Northwest Light: Paintings by Beth Fishman

NOVEMBER 6, 2019 | WEBSITE SUBMITTED

 

Beth Fishman's watercolors render the beauty of our Northwest home in deft brushstrokes and vibrant colors. She captures those moments that make us pause: slanting sunlight on a docked sailboat, the Great Wheel glimpsed through shadowy skyscrapers, fall colors on a downtown tree. Her skillful and fresh painting style imbues our local landscape with movement and life.

Opening Reception:
Wednesday, November 6th
5 pm – 8 pm

Join us for refreshments and meet the artist!
