A "Must See" Exhibit - "Bloom" by Sam Hingston

Talk about a "wow" moment. The wooden flower sculptures being featured in March at Art On Broadway Gallery create exactly that kind of visual experience for visitors when they enter the door. Sam Hingston put his imagination, his expert skill, and his gifted sense of design into the creation of ten truly unique and stunning pieces of artwork. It is an exhibit you won't want to miss.

The show opened on March 2 and continues through April 2, with a free Artists Reception on Saturday, March 9, from 5 to 8 p.m. Join us for wine and light refreshments, and learn first hand from Sam how this collection of "blooms" came to be.

March Changes

Sad to see three of our member artists leave our group. It has been such a pleasure to represent the work of Roberta Babcock, Alex Boyden, and Sandy Dutko. We hope their busy schedules will once again allow them time to be part of  Art On Broadway Gallery.

Many of you are familiar with Roberta's work - and some of you own one of her whimsical horses, dogs, cats, and human figures. They have graced our windows and pedestals for years, grabbing the attention of passersby and luring them into the gallery.

Alex's loose and luscious pastel landscapes always invited the viewer to look closer, to see more, and to appreciate the beauty of a simple scene and a quiet moment.

Sandy is the busiest lady I know and her experimental approach to painting results in one success after another. She handles watercolor, acrylic, and collage with such ease.

"Two Worlds"
Our very best wish to these three talented artists.

Welcome Irena Ellis and Diana LoMeiHing

We couldn't be happier to welcome two new painters to our gallery membership. Irena Ellis and Diana LoMeiHing joined us on the first of March and we are honored to have them as members.

Irena Ellis is a resident of West Linn and works in encaustic and cold wax. Two of her paintings that are on exhibit through April are shown below.

"The Path Taken"

Diana was born in China, educated in Italy, and recently moved to Portland with her photographer husband Bill Hornaday. She works primarily in a combination of watercolor and acrylic.

"The Reeds Battle Their Way Out Of The Magic Pond"

We invite you to stop by the gallery and see their work in person.
