Our Artists - Out and About

Electro Yin-Yang Focal Bead - Carli Schultz Kruse
Carli Kruse is teaching a new class at Aquila Glass School in Portland later this month. Her one-of-a-kind glass pendants are favorites for visitors to the gallery. To see how she does it and make one yourself contact Aquila Glass and register for Carli's class  - "Fresh Squeezed - Techniques with a Bead Press - July 27th 10 to 2 p.m."

"Willow Ware Bowl," Oil by Linda Baker

Linda Baker won an Honorable Mention Award at the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts last weekend for her oil painting of "Willow Ware Bowl small." Linda's traditional still life paintings continue to draw attention from visitors to Art On Broadway each month and we love having them as part of our exhibits. Congratulations, Linda!

"Limned in Light, Photography by Don Schwartz

Another of our gallery artists was awarded a Blue Ribbon at the Festival of the Arts this year. Don Schwartz's photograph of "Limned in Light" received one of 25 awards given in the Open Category, where 1280 pieces of artwork were submitted. Don's black and white photo images are represented at AOB year-round.

As a result of her participation in the Indoor and Outdoor Sculpture Show at the Allison Inn and Spa earlier this month, Roberta Baker has been invited to display her bronze and clay sculptures at the Art Elements gallery in Newberg, Oregon. Art lovers now have two locations to see work by Roberta.

The pastel shown above was one of two by Gretha Lindwood to be accepted into the Laguna Plein Air Painters Associations' "Best of Plein Air" exhibit to be held later this summer. In addition, all seven of the paintings Gretha created during the Los Gatos Plein Air show last week sold during the event. Come to Art On Broadway and see for yourself what's so special about Gretha's paintings!

"Collette" by Diana Unterspan

During the month of July, Diana Unterspan's encaustic "Diva" will be shown at the Laguna Beach "Portraits: A Focus On the Face" show; and her fiber book, "Collette" will be exhibited July through mid-September in Atlanta at "The Book as Art: 21st Century Meets Tradition," an event of the AJC-Decatur Book Festival. More great national exposure of Diana's inventive artwork - not to mention local exposure at Art On Broadway gallery in downtown Beaverton. How lucky we are!
