A labor of love from/for our community

The Netshed show is now open from Thurs, Nov 12, 2015 10:00am through Sun, Jan 17, 2016 5:00pm at the Harbor History Museum in Gig Harbor. This show has 70 works from local artists (5 of them are mine) in all mediums including, paint, pencil, pens pastel, printmaking, photography.. to name a few. The concept was Anne knapp (co-facilitator of the PAL plein air group summer 2014) and myidea. we wanted to incorporate the historical Netsheds of Gig Harbor (one of the largest concentrations of surviving structures in one area) with the moderna reflections of local artists who interepret these buildings through todays perspective. Anne and I decided to create many plein air events through our summer long plein air program. She also created an event where a local sighseeing boat too the artists around the harbor to allow access for photographic oppertunities for those who prefered to work in studio in the winter months. Our goal was to bring the past history into the present appreciation and display the work from both views. We though of it as a show created by the community for the community. We hope that you will come enjoy this show and support us in celebration these highly respected landmarks (a huge piece of Gig Harbor's heritage) as reintroduced through the eyes of the locally talented artists with these loving creations  (See for more info on the events)
