November 2 – December 1, 2018: Tommer Gonser
Tues. through Sat., 11 – 5:00
Tommer Gonser: Oil Paintings
421 NE Cedar Street, Camas, WA

Tommer Gonser’s oil paintings on canvas with their bold palettes and dynamic patterns are reminiscent of the early modernist abstractionists. The uniqueness and mystery of his art is in large part the essence of his abstractions. He is influenced by his daily life and carries over on to the canvas his recent or more distant past. “Today I am painting yesterday. Tomorrow I will be painting today.” 

Tommer’s bold, intriguing and imaginative abstract oil and acrylic paintings on canvas are painted with a warmth that reflects a subtle strength enhanced by his use of color. His applications of bits of collage and texture in his content add to the uniqueness of his work. Another Tommer philosophy: “The whole process of painting is what inspires me, not what I will be painting, but the act of painting itself”. His work has been collected locally, nationally and internationally, and recently two of his paintings were purchased by The Allison Resort in Newberg, Oregon.

Jean Schwalbe: Acrylic Paintings
421 NE Cedar Street, Camas, WA

Jean Schwalbe started painting in 1969.  Taking classes from George Hamilton and Charles Movey, her medium of choice at the time was watercolor.  Over the years Jean fell in love with acrylic paints and never went back to watercolor.  Schwlabe’s landscape paintings of rivers, mountains, canyons, forests and fields show her love of nature.  Jean’s landscape paintings capture the beauty of nature in colors that we don’t normally see and yet  they are brilliantly accurate and stunning.

In this exhibit Jean has captured not only nature but also brilliant abstract and abstract landscape paintings which are a new and exciting departure for her.

Come during our First Friday Opening Reception and meet Jean, enjoy a glass of wine, and see these gorgeous paintings in person.

 

May 3rd- June 1st, 2019: C.W. Potzz
Tues. through Sat., 11 – 5:00
C.W. Potzz: Acrylic Paintings
421 NE Cedar Street, Camas, WA

Bold, vibrant and spontaneous, the paintings of CW Potzz will bring extraordinary life and wit into any space.

Born in Bozeman, Montana, from the onset Potzz was a combination of diverse cultures – the child of a Norwegian mother and a Native American father. Raised and educated in Guam, Potzz obtained a BA in Nursing from the University of Guam, and practiced Public Health and Emergency Nursing. Eventually craving artistic expression, she earned her BA in Arts with Honors at Marylhurst College in Portland, Oregon.

A prolific painter, Potzz has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, South America, New Zealand and Australia, often staying for a period of time to live and painting, absorbing the fragrance and influences of a myriad of exotic experiences She lived in Yelapa Mexico for several years, and her work from that period reflects the heat and passion of the Mexican culture and way of life.

Pottz describes her work as expressionist, insightful and constantly evolving. She enjoys every aspect of painting – the visualization, the physical activity of painting , and the texture and life of the paint itself. She feels each piece she completes contains a tiny piece of herself – sometimes an unexpected, unrealized perspective. Her pieces range from figurative and abstract to narrative fantasy – rich in color, depth and personality.
