A Forest Grove gallery is hosting local artists this month.

Valley Art Association is featuring the oil paintings of Linda Jerome of Hillsboro and Royce Kugler of Aloha during March and April. by: COURTESY PHOTO - Linda Jerome considers painting a life-long learning pursuit and continues to take classes to learn more about drawing and painting the body.

Janet Buskirk of Portland is also showing her pottery as part of the exhibit.

The artists will be at a reception 2 to 4 p.m. this Saturday, March 8, at 2022 Main St. in Forest Grove. by: COURTESY PHOTO - Traveling through Europe and Mexico inspired Janet Buskirk to put careful consideration into everything she makes after seeing how little people can feel satisfied with.

Jerome has been painting for more than 20 years. A substitute teacher, she gardens, cooks, paints and reads in her spare time.

The paintings she’ll show at Valley Art focus on children in motion, lost in play or the physical activity in which they’re involved. Jerome uses uneven textures and faded edges to ensure her images are not static.

Kugler also paints in oils. She started painting in the 1970s right after she moved to Oregon from southern California. Kugler loves the smell and feel of oil paints, and shares her passion by teaching classes through Hillsboro Parks & Recreation, Portland Community College and soon Valley Art.

Kugler enjoys painting and researching what she loves — the outdoors. The works she’ll display in March and April stem from her travels throughout the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, as well as Yellowstone National Park.
