Join us on August 4 to celebrate the 32 artists that have been chosen for the Late Summer Juried Arts exhibit.

The launch of the exhibit will take place from 6:00-8:00 p.m., where guests will be able to get a first look at the newest pieces. The art includes mediums from painting to photography and will be on display until September 30.

Many of the artists are local and find inspiration in the Pacific Northwest landscape. Brenda Calvert, who was raised and still lives in Lynden, finds beauty all around her. The countryside, mountains, lakes and flowers of Whatcom County serve as muses for her paintings. Brenda describes her acrylic and oil paintings as “colorfully energetic with happy brush strokes.”

Aimee Eggink, an elementary art teacher from Ferndale, has four watercolor paintings in the exhibit. Aimee is inspired by the small moments of beauty in nature and people. She tries to capture the details and colors of her subjects in a natural way.

While the artists are local, many have been influenced by their travels, like Lyz Staman. Lyz calls herself an “observant traveler” and has moved 23 times. Her travels include places such as an island in the western Pacific and a 1,300-year-old village in Germany. Lyz is always armed with a small sketchbook that she draws in daily. She has an oil painting in the exhibit.

Marie-Claire Dole is another artist who has had the opportunity to see the world. Originally from Switzerland, where she graduated from L’Ecole d’art appliqué of La Chaux-de-Fonds where she earned a degree as a professional goldsmith. She has lived in Mt. Vernon since 1985, where she designs jewelry and paints. Marie-Claire describes color as a source of joy and energy for her, which translates to her work. Three of her jewelry pieces and two works with soft pastels will be on display during the Late Summer Juried Exhibit.
