   Bothell's Framewright Galley is hosting a month-long exhibit by a dozen local artists who humorously call themselves the "Northshore 12."

   The name is a take-off on a group of Russian artists from St. Petersburg's Hermitage Group who have been touring the U.S. since the fall of the Iron Curtain and who recently conducted workshops at Seattle's Frye Museum.

   The exhibit, "To Russia With Love," is a tribute to Russian Impressionism and a celebration by the Northshore 12 of eight years of study under regional artist Patricia Raab, who teaches at the Arts Umbrella in downtown Bothell.

   Artists exhibiting in the show include Patricia Raab, Jamie Bartalamay, Lynda Buchanan, Judith Erickson, Mary Ann Germann, Terry Moos, Lucille Peterson, Roni Uyeda, Chris Witzke, Brian Cole, Brad Peterson, and Ted Pankowski. The exhibit opens July 30 with an artists' reception from 5 to 8 p.m. at Framewright Gallery, located at 18104 102nd Ave. NE in downtown Bothell.

   "To Russia With Love" will run through Sept. 7. For further information, contact Lynn Asmann at 425-483-7385.
