Art at the Theater

Artist Michelle Waldele-Dick has a show hanging in the reception area of our local Carco Theater, and her oil paintings are a joy to view. Using a classical realist approach to her subjects of landscape and still life, Michelle paints what she knows and loves. Views of the Pacific Northwest, flowers native to the area around us and other subjects are on view through the end of March.

Michelle hails from the well known Gage Academy and presently teaches art to both youth and adults at Arts Umbrella in Bothell, WA. Personally, I am wishing she was teaching right next door at the community center.

There is no admission fee to see her show and mid-month, there will a an artist reception where refreshments will be served and you can meet the artist in person. Save your calendar for Friday, February 19th from 6pm - 8pm. I always liken these events as a great way to soak up a little culture and meet with your mate outside of the four walls you call home. Make it a date night.
