Loni’s passion for art started as a young girl. Loni loved to draw and spent many hours with sketchbook in hand. She was fortunate to have several opportunities to travel around the world and experience art with her mother, who encouraged her to pursue her own creativity.
After graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Art from Oregon State University, Loni created and sold her own pastel work while enjoying a career in gallery sales and management at the Lawrence Gallery at Salishan, and at the Carole Smith Gallery in Salem.
While raising her children on the family homestead, Loni began teaching art literacy in public and private schools as a volunteer. Loni believes that art saves lives and it is a basic need/right for everyone. Thus she has dedicated her life to giving opportunities for others to have access to art and culture. Places like the Chehalem Cultural Center, a center she helped start over ten years ago, as well as ART Elements Gallery, are proof to her commitment and dedication.
She now uses her creative talents to transform historical buildings into new usable spaces for unique business opportunities with a fresh contemporary look while maintaining respect for the legacy of the past. From spatial design, color palettes, furnishings, and ultimately artwork consulting, Loni can assist with any size project.
Loni’s personal collection is an eclectic mix of found treasures from her travels as well as abstract and landscape paintings.
Sarah Askin graduated with a degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Interior & Fashion Design from George Fox University. She started working with Loni and her team in 2009 as an intern for hospitality venues, and came to the ART Elements team shortly after the Gallery opened in 2010.
Key strengths added to the team include inventory management, spatial design, a creative flair for devising displays and exhibitions, and strong communication and people skills.
Sarah loves representing the abundantly talented local artists and seeing their work evolve as life and inspirations change.
Sarah’s personal collection contains an array of abstract, modern, and whimsical pieces.
Sarah Moore joined the team of staff at the gallery in July of 2017. She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Seattle Pacific University, and then earned a M.A. in Art Therapy from Marylhurst University.
Her warm and inviting personality, as well as her knowledge and passion for art, is a valuable contribution to the gallery. She enjoys the opportunity to invite people to experience beauty and meaning through art.
She values the ability to represent local artists and share their work with those who venture into the gallery. Inspired by the art and nature of Oregon, Sarah enjoys painting and drawing in her spare time.
