Scott McRae- Painter

Scott McRae

My name is Scott McRae and the paintings you see around you are my current work. Each piece is designed around two things—the colors I see in the world and the everyday scenes, flowers, and objects that become vessels for the colors I see.
I was born and raised in Longview and have lived here for fifty years. I grow a garden each year so I can see the shapes and colors of the leaves and flowers of various plants.
I studied art as a child here in Longview and really enjoyed those classes. These classes pointed BA in Art from Linfield College. At Linfield I learned to minimalize my art to its bare essentials. After graduating from Linfield, I started to bring more recognizable forms into my art, but still keeping the abstract qualities of minimalizing.
I really believe that the marks, colors, and shapes, and composition I put into the painting from the very beginning all go into the final painting which may be way different that how I started.
I also teach painting and drawing classes here at the Broadway Gallery.

Kandyse Whitney- Glass Artist

Kandyse Whitney

My fascination with glass began in the early 1990s when I took my first stained glass class. Purchasing my first glass kiln on 2009 expanded my art and opened up a wider range of possibilities for my art. Since then, I have been sharing my art in various art shows, festivals and retail locations.

Largely self-taught via books, experimentation and some “happy accidents”, I draw inspiration from looking around at every day objects and the world around me.

Each piece of glass I use is hand selected and purchased from a manufacturer.

Christmas Displays

The gallery is filled with so many unique gift and decorating ideas. Artists have handcrafted ornaments on a large tree at the front of the store. On display, you can gaze at the glittering glass ornaments and other hand made glass pieces. Looking for stocking stuffers, there is something for everyone on your list.
