Carol Ransom
Watercolors & Oilst

Carol Ransom presents her work in the Glass Forge gallery. Her mediums are watercolors and oil.

"I am so excited to share a body of work which expresses my contentment. I began my art career 12 years ago. My mediums are watercolors and oil. The exhibit captures my passion with natural images of Oregon wild flowers and birds. After growing up in town and graduating from Grants Pass High School, married life, children, and a move to Canada filled my days. Widowed, with children grown, I attended my 35th high school reunion. It was home that lured me back. It was home that brought me a new love, and home that nurtured my passion."

Janice Webb
Watercolors & Oils

Janice Webb will be our guest artist this month. She writes:

“Inspired by nature, I am a painter creating realistic and impressionistic works of art in watercolor and oils, reflecting and expressing the luminous qualities found in vibrant landscapes, colorful flowers, and interesting people. Enriched by travel and living abroad, many of my subjects reflect a sense of place and include personal glimpses into the people and culture of the region. Impassioned by the extraordinary vistas of the Northwest, I seek to capture light as it plays across the texture of my surroundings. Most importantly through my artwork, I wish to express reverence for the gloriousness of our area and hope to inspire others to realize the importance of preserving our land for future generations to enjoy.”
