Cathedral Ridge Winery and the Columbia Center for the Arts partner to present quarterly art shows at the winery. Each show features the artist’s representations of art inspired by the vineyard as well as other Gorge-themed pieces.

My paintings are acrylic and mixed media on canvas. The subject matter varies from still life, to landscape to the painted word. Creating art is a journey for me. I change subjects, styles etc to illustrate whatever comes into my imagination. I prefer working on large canvases but start by making several small paintings and continue to the larger ones. I also create fiber art pieces with themes similar to my paintings. I offer classes several times a year in my studio. The goal is to help others on their own creative journey. My paintings can be seen at various times at Columbia Art Gallery and The Dalles Art Center. I also participate in Gorge Artists Open Studio in April each year. I have created children’s coloring books as well as art instruction books available on Amazon. Also originals and prints of my work are available on Saatchi Art and Xanadu Gallery Studios online. Scarves, bags and garments printed from my paintings are available online at Vida and Co/charleneriversstudiio. I welcome visitors to my studio year round by appointment. I have a web site, a blog, and I am on Facebook and Pinterest.
