Lake Oswego artist Nancy Tongue is exhibiting her colorful paintings at U.S. Bank, 19060 Willamette Drive in West Linn, through May 30. Bank manager Jennifer Miller invites the public to view the art during regular office hours.

Tongue is known for her Impressionistic oil paintings, which feature water, florals and landscapes. She studied with Royce Kugler, Sharon Engel and Charles Sovek. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, winning Honorable Mention honors in 1996, 1999 and 2002. Her work is shown at the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery, the Freed Gallery in Lincoln City, Lawrence Gallery in Sheridan and at Earthenworks Gallery in La Conner and Port Townsend, Wash.

“I am an optimist and joyously respond to color and the play of light,” Tongue says in describing her art. “Color can sing, bounce or whisper ... I can’t imagine making art without color!”

Tongue’s paintings have been included in the 2013 coffee table book “Lake Oswego: A Great Place to Live.” They were also used on the sets of “Extraordinary Measures,” starring Harrison Ford in 2010, and on the television show “Grimm” in the 2014-15 season.
