Evenhus Fine Art

Contact: 509-884-3072

Creating art is my life-long passion. I work in both oils and pastels in an impressionistic style leaning toward complete abstraction, enjoying the process of mark making, layering, wiping out and repainting until my vision reveals itself. I use an object or landscape as a starting point for my
compositions, focusing on composition, color, movement and emotion to create a painting that stops you in your tracks and touches your soul each time you see it

Jan Cook Mack Studio

529 Easy Street
Wenatchee, WA 98801

Jan Cook Mack grew up in the United States and Taiwan, and received her Fine Arts degree from Bennington College in Vermont. She established herself as a fine artist in New York City before moving to eastern Washington State in 1986.

Mack’s paintings arise out of an emotional response to the pursuit of an intimate relationship with the natural world. She began painting dairy cows while living in Vermont in 1970. “The geometry of their weight and placement offered an armature of formal structure which reinforced my realism” she explains. “My love of cows gave me a connection to the activities of farming. Tractors, bales, windrows became subjects. From a distance, farming tools and process seemed like large-scale drawing on the land.”

Her move from Vermont to Washington expanded her pastoral views to include explosive wildscape vistas. “Painting onsite allows the energy of a place to fully enter the artwork and give a voice to invisible forces,” she says. “I seek high elevation painting sites to depict a bird’s-eye view of the dynamic geology spread out below.” Her studies in Taiwan and Chinese hand-scroll painting also has influenced her panoramic vision of the West.

Mack is working on a series entitled “100 Views of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers,” after Hokusai’s series “100 Views of MT Fuji.” She also has painted official portraits of Vermont’s Governor Madeleine Kunin, Senator Arthur Gibb, and two federal judges. Her work is collected by Bankers Trust, Exxon, IBM and is displayed in numerous corporate headquarters.

Artist’s studio and gallery open to visitors. Oil paintings and prints specializing in valley landscapes, orchards, fruit (apples, cherries, peaches) wilderness scenes (lakes and waterfalls). Open year round, Saturday & Sunday, weekdays by appointment (509) 662-8383.

You can find some of her paintings and prints for sale at Wenatchee’s Two Rivers Gallery, 102 N. Columbia St.

But don’t buy into the idea that Flores simply is creating art to cash in on her talents. “If it sells, good; if it doesn’t, the joy of making it was priceless,” she said. Flores’ creations go beyond the visual arts. She’s published two books of poetry in Spanish, including one she wrote as she recovered from the breakup of her first marriage. The book’s recurring themes are survival, healing and female strength.

Flores was born in Guatemala and grew up in El Salvador. She moved to the United States at age 15, spending more than two decades in the Los Angeles area. There, she earned master’s degrees in fine arts and counseling psychology. She moved to Wenatchee in 1992. She’s worked as an art teacher and family counselor.

She incorporates art therapy into her family counseling work, with the goal of bringing healing to the budding artists. She said poetry, theater, painting and sculpture are tools she uses to increase self-esteem, practice relaxation and “let the unconscious mind get in touch with the past.”
