Stacey (Zebith) Thalden is the artist exhibiting in the Lakewood Center Foyer Gallery from 12/23/15-2/5/16. Her work skillfully blends art with science. Her interpretation of nature’s wonderments is revealed in her very personal and unique style. This exhibition will take you on a beautiful journey which introduces you to a subject matter that we do not usually equate with fine art: insects!

Each piece exhibited becomes an invitation to the viewer to engage with the artist’s passionate journey. Zebith is inspired by the smallest of details which enlarged become masterpieces of color and shape. “Through my pieces, I wish to share my wonderment of the biological world. I find creative motivation when looking at the soft powdery scales of a butterfly, the mud clogged roots of a flower, or the iridescent sheen illuminating the feathers of a bird.”, exclaims Thalden. “The more I research and observe the more I am astounded and awe-inspired by the visual harmony found in nature.”

This exhibition features work made with acrylic paint and colored pencil. In addition, Zebith will unveil her new series titled, In the landscape. This unique body of work, which emerged during her Artist Residency at Zion National Park in February, combines her environmental ideology with her design background. Each work of art displays a realistic looking 3-dimensional sculptural insect that was created using landscape pattern photography and is surrounded by a painted or mixed media environment.

 Exhibit of Contemporary Realism Painting
October 19 – November 16, 2015

Sautter-ChicadeesTomatoesLadybugs-Acrylic-.jpg

Award-winning artist Beth Sautter is known as a Lake Oswego contemporary realist painter. She can find inspiration in a whimsical composition of a sparrow perched on a stack of donuts or in a captured facial expression. Each individual subject is exquisitely painted. Sautter is known for her amazing technical ability using the glazing method that gives her work the illusion of luminosity and depth.
Sautter earned a BFA in studio art from University of Texas, worked as a graphic designer in LA, moved to Oregon and continues to flourish in the clean air and serene surroundings of Lake Oswego. Beth began her painting career by showing her work in the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts eighteen years ago. She has won several awards at the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts including the Juror’s Choice Award in 2011. Beth’s continued art career has earned her the distinction of being the only painter in Oregon to be featured twice in the Biennial for Contemporary American Realism in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Fort Wayne, Indiana (2008 and 2012).
Her work has been exhibited in the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, Coos Art Museum, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Oswego Lake Gallery, Framed by Design and is included in many private collections. Sautter’s prints are collected across the United States as well as internationally in Australia, England, and Singapore.
Portraiture is her current focus. Beth creates custom acrylic paintings of humans, canine, feline, equine, or imaginary beings. She welcomes commissions, she says, for “She loves to collaborate with clients to create a work of art that serves to tell the story of their lives.”

You may find more of Beth’s work at the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery
