“The Americas” 60 x 60 original acrylic on canvas by Oregon artist Mike Bronco. Art is good when it is “unique in conception and well executed”, engaging the viewer. It is “stunningly right” and “commands your gaze and thoughts whenever you look at it”. “The intensity of the experience of the person making it comes through”. It is “honest, unselfconscious, bold, ambitious, enlightening, original, challenging, and a feast for the senses.” “Native Expressions” 40 x 40 acrylic on canvas “Mountain Song” 30 x 30 acrylic on canvas, framed
Almost three years have gone by since the gallery opened its doors and I love it, love being involved in a thriving local art scene! So much good has come about. The most rewarding is working and supporting the fabulous artists that also are wonderful people. The gallery is a great space. There is nothing fancy about it, just a welcoming labyrinth of small intimate rooms filled with really good art. It has become the perfect blend of a working studio combined with a fine art gallery and a museum quality gift shop. One finds a place to visit and talk ‘art”. Inspiration is found on…
It has been said that art is good when it is “unique in conception and well executed”, engaging the viewer. There is something “stunningly right” about the work “that commands your gaze and thoughts whenever you look at it”. “The intensity of the experience of the person making it comes through”. It is “honest, unselfconscious, bold, ambitious, enlightening, original, challenging, and a feast for the senses.” All can be said about Mike Bronco’s paintings.
