Bill Baily is a widely acclaimed artist who has been exhibiting his paintings for over 48 years. His subject matter has varied from impressions of local landscapes and seascapes to his versions of beautiful and lucious fruit and vegetable still life compositions. Recently, Bill has also been painting a series of abstract acrylic paintings. He has exhibited in many watercolor society shows as well as the Artists of Oregon Exhibits at the Portland Art Museum.
Gail Larsen Joseph is an admirer of the Old Masters, her favorite being the 16th and 17th Century Flemish still life painters. She has studied with Fran Kemper, John Waddingham, and Dorothy Fitzgerald as well as California artist, Carolyn Hawley who is renowned across the West. Gail's finely executed oil paintings have a special flair with a whimsical, playful elegance and unique subject matter all her own.
Diane Lewis paints realistic and traditional oil still life paintings on canvas. Living in Eugene, Oregon, she has also painted a series of pastel paintings of the rivers surrounding the area. Painting plein aire oil paintings in the Willamette Valley has been an inspiration for her still life paintings of fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers. Her love of painting and nature are reflected in her use of light and the serene quality of her work.
