We are delighted to introduce contemporary oil painter, Jenna von Benedikt!  Born outside of London, England, Jenna gains inspiration from her European roots, places she’s lived, travelled, as well as her current surroundings where she lives in Utah’s Rocky Mountains. Hummingbirds often play the characters in the stories of her paintings. Like our lives often seem to be, they too are fast paced and there is something beautiful in trying to capture their stillness and unique colorful qualities--moments we often take for granted or miss within our own interactions with others. Jenna enjoys translating the idea of creatures--birds particularly-- as ethereal messengers bridging the gap between heaven and Earth. The idea of incorporating patterns and designs with the various subjects found in the days of the Creation story is a way Jenna connects symbolism and personal beliefs with her surroundings, as seen in her #saintedbirds, #saintedbeasts and #saintedbugs series. Her goal is to capture the story and soul of her subjects against an atmosphere that entertains both human and wild beauty.

Susan Diehl and Jennifer Diehl. Mother and Daughter. Oil painters in the Russian Impressionist tradition, capturing light and shadow in beautiful brushstrokes, with dark and light values and rich colors playing together to tell the stories of life. From bucolic vistas to city sidewalk scenes, from intimate backyard settings to rich still lifes, these paintings are meant to enrich our lives as they tell our stories. The wonderful group of paintings in this show promises to inspire us with beauty and give us joy.

Mark's heart is tuned to Nature's song. He dons his backpack and painting supplies, climbs up into the wilderness, and paints the beauty that surrounds him. All so that he can show us what he loves, show us what we may not be able to see with our own eyes, but see it clearly through his eyes. Whether we're along to take in a fiery sunset on a clam-digging excursion, or a beautiful afternoon on an riverside trail, or he lets us listen in on a campfire discussion in the middle of an alpine campsite, we can sense the stillness, the peace and joy Nature brings. We're grateful to Mark for not only his wonderful artistic skill and hard work, but for his gifts to us in his paintings. Keep climbing and painting, Mark. We hear the music with you!

This month we are delighted to spotlight a special new show featuring the faces of the new US - paintings from a refugee center in Chicago where Pam Ingalls visited to paint immigrants and refugees. She painted over 45 portraits, titling the show "Facing the New US - Portraits of Refugees and Immigrants".



Pam described her experience:  "A dear friend of mine teaches English at a refugee center called Heartland Alliance in Chicago. I went to meet and paint the refugees she works with, and to hear a bit about their lives. It was a wonderful experience to meet them - and especially to paint all those beautiful faces. These people gave me hope. As I do with all of my portrait shows, each of the people I've painted will receive a print of their painting, and a percentage of the proceeds if their painting happens to sell. A percentage will also go to Heartland Alliance."

Acclaimed for his painterly and loose Impressionist landscapes, Scott Gellatly explores the intersection of land and water through expressive brushwork and an intense color palette in this brilliant new show.


Scott states: "I'm interested in the patterns, movement, and compositions offered by small wetland areas near my home in Portland. These paintings were done on site, or from small watercolor paintings completed on site. They are as much a celebration of color and brushwork as they are images of the scenes that inspired them." 

May 14, 2019 - June 10, 2019

Known for her intuitive and emotional abstracts, C.A. (Carol) Pierce captures the beauty and mystery of the landscape in her latest offering. From sublime and peaceful, to moody and dark, her paintings evoke a feeling of being surrounded by nature, light and mystery.



Carol states: "I love the feel of atmosphere...The roar of distant thunder, a lightning strike...and what leads up to the weather change. The quiet of a sunrise...The warmth of the sunset...Never to be seen again but always remembered."
