Kim Faucher’s Work to be Featured in the Salon

Our Salon artist, Kim Faucher was born in Paynes Creek, a tiny community west of Mt. Lassen in Northern California, and lived with her family in a converted chicken house with dirt floor, no electricity and no running water. Faucher developed her deep appreciation of nature running wild through the remote underbrush of volcanic terrain. Then sitting on a small stool in her father’s small sawmill, surrounded by piles of mill ends, she would draw on the smooth planed wood with a thick carpenter’s pencil. Kim has since taken classes locally and all over the United States as well as in Italy.

Faucher enjoys drawing, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media and oil with drawing as a constant. She enjoys the transparency and watery movement of watercolor, but is moved by the buttery smoothness and drama of oils. She is a member of the Watercolor Society of Oreton.

Faucher will exhibit paintings showing her skills and interests. “Sunflower Symphony” and “Anthurium with Mangos” are representative of her love of nature. The painting “Storm Coming” shows her skill with looseness of brush strokes and brilliant use of color. Come into the gallery to see her lovely pieces, perfect for gifts.


Black and White with a Touch of Color

Artists of Art du Jour Gallery have been very creative with the theme “Black and White with a touch of Color” for the Featured Wall. Come in to see the amazing graphic designs done by long time local artist Dick Woods.
