The Sentry, by Kay Myer


July at Art du Jour Gallery


Featured Watercolor Artist Kay Myer, and Cammy Davis in Our Salon The Sentry, by Kay Myer Rose BoKay, by Kay Myer Grenache Rose, by Kay Myer

“The gentle flow of beautiful colors fusing together and traveling with generous splashes of water” is Kay Myers’ description of her watercolor style, and she says her “best friends,” her sable brushes, “do most of the work with minimal strokes.” Kay is never at a loss for inspiration and can delight in the smallest things, light on a leaf, sparkle on water, and is passionate about painting nature in her colorful, loose and interpretive style. She has been painting in watercolor since the 1980s and “loves exploring the endless possibilities this medium allows.”

​Kay’s art hangs in collections in Koln, Bachingen and Reinsdorf, Germany; Krems and Vienna, Austria; Ryd, Sweden; Wales, UK, and many states

Rogue Gallery & Art Center exhibit: Tao Duo: Tamae Frame & Annette Gurdjian

The Tao Duo: Tamae Frame and Annette Gurdjian exhibit contrasts two artists who explore deeply personal and spiritual experiences. Working from the base upward, Tamae uses slab-built techniques in constructing her 17 ceramic figurative sculptures. Drawing inspiration from ancient Indian Hindu sculptures, Mesoamerican clay figures, and Japanese Buddhist statues, she seeks to create the subtle impressions of inner life. Annette combines photography with oil painting in the 22 paintings on display. Glimpses of photographic images among the texture of paint create haunting dreamlike images. She works intuitively reflecting on strong influences in her life including her Armenian heritage. Frequently she depicts human conflict and struggles, the beauty and pain of existence.
