Focus Artists

In May, Red Chair Gallery will showcase: 

Sue Lyon-Manley

Specializes in plein air landscapes.

Manley finds that pastels, with their opulent colors, exquisitely capture views of Sparks Lake, Mt. Jefferson, the Deschutes River, and the like.

Runnels, who retired here after 30 years of running a communications company, prefers to work in oil on larger canvases, capturing the movement of our quaking aspen trees in all seasons. He also paints abstract designs

Eleanor Murphey

Pottery reflects Craftsman Era design. 

Murphey creates stoneware pieces using a wax resist process for glazing. They include vases, bowls and other functional shapes, which she adorns with vivid floral or organic designs, evoking the Craftsman Era. Her goal is “to make everyday objects things of beauty,” she says.
