It’s a double-blog week this week. As well as celebrating our upcoming collaborative exhibition with Cannon Beach Arts Association, we’re also continuing to shine the spotlight on the some more of the artists who display their works here at RSG.
In this blog, we’re focusing on five more artists, showing both their fantastic diversity and talent. Each of these pieces is part of the Spring Show and many of them are currently available in the gallery to rent or purchase. To see these pieces and others created by our artists, visit the Artists page on our website.
Karen’s work has been displayed all across the USA; her striking expressionist acrylic works showing the influence of her years of working as a graphic designer. As she explains “My work explores personal and political narratives through enigmatic imagery that can be at once both playful and satirical. Evidence of my long career in graphic design is apparent by my artful use of typography, grid lines and patterns.”
A self-taught artist who first displayed his works in 1959, Ralph Davis has shown his works all across the world and is an established member of RSG, with a number of his ‘Worlds’ series on display in the gallery. Ralph’s work covers a rich variety of topics, including natural forms, planets and his contemplative, dream-like landscapes, such as Cannon Beach Study II below.
Max is a wood turner and artist and is part of the Pacific Northwest Woodturning Guild. His works in wood and acrylic demonstrate his deep understanding of the mediums that he is working with, together with a rich creative imagination. He has created a number of pieces from Portland Art Museum’s chestnut tree, which had to be cut down in 2017. The story of which you can see in this video on RSG’s Facebook page.
