The multi-medium, 67th Annual Juried Art Exhibit “Brush Strokes from the Soul” by Seattle CoArts opened April 17 at the Mercer Gallery at the Community and Event Center, and runs through June 2.

Seattle CoArts, a group of 150 local artists with a long history in the Northwest of working with many mediums and a wide expanse of experience ranging from emerging novices to nationally exhibited and published painters, is celebrating its 67th Juried Show.

The theme asked them to delve into their artist souls.

“You will see a broad genre of paintings, including representational, impressionistic and abstract,” said Janice Patterson, this year’s show chair. “Our artists work in oils, acrylics, pastels, colored pencil and watercolor. In choosing a theme this year, I wanted to challenge our members to dig deep and express their hunger for creative truth.”

Denise Cole of Cole Gallery in Edmonds, is this year’s show juror. She has selected 60 varied pieces from the 95 submitted from 51 artists to showcase the group’s talent.

The opening reception and awards presentation for “Brush Strokes from the Soul” will be held from 2-4 p.m. on April 22 at the Mercer Gallery. Meet the artists and enjoy refreshments. All artwork will be for sale with a silent auction during the reception of smaller art pieces donated by the participating artists.
