Eve Golden-Fields Presents: Local Notes

Girl With Lantern 18x24 Oil On Board

I have loved art my entire life and I have been painting with oils for ten years. I am fascinated by light and prefer working from life.  I think that portraiture of live models offers a unique opportunity to react to a continuously changing present.  Of all the places I have traveled and lived, the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon has always resonated most, and I am excited to be back home and currently working out of Talent Studios.  Classical training has helped inform my aesthetic but I am striving for a more direct, alla prima style. I believe that visual beauty has immense meaning in and of itself, and I can only hope to contribute some semblance of that back into the world.

Annual Holiday Salon

Our Annual Salon will include work by all gallery artists on a rotating basis during the holiday season. Featured work includes paintings, encaustics, woodcuts, monoprints, sculpture – mixed media, bronze, wood and ceramic. Carol Ingram is one of the featured painters and her recent work is a departure from the familiar landscapes that collectors have enjoyed in the recent past. Having been an artist all her life, Carol has explored many subjects and her current research takes us into the realm of mythology.
