May's Featured Artist: Linda Gebhart
Artists' Reception in conjunction with Gearhart ArtWalk will be held on Saturday,
May 6, from 2-5pm
The merry month of May brings beauty all around Trail’s End Gallery. We will feature our artist, Linda Gebhart, who opens her exhibition on May 6. A reception will be held in her honor from 2:00pm-5:00pm.
Linda says she “enjoys painting seascapes and visions from her journeys or from nature. I prefer to paint small versions of what I see and watercolor is my choice of media. I oftentimes like to use recycled materials and frames to show off my work. I am at home painting in plein air as well as learning and painting with friends in Open Studio on Wednesdays at the gallery.”
She continues: “As a secondary math teacher, I used some of MCEscher’s tessellations to illustrate mathematics in art. Now, fully retired, I have adopted watercolor as my medium and I love it. I enjoy the challenge of getting the colors right while working from photos I have taken or received from others. I choose to create paintings that are of memorable experiences. To date, my best accomplishment as an artist is to have joined two communities of artists who are welcoming and willing to mentor newer artists.” Her pictures capture the dramatic skies of both sea and land.
Come and meet this charming artist who loves to share her enthusiasm and knowledge while you enjoy refreshments. Plan to include a stop at the Trail's End Art Association Studio and Gallery at 656 A Street in Gearhart and join us on Saturday, May 6, from 2-5pm for the opening of this month's show!
