Reception set for Port Ludlow artist of the month

PORT LUDLOW — The Port Ludlow Art League will host a reception for its artist of the month, Shirley Bomgaars, on Wednesday.

Bomgaars’ show, “Go Big or Go Small,” is at the Sound Community Bank at the corner of Oak Bay Road and Osprey Ridge Drive in Port Ludlow, and online at www.portludlowart.org.

The reception will be from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday in the bank’s lobby and from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Port Ludlow Art League Gallery next door. Beginning this month, the gallery’s hours have been adjusted to noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

Bomgaars paints both large canvases and small watercolors, using traditional light and the more challenging black canvases on which to paint.

The group’s jeweler of the month is Georganne Muse, who incorporates semi-precious stones she has collected over many years into her artisan wire jewelry.

During April, Georganne’s Pacific Northwest jewelry collection will be on display at the Port Ludlow Art Gallery and at the Sound Community Bank, as well as online at www.portludlowart.org.

The Port Ludlow Art League is putting on a show of abstract art that illustrates a broad spectrum of colors, techniques, mediums and expressions.

The exhibit, which is up through April, is at the Bay Club at 120 Spinnaker Lane in Port Ludlow.

This is the group’s fourth annual art exhibit. Exhibiting artists include Ann Bernard, JoAnna Caro, Ann Gagnier, Gail Larson, Georganne Muse, Carol Nielsen, Lucrezia Cuen Paxson, Pamela Raine, Diane Walker, Patricia Webber and Terri Wolf.

Melinie Perry will speak at the Port Ludlow Art League’s April 19 meeting.

The program meeting is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Port Ludlow Beach Club at 121 Marina View Drive in Port Ludlow.

Guests are welcome to attend the meeting for a $5 fee.

From birds and plants to landscapes and archaeological remains, Perry’s artwork portrays the breathtaking scenery of the Hawaiian Islands.

“Her paintings emphasize the need to preserve Hawaii’s flora and fauna that are threatened by tourism,” organizers said.

She will share her process of creating realistic paintings that embrace the drama and contrast between light and shadows. She’ll also share cautionary tales on how to succeed as an artist in a business-oriented world.
