April Show at Tumalo Art Co.—Tracy Leagjeld & Susan Luckey Higdon
April 1 @ 8:00 am - April 30 @ 5:00 pm
Our April show at Tumalo Art Co. features Tracy Leagjeld and Susan Luckey Higdon, two artists who are drawn to many of the same subjects and have a simpatico sensibility about color. First admiring each other’s art and then becoming friends, they eventually partnered as owners of Tumalo Art Co. The idea of doing this show together came to them while camping and sketching in the high Cascades last autumn, surrounded by lakes and meandering creeks.
Tumalo Art Co. is not having an opening reception for the April show, but invites you to see the full show online at tumaloartco.com/april. Videos will help you see the art on the walls, which is a work of art as well.
Tracy primarily spends her time doing monotypes on board, but can also be seen painting small plein air studies all over the Northwest, from coast, to gorge to mountains. Many of these small paintings are later made into larger monotypes. Her distinctive style of creating her marks with printmaking rollers keeps her images loose, energetic and colorful.
Susan paints in acrylic on cradled board in an impressionistic style adding paint and wiping it off, building up layers. Using composition to narrow and refine the view, she focuses on pattern and color making many of her images feel semi-abstracted. “This approach to seeing nature has limitless possibilities,” says Susan.
Tumalo Art Co. is currently closed to the public, but we are available to help you with your art and gift needs. Email email@example.com to make an appointment to see the show by Face Time or zoom. We look forward to seeing you in person in the near future!
