Dianne Jean Erickson has a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art from Southern Oregon University. She is a founding member of the contemporary art group AMBUS. For a number of years she had a co-op gallery in Jacksonville then Medford. She has received numerous awards for her artwork and has exhibited throughout the West Coast. She resides in Portland. Dianne uses multiple mediums including, but not limited to, encaustic, acrylic, oil and cold wax, and collage. She works by intuition - a process of creating, figuring out what works, what to keep, and what to abandon. Dianne states, “Creating art energizes me, it’s a place where time is altered, where all my feelings and emotions appear at some time or another; pleased, tired, upbeat, excited, harried, surprised, and hopefully at some point, satisfied.”


Barbara Martin has a MBA as a certified creativity coach. Barbara has received numerous awards including a recent professional development grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council of Oregon. She has exhibited throughout the Northwest. She describes her painting method as a “process of painting intuitively with many primordial (and sometimes surreal) connections flowing naturally into her work”. She finds further inspiration in repressed dreams and the natural world. The paintings in this exhibit are part of the ongoing “Super Ply and Friends” series and consist of black and white paintings on bare plywood. As a process painter, she allows each painting to develop organically so the character and context are not preplanned. Barbara has lived on three continents and in twelve states. She now lives in the Portland area.


Dianne Jean Erickson and Barbara Martin will be at the March 15, Third Friday art reception. Barbara Martin will do a demonstration of her unique process of painting.
