The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline present a new exhibit featuring the photography of Lauren Greathouse and Betty Udesen and a collection of diverse work in the second annual City of Shoreline Employees Art Show.

Lauren Greathouse at City Hall Gallery

Greathouse’s work from the “Hallowed Halls: Abandoned Schools of Louisiana” series is an exploration of the remnants found in vacant educational institutions around that state. “With the use of color and black and white images, I deal with my own memories of grade school by recreating the vibrancy and color I remember with the poignancy of those things and places that remain. These objects and spaces speak of an interaction with society and emit a history of the complex relationship between people, and the places and things that were once a part of their lives.” Lauren’s work can be seen here 

Betty Udesen at City Hall Gallery

Udesen’s work from the Teatime Series" features the wild birds in her Seattle front yard. “I began making photographs using the same equipment I’d use for baseball games. And, as with baseball, the wait for that special moment is sometimes very long. I tuck seeds into decorative cups and pitchers. Then, I wait.

The birds that appear in The Teatime Series are considered “common.” I find that remarkable. Marvels of design and engineering, these backyard birds gave me an appreciation for a world I’d long taken for granted—the world right outside my windows.” More information about Betty and her work can be found here.

The Shoreline Employee Art Show includes paintings, photographs, wood carvings and fiber arts by staff in the City Clerks, Finance, Parks, Planning and Public Works Departments. This is a unique opportunity to see the creative side of some of the engineers, techies, planners and managers who serve the city well in their day jobs.

Shoreline City Hall is located at 17500 Midvale Ave. N, Shoreline, WA 98133. For more information please contact the Arts Council, 206-417- 4645.
