About The Two Quail

This modern treatment of birds is sparse in its design, almost breathless.

About Diane O'Leary

(1935-2013, half Irish and half Comanche) Diane O'Leary painted to find evidence of what has transpired on this planet during her given era. She attended Texas Christian University, Bacone College, Harvard and Stanford, but never took a course in art. Her graduate degrees are in Southwestern archeology and in Baroque Literature (music).

O'Leary started her artistic career in early in the 1960's, studying with Eric Gibbard and Georgia O'Keefe.

Today her paintings are in most of the public and private collections of American Indian art. Public collections including Diane O'Leary's work are: Berne Museum in Berne, Switzerland; the Denver Art Museum in Colorado; the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York; the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona; the Museum of American Indian, Heye Foundation in New York; the Mitchell Indian Museum at Kendall College in Evanston, Illinois; the Millicent Rogers Foundation Museum in Taos. New Mexico; the Philbrook Art Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma; the Peabody Museum at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Stanford University in California and the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

In recent years O'Leary had largely focused on making quilts which at times relate well to her style of painting. At other times they are largely abstract--but all are hand stitched with care and a fabulous sense of design. Loon Quilt produced in 1996 is featured on page 90 of a fine publication To Honor and Comfort Native Quilting Traditions (1997).

The Living Waters of Tillamook Bay is a series of collages by Diane O’Leary, reflecting the biodiversity of the flora and fauna of the estuarine environment of Tillamook Bay, Oregon. Tillamook Bay is located on the northern Oregon coast and is a unique habitat among Pacific coast bays, because it is fed by five rivers located within the watershed. By Spring 2008 she completed 124 collages referencing this theme. These traveled to bring this environmental reality to the attention of many.
