Off the Waffle
I have had two opportunities in 2016 to exhibit art at Off the Waffle in SE Portland. My first show featured a collection of small paintings. Blue hues run throughout my second show which features a collection of seven gallery wrapped giclees.
Springfield City Hall 2016
In August, I had the honor once again to display my paintings on the spacious gallery wall in the Springfield City Hall. I was able to exhibit 30 mostly 2016 paintings, naming the collection "A Brighter Shade of Pale". With music, refreshments and many friends, family and art supporters dropping by for the reception during Springfield's Second Friday Artwalk, it was another fun evening at City Hall.
Harvest Faire 2015
Sisters, Oregon was bustling with artists and art appreciaters for Harvest Faire, October 10th and 11th. I was one of the artists who represented the Sisters Art Association in promoting the arts in the Sisters community at the busy SAA booth on Main Street. Kudos to Sisters for putting on yet another great arts show and creating a fun for all family event.
Springfield Mayor's Show 2014
The Springfield Mayor's Show was so exciting. As I walked into the show, a friend in the know told me where to find the painting I entered in the show. When I found it, I was surprised and delighted to realize I won a cash award for the painting. There were some very nice paintings in the show. Thanks to all the show sponsors. I look forward to entering another painting this year.
Springfield City Hall 2014
I was honored that my paintings were chosen by the Springfield Arts Council members for display in the Springfield City Hall. The name of my show was "Divergence". The wall is approximately 70 feet long and I managed to fill it with a variety of abstract paintings ranging in size from 10"x10" to 4'x5'. So many friends, family and art supporters turned out for the reception on the evening of the Springfield Artwalk, I was quite humbled. There was a party going on in City Hall that night, that's for sure. I really enjoyed the evening and I was thankful for the opportunity to share my art.
New Zone Gallery 2016
In May, I was New Zone's Spotlight Artist for the month. As the collection of paintings I selected for the exhibit ranged widely in size, subject, and painting technique, I named the show "This n That".
Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts 2016
Lake Oswego's wonderful Festival of the Arts was brought to my attention this year by a friend who suggested that I enter paintings in the Open Show. I followed her suggestion, entering seven pieces in the show. Finding an honorable mention ribbon on my painting Whirligig added to the pleasure of attending the artists reception and other festival events.
Jacobs Gallery 2015
My husband and I attended Jacobs Gallery's Original Art Resale Fund-raiser and we provided several Farq Art paintings for sale at the well-attended event. We both enjoyed the festivities as well as seeing the interesting art pieces provided by the many artists participating in the event. It was great to see the community turn out to support the Gallery.
Off the Waffle 2014
I very much enjoyed having my art on display at Off the Waffle. It was a great fit for my abstract art. It is very kind of Off the Waffle to provide local artists a place to display their art. I appreciate not only the efforts of Off the Waffle, but also the many other businesses in Eugene/Springfield that support the arts by providing and encouraging artists to display works at their businesses.
New Zone Gallery 2013
The New Zone Gallery provided my first opportunity to be a Featured Artist. The name of the show was "Cataclysmic Fusion", a name I thought appropriate for displaying a variety of abstract painting techniques. The largest painting I displayed was 4'x5'. I used colored panels to accent paintings and make them pop off the wall. The reception was so much fun. During the evening lots of art lovers and friends wandered through the gallery, stopping to enjoy the paintings.
