This upcoming month, Port Ludlow Art League will feature the work of the abstract critique group in their new art exhibit: “Creating During COVID.”
During the pandemic, members of the abstract critique group have had virtual meetings every week for critique and camaraderie. The result of their abstract work will be on display at the Sound Community Bank in Port Ludlow during the month of May.
The participating artists include Ann Bernard, JoAnna Caro, Ann Gagnier, Joie Hyde, Georganne Muse, Carol Nielsen, Pamela Raine, Diane Walker, and Patricia Webber.
The “Creating During COVID” exhibit will also be online at www.portludlowart.org.
The League’s Jeweler of the Month is Mary Lynn Laker, designer of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets in a wide variety of styles and materials. Silver, bronze, gems, felt, crystals, and stones – no two of her creations are alike. She has fashioned crows, fish, Buddhas, circles, squares, and more into a delightful collection of jewelry.
Throughout May, Laker’s artwork will be on display at the Port Ludlow Art League Gallery.
In May, Port Ludlow Art League will also be hosting an abstract painting raffle. The abstract critique group recently collaborated on an art project, circulating two 24-inch-by-18-inch canvases from artist to artist.
Creating unique abstract paintings using acrylics and collage, the group has donated the finished products to the Port Ludlow Art League Scholarship Fund.
The paintings will be raffled off and the winning tickets will be selected on Monday, May 31. Raffle tickets, available for purchase at the Port Ludlow Art League Gallery, are $5 for one ticket and $10 for three tickets.
The scholarship fund benefits local graduating seniors.
Located next to the Sound Community Bank at the corner of Oak Bay Road and Osprey Ridge Drive in Port Ludlow, the Port Ludlow Art League Gallery is open from noon to 4 p.m. every Thursday and Friday.
