There is breadth and depth of experience within the group, stylistic differences, and years of determination to continue painting together with studio models. Five unique perspectives and personalities enliven the world of the blank canvas with oils, acrylics and watercolors through direct figure painting. From Gail Simmons, one of the five painters, “ In essence, as we begin to paint, the curtain pulls back, the model sits still, the show begins, and we act with our tools as in a dance or song or dialogue until the model breaks his/her countenance and the session is over. We usually paint from 2-3 hours at a session, inside or outside. Very often we paint to music or paint a musician. The models are very much a part of this experience and we want to honor them as well.” Five Women Painters: Isabel Deaver Poppy Dully Nancy Gillespie Gail Simmons Sue Svoboda Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday 9 am-9:30 pm; Saturday 9am-5pm Cost: Free and open to the public Website: www.MultnomahArtsCenter.org Phone: 503.823-ARTS
