Michael Parsons Fine Art
716 SW Madison St
Hours: wed-sat 12-5pm
The gallery is focused primarily on historic art made in the Northwest between 1850 and 1970, although we do represent many fine contemporary artists. We are primarily a painting gallery, but are also deeply interested in print making, sculpture, drawing, photography, watercolor, and ceramics. The gallery is very eclectic in nature, spanning 19th century landscape painting through abstraction, with an emphasis on mid 20th century artists.
Nov 1-Dec 2 Historic Oregon Still Life Painters. Myra Wiggins & Myna Russell. Born in Salem, Oregon, Wiggins found international success as both a painter and photographer. Invited by Alfred Stieglitz to exhibit with the Photo-Secession, Wiggins studied painting with William Merritt Chase at the Art Students League in New York. Myna Russell came to Oregon in 1920, working primarily as a still life painter. She developed a colorful, Impressionist style, portraying Arts and Crafts pottery and beautiful floral arrangements.
