About the artist: Blue Bond has an Art Studio and Gallery located in the Historic Gilbert District.  In addition, he shows themed art at Fairweather House and Gallery, selecting a work of art that complements the ever-changing month-long exhibitions.

About Blue Bond Art Studio and Gallery:


Amazing paintings by artist Blue Bond done in oil on canvas.  Animals, people, still life, and wonderful scenery pictures delight guests.  Blue  Bond is also a teacher, and enjoys passing on his vast knowledge to novices and experienced painters alike.


Private classes in oil or acrylic are available, reasonably priced.   Stop by the Blue Bond Art Studio  and Gallery at 417 S Holladay Drive in beautiful Seaside, Oregon for a marvelous experience.

And, do not fret…although there is a “for sale” sign in front of the gallery, Blue Bond  is staying in the area…just needing for more room for classes and a fenced yard new pets.
