Welcoming  encaustic artist Claudia Fuenzalida Johns.

The strength of WILD BEAUTY lies in the detailed and multivariate perspectives each artist brings showing us a different viewpoint.

They all use WILD BEAUTY as the theme in their work but they use different techniques and the way they see it is distinctively unique.





Ron Nicolaides lives in Oregon and studied art at Washington University in St. Louis Missouri, but is primarily a self-taught artist. He painted his first oil seascape in his teens and credits art museums as a basis for his continuing knowledge of art and the Hudson River School style he pursues.

His strength is his capacity to push the limits of oils and multiply glazes to create the masterful works that bring the viewer right into the scene. His work is on exhibit in museums and selected galleries throughout the United States.





Ron Nicolaides is a featured artist in the book  Northwest Artists- A Collection of Works by Notable Northwest Artists.  Hardbound. 223 pages, 400 color illustrations. Signed copies available at Fairweather’s.  $29.95





Published Cameron Blagg Jr. is a founding member of the Northwest Artists Association.
