Elaine Treadwell

Sequoia Gallery's July exhibit includes works by Elaine in the form of

 paper-based and found art sculptures. Elaine's Vessel Series combines objects from her collection of found natural objects with layered sculpture techniques to give form to the feeling of her initial inspiration. Weathered objects she finds on the beach carry their own gestures into found art sculptures created to hang in either indoor or outdoor locations.                                                           


The path to Elaine's current work began with art training in traditional sculpture techniques as well as drawing, watercolor and mixed media.  Her next creative passion was to pursue an architecture degree and career, which led her into the field of museum exhibit work. While working in California in the early 1990s, she opened her own studio, TurtleArts, in Marin County, CA to pursue her own artistic interests. A dozen years ago, Elaine relocated to the Pacific NW where she has moved into new artistic directions. Her 3D works are often in the forms of vessels and nests that express her appreciation for the natural world and the act of giving.

Linda Jerome

An event in daily life, captured for a moment, which would not

appear to be extraordinary and yet is significant to the participant. This is the subject matter of Linda Jerome's oil paintings for July. Though the subject matter is a key element of the work, she also strives to use expressive mark making to add to the story-telling quality of each painting. In her painting, Linda loves to capture some quality of the joy and beauty that life offers.


Linda has been painting since the early 1990's, when she began her formal art training in PCC classes. She went on to PSU and graduated with a BA in Studio Art, where her emphasis was figure drawing and painting. Linda has continued to study the human form - and feels this will always be her favorite subject for study and expression.

Christy Perrine 
Pathways, Christy Perrine

Christy will be presenting new pastel works for her 2014 July featured show at Sequoia.  The mood achieved in Christy's work is greatly influenced by her choice of pastel surface. Many of these pieces were created on suede board which lends itself to capturing delicate subtleties that evoke a dream. In this show, she focuses on achieving the sense of escape through abandonment to the peace of nature. Christy portrays those moments from this past year when nothing but that sense existed and she was all too thrilled to embrace the solitary. 


Christy has been trained in art by her passion, her surroundings and her generous fellow artists. She has always found her home and God through escape into nature. She cannot remember a time before her love of both nature and creating began, they have always coexisted.  Her formal education is in psychology and social work and she currently juggles a variety of hats while working as a studio artist at Sequoia, a crisis therapist, an art teacher and a post grad student.  Christy's work can be seen at Sequoia as well as other select galleries in the Pacific Northwest.  


Artists throughout the area are invited to participate in a open, non-
