Third Friday at BBC is an every month celebration of local art, music and food. Come and join us for another fantastic night!
Art- Jean Schwalbe
"Jean's impressionistic paintings become almost a surprise to the viewer as the colors are not what one would expect to find in a landscape. Jean captures energy by pushing the color palette to rich, warm and vivid hues. Originally a watercolorist who studied under George Hamilton, Jean has been painting acrylics for the past ten years. They give her more "freedom" and using "lots of paint is more fun". And it is certainly more fun for the viewer! Whether painting rushing streams and rivers, familiar Oregon mountains, meadows, clouds or all of the above together, she captures a special intensity and vitality found in nature."
