I first ventured to Gallery by the Bay, which was featuring the eclectic work of Robin Jenkins. Robin is masterful in several media (oil, acrylic, watercolor, collage) with works ranging in size from 3″ x 5″ to several feet across. One theme that identifies her collection is a sunny, metallic quality that bounced joy and light around, much like Robin.
I ended the crawl around Coos Bay at the Select Art Gallery where I met Tony Adams. Tony’s meticulous oils were realistic depictions of wildlife and Native American portraits. The Snoddys, who own and operate Select Art Gallery and Easy Lane Frames, are excellent hosts providing treats, a raffle, introductions, information and good conversation. They feature art in a wide range of prices, sizes and media.
