Diane Russell: Painter of musicians and OMN photographer / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Catfish Lou's #183

By TOM D'ANTONI // Painter and photographer Diane Russell has a huge show up in the Art Bar for the 2019 Portland Jazz Festival...and you can see lots of her photo galleries right here on OMN!

OMN’s Coffeeshop Conversations is back for our second week of what we hope to be a long run at our new home Catfish Lou’s at 2460 NW 24th Ave. It’s a real music club which won Muddy Awards for Best Venue from the Cascade Blues Association for the past two years.

With me today is painter and photographer Diane Russell. You’ve seen her paintings and drawings of musicians all over town, including in here. And you’ve seen her photography on OMN for many years and we’re happy to be able to have her work on our pages.

So we’ll be talking about a show she has up at the ArtBar as part of the 2019 Portland Jazz Festival and how she works and also about fighting it out in photographer scrums at concerts.

Let’s meet Diane Russell.
