Art-in-the-Loft Gallery at Beach Books

616 Broadway St.

Art-in-the-Loft hosts “Emergence II,” an exhibit featuring Stefanie Shilling and Nanette Tsatsaronis.

“Why do I paint? Connection,” Shilling, an acrylic artist, said. Connection to a part of myself, connection to those around me. I believe art is an extension of one’s self, an offering, a moment in time. And, for me, art is a way of finding my way to the essence of who I am and what my existence means to the world.”

Tsatsaronis, an oil painter, writes: “The beauty of the ever-changing sky and landscape will always be my greatest inspiration. I’m enthralled by the way the constant motion of the elements at play cast varying degrees of light and shadow on the earth, as it influences all life. I have found no greater canvas than the fluidity of our spectacular Oregon sky, with its hope and power.”
