Donna Wright Book Signing

Coos Bay Artist, Donna Wright, will be making a splash at

Sage Place this Saturday, August 25th, during a book

signing, from 11-1 pm. Donna's watercolor

"Coyote Moon" is featured on the back cover of the newly

released "Splash 13: Alternative Methods in Watercolor",

published by North Light Books. Donna has spent most of her

40 year career as and artist perfecting the method of

pouring watercolor pigments, texturing the surface,

visualizing forms that appear, and bringing them to life

with minimal surface work. Dramatic and masterful in the use

of color, Donna's paintings appeal to the collector with an

affinity for abstraction and suggestive form.

A dynamic and intuitive painter, Donna has been an

instructor for Southwestern Community College for several

semesters and also teaches the pouring technique through

Sage Place. Following Donna's booksigning, she will be

teaching a collage workshop at Sage from 1-4 pm. Included

in the class will be pouring and compositional techniques

using acrylic paints, the creation of "filters" as collage

components, techniques for the palette knife and much more.

Those who attend the signing will be able to purchase books

at Sage Place for the event; the cost is $25. Students

interested in taking Donna's workshop may register by

calling Sage at (541) 329-0303; tuition is
