Artist Spotlight: Gail Ragains

Jun 5, 19

Gail Ragains is a remarkable person who has done so much, and is still doing so much! We’d all like to take a stroll in her back-yard and talk to her all about the crazy experience of participating in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon! Amazing and driven, her painting style is relaxed and riddled with improvisation.

She allows the paint to just be what it is, and non-intentionally reacts to the paint as it’s applied with ease. The work speaks for itself as it portrays it’s raw form and seemingly exists to the viewer as an experience.

With 25 years of being a massage therapist under her belt, she depicts the human form with a hands-on outlook; and having been painting since the early 1900’s, she is represented in galleries in both the US and Canada— Where her figures induce a sense of overall relaxation.
