BANDON - Second Street Gallery presents Victoria Tierney as the featured artist at the next Meet and Greet the Artist event. Tierney will be demonstrating watercolors from noon-4 p.m. on both Saturday, July 14, and Sunday, July 15, at the gallery, 210 Second St. SE in Old Town.
Tierney lives and works in Bandon, where she has made her home since 1977. Her watercolors, colored pencil murals, photography, set designs and pebble mosaics are well known on Oregon’s South Coast. She has exhibited throughout the state, through the Portland Art Museum, the Coos Art Museum and the Watercolor Society of Oregon. She has had many solo shows over the years and her work is in many collections across the country. She works in both abstract and representational styles and loves to travel, sketching and painting as she goes.
Tierney studied Fine Arts at the University of California, Berkeley, and worked as an art director and illustrator in San Francisco, New Haven, New York and Los Angeles, where she worked with Judy Chicago at the California Institute of the Arts (Womanhouse Project) and was a West Coast correspondent for the New York Village Voice. She has illustrated several children’s books. She is an art advocate as well and has curated many art shows, including the Coos Art Museum, Harbortown Events Center, Bandon Boardwalk, Evergreen Court in Coos Bay and the Southern Coos Hospital & Health Center in Bandon.
In addition to Second Street Gallery, Tierney's art can be seen at Raincoast Arts in Langlois.
