The latest Spotlight Show from Newport’s Yaquina Art Association features the artwork of John Bradley and Luella Hartwell.
Bradley, who began his art career after retiring from the dental profession, is a master watercolorist with very well-developed techniques for depicting nature’s beauty. Now aged 98, he is a member of Yaquina Art Association and continues to teach classes as well as producing beautiful art. He lives in Waldport with a lovely ocean view has inspired many wonderful seascapes.
Hartwell, who has lived in Seal Rock for the past 22 years, has a passion for capturing the beauty of a wave, a flower, the many colors of tide pools, the peacefulness of forest roads and more. She uses pastel, acrylic, ink and watercolor to depict and preserve the beauty she encounters and enjoys.
The show, which is free and open to all, will run through Friday, July 19, available to view from 11 am to 5 pm daily at the Yaquina Art Association Gallery, 789 NW Beach Drive.
