January 10, 2018

Hoffman Center Offers Botanical Drawing

Botanical

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer five Botanical Drawing classes throughout 2018, starting Saturday February 10. The first workshop will be Botanical Sketchbook, followed by spring, summer, fall and winter sessions.

Led by Dorota Haber-Lehigh, the series of workshops will focus on drawing from nature while being inspired by changing seasons.  The workshops can be taken independently or as a series. Each workshop will have a different seasonal focus while emphasizing sketching from observation. Students will experiment with new techniques, study botanical accuracy and the learn the importance of self-expression. The series is designed for students 18 and up, and all skill levels are welcome.

The first workshop will focus on keeping a botanical sketchbook. In this workshop, students will engage in creative, meditative, and structured exercises to dive into this practice. In this foundation class, students will learn sketching, measuring, tonal/shading, application, color blending and layering, and composition ideas. Using pen, graphite and color pencils for sketching and combining and adding text will give students the tools to embrace their personal style and use a sketchbook to record their botanical journey. By the end of the first class, students will complete several entries in their sketchbooks and will walk away with ideas on how to continue throughout the year.

Tuition is $45 per session, or $150.00 for all five sessions. ($30/per session).

Classes will be held February 10, from 1:00 to 4:00pm; and April 28, August 25, October 20, and December 1, from Noon to 4:00pm.

Haber-Lehigh’s art and teaching explore the ephemeral beauty of nature, magic of native plants and human connection with plants. She holds degrees in Art, Indigenous Studies, Spanish and Education. She authored two ethnobotanical coloring books. Her workshops are engaging, inclusive and fun. They are designed for all levels and abilities. She is currently working on a Diploma in Botanical Illustration through the Society of Botanical Artists in London.

McVarish gallery will host “America is Beautiful” @ McVarish Gallery
Sep 8 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

This month McVarish gallery will host “America is Beautiful

a provocative series of paintings and installation by Astoria artist, Morrison Pierce.  The 30 piece show looks back at World War II to illustrate the tragedy of war, drawing imagery  from photos of real people and children who lived and died in effects of the biggest and bloodiest conflict in history.

McVarish gallery

Morrison painted this series of scenes in his unique expressionist style, playing ironically with candy colors associated with childhood and innocence, while capturing the sadness and devastation of war. Within the show is a story of two brothers for whom a sad fate is determined when one is sent to war. Works starting on the left entrance area of the gallery represent innocence and childhood under the foreshadow of the imminent war leading into the main exhibit room where the imagery became far more devastating as the conflict rages. He juxtaposes innocence and the presence of evil in a thought provoking way. Its a theme he’s been returning to in various mediums over 20 years. While it’s a reflection on the past it’s also meant to reflect the potential for history to repeat itself in our present political climate.

In Morrison’s words, “‘America is Beautiful’ is a return to the past events in history that can remind us of how far we have come as a society,

or how quickly we could find ourselves right back where we started. It’s a sad reminder of where we have been and how families can be ripped apart just for the color of skin… Love defeats hate and these paintings, although dark in content, seem to show there is light at the end of the tunnel”

   McVarish gallery

It’s certainly not an easy subject, but a noble one to undertake. “How to uncover evil with a mirror for all to see is never an easy task, but one worth the time, if anything is going to change.”

Morrison has been painting and traveling for over twenty years and it shows in his fluidity of ideas and execution. Originally a film major, the cinematic element is still very present in his work and presentation. It can be seen in the way his show is designed to tell a story, even bringing back certain characters in more than on piece. Another unusual characteristic is the linear order of the show.  The story begins on the left side of the gallery and then walks the viewer through the scenes. The final  piece  attempts to show light through darkness, bringing not a happy ending, but maybe an optimistic one. Then adding more drama to the spectacle, the show will also include an installation fraught with morbid symbolism.

 His decision to come to Astoria in 2017 was based on a coin flip. Having traveled to most other cities in the US, this was one he had not seen yet. This will be his first show in Astoria, which he now calls home. “I like the tight knit community of working artists, musicians and free thinkers… and the moody rainy winters.” He brings interesting and vibrant addition to the wealth of art here and has more theatric shows planned at McVarish Gallery in the coming years.

“America is Beautiful” opens with a reception from 5:00- 8:30pm Sat. September 8th and runs until November 11th at McVarish Gallery 160 Tenth Street.  mcvarishgallery.com

Hoffman Center Offers Sketchbook Journaling
Mar 19 @ 10:00 am – Mar 20 @ 4:00 pm


The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita Sketchbook Journaling, a two-day workshop Saturday and Sunday, May 18-19, led by local artists Melissa Young and Barbara Temple-Ayres.

Journaling is a gift you give yourself. Time spent reflecting where you are, right here, right now. This workshop will offer tools to help you incorporate creative expression into your life.

Art journals are a great place to experiment and play with yourself! Even if you think you cannot draw, you will find you can create beautiful pages. Melissa and Barbara will demonstrate and guide you through numerous techniques to help free your creative energies and spill them into your journal. Some entries will be messy and spontaneous and others more precise, with an emphasis on creative lettering.

You will work with pens and pencils, inks, watercolors, spray stains, and incorporate some collage, stencil and stamp techniques into your pages. Your journal experience is uniquely yours, based on your perspective and experiences, and can be filled with snips of the most ordinary things or the most unexpected.


Melissa Young’s career has been spent in family medicine. But she says:
“I’ve always used creative outlets to help keep me grounded.”

She has dabbled in ceramics, jewelry making, spinning & weaving, quilting, and acrylic and watercolor painting. Over the past few years, she enjoys sketchbook journaling for both everyday and traveling. She finds it a useful tool for spring-boarding other larger artworks from ideas developed on the pages of her journals.

Barbara Temple-Ayres has a degree in Art and German Literature, and a MAT in Art. Barbara says:
“Art knocked me over in college and I’ve been smitten ever since.”

Temple-Ayres began her career as a production potter. She helped found Fire Mt. School in Falcon Cove where she taught elementary kids over a span of 25 years. She started a summer art camp through the Cannon Beach Arts Association, which is in its 17th year. Temple-Ayres is a well-known artist, and host in the Hoffman Clay Studio and Gallery.

Hoffman Center Offers Watercolor Class

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer Shaping Your Watercolors: Composition, Color & Concepts for Beginners May 4-5, 2019.

Tuition: $100

Materials Fee: $6.00

Come explore the world of watercolor! This class will present basic concepts dealing with creating compositions, color and color mixing, and painting techniques aimed at the beginning watercolor student. This class will give students everything they need to get started in watercolor.

Her work investigates beauty, shape and color. In doing so, she hopes to discover the interplay between the ordinary and extraordinary.

Gates currently teaches watercolor at Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon, and teaches watercolor workshops at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita, Oregon.

She enjoys teaching and is inspired by the work her students do. Her focus is teaching basic concepts, while encouraging each student to find their own voice.

          Gates says, “After every class and workshop, I want to go back to my studio and paint with the freedom and joy I see in my student’s work.”

Gates studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, California, and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. She studied watercolor with Carol Carter, Satoko Motouji, and Judy Morris. She is currently a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon.

This workshop is open to adults and children 8 years and older. Bring your family, friends or neighbors for this four-hour workshop. Kids aged 8 to 13 must be accompanied by an adult. (Accompanying adults must register as well.)

Origami, the art of paper folding invented by the Japanese in the 8th century, is today practiced by people of all ages around the globe.

Thomas will guide and demonstrate folding techniques that will encourage participants to learn and master models. More challenging models will also be demonstrated.

Thomas’s commitment, as an artist and a teacher, is to inspire students to discover their inner artist and to facilitate self-expression. She believes in giving people the artistic tools and language they need to understand and explore art at their own pace and in their own way. Thomas says:

“There is no right or wrong way to create art in my class.”

Origami paper and instructions for making models will be provided to students and are included in the materials fee.

PLEIN AIR WATERCOLOR CLASS @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
May 13 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Hoffman Center Offers PLEIN AIR WATERCOLOR CLASS

Hoffman Center

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer Watercolor in the Garden: Painting Plein Air led by Oregon artist Carolyn Gates. This two-day workshop is July 13-14 from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day. Tuition is $100.

If you love gardens and watercolor painting, this is the class for you! You will spend two days in the lovely Hoffman Center garden learning about composition, interpreting what you see, and the unique experience of painting outside. Some watercolor experience is preferred, as there will be no emphasis on explaining materials or beginning techniques.

Carolyn has been working in watercolor for the past fifteen years, and the qualities that characterize her work are strong color and compositions that explore the relationships of shapes to make pleasing visual patterns. This results in an abstraction of the subject. Her work investigates beauty, shape and color. In doing so, she hopes to discover the interplay between the ordinary and the extraordinary.

She currently teaches watercolor at Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon, and teaches watercolor workshops at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita, Oregon.

Hoffman Center

She enjoys teaching and is inspired by the work her students do. Her focus is teaching basic concepts, while encouraging each student to find their own voice. “After every class and workshop, I want to go back to my studio and paint with the freedom and joy I see in my student’s work.”

Carolyn Studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, California, and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. She has studied watercolor with Carol Carter, Satoko Motouji, and Judy Morris. She is currently a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon.

Beaded Painting

Mixed Media Beaded Butterfly Workshop: Painting with Reflection

Beaded Painting

This is a one-day workshop led by Portland artist, Beth Yazhari, the workshop will focus on creating one-of-a-kind painted backgrounds and on embellishing butterflies with hand-sewn beads. A simple technique employing acrylic paint and saran wrap will be used to create richly textured backdrops on canvases, which will be built up using layers of complementary colors and allowed to dry. Fabric butterflies will be collaged onto the canvases. Beads will be sewn on by hand with the canvases functioning as embroidery hoops.

Participants will be provided with a variety of beads, butterflies cut from different patterned fabrics, and a variety of vintage textiles to create their collages. While all materials are provided, Yazhari encourages participants to bring their own family heirloom textiles or jewelry to incorporate into their pieces. Yazhari says:

“It is a great opportunity to incorporate personally meaningful
artifacts into an original piece of art!”

Yazhari, who holds a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, and BA in English Literature from Northwestern University turns to a range of influences, from the abstract work of Mark Tobey and Miriam Schapiro to vintage beadwork and traditional textile techniques for inspiration. The themes of her work revolve around elevating the status of women, honoring and purposefully bringing together design motifs of diverse cultures, and creating harmony and beauty out of bits and pieces.

She is often drawn to the motif of butterflies, which not only lend themselves to ornamental and balanced compositions, but symbolize change, hope and the soul in many spiritual traditions. Examples of her intricate beaded paintings, many of which incorporate antique hand-embroidered fabrics from around the globe.

Jul 3 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Paul/Swink Exhibit

Paul/Swink- Hoffman Center Gallery will feature the work of painter Laura Ross Paul and ceramicist Sarah Swink. The show will run July 3rd through July 30th and can be seen during Gallery open hours, 12 pm to 5 pm, Wednesday through Sundays (closed on July 4th). The opening reception is July 6th from 3 pm to 5 pm. Artists will offer a talk about their art at 4 pm. The Hoffman Gallery is free and open to the public.

Laura Ross-Paul is a Portland based artist and teacher. She has been painting professionally for over four decades and has been represented by nine different galleries on the West Coast from Seattle to Laguna Beach. She has exhibited her work throughout the Pacific Northwest.

In 2003 a life threatening illness greatly impacted Laura’s life path. Approaching a diagnosis of multiple focus breast cancer with the goal of saving her breast, (what a life-long figure painter/teacher would want), Laura volunteered to be the first US woman to be treated with Cryoablation, or freezing. The successful outcome of this treatment has led Laura, and her husband Alex, to found Cryoablation for Breast Cancer Advocates

Sales from Laura Ross Paul’s art at the Hoffman Gallery will benefit the not-for-profit Cryoablation for Breast Cancer Advocates.

Laura will give a one-hour talk following the Artist Reception on July 6 from 5-6 pm. The art talk is also free and open to the public. Laura will speak about her art as well as the not-for-profit to whom she is donating all of her sales commissions from this show.

Sara Swink is a West Linn ceramic artist who creates distinctive pieces based on collages and other brainstorming techniques. She teaches workshops on learning to express creativity, and practices what she teaches every day in her studio.

Sara has been creating in clay since she was about 8. Her next door neighbor was a potter “and she planted this seed in me and my sister – something about clay would be a great thing for you and I absorbed it, because I didn’t get that kind of thing at home.”

Sara now resides in Portland where she has established Clay Circle Studio. She teaches and is featured in shows and exhibitions around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Aside from being featured in the July show at Hoffman Gallery, Sara will teach a two-day Creative Process workshop, July 18 and 19. In the workshop, Swink will introduce an approachable methodology that she relies on in her own work for exploring artistic vocabulary and cultivating personal style. Beginning with guided exercises in collage, doodling and clay, some discussion of the creative process and common obstacles, the workshop culminates in an image journal, clay sketches and ways to keep moving forward.

Hoffman Center for the Arts is located at 594 Laneda Avenue in Manzanita. To learn more about current and upcoming programs visit hoffmanarts.org.

PLEIN AIR WATERCOLOR CLASS @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Jul 13 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Hoffman Center Offers PLEIN AIR WATERCOLOR CLASS

Hoffman Center

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer Watercolor in the Garden: Painting Plein Air led by Oregon artist Carolyn Gates. This two-day workshop is July 13-14 from 10:00am to 4:00pm each day. Tuition is $100.

If you love gardens and watercolor painting, this is the class for you! You will spend two days in the lovely Hoffman Center garden learning about composition, interpreting what you see, and the unique experience of painting outside. Some watercolor experience is preferred, as there will be no emphasis on explaining materials or beginning techniques.

Carolyn has been working in watercolor for the past fifteen years, and the qualities that characterize her work are strong color and compositions that explore the relationships of shapes to make pleasing visual patterns. This results in an abstraction of the subject. Her work investigates beauty, shape and color. In doing so, she hopes to discover the interplay between the ordinary and the extraordinary.

She currently teaches watercolor at Maude Kerns Art Center in Eugene, Oregon, and teaches watercolor workshops at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita, Oregon.

Hoffman Center

She enjoys teaching and is inspired by the work her students do. Her focus is teaching basic concepts, while encouraging each student to find their own voice. “After every class and workshop, I want to go back to my studio and paint with the freedom and joy I see in my student’s work.”

Carolyn Studied studio art at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, California, and watercolor painting at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. She has studied watercolor with Carol Carter, Satoko Motouji, and Judy Morris. She is currently a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. For more information and to view her work, go to her website at www.cmgates.com

Paul/Swink Exhibit

Paul/Swink- Hoffman Center Gallery will feature the work of painter Laura Ross Paul and ceramicist Sarah Swink. The show will run July 3rd through July 30th and can be seen during Gallery open hours, 12 pm to 5 pm, Wednesday through Sundays (closed on July 4th). The opening reception is July 6th from 3 pm to 5 pm. Artists will offer a talk about their art at 4 pm. The Hoffman Gallery is free and open to the public.

Laura Ross-Paul is a Portland based artist and teacher. She has been painting professionally for over four decades and has been represented by nine different galleries on the West Coast from Seattle to Laguna Beach. She has exhibited her work throughout the Pacific Northwest.

In 2003 a life threatening illness greatly impacted Laura’s life path. Approaching a diagnosis of multiple focus breast cancer with the goal of saving her breast, (what a life-long figure painter/teacher would want), Laura volunteered to be the first US woman to be treated with Cryoablation, or freezing. The successful outcome of this treatment has led Laura, and her husband Alex, to found Cryoablation for Breast Cancer Advocates

Sales from Laura Ross Paul’s art at the Hoffman Gallery will benefit the not-for-profit Cryoablation for Breast Cancer Advocates.

Laura will give a one-hour talk following the Artist Reception on July 6 from 5-6 pm. The art talk is also free and open to the public. Laura will speak about her art as well as the not-for-profit to whom she is donating all of her sales commissions from this show.

Sara Swink is a West Linn ceramic artist who creates distinctive pieces based on collages and other brainstorming techniques. She teaches workshops on learning to express creativity, and practices what she teaches every day in her studio.

Sara has been creating in clay since she was about 8. Her next door neighbor was a potter “and she planted this seed in me and my sister – something about clay would be a great thing for you and I absorbed it, because I didn’t get that kind of thing at home.”

Sara now resides in Portland where she has established Clay Circle Studio. She teaches and is featured in shows and exhibitions around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Aside from being featured in the July show at Hoffman Gallery, Sara will teach a two-day Creative Process workshop, July 18 and 19. In the workshop, Swink will introduce an approachable methodology that she relies on in her own work for exploring artistic vocabulary and cultivating personal style.

In 2003 a life threatening illness greatly impacted Laura’s life path. Approaching a diagnosis of multiple focus breast cancer with the goal of saving her breast, (what a life-long figure painter/teacher would want), Laura volunteered to be the first US woman to be treated with Cryoablation, or freezing. The successful outcome of this treatment has led Laura, and her husband Alex, to found Cryoablation for Breast Cancer Advocates

Sales from Laura Ross Paul’s art at the Hoffman Gallery will benefit the not-for-profit Cryoablation for Breast Cancer Advocates.

Laura will give a one-hour talk following the Artist Reception on July 6 from 5-6 pm. The art talk is also free and open to the public. Laura will speak about her art as well as the not-for-profit to whom she is donating all of her sales commissions from this show.

Sara Swink is a West Linn ceramic artist who creates distinctive pieces based on collages and other brainstorming techniques. She teaches workshops on learning to express creativity, and practices what she teaches every day in her studio.

Sara has been creating in clay since she was about 8. Her next door neighbor was a potter “and she planted this seed in me and my sister – something about clay would be a great thing for you and I absorbed it, because I didn’t get that kind of thing at home.”

Sara now resides in Portland where she has established Clay Circle Studio. She teaches and is featured in shows and exhibitions around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

Aside from being featured in the July show at Hoffman Gallery, Sara will teach a two-day Creative Process workshop, July 18 and 19. In the workshop, Swink will introduce an approachable methodology that she relies on in her own work for exploring artistic vocabulary and cultivating personal style. Beginning with guided exercises in collage, doodling and clay, some discussion of the creative process and common obstacles, the workshop culminates in an image journal, clay sketches and ways to keep moving forward.

Hoffman Center for the Arts is located at 594 Laneda Avenue in Manzanita. To learn more about current and upcoming programs visit hoffmanarts.org.

Hoffman Center Offers Iris Folding Card Workshop @ The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita
Oct 12 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will offer The Iris Fold, a paper workshop led by Patti Isaacs Saturday, October 12, from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Tuition is $70 plus a materials fee of $25.

Learn the beautiful art of iris folding, a paper crafting technique of folding strips of colored paper to form a design. The center of the design is reminiscent of the iris of an eye or a camera lens. Participants will take home 2 to 4 completed cards along with the knowledge and tips to create their own masterpieces.

Early artisans crafted designs using patterned papers, such as origami, wrapping, tissue, or scrapbook papers. Pages from magazines, maps, and books can be used. Many examples of iris fold patterns with fabric, lace and ribbon are readily found through a casual internet search.

Patti Isaacs has been creating Iris Fold cards and framed wall art for more than ten years. Her demonstrations at the Japanese Gardens ‘Paper Garden Show’ were highly anticipated and heavily attended.

Patti’s art training began at an early age. She received extensive training in high school and went on to study at Indiana University Bloomington. She has spent the past ten years developing her style and medium of expression. Patti is a silk painter and paper artist. Much of the paper Patti works with is Washi paper that she brought back from her travels in Japan.

Patti has exhibited in such venues as Beaver Tales touring show in a joint effort between artists and the Wetland Conservancy, The Big 500 at Pioneer Place mall, Washington County Open Studio Tour, Fire on the Water ‘The Dragon Boat Show at the Portland 5 Center, Four-Eights show at the Sherwood Center for the Arts, Celebration of Creativity art at the Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, and The Paper Garden Show at the Portland Gardens. Patti’s most recent exhibit is at the Guistina Gallery ‘Ode to Tides’ at the LaSells Stewart Center at Oregon State University (May 2-29, 2019). She has been a guest artist at Art on Broadway Gallery and a solo show at Art in the Loft in Seaside.

Patti co-juried the Sherwood Student Show 2016-2018. She is a member of SPIN—Silk Painter’s International and is on the Washington County Open Studio board.
