GALLERY NEWS & UPDATES: AUGUST • 2018
Land & Sea
Ending Sept 9th
The staff and guests at Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa have loved this show, but it has to end soon. Rowboat will continue to have work from these two talented young artists: Shannon Carlson, who creates dream-like encaustic landscapes (above), and Jonathan Luczycki, an oil painter who is re-invigorating the classic American plein-aire discipline (below).
The show will continue through Sept 9th. More about the artists here…
Still Life / Landscapes
We are very pleased to begin offering a selection of beautiful small oil paintings from Katia Kyte, an emerging young artist working out of Lincoln City.
Katia pursued her love in art from an early age while growing up in her native Russia, developing a solid foundation in art history, classical composition, color theory and oil painting technique. An interest in languages also led to a degree from Irkutsk State Linguistic University, which she earned before moving to the US in 2008.
Katia paints from life, attempting to capture the immediate tactile qualities of both the subjects she is observing, and the paint itself as it is applied with a controlled spontaneity. We are currently displaying a several of Katia's seascapes, as well as a number of her vibrant floral still lives–small but powerful images resonating with the energy of a new Spring.
Acrylic on Panel
Chi Meredith's wonderfully detailed, multi-layered paintings are at once abstract and highly ordered, with imagery informed by her background in both the Arts and Sciences.
Chi earned a BA degree in Physics from Lawrence University, a MS in Materials Sciences from Stanford, and a BFA in Printmaking and Painting from Oregon State. Her work has been exhibited throughout the Northwest in numerous juried events and gallery shows since the mid 1980s.
