Lori Garfield, Artist
Growing up in Seattle, art was Lori Garfield’s best friend. By nature, compassionate and empathetic, it was then an easy road to animal art. For a number of years Lori developed style and focus through workshops and independent study. After leaving the pull of corporate distraction behind, she spent three years at Art Academy and has returned with a renewed commitment for her work to touch a viewers’ heart that it may move them from taker to caretaker.
Lori Garfield visited the sanctuary where her heart was captured by the personalities of the animals she found there, and this is where the artistic process began! She created eight original oil paintings of some of the horses, llamas, seeing-eye sheep that she met there. Garfield has been a student of Stefan Baumann and she also spent three years at the Art Academy in Seattle.
More important than marketing strictly to sales Lori Garfield reminds us to step out of the fast lane and consider our impact on the planet and those who have no voice. “So please come with me and my art and be reminded of the wisdom of Chief Seattle* in 1854: ‘Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money’.” *Chief Seattle 1780-1866
A portion of Lori’s animal art sales goes to Humanity for Horses, a 501c3 non profit organization committed to rescuing horses (and other animals) and to The Morris Animal Foundation, a non profit organization that invests in the science of advancing veterinary care for companion animals, horses and wildlife.
The Gallery in Mount Shasta is showcasing new oil paintings by Chuck Prudhomme!
Chuck is a new artist to The Gallery.
He is described as a “Colorist” and prefers to paint with the natural lighting that plein-aire painting provides when he paints landscapes or architectural paintings. His preferred medium is oil paints, which he uses to express a colorful world and portraits.
Chuck Prudhomme, Artist
Prudhomme began his artistic career in 2002, after 21 years flying helicopters for the US Army and the US Coast Guard, flying emergency medical helicopters for hospitals in Texas, Arizona and California, operating fire suppression helicopters for Cal Fire and a stint as a Flight Safety Officer for a helicopter company.
He has turned retirement into a foray into life as an artist. Regular journeys on his Harley-Davidson, cruising the back roads and highways of the country, bring plenty of inspiration to his canvas.
Prudhomme has lived in Redding for over ten years, far away from where he grew up in East Africa! “I’ve traveled my entire life,” he said. “Now, I have no destination in mind. There are no plans. The journey is the destination.”

A Little Biography of Bruce Anthony
Born in 1948. Grew up in San Diego, California, and Great Falls, Montana. Military service included tour in Viet Nam, 1968-9. Studied Forestry at COS, 1971-73. Worked in the woods 1974-9 as a timber cruiser. Moved to Portland, Oregon, 1980. Attended Pacific Northwest College of Art, 1980-84. Received a BFA in painting, won the Painting Prize for that year. Moved back to Siskiyou County that summer, and have lived and painted here ever since. Paintings in many homes locally and throughout California. Very few shows over the years.
I love this area, and try to document its beauty and diversity as faithfully as I can. The light here is unique. Its clarity provides for intense color and hard-etched shadows. There is a graphic quality to the landscape that I find fascinating and try to portray. The Siskiyous, the Klamath Knot, Mt Shasta, and these extreme southern Cascades are like no other area in the US, indeed, in all the world. Many travellers have painted or photographed the big mountain, but very few artists stay to experience and record the raw power of this land. They are a select group of survivors who have given in to the seduction of this place.
