July 2022 Exhibit

Featuring Fran BelCastro Dearborn

Fran BelCastro Dearborn grew up in Klamath Falls and went on to attend Oregon State University where she minored in Art Studies. She owns and operates Gino’s Café & Sports Bar located at 147 E. Main Street, Klamath Falls.

Dearborn’s art can be viewed inside the restaurant when not in art galleries. Her art mostly depicts turn of the 19th century life, nature, and other topics that strikes her fancy; such as Victorian ladies, beautiful flowers, black and white scenes of her Italian heritage, and sepia tone paintings of neighborhood life.

Dearborn mostly works in acrylic paint, colored and charcoal pencil. She has shown her artwork at Clearwater Gallery, Two Rivers Village Arts, Running Y Art Festival and the Klamath Art Gallery.  She continues to run the family business here in Klamath Falls. She is on the cusp of retiring and is hoping to have more time to devote to the creation of art.

The Klamath Art Association Gallery showcases a different artist or photographer nearly every month in a cozy intimate gallery space that is a delight for gallery goers. A few months per year are dedicated to group shows. The gallery not only shows work from local artists and photographers, but also hosts shows by artists from outside the region. Admission is free.

From time to time KAA offers instructional classes that are open to the public, as are all of our events. The non-profit member supported Klamath Art Association averages 140 members. 
KAA is the oldest organization of its kind in Oregon and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1946. The Gallery is open from 12-4 PM Thursdays thru Mondays. During the months of June through September, our membership participates in the community 3rd Thursday Art Walks. 

The Klamath Art Gallery is located on historic Maple Park at 120 Riverside Drive, at the south end of the Link River “birding trail.” Regular gallery hours of operation are Thursdays through Sundays, noon to 4 pm. We are closed the last week of each month (Monday through Saturday) for exhibit change outs.
