Show Extended: Two Woman Show at Broderick Gallery


It's been quite a year! Here are a few of the nearly 50 paintings in our show this month at Broderick Gallery. Celeste Bergin and I have a two-woman show. I admire her work greatly. This will be fun and a wonderful opportunity to pick-up an original piece of art at a reasonable price.

ART EXHIBIT NAME:  A Year in Paint (Sweetman and Bergin two woman show)

EXHIBIT DESCRIPTION:

Broderick Gallery announces that Quin Sweetman and Celeste Bergin will have a two-woman show entitled “A Year in Paint” opening at the Broderick Gallery on November 6, 2014.
Both Sweetman and Bergin are Pacific Northwest artists who work mostly from life and direct observation. “A Year in Paint” represents key paintings completed during the past twelve months.  Many of the selected paintings were completed “en plein air” (outdoors, in the manner of the French Impressionists, often in one sitting). Interiors, figures, still life and some studio work will also be included in “A Year in Paint”.
Sweetman and Bergin are acclaimed artists with a breadth of experiences and tributes between them. Quin Sweetman is a noted oil painter whose work has been shown in numerous exhibitions including CW Lofts Minneapolis, Walters Cultural Art Center and the People’s Art Gallery among others. Celeste Bergin’s recent professional achievements include Curator for the Pacific NW Plein Air Competition 2014 and invited artist in Portland Art Museum's Paris in the Park event. She has won many awards and shown work in over 100 exhibitions including the Columbia Art Gallery, the Pittock Mansion, Portland City Hall and numerous galleries.
