Opening night of the November Art Walk on Friday, Nov. 1, will include the premiere of “Poetic Moon,” new works by Agnes Lee at Clarke & Clarke Art + Artifacts on Mercer Island.

On the first Friday of each month, Mercer Island features an art walk, where businesses host art and serve light refreshments in the evening. The event is 5 p.m.-8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 1, and Clarke & Clarke will host another event noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Lee is the recent Ballot winner and also winner of honorable mention for Favorite Artist in the Women Painters of Washington exhibition “The Language of Blue” at the Seattle Columbia Center.

The paintings Lee has created for the premiere of “Poetic Moon” are her tribute to the 50th anniversary of man’s landing on the moon and the symbolism of the moon in Chinese culture: Family reunions, harvest celebrations, prosperity and the symbolism of round shapes as reunited pieces. Thoughtful poetry, elegant calligraphy and a range of subtle to bold colors appear on canvas, a press release said of Lee’s work.

Each painting has a poem, in calligraphic form, embedded in the artwork creating more symbolism in each piece. Lee hand writes a translation of the poem on the back of each canvas.
