Marilyn Terry - Del Hearn
Bronze Sculpture - Illustration

We are excited to begin the summer season with two of our area's most esteemed artists. Del Hearn is well known for his meticulous detail on the public art projects: "Doors of Oregon", "Bears on Motorcycles" and "Christmas on Mars". He captures an essence of the area with the honor to have his art on several phone book covers. Del is exhibiting "Local Color", a display of paintings depicting scenes from our area. Del will be at the gallery First Friday from six to eight thirty.

Marilyn Terry's love of animals is obvious when you observe her bronze work. With a life time of observation she nails down the essence of wolves, horses and dogs. For seventeen eventful years Marilyn lived with Kiva the wolf who is the subject of many of her sculptures. Along with her bronze she is showing her pyrography (burning on wood) and will have a few of her wax forms on display. Marilyn will be at the gallery First Friday from six to eight thirty.

Nancy Graham
Recent Watercolor Paintings

Nancy Graham is a 1970 graduate of the University of California, Davis Campus, with a teaching credential in design and English. Unfortunately, her teaching career was brief due to moving about for her husband's career, and soon thereafter she was busy raising twin boys. Her desire for painting in oils and acrylics, which was also encouraged by her artist mother, had to take a backseat in those early years, and it wasn't until 3 years ago that the interest was rekindled, but this time watercolor became her passion.

Today Nancy takes classes with two instructors here in Grants Pass and signs up for every workshop that scheduling will permit. She claims that there isn't enough time in the day to get everything done and still have time to paint as much as she would like, but she tries to do a little each day. Recently, she was elected President of the Josephine County Artists Association and is enthusiastic about being part of the "incredibly talented art community" in this area.

A selection of her recent watercolors will be on display at King Jewelers for First Friday Art Night on June 1st, and will remain through the month.
