TEXT AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY K.B. DIXON
This is the fourth installment of portraits in The Artist Series. The first two focused on Oregon writers. Part 3 and this installment, Part 4, focus on visual artists—the gifted, award-winning painters, sculptors, and photographers who have made invaluable contributions to the cultural life of this city and state, people whose legacies are destined to be part of our cultural history.
For an introductory look at their work, I refer you to their digital digs—their virtual ateliers.
