My large painting Mired (oil on canvas, 34” x 40”) has a prominent location in the installation of the Columbia City Gallery’s annual juried show. The exhibit has the theme “H2O: What is it worth?” and was juried by Greg Lundgren (curator), Merica Whitehall (Executive Director of the Nature Consortium), and Vaughn Bell (environmental artist). The chosen artworks are diverse in media and style, ranging from conceptual projects, to sculptures in materials both ancient and modern, to traditional oil painting. The ideas represented are similarly wide-ranging. The opening reception August 20 was well-attended. It is well worth a visit to the charming Columbia City neighborhood to see the show before it closes September 25. The gallery is located at 4864 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle 98118.
