August First Friday Art Walk

Spring on the Trail By Melissa Gannon
During the month of August Aurora Gallery will be showcasing the work of two gallery artists: Melissa Gannon and Gregory Gorham. Both artists work with acrylic paint to create colorful Northwest nature scenes.

Melissa Gannon is an artist and teacher whose love of color is the driving force behind her work. Inspired by a deep appreciation of the natural world and a passion for plein air painting, she seeks to bring nature's bounty indoors for all to enjoy.

Gregory Gorham moved to the Pacific Northwest in the mid 90’s and was instantly struck by the natural beauty of this area. He is inspired by the brilliant colors that nature provides in the trees, the ocean, and the sky. In these paintings you will find the deep ultramarines, lush greens and the golden hues of the Northwest.

The opening will be on First Friday Art Walk, August 2, 2019 from 5-9pm, at Aurora Gallery. Enjoy the company of these two artists and see beautifully painted Northwest scenes.

Frame of the Month

During WWII the Japanese flag was carried by every drafted Japanese soldier. Before marching off to war, the flag was signed by friends and family of the soldier with well wishes and hope for a safe return home. 

However, American soldiers began capturing these flags as symbol of victory during WWII, like the picture shown below.
This month we framed a WWII Japanese flag for one of our customers. The flag was hand sewn to silk fabric that was mounted onto foam core. An opening was cut at the bottom to show a picture of the customers relative holding the flag. The piece was finished with Museum glass and a classic black frame.
