Beauty of the Northwest
Gallery North announces its 10th annual Beauty of the Northwest invitational art show featuring 58 works of art created by 37 Washington artists. This exhibit allows the artists to explore various creative interpretations that celebrate the splendor of our region. The show opens August 1st at Gallery North in downtown Edmonds. All artwork is available for purchase during the show which is open to the public seven days a week until August 30th.
Our guest juror, Darlene Lucas, will select the awards for the 2019 Beauty of the Northwest show. Ms. Lucas is a well-known local artist who has successfully exhibited in many galleries and special exhibitions throughout the state. She is a member of Women Painters of Washington, Northwest Watercolor Society, and the International Society of Experimental Artists. Ms. Lucas taught art in the public schools for 40 years and has taught watercolor for the Edmonds Fine Arts Foundation.
Juror Darlene Lucas says, “I look carefully at every work of art. I am looking first of all for strong visual design and personal interpretation. This should be supported with technical competence…there are many ways to produce excellent works.”
The poster art for the Beauty of the Northwest is a painting by Beverly Fotheringham. The award for this year was donated by Digital Canvas NW.
The Artists’ Reception will be at Gallery North on Saturday, August 10th from 1 to 4 pm with awards presented at 2 pm. Edmonds Art Walk on August 15th from 5-8 pm will feature the Beauty of the Northwest exhibit. The public is invited to attend both of these free events to enjoy refreshments and meet many of the artists.
