The Gallery at Town Center Lake Forest Park
Presents 

Brian Kern and Diane Walker
January 2 - February 17, 2018

The Gallery at Town Center in Lake Forest Park is exhibiting a selection of works by Fine Art Oil Painter Brian Kern and Abstract Impressionist Diane Walker on view January 2 – February 17, 2018. 

See these works and the creations of over 90 other local artists during gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, Noon to 5pm.

Brian Kern’s education is in Mechanical Engineering, but he has worked as a graphic artist, illustrator, boat builder, programmer, musician, teacher, writer, internet systems troubleshooter, Dandelion Botanical Company store owner, and artist. He has been an ocean sailor, taught sailing and navigation, built a 42′ sailboat, and lived aboard a 47′ pilothouse trawler on Lake Union in Seattle for several years. He grew up in the greater Seattle area and has spent much of his time exploring the woods, waters, and mountains here. The last five years Kern has focused on his art and arts community.

Diane Walker’s abstract impressionist paintings are informed by her 15-year career as a contemplative photographer. Working primarily in acrylics, she creates mystical abstract paintings that reflect her more than 20 years spent living on and photographing islands in the Pacific Northwest. Like her photographs, her paintings emerge out of her daily meditation practice: she rarely approaches the canvas with a specific plan in mind, but rather applies the paint in response to the promptings of the moment. The resulting works dance in that thin zone between the formless and form, drifting from individual to universal and back again, and inviting the viewer into an open, imaginative, and peaceful space.

The Gallery at Town Center is a program of the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Arts Council and is located inside the Lake Forest Park Town Center on the lower level. 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park 98155.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to cultivate creativity and inspire our community through the arts.
