In a two-week Wall Spotlight Show from July 6-19, the Yaquina Art Association will be featuring the artwork of John Bradley and Luella Hartwell.

The Yaquina Art Association Gallery is located at 789 NW Beach Drive in Newport. Hours of operation are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. 

Bradley is a master watercolorist, with very well developed techniques for depicting nature’s many beautiful places, and he continues to produce artwork at the age of 98. He is a member of Yaquina Art Association and teaches classes, as well. Bradley began his art career after retiring from the dental profession. Living in Waldport with a lovely ocean view has inspired many paintings of seascapes.

Capturing a wave, a flower’s beauty, rustic barns from Oregon’s back roads, the many colors of tide pools or the peacefulness of forest roads has been a quest and passion for Hartwell. She uses pastel, acrylic, ink and watercolor to depict and preserve the beauty she encounters and enjoys. A resident of Seal Rock for the past 22 years, Hartwell says being a member of Yaquina Art Association has provided education, wonderful friendships and an unending source of inspiration.
