Focus Artist for May 2019 at River Gallery

Chris Chambreau is an artist who has found her passion for landscape painting and has created an exhibit called NWXSW.

Artist Statement:

For me, discovering I had a need to make art was almost like turning around one day and seeing a third arm attached to my side. It was like...”Where did that come from?”

But there it was, as big as life, and I just couldn’t go on without exploring what made the difference. Art making has been a constant companion for the last sixteen years. I like working with my hands and my paintings are tactile in the making. I like to push paint around with a palette knife.

These paintings explore my two worlds...the Oregon I grew up in and the Southwest I now call home.
