Mary Burgess works in watercolor, acrylic, and paper media. She lives in Lake Oswego and taught art at David Douglas High School for 15 years. She is a member of Lake Area Artists and the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Mary participated in the Spring Guest Boutique at the gallery where she offered hand painted Ukrainian eggs, artist's journals & handmade cards, plus wonderful watercolor paintings.
If you're a fan of watercolors, you could find yourself spending a lot of time at the gallery enjoying Mary's work.
Virginia Parks lives in Tigard, is an archaeologist by day, and loves to paint with encaustics (beeswax, pigment, and Damar Resin). She was drawn to encaustics by its antiquity. Beeswax was originally used by shipbuilders to waterproof ships in ancient Greece. Today it has experienced a resurgence as an exciting art medium. Virginia says she embraces encaustic painting for both its unpredictability and its adaptability.
She is a member of the International Encaustic Artists of Oregon and exhibited at Art On Broadway in several of our Guest Shows.
Since I don't have a photo of Wendy at present, I'm introducing her through an image of one of her necklaces. Wendy says her pieces are crafted through a process of spontaneity and chance - an internal process of exploring possibilities based on choice of materials. "Every finished piece is a visual story of texture, color and form."
Wendy is the fourth jewelry designer to become a part of Art On Broadway gallery.
A warm welcome to Mary, Virginia, and Wendy
