Salem artist James Southworth’s latest collection of vibrant pastel paintings focuses on the timeless charm of central Italy. Why Tuscany and Umbria? James says, “In each work, I try to express the colors, textures and curvature of this amazing land.  So many contrasts:  the blue skies and seas contrast with the gritty stone work; the myriad of colors of the glass works; the hues at dusk; the graceful archways and domes everywhere we turned.”  A self-taught artist, James finds great inspiration in the space, light, color and abstraction of artists such as Paul Cézanne, Wolf Kahn, Josef Alber, and Johannis Itten.

James Southworth has been a poster artist for the Salem Wine & Food Festival, the Keizer Iris Festival (twice), and the Salem Art Fair & Festival.  His work has been awarded Best of Show for the Northwest Pastel Society International Show (twice), Best of Show for the Artist in Action “Red” Show, and the Canson Award for the Pastel Society of America Show in New York City. He is the father of three grown children, grandfather of three, and has been happily married to his wife, Jean, for 35 years.
