November Show at Tumalo Art Co. features Helen Brown
November 1, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
“Pixels to Pigments”, Helen Brown’s November show at Tumalo Art Co. features watercolors illustrating how one artist interprets the vision of another artist—a photographer. The show opens during Bend’s First Friday Gallery Walk, November 1, from 4-8pm.
Asking her collectors, friends and family to submit their favorite photos to her to serve as reference for her watercolors, she received over 150 photos from 55 of them. Says Brown, “I was overwhelmed, but excited to choose and get started painting!” Unlike commission work, the photographers are not obligated to purchase the work, just to come and observe her interpretations. “I thought it would be fun to involve other people in the process,” she explained.
She will show up to 15 watercolors depicting landscape, animals, figures and still life. In one painting, she combined two photos into the same scene. “I’m not sure all the photographers will even recognize their photo in my paintings, as I like to change the color scheme and composition to suit my eye.”
Tumalo Art Co. is an artist-run gallery in the heart of the Old Mill District open 7 days a week. 541-385-9144. tumaloartco.com.
