“THE GALLERY AQUATIC”

Gallery reception: June 2, during Art Walk, 6pm – 9pm
Time to jump into the deep end… of the tide pool! This month at FCF, local artists, Lorna Libert and Lynn Young explore the world under the waves with their newest creations. Lynn magically transforms gourds with carving, and color into a work of wonder while Lorna wows us with watery whimsy.

Lynn has been a resident of the Pacific Northwest for almost 40 years. She has dabbled in art for most of her life, and became a gourd artist in the mid-1990s while living on Lummi Island. Her designs are inspired by the beauty of the Northwest, and most particularly by the Salish Sea and all its inhabitants. Kayaking in its waters has made her vividly aware of the movement of water, and the life that abounds within it, as reflected in her use of white lines and shapes to depict the currents and eddies, as well as the multitude of living organisms.
