Art on Broadway Events in April 2017
“Timeless” Featuring Michael Kelly
Time connects everyone to everything: activities, events, work, play — yesterday, today, and tomorrow. The ritual of observing time has undergone change throughout the years, but for artist Michael Kelly the pocket watch remains his preferred means of tracking time. His grandfather wore a pocket watch as did his father, so it is just natural that this convenient and stylish piece of jewelry would be part of Michael’s daily routine and a way to connect with his past. He is also an avid collector of these charming time pieces.
Timeless features a recent set of Michael’s paintings that pay homage to the pocket watch.
This year, the Gallery’s featured member artist shows will be extended from one-month to two-month exhibits, with an artist reception on the the second Saturday of the first month, and an artist presentation on the second Saturday of the second month.
Timeless opens on Wednesday, March 1st and ends Saturday, April 29th, 2017.
And please stop by this month for….

April’s Annual Spring Boutique
Each spring we invite up to 15 guest artists to bring us an inventory of their work to expand on our selection of gift items in the gallery. This April’s boutique will offer jewelry, scarves, photography, greeting cards, functional and decorative ceramics, paper collage and paint-on-glass paintings, and more. It’s a perfect time to purchase graduation, bridal shower, wedding, anniversary, teacher, birthday, and – of course – Mother’s Day gifts in our friendly, relaxing gallery.
Tim Havens, Sine Morse, Barb Sedgwick, Peg Silloway, Carolyn Woody, and Russell Young are back this year with more of their artwork; and Ann Altman, Reiko Archer, Susan Gallacher-Turner, Heather John, Olga Ivkin and Deb Steele will join them as first time boutique artists. All are local and offer gifts created by the hand and imagination of each artist!
The boutique will open on Wednesday, April 5, and continue through April 29. We will host an afternoon reception from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. Light refreshments will be offered.

I’m happy to announce that we will offer demos every Tuesday afternoon in April starting at 2 p.m. There is no charge to attend. However since seating is limited, we suggest you reserve a spot by contacting the gallery. Call 503.601.3300; email firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up on the Contact page of our Website www.artonbroadway.net.
Two of our regular guest artists and two of our new members will present a demonstration in a medium in which they specialize. These demos are meant to be fun and informative.The schedule for April is shown below:
April 4 – Encaustic Monotype with new member Dianne Jean Erickson
Dianne joined Art On Broadway in March 2017 and immediately became involved by creating our quarterly postcard design for April, May and June. She also answered my request for artists to offer a Tuesday afternoon demo. A big thank you to Dianne for her willingness to share this exciting process with everyone.
“What I love about the making of these prints is working with gesture, the love of line and irregular shape, spontaneous and in the moment, evidence of the artists hand in the making of a mark. They come from mind to hand to paper in very little time and without preconceived ideas about what they should be. ” …Dianne Jean Erickson
April 11 – Drawing With Pencil & Charcoal, Guest Artist George Schweser
George has been a regular participant in our guest shows since we first started offering them. He holds a BFA in Painting from Kansas City Art Institute; we are grateful to him for his offer to conduct a demo here at the gallery.
George plans to demonstrate drawing with pencil during the first hour and follow with a hour of drawing demo using charcoal and pastel.
April 18 – Watercolor, Guest Artist Olga Ivkin
Olga, like George, is a regular participant in our Call to Artists open shows. She is also a guest artist this year in our Spring Boutique. Formally trained in fine arts at one of Russia’s most prestigious art universities, Strooganov Moscow State University of Arts and Industry, Olga has graciosly offered to share her training and talent as she demonstrates her watercolor process for us.
April 25 – Felting with new member Patricia Rehm
Patricia also joined us in March 2017 after participating in our 2016 Holiday Boutique. We are very happy to have her as a member and to share her wonderful fiber artwork with the public. Her scarves, purses, bags, and hats have already proven to be popular with our guests.
Patricia has been working with fiber arts since 1975, recently creating and embellishing felt pieces, both functional and whimsical. She uses specially dyed fibers, an ancient felting technique, and hand sculpting, to create one-of-a-kind lightweight, durable, and exquisite pieces of art.
