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."

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."

With quiet light, misty mornings and a sense of peace, JM Brodrick's paintings evoke a sense of calm and beauty.  From forestscpaes to the wild mustangs of Bend, Oregon she mixes both contemporary and classic painting techniques in her moody and atmospheric acrylics.

She states: “I’ve enjoyed painting the beautiful areas of Oregon, which include several forestscapes, a cityscape and the countryside.  I love the misty light of an old growth forest; a quiet refuge in a busy world.  If you sit long enough you can usually spot a black tailed deer or just listen to the distant echo of a woodpecker.  I hope these new paintings evoke a sense of the beauty of these wild places.”

Inspired by the artist’s love of and appreciation for the Pacific Northwest’s natural splendor, many of Richard Smith’s paintings depict actual scenes found on his trail walks. Alongside his daughter, who is his favorite hiking partner, Richard has hiked many mountain paths, and discovered many eye-catching scenes which he shares with you through his oil paintings. He says, “I hope each painting somehow expresses my appreciation for the beauty I find around me."

Starting on January 17th, Cole Gallery's walls will be adorned with the awe-inspiring landscapes of Jeff White. Jeff's love of the Great Outdoors, and particularly the area of the Columbia Gorge, shines through in his epic, atmospheric oil paintings. Lofty, sunlit clouds towering over majestic peaks, with the river carving it's way through the steep valleys - these grand themes are what we love and admire in Jeff's work.

Join us for Art Walk on Thursday January 17th, 5-8pm, and view these incredible works of art for yourself. We'll be serving sparkling wine and dessert bites, and look forward to seeing you.

Thomas McCafferty’s oil paintings leave most of us speechless. And when we recover, we might use words like energetic, dynamic, textural, unique, innovative, physical, powerful, emotional… and the list goes on. You really must see these in person to fully appreciate the power they hold. Just the sheer size of some of these pieces – up to 68” x 68” -  will deliver an awe-inspiring punch. Then you factor in Thomas’ bold hues and fantastic brushwork… well, you come and see for yourself!

Join us for Art Walk between 5:00 and 8:00pm on Thursday, January 17th, meet this amazing artist, and be speechless with us. We’ll be serving sparkling wine and small dessert bites for when you recover your senses.

This month we are honored to bring a stunning collection of landscapes by Gary O'Gara.  Gary was nationally acclaimed from the late 1900's through the early 2000's for his moody, ethereal oils which evoke and sense of peace and hope in the midst of the storm. Reminiscent of both modern, abstracted landscapes as well as the style of artists such as Frederick Church, O'Gara brought a sensitivity and mystical feeling to his landscapes. We hope you will enjoy these beautifully unique paintings as much as we do!

We are thrilled to present a wonderful new artist from Idaho, Maia Leisz!  We discovered Maia at the Edmonds Arts Festival and thanks to one of our collectors who asked us to contact her, we made the connection and are delighted with Maia's colorful European and Northwest inspired landscapes. Her lively paintings bring a contemporary flair to classical subjects from Tuscany and Provence where she studied painting in Aix-en-Provence. Living in Idaho, Maia is surrounded by mountains, forests and rivers, giving her an abundance of opportunities to paint the beauty of the West.

From now through December 16 we're offering 10% off all art and 15% off all art to our repeat collectors!
