About the Artists


Gwen Rosewater, painting:

These paintings are the expression of a few things. First, my attempt to address the persistent longing for my own mid-century childhood, to which memory has given a powerful, haunting allure.  Beyond that, I am always trying to create what is to me an ultra desirable alternative reality; peaceful and rich and still. A world in which the hills look off to eternity itself, and the mysteries of life are at once deepened and resolved. 


Laura Paine Carr, painting:

Thoughts:  “I have never experienced the middle of the road,” silent words awakened me one morning recently.  Rather shocked by the realization that perhaps I have held a (strong) opinion on every subject since birth, I set out to experiment and experience “both sides,” to “understand” at least one aspect of another’s opinion.  
As a painter who writes, a writer who paints, I find the two disciplines demand a deep degree of commitment to self-inquiry, a courageous look into long-held beliefs and, through the relentless creative process, a willingness to step aside with a respectful nod to aesthetics, invention and surprise.

“Never underestimate the power of a marinade,” The Joy of Cooking authors advise. Every painting “Marinates.”  Every poem starts with an idea as well.  Each form immerses, tenderizes and develops its own range of flavor before arriving to the exhibit to hang, or to the podium to speak.  
I grew up on a dairy in Humboldt County, Northern California, graduating from Western Oregon University in Monmouth, Oregon, with a BA in Art, Art Education and English.  I have been painting and writing since birth.
