Current Exhibit

Library GalleryThe Lynnwood Arts Commission presents silk painter Karen Leonard. Inspired by nature - especially birds, animals, and the changes of nature - Leonard paints rich, vivid, color-saturated images on silk fabrics with dyes creating canvasses that are fresh, delightful and distinctive. Silk provides an unusual surface for the rapid flow of color and once the brush touches the silk there is no second chance. So although planning is essential, Karen believes embracing both the planned and the accidental is what gives her paintings magic.  Her unique artwork has won awards both locally and nationally and can be viewed at the Lynnwood Library Gallery through October 30th.  Contributed Photo: Rockfish, Karen Leonard
