Current Exhibit

Joanne Porter: Floral and still life watercolors

September 2014

Returning for another year, Joanne Porter's nature-inspired paintings will be on display during the month of September.

"As a floral painter, Joanne Porter prefers to work from fresh flowers rather than from photographs. When she starts a painting, Joanne imagines a slight breeze gently moving the pedals; she then tries to capture that movement in her composition. Using many layers of color, Joanne's intent is to convey the delicate feel of the flowers as well as their richness of color."



Coming Soon

Saline Painters Guild

November-December 2014

The Saline Painters Guild was founded to further the appreciation of fine arts in the community and to give inexperienced artists a chance to collaborate with established artists. Their members will display a wide variety of work including abstracts, landscapes, patterns, still life, and portraits.
