Artist Reception with Tedd Chilless
|Date:||Sun, Jul 14, 2019|
|Time||3:00 PM to 6:00 PM|
|Venue:||Stoller Family Estate|
Our exhibit is from June 18th to September 9th. Tedd's collection grew out of his fascination with the beautiful vineyards throughout the Dundee Hills. Since last Fall, he has painted over 30 paintings which we are pleased to share. Tedd is an artist working and living in Portland, Oregon. Tedd thrives on working on portraits and figurative paintings in the fall and winter, and landscapes during the spring and summer. His 40 years working as an architect infused many of his artworks with a keen realism.
Tedd said, “Getting older means having to exercise your mind by learning new skills. Over the past few years, my painting hand developed a tremor. I had to change almost everything about my painting style, taking on a more relaxed approach and embracing the palette knife as my tool of choice. The result is artwork that’s bolder and more impressionistic. My subject, the Dundee Hills, is one of the most breathtaking spots in Oregon. Sprawling hillsides with patchworks of color and texture embrace giant skies and views that go on for miles and miles. It’s easy to get lost in its beauty.”
