July 2022 Exhibit

Featuring Paula Walborn and Tammi Crawford

Walborn is a professional local artist and has been involved in the Klamath art community for many years.

Her work has been displayed in several local and regional galleries and shows and she participated in the Klamath Downtown Association’s project, Birds of the Basin. Walborn’s contributions are the pelicans at Main St. and 7th St. and the Mallard ducks at Klamath Ave. and 5th St. Her work on this project was featured in an issue of Southern Oregon Magazine.  

Walborn works in many different mediums, including acrylics, watercolor, pencil, pen & ink, and pastel. She is also exploring alcohol inks and mixed media sea glass art. Her subject matter is not confined to any specific thing. She loves painting the sea and coastal scenes as well as landscapes and florals. Wildlife and birds also find their way into Walborn’s work. She is currently working on some whimsical sea glass shadow boxes that have been popular with her clients. Walborn enjoys trying new mediums and techniques. She feels it helps her to continue growing as an artist and keeps her work fresh and new. Walborn is also a paper crafter and creates one of a kind greeting cards. They are available at local bookstores, Basin Book Trader and For His Glory Bible Bookstore and Gifts, and at the Art Association Gallery.  Walborn is an active member of the Klamath Art Association and a current board member. She loves promoting art here in the basin and encouraging local artists to participate in our local Art Association, which celebrated its 75th anniversary last year.  

Crawford is a native of Klamath Falls and has worked and raised her family here. In all Crawford’s years growing up and working she never dreamed an artist was lurking inside her. But when she had to take an early retirement because of health issues, she discovered that indeed it was!

Crawford is a self-taught artist and work primarily in acrylic on canvas in an impressionistic style. She loves portraying her land and seascapes in strong colors and design. She was led into art as a means of helping her deal with anxiety disorder and chronic pain. It helps her to focus on something outside herself. She enjoys Impressionism because it allows her to express what she feels and not just what she sees on her canvas. She finds this very therapeutic and recommend art to anyone suffering from these types of health issues.

Crawford has been working on a series of paintings called “Through the Window”. These are landscapes as seen through an open window. They present the viewer with a different point of view and reflect a peaceful feeling. Another favorite subject is the ocean. The majesty and beauty of the sea brings her great joy, and she loves capturing it on canvas.

Crawford is a member of the Klamath Art Association, and she is looking forward to becoming more active in the art community.
