Shoreline City Hall Gallery features local artists

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Shoes, boats, landscapes and more: the new Gallery in Shoreline City Hall debuted along with the new civic building at the October ribbon-cutting and dedication celebration.
This interior gallery, showcasing rotating exhibits of work by local and regional artists, is part of the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council’s long-time Gallery Program. The first exhibit includes 47 paintings, woodcut prints and silk constructions by nine of Shoreline’s many talented artists: Joan Archer, Ann Blanch, Chris Gildow, Marsha Lippert, Jane Mayer, John Moilanen, Amy Pleasant, Cheryl Waale, and Barbara Zander.
This work is on exhibit through December in the second and third floor hallways with a few additional pieces on the first and fourth floors. There is a Gallery Guide on each floor with information about the artists and their work. The fourth floor also includes seven pieces from the Arts Council’s Portable Works Collection, on loan to City Hall for at least a year.
City Hall visitors should also be sure to check out the permanent artwork in the courtyard and lobby. Linda Beaumont’s Limelight graces four stories of the north fa├žade facing the courtyard, and Leo Saul Berk’s Cloud Bank shimmers over the lobby living room area. There is also a burbling fountain by Richard Hestekind in the courtyard creating a calming area for conversation or reflection.
All of the art may be viewed during normal business hours, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday, except official holidays.
For more information about the permanent or rotating artwork or high-resolution versions of the attached photos, please contact Shoreline Public Art Coordinator Ros Bird at (206) 801-2661.
