The show opening reception was held this past Thursday evening (Sept 17) and I am happy to report that one of the pieces that I entered (and which is shown in my previous post) "Cup Full of Cherries" won a Third Place Award and also sold that evening. This was a real pleasant boost for me. My thanks to the Juror Margaret Bullock, the American Art Company Gallery, and to Women Painters of Washington and of course to the purchaser of the painting.

Vashon Island Venture
Blue Heron Gallery, Vashon Island, will be the next stop for my collection of artwork. Along with three other artists I have been invited to show my artwork at this prestigious gallery. Esperanza Grundy and I will cover the walls with our art and John Luke and Gordon Barnett will fill the room with wood and metal artwork. The gallery reception is Friday, August 7th, from 6 to 9 pm and it is open to everyone. It is likely to be a nice evening for a gallery visit and a ferry ride if you are not a Vashon resident. The gallery is at 19704 Vashon Hwy, and the show will continue from August 7 through 27.
I also have artwork at Semantics Gallery, 110 4th Avenue North, Edmonds, WA. Semantics also has a great collection of 2D and 3D artwork--carvings, jewelry, etc. The Edmonds Art Walk is the 3rd Thursday of each month.
WPW Gallery, Columbia Center Bldg, 5th and Columbia, Seattle, WA
My work has also been in a 3 month exhibition on the 3rd floor of the Columbia Center Bldg. This exhibition comes to a close this Friday, July 31st. If you have a chance, stop by to see a very fine exhibit called “Summer Dreaming.”

CVG Statewide Exhibition
331 Pacific Ave, Bremerton
I am proud to announce that I will have one artwork included in this juried exhibition which opens February 1 and runs through the month at the Collective Visions Gallery in Bremerton. There are 130 artworks which were juried by Gary Faigin, Artistic Director of Gage Academy in Seattle. These were chosen from over 800 works submitted by residents of Washington State. My piece is called “Still Life or Landscape.”
Edmonds City Library
700 Main Street, Edmonds
I have been invited by the City of Edmonds to display my colored pencil artwork there for the month of February. I will have 16 pieces there. Edmonds is always special to me since I grew up there and graduated from Edmonds High.
110 4th Avenue North, Edmonds
I will have 5 mixed media artworks at Semantics during February. These are quite different from my colored pencil work. They start with a piece of black paper. Some of the paper is cut away, watercolored rice paper and other papers are added and on some of them colored pencil is layered over the top.
Now I need to get busy creating more for other upcoming shows to be announced later.
