Art Elements Gallery

Could it BeBeing a new artist in a gallery brings a new sense of responsibility for me. It feels like my duty to publicize the gallery and the other artists as much as my own work there because I want us all to succeed. The more people who know about the fine work there, the better chance our artwork will wind up going home with just the right person someday.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to meet several of the local artists who are part of the Art Element Gallery family and chat with some of their First Friday Art Walk regulars. Romona Youngquist is the flagship artist there, with many luscious oil paintings. Jay Noller is a Corvallis artist (and neighbor) and his paintings feature earth pigments that fit the Newberg area’s fascination with jory, red hills soil. When Pam Nicols had a show last year they created a short video of her talking about how she incorporates¬†rusted paper…yes, rusted paper, into her encaustics.

Regular artist talks held at the gallery have created engaged customers and many fans. Thanks to Loni and Lauren for bringing me in to such a wonderful space.

Shape and Form at Art Elements Gallery

Shots of my show with Mike Baggetta at Art Elements Gallery, Newberg. Our work is a wonderful pairing of 2D & 3D with both of us employing energetic lines, layers of color and mysterious meanings. Thanks to Loni and Lauren for a super installation of our various pieces.

Small Creamer

Small Creamer

Light Sage/Blue Creamer

This small pitcher with sage blue/green glaze will be happy to sit on your table and pour cream, soy sauce or syrup. It was cut out from one piece of clay and fit together on the back seam. The spiral decoration on both sides serves as the handle grips, meaning there is no pesky handle to try and fit into the dishwasher.

Looks lovely as a small vase for short stem posies, too.
Food safe glaze of course.
5″ tall x 4″ x 3.5″

Purchase from my Etsy Site.

From a Display of Ikebana Arranging

Log-like Vase

This vessel was used at Ceramic Showcase (a few years back) for a demo of a simple Sogetsu Ikebana arrangement. The arranger first used heavenly bamboo and a few branches, then switched to this lilac and greenery. The off-center opening was just meant for this kind display. 18″ long, 7-9″ tall, woodfired. $175

This stoneware sculpture was defiantly done many moons ago and I’m still waiting for the right person to come along who needs to have it. It was created after receiving a string of show rejections and the scratches of porcelain inlay and 23k gold leaf addition say it all. Felt really good to make and it still holds up when I look at her. Think she’s about 24″ tall – $ 999. I dare you to buy her.
Available for purchase.
