Artist of the Week
As part of our mission to promote the arts in the Palmer community, we want to take advantage of the Friday crowds to give local artists a platform to showcase and discuss their work! Each week, a different local artist’s work will be displayed in our hall gallery, and the artist will be available for a short Q&A the first Friday of opening.
Please enjoy the work of our current Artist of the Week below and a Q&A chat with artist!
June 26th-July 2nd
As soon I could hold a pencil I began drawing. I studied art in college and have continued to create art over the years. Since retiring from my job as a school librarian I have devoted myself to my art. For over 30 years my main medium was watercolor. In the past couple of years I have come to love the beauty of oil painting, the intense color I get with pastels, and the fun of painting with acrylics. I have always loved collage and have begun incorporating this into many of my current works as well.
Art journaling has become important to me- I journal every Sunday with a group of Palmer artists. I recently taught classes in creating hand-made journals and in collage. I am currently working on my first solo show to be hung in March here in Palmer. I am the vice president of the Valley Fine Arts Association.
