       We are pleased to offer a selection of Landscape paintings by three gallery artists in this abbreviated exhibit.

Kathleen Hooks

Kathleen Hooks resides in Eastern Washington and paints moody, lush and romantic landscapes not only reminiscent of her part of the state, but also of the lush and deserted land found west of the mountains. Hooks' works are impressive landscape paintings and worth a visit to view this exhibition.Kathleen Hooks along with her husband John and 2 children live in the rural farmlands east of Pasco, Washington

Bob Ichter

R.John (Bob) Ichter is an award-winning artist residing in Atlanta Georgia who is quickly captivating the art scene wherever his work is shown. Also known as "Bob" to his friends, Ichter's romantic pastels are richly colored and hand-rubbed onto lushly textured black suede archival board. The strengths of Ichter's pastels include vibrant, saturated colors and strong compositions. According to Ichter, each piece is designed to evoke a certain time of day and to transport the viewer to another place.

Mike Smith

Mike Smith has tried to abandon any "school" of painting and uses an autobiographical approach. His subjects are mostly found in his backyard or around the neighborhood in which he lives. His dogs, the cat, his rowboat, and ducks in his pond, are all included in the bright watercolors and rare oils. Smith says, "People always want to know the meaning of my work and where I get my ideas from.  My work is simply about the people and places and animals I love. Images, unlike the written word, do not dictate to you. After thirty-five years of painting almost every day, it has become my   world." It is fun-filled, colorful, and full of life.
