Matthew Bohn Fine Art

Masquerade

Fine Pencil Art and Graphic Design by Local Artist Matthew Bohn. This show will be displayed through August. As Matthew took private drawing lessons and his love for pencil art flourished. After about a year, he started to develop the skills that were taught to him and incorporated them into his own drawing style. It has been Matthew’s goal to affect the world of art by picking a variety of subjects (ranging from nature to people, from renaissance to pop culture), each will hopefully catch someone’s attention and cause them to stop and think about God, who created it first. http://www.matthewbohnart.com/index.html Enoteca will also be sampling local artisan, Mocha Mudd-Chocolate Java Sauce and Tasting Fabulous EdenVale wine!

“Landscape Paintings” by Ina Prosser “Having been raised on the Oregon Coast as a child, I’ve been painting its many beautiful landmarks off and on for many years. The last few years I’ve been drawn to painting scenes from my past. I see a beauty and softness in the remains of old buildings, wharves, boats, and aging forests. Who among us doesn’t love the ocean, rocks, and sandy beaches. These are the things that inspire me. Enjoy!” Music by Douglas Ross on the Dulcimer.
