Gallery North features “Various Visions” from Seattle Co-Arts
In October, Gallery North will feature the artwork of a group of 15 members of Seattle Co-Arts called “Various Visions”. Each of the artists will be showing a small grouping of their work which will feature many subjects representing their own unique visions of the world. The exhibited pieces will include oil paintings, watercolors, pastel paintings, and mixed media by this group of talented artists, many of whom are well-known throughout the Pacific Northwest.
“Since we all see the world through our own eyes, this will be an interesting collection,”
says Gallery North member, Lonni Flowers, curator and member of Seattle Co-Arts.
Seattle Co-Arts was founded in 1949 as a small group of artists who wanted to paint together and eventually incorporate as a non-profit educational organization to promote the arts throughout the Seattle region. Today there are more than 150 active members who carry on those original objectives. Through the meetings, members are encouraged to expand their own creativity and artistic development with educational opportunities, and to present their work to the public in order to develop further community exposure and interest in the arts. Each year the group presents scholarships to several young and developing artists.
Come meet the artists and enjoy refreshments during the opening reception for “Various Visions of Seattle Co-Arts” on Saturday, October 5th from 1 to 4 pm at Gallery North. Many of the artists will also be at Gallery North during the Edmonds Art Walk on Thursday, October 17th from 5 to 8 pm. “Various Visions” is open to the public daily through October 31st.
