Meet Artist Joanne Kollman at First Friday, November 2nd at 6 pm.

About Joanne Radmilovich Kollman

Joanne is a Northwest oil painter; her representational paintings of the figure, landscape and still life are earmarked by a lyrical style and unique eye for design. Brushwork and use of broken color elicit movement and spontaneity in her paintings.

Joanne received an artistic focus grant through the Regional Arts and Culture Council in 2013 for her figurative series: Northwest Neighbors: Who Are We? The project allowed her to work for many months and mount several exhibits of figurative paintings that depict individuals she viewed in her local surroundings. She worked and taught painting from a studio in the Historical Troy Laundry Building in Portland Oregon for over a decade. Joanne juries into Portland Open Studios yearly to open her studio and art practice to the local community. She received People’s Choice, Best Cityscape, 3rd place and honorable mentions in several 2015 competitions and juried exhibitions as well as the commission for Portland Rose Festival Queen.
