A Framer’s Touch of Forest Grove, OR invites the public to view an autumn art exhibit featuring the paintings of local artist Gayle Pedemonte.
Gayle has lived in Gaston for almost 40 years. She and her husband transformed their 2-acre land into the mature garden it is today. While tempted to major in art as a student, Gayle instead chose to become an RN at Tuality. Her commute took her through many of Washington County’s back roads. Gayle would stop to take photos, and at the same time began to play with oil paints, using those photos as inspiration. Then, she began to paint her garden.
Gayle describes her style as “impressionistic, but not afraid to experiment and change.” She has spent the last year re-visiting the basics that she missed while living life. A studio resident of Sequoia Gallery in Hillsboro for some time, she has recently moved back to a home studio. If the weather is good, she gardens. In the winter, she paints. “All part of the same process,” she declares.
Gayle’s solo exhibit opens at A Framer’s Touch on September 1 and runs until October 17. Her artist reception will be held on Wednesday, September 2 from 5-8pm.
