Artists’ Gallery has two very talented artists, Mary Wonder and Bill Hamilton, featured during April in the gallery. Each has developed their own unique styles and techniques to celebrate art.
Join them at Second Saturday Art Night on April 11 from 4-6pm.
Mary Wonser: Weaver
Color and texture surround us. Color makes us happy, sad, excited or calm. Color can make us warm or cool. It can also evoke a myriad of other emotions each depending on an individual’s life experience.
Texture gives dimension to a surface. Mary says, “To me, texture in a weaving gives it a third dimension. It may be a feather that flutters when you pass by or a bit of metallic that glitters in the candle light. It gives life to my weaving.”
Mary’s inspirations for her weavings come first through color. “I feel the color. Color talks to me and the designs evolve from that point. Texture evolves from a desire to give the weaving personality and life.”
Artists’ Gallery is proud to present the works of Mary Wonser. From cozy hand loomed shawls to artful wall hangings, table runners and decadent kitchen towels…..the collection will add warmth and color to your life and home.
Bill Hamilton: Painter
William (Bill) Hamilton studied commercial and technical illustration at Oregon Institute of Technology. His first job was as an illustrator and Graphics manager for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Through all of those years he also sold his oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings through galleries in California and Oregon.
Bill paints scenes throughout Oregon, Washington and California. Bill says, “I paint what I know and know where I go!” It could be a raft trip or kayak trip down the Rogue, Deschutes or John Day River. It could be a hike to one of the many lakes in the Cascades and Sierras. It could be the multitude of birds that come in the backyard during the various seasons. According to Bill, “All of God’s creation is worthy of painting”.
Original paintings as well as prints and cards of Bill’s work are available in the Artists’ Gallery.
Mary and Bill along with the 25+ other artists in the gallery invite you to join them for the monthly Second Saturday Art Night on April 11 from 4-6pm. Food and wine and fun!
