Brumfield Gallery was established by Jane & Mike Brumfield in 2020. Jane & Mike Brumfield have had galleries in Boise, Idaho and Hastings, England, before settling on the Oregon Coast. Prior to this Jane had a 20-year career curating for small regional museums in the South of England.
In June 2022, the Brumfields sold the gallery to Joseph Clayton. Joe owns Bronze Coast Gallery in Cannon Beach and was happy to add Brumfield Gallery to his business portfolio and gallery family. He has employed Jane Brumfield to manage both galleries, and she will remain the curator for Brumfield Gallery. Joe has an extensive background in marketing and business development, in addition to being an enthusiastic art collector.
They have established ongoing relationships with artists and collectors, with the aim of providing a supportive and welcoming environment where the appreciation and creation of new work can flourish.

They choose work that is engaging on an emotional level – work that speaks to the complicated nature of the human condition. They are often asked to categorize the kind of art they show, and find that difficult. It borders surrealism, symbolism, and fantasy, but they do not see these boxes as being relevant. It is perhaps better likened to the literary tradition of magic realism. It questions what we perceive as real and shows that there is only a thin veil between that reality and the imagined world. The work is born from authentic human experience and from a particular individual’s perspective. And then sometimes… they might show work just because they like it.
Imogen Gallery exhibits contemporary works by accomplished international artists and local emerging talent. Represented artists all share the common thread of passion and professionalism for what they do which translates to original and compelling style.
