Art on Broadway Events in August 2017

 

“Evocative Blues” Continues in August

•Award winning pastel artist Gretha Lindwood’s original landscape paintings will be featured for the months of July and August at Art On Broadway Gallery. Known for her richly colored paintings with strong composition, Lindwood’s innate sense of color and design were honed during her thirty year career as an illustrator and graphic designer.

Southwest Art Magazine just featured Gretha in the August 2017 edition as one of “5 Painters to Know in the Pacific Northwest.”   In the article, Gretha talks about her love of the scenery in the Pacific Northwest and how it has shaped her work.  Read the article HERE

•”What I find important,” says Gretha, “is to allow the viewer to feel a sense of place when they look at my work, that they feel a connection to that particular landscape.” Indeed, by evoking a sense of familiarity in her work, viewers often state they “could step into” a Lindwood painting.

•”I really enjoy painting ‘en plein air’, a French term meaning in the outdoors. All of the information I need to complete a painting is right there in front of me. And what better place to have one’s “office” than in a beautiful location in lovely weather while listening to birdsong and flowing water?” she adds. “I welcome onlookers as I work because it offers me the opportunity to answer their questions and to show them that art is accessible as are most artists.”

Summer Fanfare – Gretha Lindwood

•”Summer Fanfare” was painted en plein air at the Jackson Bottom Wildlife Refuge when the leaves were just beginning to change color and there were still a few wildflowers. This refuge is a wonderful place to see the changes of our seasons.

•”Reeds And Rushes” is a painting I had been wanting to create for a long time. Although I painted this in my studio from my photo reference, I have painted en plein air at the particular wetland many times over the past five years and have had the pleasure of seeing ducks, gulls and deer at this lagoon. This location has also been the inspiration for several of my award winning paintings. 

•In a touch of the ironic, Gretha often uses the dry medium of soft pastels on artist sandpaper to portray the wetness and fluidity of water.

•This is a two month exhibit which opens Wednesday, July 5th and ends Saturday, August 26, 2017. 

Gretha loves to have people watch while she paints, and gives demos regularly at the Gallery.  “I welcome onlookers as I work because it offers me the opportunity to answer their questions and to show them that art is accessible as are most artists.” Come see Gretha paint and hear her talk about her process on Saturday August 12th at 5:00pm. 

•Regular Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm

At the End of the Day

August Guest Wall Exhibition

August brings more art as regional artists show their interpretations of At the End of the Day.   This theme might suggest sunset images, a bedroom interior with muted lighting, wilted flowers, senior citizens, a figure walking away, or even a cat taking a nap. The subject is broad. How would you depict this topic? Come see how our guest artists responded.
