Catherine Hingson

Cathrine Hingson


Catherine Hingson watercolor painter Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, Catherine developed an early love of nature and the outdoors. She paints large impressionistic Northwest landscapes. Her use of color is quite notable in her work no matter what medium she is using. She likes the free and easy way that watercolors mixed together and the textural effects that one can achieve when working in oil. As she has developed her art skills over the past 25 years, she has found great peace and satisfaction in painting the many beautiful scenes around her. Marine themes often show up in her work which can be viewed at her home in Depoe Bay Oregon or at the Artist’s Co-op Gallery in Lincoln City Oregon.

Kimberly Ota



Since her first ceramics class in high school, Kimberly Ota found herself returning to clay in her free time via community art spaces. Kimberly moved to Lincoln City in 2016 with the opportunity to catch a glimpse into the art world via an administrative position at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. She was lucky to find a community of ceramicists at the clay studio in the Lincoln City Cultural Center, where she is now giving back a little by learning the ropes of running the studio as she continues to follow her curiosity in clay. Through ceramics, Kimberly explores the push and pull of control and letting go – pairing of clay molded by her hands with the somewhat uncontrollable decoration of woodfired kilns or anticipating the play between simply shaped vessels with natural materials arranged just so.

Rosemary Riddle-Achelpohl



As an artist and educator now, I am able to take my experience in business, consulting, training and development, and mix it up with my passion for life and beauty. While earning a Masters’ in Liberal Arts from SMU in Dallas, I studied the masters and fell in love with their expressions of life. Painting with oils and a palette knife allow me to express life through a visual message on canvas with color and rich textures. I continue to explore other mediums. I teach English as a Second Language courses at a local college. The experiences of my global student base contribute to my world view and spill over into my art. As an Artist at Giddens Gallery of Fine Art in Grapevine, Texas I am able to share my passion and learn from my fellow artists every day,

My works are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, South America and Asia.

Bill Hunt



Bill Hunt with HeronI bring a lifetime of experience in natural history and marine biology to my sculpture.  Born in Bremerton, WA;  raised on the Mojave Desert; I have a background in Marine Biology with degrees in Fisheries Management from Humboldt State University, and over 7 years of fisheries research before starting my career as a sculptor in 1979.  I was initially attracted to a career in marine biology, because of the esthetics, the grace and beauty of marine wildlife.   I have been sculpting marine and other wildlife and paleo wildlife full time for over 37 years now.   I strive to sculpt my subjects in a way that combines scientific accuracy and detail with an elegant and graceful presentation.  Since moving to Oregon in 2008, I have also been involved in building  free form furniture out of the driftwood, so abundant here on the coast.
