to enjoy the beautiful winter snow scenes by Chris Helton, the always delightful metal sculpture work of Joe Pogan, the striking color and freedom of Nikki Dilbeck and Bruce Ulrich's abstract acrylics, the mastery of traditional oil painting by Linda J. Baker, and the delicious glass work by Diane Ahrendt. Beth O'Mahony recently included fiber art along with her raku and stoneware offerings, Joni Mitchell has added stone jewelry along with her stone sculpture, and Gretha Lindwood is working in both pastel and oil these days. Annie Salness' acrylics are still on display with us and we are thrilled to hear that she is back in her studio again. Go Annie!
We're looking forward to an exciting year and invite everyone to become a regular visitor in 2011 to Art On Broadway Gallery. Donna Sanson
