Highlighting the upcoming Puget Sound Bird Fest, the Edmonds Arts Commission announces an exhibit of watercolors by Hung Nguyen in the Edmonds Arts Commission Display Case located at the main entrance of the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main St. Building hours are Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-9 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Hung Nguyen enjoys working with a variety of media, but watercolor is the one he uses the most for his artistic expression. Hung’s work reflects a sense of peace, tranquility and a perfect harmony between humans and nature.
Hung was born in Vietnam and came to the United States in 1975. After studying art and design in college, he went to work for Boeing, KIRO-TV, KING-TV and Walt Disney Internet Group as a designer and illustrator. Currently, he is working as a freelance designer and creating fine art. His artwork is included in private, corporate, and public collections and is represented by galleries throughout the Northwest. In 2004 Hung’s painting of the “Hot Autumn Nites Annual Car Show” was used for the final poster produced by the Edmonds Arts Commission. The original watercolor is part of the City of Edmonds Portable Art Collection.
Puget Sound Bird Fest is September 9-11. The three-day event includes speakers, guided walks, fieldtrips, exhibits and educational activities for children and adults. See www.pugetsoundbirdfest.org for details.
