Gaston, OR artist Lynne Taylor to speak at Coastal Arts Guild Luncheon, Thursday, September 1st.
The first Thursday of each month, the Guild holds a luncheon for members and guests at the Visual Arts Center from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM and invites Lincoln County residents interested in the arts to attend.
Always fascinated by the beauty of nature, science and spirituality, Lynne initially chose the science path, studying biology at the University of Buffalo and at Binghamton University graduate school, receiving a Biology and Teaching Master’s Degree. Eventually, wanting to be more available to her growing son, she changed her career to the artistic path. She continued to be inspired by the mysteries of the natural world, and by integrating science with spirituality, and she reflects these ideas in her paintings. Lynne often creates paintings based on an insight, a mental picture from a visioning meditation, a scientific conjecture, or a dream. She has also been working on a series involving her Celtic ancestry, using Celtic symbols and the rose, her birth flower.
Each painting has the goal of giving the viewer a new way to look at the universe, either from a tiny corner, or an expanded vision. Uniqueness is essential. Her collection includes Celtic Rose heritage paintings, paintings that are incorporations of science, spirituality and ancient history, dream image spiritual pieces, environmental statements, and the integration of all peoples: a vision
for world peace.
