In the Gallery: Community Art Show

Have you been in lately? Right now there is a wonderful display of a variety of art that depicts the beauty of Oregon as seen through the Mountains, Sea, and Desert.

This show will only be up for another month, so make sure to come and see it while you can!

Gallery Members Meeting

Did you make it to the meeting on June 11th? A nice time was had by all, artists got to meet and mingle, as well as discuss ideas for the future of the BAA.

There will be another member meeting, so don’t distress if you couldn’t make this last one! We will keep you posted on the date!

Coming Soon!

June Featured Artist

Deb Cooley

Art, it’s a living breathing thing that has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. My Grandmother Myrtle Hufford, my mother Shirley Crocker have encouraged, and taught me that art is a state of mind. Meaning that if you just be open and aware art is all around us . It can and will sustain you through difficult times.

I started drawing very young, then my Mom and Grand mother allowed me to watch then paint with them. First acrylics and oils and ,pastels. Some where along the line I got a taste of water colors. They are my go to. They are all about water paint and technique. I love them. But I truly love any medium I can get my hands on. Variety is the spice of life !

I honestly don’t think that I decided to be an artist, it is just an integral part of who I am. To those who aren’t sure if they are artistic, I say grab any medium from tactile to thought provoking and give it a whirl.

Art comes in many forms . Open your heart and mind ….. It’s waiting.
