Elaine Tan Joins Art On Broadway

We are so pleased to announce that Elaine Tan, Jewelry Artist and Designer, will join our gallery starting in April. Elaine specializes in earring and necklace design that is sophisticated and timeless. In addition to Art On Broadway, she is an exhibiting artist with Local 14, Celebration of Creativity, and Lunaria Gallery in Silverton, OR.

Not only does Elaine bring her artistic aestetics to the gallery, but she comes with lots of energy and ideas. She suggested we conduct regular Trunk Show events; so beginning in April, the gallery will open during special hours for a weekend-only show. Elaine will start us off on Saturday, April 21 from 5 to 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 22 from 11 to 4 p.m. She will be available to talk about the unique features of each piece in her collection and help each guest select the perfect necklace or pair of earrings to fit her style and personality. Mother's Day is May 13, and a piece of jewelry designed by Elaine Tan would make a perfect gift.

To Be Featured In April - "Tasting Pleasure," Paintings by Bruce Ulrich

Bruce Ulrich's featured show, "Tasting Pleasure," will reveal two distinct ways he expresses his passion for the subject.

"My inspiration is an enjoyment and love of food and wine with all the thoughts, memories and pleasures you feel while enjoying a meal with friends," explains Ulrich. "I explore how to express these feelings in paint - either with a painting that is object-based or one that is more about expressing colors and the essence of the moment."

The gallery will host a free reception in Bruce's honor on Saturday, April 7, between 6 and 9 p.m. Enjoy the pleasure of complimentary wine and refreshments as you enjoy Bruce's latest artwork! The show will run through April 28.

"Oregon Originals" Guest Show

Allen Greene's "West Rim Crater Lake" watercolor is one of 26 entries selected for our guest exhibit this month at Art On Broadway. An open call asked artists to submit work that had a connection to the state of Oregon and 31 artists responded with works in fiber, glass, clay, encaustic, oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor. The show continues through April 28, when one artist will receive a $50 gift certificate to Blick Arts based on People's Choice voting. We hope you will come see the show and vote for your favorite entry.
