October Artists of the Month – Port Ludlow Art League Challenge
Each year, the Port Ludlow Art League challenges their members to create artwork in response to a theme. This year’s theme is the Art of Perspective. Perspective can be the art of drawing objects on a 2D surface to give the impression of a 3D image, such as DaVinci’s Last Supper, or simply a different way of looking at things. Participating artists met the challenge by creating artwork using their medium of choice, including watercolor, pastels, oils, pottery, acrylics, mixed media, fabric, clay, and photography.

Jeweler of the Month – Mary Lynn Laker
When it comes to creating jewelry, Mary Lynn continues to experiment with new creations. Initially, she worked mostly with silver and copper, but over time added stone and beads. As Jeweler of the Month, Mary Lynn crafted a collection of delicate chain, gems, and Precious Metal Clay (PMC). PMC consists of very small particles of metal such as silver, gold, bronze, or copper mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewelry. When baked in a kiln, the binder burns away, leaving the pure sintered metal.
Mary Lynn’s jewelry will be on display at the Port Ludlow Art Gallery in October. The Gallery is located at the corner of Oak Bay Road and Osprey Ridge Drive next to the Sound Community Bank.
