Each month, ART Elements hosts an artist reception for the featured artist(s).Enjoy the stories behind the artwork, interact with the artists, and listen to the "gallery talk" from 5-7pm on Thursday July 28th from 5-7 pm.
ART Elements Gallery will be exhibiting a solo show for the acclaimed landscape oil painter Romona Youngquist.Youngquist, a self taught painter, has a technique and style that is comparable to the Hundson River painters of the mid-19th Century art movement.Her muse is often the pastoral and rural beauty of Oregon's Willamette Valley where you can often find her with her easels and brushes as she plein-air paints a lost barn, farmhouse, or a meandering path.

"You can almost walk into her world. Her canvas is a portal to a place so peaceful and serene, you won't be in a hurry to leave."
"Poppy Lane" | 20x20 in | $2500
Romona resides with her husband, two daughters and her beloved dogs in the lush Red Hills of Dundee, Oregon, overlooking flourishing vineyards and breathtaking landscapes. Much of her inspiration comes from her surroundings-be it a weathered farmhouse, an ancient alder standing alone in resplendent autumn hues, or a muted meadow that pulls one's thoughts to a conscious digression.
Self taught with nature as her classroom and the great masters her teachers, she knew at age four that painting would be her calling. Today you'll find her painting as far away as German, London, and downtown Manhattan. Her works have been published in the premier art magazines including Southwest Art, American Art Collector and Art Talk.
