I’ll be in a new location, along with two wonderful artists (Dianna Shane & Donna Stevens). The address is 1014 NE 148th Ave, and I hope to see you there! Visit all 13 East Side artists listed on our postcards below (postcards also available at each studio) over the two weekends, and you will be entered to win original art!

VICTORIA S. RUSSELL September 2, 1928 – August 29, 2022

My mom, Victoria, passed away on August 29th, just four days before her 94th birthday.  She was a wonderful artist, and specialized in portraiture, still life, and creating whimsical characters and subjects, both from life and from her imagination. She loved all of the arts, including dance, music, theater, and literature, and she shared that love with her family and friends. Mom found beauty everywhere, and will be remembered as a woman of grace, kindness, and generosity. Her artwork has been archived on her website for everyone to see at https://www.victoriasrussell.com/. I love you, mom, and I’m forever grateful for the gift of art that you gave me.
