Photography and Printing for Fine Art and Enterprise … and You!

Claire Strickland at Bamboo Grove

It was my distinct pleasure to visit Gabriel Weiss’ Bamboo Grove Salon on Thursday to see Claire Strickland’s wonderfully evocative work.
Ms. Strickland, who received her BFA from Marylhurst University in 2008, is displaying her
Transplant Stratagem and Eco Prayers works.

Transplant Stratagem is a series of intimate format collages.

Eco Prayers Is a 5 part linocut series. Each features the human face combined with one of the 5 ancient elements-earth, water, wind, fire, and sky.

I found both sets of work engaging and enticing and was immediately drawn to the linocuts, in part because of their size as well as the composition. The pieces are very large… perhaps 16X20 … with small edition limits.

Chasing the Muse

We are finally launching our revamped website! It still is growing and will have many more features aimed at Artists, Photographers, Designers, and anyone needing help with art, graphics, and color reproduction in general. We invite you to explore the other pages to the site to discover more about JDA Creative Services.

With our new website, we are initiating a new blog.

The blog is for and about you!

We'll be featuring news about our clients, the art world - both locally and farther afield, local openings, and some news from us! We intend this to become a community resource and we need your help and input to be successful! Please send us your news to share.

  • Galleries: let us know your openings and closings. Tell us about your featured artists.
  • Art Fans and Patrons: Found a new gallery? Been to an especially impressive show? We'd love to know about it!
  • Everyone: If you find a artist's great blog entry or article, let us know. We'd love to help them get some exposure!
