September's Show features the work of Debbie Loyd and other TEAA member artists.
The public is invited to the Opening Reception of the Trail's End Art Association September Show on Saturday, September 3, from 2 pm to 5 pm, held in conjunction with the Gearhart ArtWalk. TEAA is located at 656 A Street in Gearhart.
Meet the artists, including award-winning featured artist, Debbie Loyd. Refreshments will be served.
Debbie Loyd is a native Oregonian who has lived on the North Coast for 20 years. She works only in the challenging medium of watercolor and has painted for over 16 years. Initially, she traded piano lessons for watercolor lessons and then continued teaching herself through books and videos. She also attended workshops such as the one on portrait painting presented by nationally recognized watercolor artist, Ted Nuttall.
Portraits based on photos she has taken are among her preferred subjects. "I love the process of looking back and forth from the photo to the painting to figure out what makes that person look like them. I like to understand people at a deep level, " she says.
Debbie also enjoys painting flowers and scenes inspired by photos taken during a recent trip to Africa.
As a member of Trail's End Art Association, the Watercolor Society of Oregon, and Palette Puddlers, Loyd has exhibited for a number of years and has won numerous awards locally, including Best in Show at the annual judged competition held in July at Trail'e End. Debbie also won national recognition for her watercolor, Cosmos, at the Emerald Art Center Spring Exhibition in Springfield, Oregon.
Debbie is also a teacher who assists other aspiring watercolor artists. "I enjoy seeing the excitement of someone learning how to express him or herself through painting." She advises students "Be willing to make mistakes and to paint something more than once." And she recommends painting a lot and using the best materials.
Summer Gallery Hours: 11am-5pm Thurs.-Sun.
