Port Ludlow Art League hosts exhibits

PORT LUDLOW — The Port Ludlow Art League’s artist of the month for September is Ludlow artist Pamela Rainel.

The group’s jeweler of the month is Linda Henderson.

Both will be feted at an artist reception from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Sound Community Bank lobby and The Gallery.

Admission is free at both the bank lobby and gallery, which are at Osprey Ridge Drive and Oak Bay Road.

The bank reception will be from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the gallery reception will run from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Much of Rainel’s artwork is inspired by her world travels. Recently, she traveled to Japan and found that the ancient and the modern harmoniously coexist in Japan.

She 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 and will 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.

Henderson creates one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces that include necklaces, silver earrings and macramé friendship bracelets.

In addition to using 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 her to explore an infinite variety of designs.

Another benefit to using polymer clay is that it is much more lightweight than beads and gemstones.
