January 28, 2011 · 3:28 PM
Kenmore resident Joan Wittler will be showing selected new works at Bellevue’s Winters House from Feb. 1–28. The show’s theme is “Wonders and Wanderers of the Northwest” with oil on canvas works.
“We have so much beauty here in the Pacific Northwest,” Wittler said, “both large-scale and small-scale. I try to make the beauty of the everyday accessible in my paintings, whether it is a sailboat making for port at sunset or a heron taking flight from the marshes.”
Wittler’s work has drawn praise from members of the local arts community.
“Joan is one of our fresh, up-and-coming faces,” noted Ted Pankowski, a local artist and member of the Eastside Association of Fine Arts. “Her works capture her love of the creative process which she shares in her rendering of beautiful, bold images. Winters House, with its proximity to the Mercer Slough nature park is a wonderful venue for this show.”
Winters House, located at 2102 Bellevue Way SE, is also home to the Bellevue Historical Society. The exhibition may be viewed during Winters’ House regular hours, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
