September Artist of the Month - Pamela Raine
Much of Pamela's artwork is inspired by her world travels. Recently, Pamela traveled to Japan. From women wearing colorful Kimonos to scantily clad sumo wrestlers, where thousand-year-old temples compete for sunlight with tall skyscrapers, Pamela found that the ancient and the modern harmoniously coexist in Japan.
Pamela explored exquisite gardens as well a wide range of Japanese art, including wood blocks, pottery, ink painting and calligraphy, tie dying fabric, gold leaf screens, bamboo weaving, inlay wood, and origami. Pamela is delighted to share what she learned during her trip. Her exhibit includes original watercolor, acrylic, and pastel paintings, photographs, and mixed media as well as indigo tie dyed fabric, washi paper, and garments from her visit to Japan.
Pamela's exhibit will be on display at the Port Ludlow Sound Community Bank in September.
Jeweler of the Month – Linda Henderson
Linda has always had a keen eye for color and style. Although she enjoys
searching for unique beads, crystals and gemstones, she recently started
experimenting with polymer clay. Manipulating polymer clay to accept any
texture, assume any color, and create any size or shape enables Linda to explore an
infinite variety of designs. Another benefit to using polymer clay it is much more
lightweight than beads and gemstones.
Linda continues to create one-of-a-kind pieces including stunning necklaces as
well as silver earrings and macramé friendship bracelets.
Linda's latest creations will be on display at the Port Ludlow Art Gallery in
September. The Gallery is located at the corner of Oak Bay Road and Osprey
Ridge Drive next to the Sound Community Bank.
