New Artists

The gallery is pleased to introduce our two new artists, Thomas Eldridge and Nancy Cuevas. They will replace departing artists Jim Johnstone and Susan Schenk.

Thomas will join us on October 1 and will exhibit abstract and non-objective paintings. He holds a BFA from Southern Oregon University and studied painting under the late Robert Alston and printmaking under master printer Lyle Matoush. Thomas brings his experience as Director of Stevenson Union Art Gallery at SOU along with him.

Nancy Cuevas will join us in November. She primarily works in oils, but explores pastels, charcoal and printmaking as well. Nancy studied at the Art Center of Pasadena and attended Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design in LA and Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, CA.  In 2004, she connected with Portland painter Alexander Rokoff to pursue her interest in portrait and figure painting. Nancy now teaches oil painting and drawing at her own studio, Cuevas Art Studio, in Hillsboro.
