6 PM- 8 PM
Events at Rectangle Gallery
Covid has put a damper on our events this year, but they will be back and better than ever.
When we are able, we will gather together (well-masked and practicing social distancing) to celebrate the Gallery artists and our guest artists on First Fridays and taking part in downtown and community events.
Until that time we will be open until 6:30 pm every First Friday, open late for special downtown shopping events and for classes and art experiences.

I am a self-taught artist and have been painting for more than 30 years. I grew up in logging camps and this environment constantly exposed me to nature. This kindled my interest in landscapes, animals, florals and still life. I began by drawing on anything I could find and when finances allowed, I moved on to cheap watercolors and then finally to oil, acrylics and gouache.
One of my biggest influences in art came in the 80s when I was introduced to the teachings of Betty Edwards with the book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain”. The book taught me how to look at subjects for a different perspective and enabled me to improve my drawing and painting abilities.
My styles are realism and impressionism. I paint mainly in oils and paint subjects that interest and excite me and subjects that the viewer can relate to, whether it be a landscape, floral arrangement, still life or portrait.
