He also had a 4 page article about his work in plein air published in Art in Plein Air magazine this year. The extension of the brush symbolizes an invitation for all of us to feel the artist and the beauty within and to express it freely.

"Sunset Shore" by Jeffrey Hull

“Sunset Shore” by Jeffrey Hull

I started this watercolor several months ago as a demonstration for the Spring Unveiling Arts Festival. While I don’t teach or offer workshops for artists I do answer questions and reveal techniques and secrets readily when I’m in my gallery. A frequently asked question is how do you get the appearance of sparkle in your watercolors? In this case I used Holbein Gold mixed in with other pigment because when applied very thinly it communicates “salty air” so appropriate for a painting of the setting sun along the pacific coast.
This painting sat partially completed in my studio where I would see if often as I waited for the right moment to finish it. Probably the most common question artists are asked is how long did it take you to paint that? In this case it literally took months.
Quiet peaceful sunsets always inspire me but capturing their brilliance and purity is challenging even after 40 years of painting watercolor.

December 21 – January 25, 2015

Artist’s Reception:  Saturday, January 3, 5-7 pm

Fary Tea & Craft Party:  Sunday, January 4, 2-4 pm

The winner of the 2014 Individual Artist Grant, Peter Greaver, will present his year-long project in an exhibition that opens on December 21 with an Artist’s Reception on Saturday, January 3 from 5-7 pm. The exhibit will run until January 25, 2015.

Greaver has spent the last year exploring the hidden world of fairies in a reflection on the mystical aspects of the natural world. Greaver will show a collection of Fairy Houses and mixed media work, two-dimensional work.

“Raised in a family of artists, I have been drawing since I could hold a crayon. Many of my earliest drawings are images of elves and fairies,” Greaver explains about his early inspiration for the project that he has been working on for the last year.

“These fairy houses are inspired by Victorian fairy painting and vintage children’s books, as well as older folklore. I am also inspired by old Chinese spirit houses; miniature houses where the spirit of ancestors were welcomed and remembered,” Greaver writes in his artist statement.

Painter Carl Annala will be exhibiting a series of paintings of the forest as a personal cathedral to accompany Greaver’s work.

“The forest is a cathedral and my heaven lies in the quiet wreckage of the forest. In the forest I see echoes of the modern world; networks, collapse, growth, fruit and homes. I look with a modern painter’s eye to find powerful compositions to photograph in the most chaotic areas of the forest. Being a student of both Lucinda Parker and Christie Wyckoff, I see their marks in me now, I stand one foot in a pile of minute twigs an the other in a heap of thick paint, pushing photography towards abstract expressionism, pushing painting towards neo-post-impressionism,” Carl Annala writes of his latest body of work.

Funds were received from U. S. Bank’s charitable giving grant program for the Columbia Pacific Region to sponsor the Individual Artist Grant show as an Exhibit Underwriter.
