Local artists Heidi Curley, Liz Pike and Tamra Sheline will host a grand opening celebration of their newest venture, RedDoor Gallery in Camas June 7th following an official ribbon cutting ceremony. A soft opening is scheduled for First Friday Art Walk on Friday, May 3rd.

RedDoor Gallery will feature original works of art by gallery owners Curley, Pike and Sheline. A limited number of other artists will have their work represented at the gallery. The gallery will lease its instructional art studio to other art teachers. Plans also include housing a small artist community within the building for individual painters who need space to make their art.

Curley, Pike, and Sheline, all accomplished professional painters, have developed a large following of art students in their respective styles of work. Curley and Sheline will hold monthly classes at RedDoor Gallery. Pike will continue to teach scheduled ART FARM classes at Shangri-La Farm in Fern Prairie.

In addition to hosting an upscale First Friday Art Walk reception each month from 5pm to 8pm, RedDoor Gallery will also host Thirsty Art Thursday featuring a live painting demonstration from 5-7pm every Thursday evening.

RedDoor Gallery is making personal studio space available for local artists seeking a comfortable and relaxing place to make art. The mission is to support creative pursuits for a variety of artists and skill levels.

Both professional painters as well as emerging artists are invited to participate.

Each studio artist will have access to their own dedicated 50 square feet area, located on the second floor mezzanine. The shared space offers great natural lighting to inspire works.

Six month sub-leases are available for both furnished and unfurnished personal studio space, accommodating up to four artists.

The dedicated art making space is designed to help makers create their dreams, connect with the community and collaborate with other artists.

To schedule a tour of personal studio space, contact Liz Pike at 360-281-8720.
