Husband and wife painters, Gordon and Kay Baker, will be featured at Sisters Gallery and Frame Gallery Shop for one month, opening on the Fourth Friday in September Art Stroll in Sisters. Oregon and More will feature landscape painting of Central Oregon as well as other areas they have visited.
Kay and Gordon moved to Bend in 1995 after Gordon’s retirement from a major oil company. He is a geologist, environmentalist and artist. Nature is the common denominator and painting brings it all together. “My oil paintings reflect who I am; a summation of a life-time of experiences.”
Kay has a bachelor of arts in advertising and art, and has taken classes from many well-known artists. She works in oil and pastel and is primarily a landscape painter. “I want the viewer of my paintings to sense the emotions I experience when I am painting.”
They are both members of the Oil Painters of America and the Plein Air Painters of Oregon as well as other professional organizations. Their paintings are in collections throughout the United States and Europe.
