What does it feel like? In my best days, I remember to ask this question and listen for an answer. All things alive feel.
This is my work. To look, to love, to learn what it is to see with eyes unburdened by preconceptions. To find the relationships
that are interlaced between within around us each. Sometimes the exploration reveals dark places, sometimes I simply bask in
the ten thousand pretty things. I paint to express the inner world within exterior avatars, our human condition, the beauty
and life around me.
Uyen-thi (T) Nguyen is an Oregon-based artist working primarily in oils. Born in Vietnam, Nguyen’s family immigrated to the US when
she was a baby. She received a Fine Arts Award from the Simi Valley Arts Association, a Printmaking Award at Moorpark College, and
scholarhips at Art Center of Design in Pasadena and Academy of Art in San Francisco. Learning each step of the way, T worked in many
different industries and later started her own business in historic downtown Cottage Grove. Her love for community brought her to
volunteer on non-profit boards, at local arts organizations and teach youth arts programs. She currently serves on the Springfield
Arts Commission, Cottage Grove Art Walk, and Galleria at the Smith.
In 2020, Nguyen was awarded an individual arts grant from Lane Arts Council for her Cottage Grove portrait project. Her painting
"At the End" won Juror's Choice Award by Jane Brumfield at The Arts Center in Corvallis and her work has been on display at the Radius
Annex Gallery and Splenderporium in Portland, Cultural Center of Cape Cod and other locations across the US.
Her most recent project, "A Garden of People: A Portrait of Cottage Grove" will be completed in the summer of 2021. Click here to
