Art is in the autumn air as local artists prepare to bring their work into the public light on November 17th and 18th at the second annual Art Exhibit in Woodinville, hosted by the Bothell Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Nicki Wight, watercolor artist and illustrator who will also share her work this weekend explained, “Watercolor is magical, I have always loved the translucent qualities of watercolor, it is so fresh and ethereal. Each new piece of watercolor paper is a story waiting to happen and I have 10 grandchildren who provide me with great painting material.”
The event will also showcase the work of children age 12 and under and provide a hands on activity for kids to explore their creative side. Visitors may wander around live art demonstrations, including the assiduous work of book binder Aaron Mccain of Bothell, or observe Dave Hardy of Kenmore transform simple blocks of wood into mystical characters reminiscent of video game characters or local residents. Oil and acrylic artists will also show their work in action.
The art show is free and open to the public on Friday November 17th from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on November 18th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 18860 NE Woodinville Duvall Rd, Woodinville.
