James K. Orellana, who was educated at the University of Houston, has lived and worked
on a small farm near Fayetteville for the last seven years. His highly-regarded oil paintings, often
surrounded by quixotic frames, and other works have been featured in numerous solo and group
exhibits. He has been a member of the Live Oak Art Center for several years, and had a solo exhibit
there in 1 992. More recently, his work was featured in the 1 993 Texas Biennial in Dallas. The April
1994 American Art magazine featured a color photograph of and commentary on one of his
paintings from that show. Presently, his work is on exhibit in a solo show at the Southwest Crafts
Center in San Antonio.
