We are pleased to welcome Sandra Roumagoux for her second show at our gallery. Dividing her time between serving as Mayor of Newport and painting the coastal landscape, Roumagoux's new paintings succinctly express her feelings about the eternal beauty of the land alongside her concerns about its continuing degradation. Thinly painted planes of color and bursts of spontaneous drawing with the brush may at first glance appear to be simple creations, but Roumagoux's paintings reward careful viewing and consideration. Roumagoux's work is in the permanent collections of the Portland Art Museum; Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Salem; and Oregon State University, Corvallis; as well as many distinguished private collections. Here is her current artist statement:

"This new series, Coastal Observations, which I completed during the last two years, continues my interest in the human disregard for the natural world.  I want to show a sense of invisible human figures lurking behind the landscapes. Tires scattered throughout the coastal landscape appear to have been sown by a mysterious Johnny Appleseed. The tires reveal that ominous human presence. These sky and ocean paintings done at high tides expose low tide estuaries, where assorted sized tires abound."    -  Sandra Roumagoux
