Thank you to everyone who came to our one year Anniversary Party and Art Show and to those who couldn't make it but were there in spirit. We appreciate the kind words and support!
Our guest artist was Melissa McClain. Melissa spent her corporate career in Crisis Management, focusing on Survivor and Family Assistance. Her Water Colors Collection, macro images created from photos of the bottoms of boats, are abstract art with imagination. No matter where the camera takes Melissa, her images have a strong painterly feel and speak to people through color and artistry.
We also welcomed our new member artist Greta Dutton who joined us in January of 2016. She moved from Indiana to Seattle in 2014 and gave up working as a graphic and web designer to focus on painting and her family. Greta graduated from DePauw University with a BA in Studio Art and a concentration in oil painting. She also studied art at Pepperdine University. Greta's art is inspired by moods, moments, memory and her quest to understand life. She loves exploring color and shapes as well as water, floral and atmospheric elements.
As always, our other members, Corrie Ebel, Julie Jacobson and Laura Van Horne had beautiful new pieces of art at the opening. If you weren't able to make it to the opening and wanted to, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. Or take a chance and stop by the studio and see us hard at work.
Thanks again for a fun evening of friends, laughter, wine and art!
