Reflections on where I've been
and how far I've come.
Karin Anderson, Port Angeles native and long time member of the Blue Whole Gallery, is the featured artist for the month of February. "Inspired!" is the title of this show, highlighting her mixed media paintings and three dimensional assemblage pieces in the front windows of the Gallery. Influenced by the surroundings here on the Olympic Peninsula and encouraged by fellow artists at the Blue Whole, this show reflects how far she has come as an artist in the past 12 years. Upon her husband's retirement this spring, the Andersons will leave the Northwest for Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her colorful multifaceted, award winning art will continue on display thru February 28th.
Members of the Blue Whole Gallery invite everyone in the community to enjoy the opening of Karin's final exhibit on First Friday February 3, from 5-8 pm. Karin's style is colorful, fun and eclectic as seen below.
