See Anna Porter's nature works at Cascade Sotheby's display

SUBMITTED PHOTO - Lake Oswego artist Anna Porter is exhibiting her art and photographs at Cascade Sothebys Oct. 20 through Nov. 16. An opening reception will be held today from 4-7 p.m. at the office, located at 310 N. State St. in Lake Oswego.  For her first solo fine art exhibition at Sothebys, Porter will feature her works from nature, particularly floral paintings and photography inspired by her artist gardens in Lake Oswego, landscapes painted or photographed in Portland and plein air paintings from favorite natural areas in the Pacific Northwest. I am happiest when I am painting and photographing outside en plein air and when I am tending my gardens, at one with nature, she writes in her artists statement. It is my hope that my art will transport viewers away from the stresses of their daily lives to a place where they can see and enjoy the beauty that is all around us in the Pacific Northwest. The public is invited to attend todays reception and to view the art during business hours, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This piece is titled Pick Your Poison Foxgloves in Blue.
