Sue Ellen Zhang, a sophomore at Shorecrest High School, will exhibit her art work in a solo exhibition at the Shoreline Arts Festival on June 25 and 26 at the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline 98133. There will be a reception for her at 11:30am on June 25 in the Board meeting room.
A talented artist, she has shown her work at the Arts Festival in the youth exhibit since she was in 1st grade. Many of her artworks won first place and were chosen for the Shoreline School District calendars.
In February 2016, the Lynnwood Art Commission selected her for a solo art exhibition. She has also been accepted into the 16th Annual Kenmore Art Show in 2014 and the Kenmore Youth Art Exhibit in 2015. In 2010 and 2012, she won the Washington State PTA Reflections Awards of Excellence for Visual Arts. She studies art with renowned Chinese American artist Long Gao.
Sue Ellen is passionate about her creativity. Besides art, she also enjoys piano, swimming, and ballet. She has been dancing at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School for over 7 years, and has performed in “The Nutcracker”, “Don Quixote”, and “Snow White” at McCaw Hall.
Sue Ellen’s oil paintings and drawings are a reflection of what she sees and experiences.
She says, “They are also a way for me to practice my skills as an artist and gain knowledge about different types of art. I enjoy the freedom of changing something to what I want it to look like, and to the style that expresses a mood.”
