Where Art Lives! Welcome Artists and Lovers of Art!
The Klamath Art Association and Gallery invite you to our June 2023 Exhibit “Drawn Together” Featuring artist Sue Graves, Ralph McKune, Billie Hagerman and Evone Ehenger
The free exhibit begins on Sunday, June 4th and ends on Sunday, June 25th. The exhibit will kick off with an opening reception on June 4th, from noon to 4:00 pm and will be open daily from Noon to 4 pm Thursday through Sunday.
Ralph McKune worked for 45 years for “The man”. He finally had the time to pursue his real life’s dream putting down on paper or canvas some of the wonderful things that he has seen during his travels. He started taking art lessons from some of the great artists around such as Bob Ross, Jerry Yarnell, Brenda Harris Gary, Bob Davies and Kathryn Jenkins. You will see in many of his paintings their influences, but he hopes that as he works on his craft his own style will emerge. Now he’s having a wonderful retirement painting almost every day either in acrylics or watercolors.
Billie Hagerman and her husband have lived in Klamath Falls since 1972 where they raised their family. After retirement they traveled throughout the country, and she has been incorporating those experiences into her artwork ever since. The subjects of her paintings vary between portraits, animals, scenery, and birds. Billie’s education in art has been under the guidance of Susan Liskey, Dorothy Hale, and Pam Stochsler. As an artist she particularly enjoys the challenge of producing portraits that reflect the true image of her subject.
Evonne Huwe-Ehenger has been creating and selling her artwork since high school. She credits God for her talent and inspiration. She especially enjoys depicting God’s creations in the natural world. Evonne has sold her art internationally and throughout the United States. She accepts private commission work.
Sue Graves says her art reflects the wonder of nature through the exploration of design and color. Her desire is to connect in a whimsical or meaningful way with her subjects. Her creations have been displayed at the Lava Lands Visitor Center, Silver Falls State Park, Ashland Mountain Supply, and currently at The Ledge and A Leap of Taste in Klamath Falls.
These four artists have been “Drawn Together” to create a one-of-a-kind art show and sale. It’s open to the public starting with the Opening Reception on June 4th from Noon to 4 pm. We hope that you will attend so you can meet these artists.
The show and sale run all the month of June, Thursday through Sunday Noon to 4 pm at the Klamath Art Gallery 120 Riverside Dr. Klamath Falls.
