Samarah Fine Art is pleased to announce that they will feature the artwork of husband and wife artists Nicholas Oberling and Jennifer Li throughout the month of June. The gallery will honor these two artists during an opening reception, which will take place on Thursday, June 5th from 6:00PM – 9:00PM as part of the Whitefish Gallery Nights.
Nicholas Oberling has been a cornerstone Montana Landscape painter in the gallery for several years. With this event, Samarah will showcase many of Nicholas’ latest works, many of which celebrate Montana’s endless natural beauty (see image below).
Nicholas Oberling is a nationally represented artist, but has poured much of his energy and focus into fostering the Flathead Valley’s ever growing art scene. Such efforts include his work as a founding member of the Montana Painters Alliance, his organization and conception of the Big Hole River in Paint fundraiser and his time as an active board member for the Hockaday Museum of Art in Kalispell.
This will be the first time that Samarah Fine Art has had the opportunity to feature the evocative artwork of oil painter Jennifer Li. With a technique inspired by the Dutch Golden Age, Jennifer brings a touch of naturalism into her subjects, giving her pieces a modern and fresh quality that sets them apart from traditional genre paintings (see image below).
Like her husband, Jennifer has been represented in galleries nationwide. The two have been based in Montana for 10 years and currently reside in Kalispell.
