Neill Public Library shines a spotlight on seven artists for ArtFest!

 

Shelly Gilmore has been welding scrap metal and found object art since 20087. She uses the name Dandelion Wine Company to represent her art practice; the name seems fitting because she turns something unwanted into something treasured.

 

Gabriella Ball, Peggy Conrad, Christina Darby, Cathy Gottschalk, Bobbi Kelly, and Mary Reed are members of Palouse Watercolor Socius.

·         Gabriella exhibits her work regularly at Avenue West Gallery in Spokane and other shows in our area.

·         Peggy has had work in many juried shows and received numerous awards. She is also a Merit Member of Idaho Watercolor Society and Signature Member of Spokane Watercolor Society.

·         Christina has her little sister Cathy to thank for introducing her to watercolors. She took 4 years of art in high school but never thought she would be entering paintings to be seen by the public.

·         Cathy ventured into watercolor 10 years ago. With the support from fellow artists, she has learned to have more control of her paints. Now she is working on relaxing to let her watercolors do what watercolors do naturally!

·         Bobbi believes it's not the subject itself that's important in a painting, but the way subject is interpreted, presenting the viewer with a new way to think about ordinary things, whether those are landscapes, still-life objects or people.

·         Mary turned to her love of watercolors after she retired. Her paintings reflect her affection for the Pacific NW and inspiration from her travels. She has a visual and emotional connection with the art she creates.

A public reception catered by Lumberyard will be held on Friday, May 17 from 4 - 8pm! View art, visit with artists and enjoy delicious bites!
