311 Gallery is online! Local Color Gallery is the featured gallery this week. Check it out!

Good afternoon friends of 311 Gallery. This week's "STUDIO OF THE WEEK" is Local Color, Studio 9.
Local Color consists of 9 talented artists displaying a wide range of mediums. Local Color's artists include Adrien Montoya, Rebecca Toy, Lori White, Lizzie Bailey, Mary Ruth Dana, Chantal Tomiello, Margo White, Leigh Ann Night, Susan Peters, Margaret Griffin, and Mary Beth Owen.

Artist: Adrien Montoya
Featured work: El Gallo de Mirna
Acrylic and Collage / 16" x 20" / Price: $275
In her life, Adrien looks for the same qualities as she does in her life - satisfaction is achieved when a work is bold and direct, bursting with energy and full of unexpected colors and curious textures. But most of all, it must be filled with interesting characters and a fair amount of whimsy. Adrien's love of travel has provided her with many cultural springboards for her ideas. To express all of this, she uses a wide variety of medium, such as acrylic, pen and ink, photo transfer, watercolor, encaustic, and collage, often resulting in exciting mixed media explorations.
Adrien can be reached and her work viewed using the Local Color information provided above.

Artist: Lizzie Bailey
Featured Work: Flor Nouveau
Stained Glass / 12" x 20.5" / Price: $295
Lizzie is primarily self-taught in multiple mediums and comes from a family of talented artists. In 1987, Lizzie was introduced and taught the techniques of stained glass by her mother and grandmother. With glass, she strives to bring vision to the possibilities of a more dimensional view. Lizzie tends to work from observation inspired by her travels. She finds an inner peace when creating and combining a vast spectrum of rich colors and endless textures. Lizzie's work, including commissions, can be found in many private and public collections throughout the world.

Artist: Rebecca Toy
Featured work: Gets Me Into Trouble
Mixed Media / 16" x 20" / Price: $150
For Rebecca, creating art is both a compulsion and a therapeutic release. Her purpose in creating art comes from a very personal need to process her life as well as the sheer fun in painting. Rebecca primarily uses acrylics, although she loves to mix it up by using photographs, textiles, and sometimes found objects in her paintings. Rebecca enjoys working on a series of pieces that are often interrelated in subject theme or process. She wants the viewer to enjoy her work for both its inherent visual appeal as well as its underlying meanings.

Artist: Mary Ruth Dana
Featured Work: Swimmer Blue Suit
Watercolor on Board / 9" x 12" / Price: $95
Featured Work: Red Shoe First
Watercolor on Board / 8" x 10" / Price: $75
Mary Ruth graduated with a BFA in 1982, traveled in Europe for a year, then got an engineering degree, got married, and had children...a bit of a delay in her art career. Her college major was drawing but is now drawn to color and intrigued by the purity and translucency of watercolors. Mary Ruth enjoys adding intensity, color, and a different perspective to her figurative work, still life arrangements based on the mundane, and now and again the odd historical building. For her, watercolors are all about the pigment.

Artist: Lori White
Featured work: Cattails #7
Oil / 24" x 12" / $1,200
Featured work: Fisgard Lighthouse
Oil / 12" x 24" / Price: $1,200
Lori White is a contemporary realist painter of landscapes and still life. She is also an active environmentalist, having transitioned from a career as an environmental scientist. Lori is an Exhibiting Member of the Oil Painters of America and a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America. She is an active member of Visual Art Exchange, Durham Art Guild, Pastel Society of North Carolina, and Landscape Artists International. Her work has been published in Painting North Carolina - A Visual Journey, Painting North Carolina – Impressions en Plein Air, and Best of Artists – America. She was recognized in Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine in their Three to Watch feature.
Lori's primary goal of her landscape painting is to bring to the viewer’s awareness the magnificent surroundings we all share and must protect. Lori does do both plein air paintings of the landscapes and larger studio paintings in which she works to recapitulate the sensory qualities she experiences when painting on site.

Artist: Chantal Tomiello
Featured Work: Red Pendant
Oil on Board / 8" x 8" / $75
Chantal was born in Canada in a large French Canadian family. It seems that even as a young child, she always had a talent for drawing. Although her path did not lead Chantal to be a full time artist, she has always yearned to paint. Over the years, while living her traditional life, Chantal carved out time to paint...first with watercolors, then in oils. She is self taught, with the help of many classes, workshops and books.
Chantal currently works with oils because she loves how it feels...this creamy and velvety smooth medium which glistens in the light when wet...Her subject matter varies but the aim is always to try to capture light. When Chantal sees something beautiful, it's the light she first sees and which captures her attention. As Chantal grows as an artist, her wish is to be more impact-full with her statements of light......to emphasize “feeling”.
