SHOW PREVIEW For her latest collection MOODS, Jeane Myers spent January through June in her studio exploring and creating while simultaneously tapping into her state of mind. Working primarily in oils and a similar palette, Myers experimented with multiple tools and mediums on canvas, panel, paper and vellum, creating an entire range of expression. This tactile, texture-rich collection contains a variety of works ranging from small to large, fully encompassing a variety of personal moods. Each new combination of surfaces, tools and textures spurred Myers’ creativity into new and different directions, each work functioning as an individual meditation and a part of the whole.
JEANE MYERS Jeane Myers is an abstract oil painter whose repertoire spans many periods that build upon each other, retaining her distinct and recognizable aesthetic, transcending the divide of humanity and nature. Her works are heavily layered and textured. The tools she uses to scrape back layers are as raw and unique as the emotional effect on the eye. Her creative process is unplanned but the tools and color palettes are ceremoniously the same. Jeane describes her simple color palette as comforting and familiar, however the end effect can leave the viewer with a sense of discomfort as easily as a soothing familiarity.
“AWKWARD IS BEAUTIFUL
BECAUSE IT IS HONEST, IT’S REAL, AND IT’S UNIQUE.”

NOVEMBER 2018 INTRODUCING
UNTITLED (91806) 37â€? X 49â€? / Mixed Media
Carolyn Cole finds her voice within the rich traditions of abstraction and creates a cohesive body of work that translates into a language of intense color, sumptuous textures, and organic compositions. Color plays an important role in describing the emotional value and mood of each work. Her forms are instinctively achieved through the process of applying multiple layers of pigment, and her textured surfaces result from this process. An honors graduate of Portland State University in 1977, her work has been exhibited all over the United States, including the Seattle and Portland
Art Museums. She spent ten years as an artist in New York City, where she exhibited extensively before settling back in the Northwest. Her paintings are included in numerous private and public collections including Vice President Al Gore, Gordon Seigel, president of Crate & Barrel, former Presidential Chief of Staff John Podesta, Disney Productions, Zale Corporation, IBM Corporation, Kaiser Permanente, RNM Properties, Salton, Inc., TRW Corporation, American Express, Campbell Soup and the Heinz Corporation.
JHENNA QUINN LEWIS Oil painter Jhenna Quinn Lewis is drawn to simplicity of color, style, and composition. Her inspiration comes from Japanese masters such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Uta Maro, and Hasegawa Tōhaku. “While in college, I took courses on the Japanese Tea Ceremony and the art of flower arrangement. It is there I discovered the tenets of wabisabi; the adherence to beauty in the imperfect, the impermanent, and in austerity.” Lewis removes all that is unnecessary and exercises restraint and simplicity.
“I INVITE THE VIEWER TO SLOW DOWN. BE
PATIENT AND LOOK. PAY ATTENTION TO ALL THE NECESSARY DETAILS.
I BELIEVE THIS IS WHY MY WORKS IMPART A
MEDITATIVE FEELING.” SPRING COLORS OF THE LESSER FINCH 9” X 12” / Oil
