July Spotlight Exhibits

Art & Soul Gallery
Colors of the Pacific Northwest, Watermedia Paintings by Pam Haunschild

Pam Haunschild, Crane Dance, Acrylic

“Have you ever seen a bright scarlet red mountain? Have you seen sandhill cranes with magenta, gold, teal, and purple feathers? You will in my paintings. My palette is actually quite limited, only four or five colors pulled from personal photos of beautiful Northwest locations. I then mix the rest of the colors from these few, which creates a sense of harmony in the work. The colors serve to express light, shape, and expanses of quiet and calmness. Come see a colorful interpretation of our beautiful Pacific Northwest landscapes and wildlife.” – Pam Haunschild

On July 2, during First Friday, Pam will demonstrate and answer questions about her work. Wine and chocolates will be served.
