The Friends of the Redmond Library Art Committee, is pleased to present Gillian Burton as the Featured Artist in our Silent Reading Room through January 2013.
Award-winning artist, Gillian Burton, was born in England. Constable County, the Lake District, the marshes of East Anglia and the Southwest of Arthurian Legend were all part of her earliest memories and infused her imagination. Self-taught, Burton’s early work was in fiber arts including weaving, felting, knitting and basket making.
Three years ago, Burton returned to her art, working in acrylic and then watercolors. “Beyond the Edge” features Burton’s loose style watercolor paintings employing dry brush, wet on wet and pouring techniques.
Gillian Burton’s artwork has been displayed throughout Central Oregon. Her paintings have received several awards including the Robert’s Field Redmond Airport Juried Shows where she has received the “Best in Show” award. Burton is a Commissioner on the Redmond Commission for Art in Public Places (RCAPP).
Artwork will be for sale with a 20% contribution going to support the Friends of the Redmond Library, which sponsors the Art Committee and art exhibits at the Library.
The Redmond library is located at 827 SW Deschutes Ave., Redmond, OR 97756. Library hours are Monday – Friday: 10 – 6 PM, Tuesday: 10 – 8 PM and Saturday: 10 – 5 PM.
