Photo Credit: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Jean Gale will display her watercolors at Trainers Club during the month of March. An opening reception will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 5. A resident of Lake Oswego, Gale considers herself to be a late bloomer in the art world. She was captured by the lure of watercolor in a one-day class and has since continued to refine her method of projecting imagery. Her style is realistic; capturing the feeling of light and emphasizing contrast makes her painting come to life. Gale is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. Her work can be viewed at Trainers Club, 333 S. State St., Lake Oswego, and the Rental Sales Gallery at the Portland Art Museum, Yamhill Gallery in Newberg and at her studio.
