In the Open Gallery

Our Winter Artist Portfolio Series shows the most recent works by our regular artists. This grouping will be regularly updated to include the most recent additions to the gallery collection throughout the winter of 2020/21.
These paintings and drawings delight in conversations and celebrations. The cakes are inspired by vintage images from Betty Crocker’s New Picture Cookbook from the 60’s given to my mother when she was married. . . . The smaller pastels are about conversations where the objects take the place of people. Larger pieces are a closed circuit of communication, dialogues or soliloquies or larger conversations about more formal elements of a painting.
There are people in these paintings, but they’re not portraits. They’re about communing with nature, sun warming our shoulders, wind ruffling our hair, grass cool and damp under our bare feet.

Featured Artists

Teri Wing

I believe my interest in people started at a very young age, when I was told to sit still and quiet, which was usually at church or a waiting room. I would be handed a pen and old grocery list or envelope from Mums bag, I would draw other people also waiting.
