Two downtown Hillsboro galleries offer new exhibits for the month of June, with artist receptions from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 4.

The Sequoia Gallery, 136 S.E. Third Ave., features art created by students and teachers who have recently participated in Sequoia classes.

Sequoia offers a wide variety of classes year-round for all skill levels. Topics include mixed media, oils, watercolor, mosaic, glass, illustration, acrylic, photography, photoshop, life drawing and design.

Students and instructors frequently meet at local restaurants before class, allowing artists to socialize outside the studio.

Upcoming classes are already forming. Summer classes include mosaic by Lynn Adamo, a weekend Plein Air Painting workshop with Eric Jacobson, and an oil painting class with Royce Kugler. Craig Srebnik is planning an oil life painting workshop in the fall. For information or registration, check Sequoia’s website at, where new classes are frequently added.

At Summa Real Estate, 231 E. Main St., a bouquet of springtime flora will bloom from Catherine Bede’s collection of still-life watercolors opening June 4.

Following her studies at Pacific University and Pacific Northwest College of Art, Bede became involved in local arts groups. In addition to visual art, Bede plays guitar and sings during Open Mic nights in Hillsboro hotspots such as Influence Music Hall.

At the June 4 opening reception for Bede’s solo show, national recording artist Andy Harrison, whose debut album features three songs that reached top spots on national radio charts, will perform at the event. Wine and “an opulent array of snacks” will also be available for attendees.
