TASTE News Service, October 2, 2018 - Sixteen oil paintings by Kennewick artist, Laura Gable, are now on view at the Clore Center through December 2018.

Gable enjoys painting the varied terrain of eastern Washington where she's discovered the scenery along the Columbia Gorge and into the nearby Cascade Range to be an abundant source of material for her plein air paintings (paintings made in the outdoors). Living in a prominent wine growing region, she finds inspiration in the changing colors and patterns of the vineyards.

Gable was born and raised in rural Nebraska and spent a great deal of time enjoying the outdoors. She attended Chadron State College in Nebraska earning degrees in Accounting, and Art; and later studied graphic design at Platt College in Aurora, Colorado. She followed these practical career paths for many years until 2001, upon taking a workshop with renowned watercolor artist, Jan Kunz, she discovered a fervent need to resume the pursuit of art. Her work naturally evolved into teaching and creating art as a profession. She now creates art in the field, en plein air, and also in her art studio in historic downtown Kennewick, WA.

The artist's work has won several awards and has been exhibited at various galleries and has collectors throughout the United States. She has participated in outdoor shows and regional plein air painting competitions, including the Pacific Northwest Plein Air Festival (Mayrhill, WA) and the Blue Mountain Festival of the Arts (Joseph, OR).

"The flow of color from brush to canvas is a complete momentary expression of my inner self revealed. For in that moment, I am alive and wrapped in this stillness, there is fire," says the artist.

All pieces of Gable’s artwork are available for viewing and purchase in the Clore Center’s tasting room in Prosser through December 2018. An artist reception will be held Saturday, October 6th from 3 to 5 p.m.

Editor's note:  Named for the late Washington State University Professor considered the father of the Washington wine industry. the Walter Clore Center is a tasting room and educational center representing all aspects of the state of Washington’s wine industry. It is located in Prosser, near the southern end of the Yakima Valley.
