Vivid Color and Calligraphic Brush Strokes with Elo Wobig 
First Thursday | February 6, 2020 | 6:30 – 8pm | Free


Elo Wobig is landscape painter whose work is characterized by vivid color and calligraphic brush strokes of complex scenes. Most of her paintings originate en plein air from locations across the Pacific NW. Her primary goal is to capture distinct features so that the audience might recognize the time and place. In doing so, she invites the viewer to envision the beauty she finds in ordinary places. In addition to winning numerous local competitions, her work has garnered national recognition the American Impressionist Society Annual Juried Show 2019 held at the prestigious Salmagundi Club, where she was awarded Honorable Mention. She is honored to have her painting displayed in the permanent collection at the Museum of the Oregon Territory.

The Travel Sketchbook: Imaginations on Paper

In this episode of the Art Without Passports Series, we’ll explore the art inspirations of the travel sketchbook. Seizing the moment, the artist/traveler on the go, captures the outdoor scene with subjects in both wet and dry media on paper. Written notes and comments often occupy the sketch page for later reference in creating more final art works in the studio. Be a friend and join us for an evening of The Travel Sketchbook: Imaginations on Paper.
