Paintings and jewelry on display in June

PORT LUDLOW — The Port Ludlow Art League is highlighting the work of artist Ann Arscott and jeweler Li Ding-Salopek during the month of June.

Arscott uses a wide range of mediums — including oils, pastels, and watercolors — to depict nature with almost life-sized paintings. Her love of Chinese brush painting led her to study at the China Institute in New York City.

Her work has appeared in galleries around the world, including New York, New Jersey and Tokyo, as well as in Washington state. Right now, her paintings are featured at Gallery Nine at 1012 Water St., in Port Townsend.

During June, Arscott’s artwork will be on view at the Sound Community Bank at the corner of Oak Bay Road and Osprey Ridge Drive in Port Ludlow as well as online at www.port ludlowart.org.

Ding-Salopek, silversmith, believes jewelry making is a creative medium to be explored with emotion and passion.

She said she enjoys incorporating new skills and techniques into her designs. For example, she recently developed a method of soldering that creates branches of trees in sterling silver without the use of a cast model.

In addition to silversmithing, she hand grinds jade and other precious minerals into unique shapes for each piece of jewelry.

Ding-Salopek’s jewelry will be on display at the Sound Community Bank, the Port Ludlow Art League Gallery next door, and online at www.portludlowart.org.

Group show

A group art exhibit, Summer Delights, will be exhibited at the Bay Club, 120 Spinnaker Lane in Port Ludlow.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Port Ludlow Art League and will run from June through July.

As an added bonus, Ann Arscott’s stunning artwork will be on display in the Bay Club’s lobby during June and July.
