Sea, Shore & Sky at the Shoreline City Hall Gallery

Sunday, April 18, 2010

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline are proud to present Shore, Sea and Sky, a new show focusing on the natural landscape. 

Artists Malcolm Edwards (photography), Betty Hageman (painting), Lisa Snow Lady (mixed media) and Sue Robertson (acrylic painting) each use their individual art forms to capture the world around us. 

This exhibit runs from May 5 – July 30, 2010 at the Shoreline City Hall Gallery. 

The public is invited: Thursday, May 27 from 5:30-7 for a special open house on the 2nd and 3rd floor of Shoreline City Hall - 185th and Midvale Ave N. Meet the artists, ask questions about their art and enjoy some refreshments and live music by the Caprice String Quartet.

More about the Artists:

Malcolm Edwards – Photography
Malcome strives to achieve a peaceful intimacy with the subject matter and the viewer.  He photographs people, the land and landscape in color and in black and white.  The photographs, while differing in subject and technique, reflect his need for close contact with beauty.

Betty’s recent work looks closely at microenvironments, the background surfaces brought forward as subject; archetypal habitats such as earth/dirt, water/ice, fire/plasma, air/gas/sky. The paintings are created by applying many thick, transparent color layers that wrap around the canvas and exhibit a depth and translucency similar to encaustic or polymer resin. 

Lisa Snow Lady – Mixed Media
Lisa’s love of botanical form and recent studies in horticulture have inspired her new work. She enjoys layering texture and color into her mixed media prints.

Sue Robertson – Acrylic Painting 
Sue Robertson works primarily with acrylic on canvas, board or watercolor paper. Her style is loose and very colorful. She considers herself an experimental painter and often incorporates elements such as ink, graphite, paper, clay and whatever other things she happens across. Whether she is painting figures, still life or abstracts, the subject is simply a vehicle for the color and stroke. 

Also on exhibit will be two large carved wooden heads by Vashon sculptor Shawn Nordfors. Nordfors has exhibited his work throughout the Northwest and has several pieces in public collections in the area. The sculptures will be on exhibit at City Hall through August.
