Featured Artists for June are Roy Lowry and JuLee Wolfe
Roy Lowry is a founding artist of the Gallery of Ocean Shores and North Beach Artists Guild, established eight years ago. While versed in many media, Roy is well known in this area for his watercolors and pastels, and for alcohol ink paintings on tile and paper. Roy received his formal art training in Spokane and had a lengthy career as an artist and art director in fabric design in Hawaii. He chose to settle in Ocean Shores to devote full time to fine art. His work is exhibited at the Gallery of Ocean Shores and at other galleries in the Northwest.
Roy is a sought-after teacher in the area. He is a frequent instructor for Grays Harbor College’s Community Education Program and offers weekly classes at the Gallery of Ocean Shores in a variety of media. Students value his teaching skills, generosity and positive encouragement.
JuLee Wolfe has been interested in art all her life. Whether it be painting with oil, stain glass, quilting, or wearable art design she has searched for a medium that spoke to her soul. In 2005 she discovered polymer clay and her art took a new direction. She joined the Northwest Polymer Clay Guild and served as Vice President of their board for 4 years. Polymer opened new worlds, as she traveled to learn from master teachers, even taking 3 cruises with special polymer classes given on board.
Working full time in a clinical laboratory did not give her the time she needed to explore her art fully, but since her retirement and move to Ocean Shores last year, she has committed to becoming a full time artist. Currently she specializes in bead and jewelry design, but is looked forward to exploring other creative expressions using her chosen medium.
