Gallery North’s June Exhibit, “Capturing Calm,” Features Paintings by Northwest Artist Leah Rene Welch
This June Gallery North is pleased to present “Capturing Calm” featuring the paintings of resident artist Leah Rene Welch. Leah is best known for her vibrant, heavily textured paintings and her use of unconventional tools. The show will include many of Leah’s paintings inspired by our brilliant Pacific Northwest scenery and wonderfully interpreted in oil and pastel.
“I am inspired by the natural world. My interpretations are offered as reminders to others to be aware of the blessings of the beauty of the planet we all share.” –Leah Rene Welch
During the month of June there will be a silent auction for one of Leah’s paintings with the entire amount going to Washington Kids In Transition. Washington Kids In Transition is a nonprofit organization providing basic necessities to homeless students in South Snohomish County.
The public is invited to meet Leah Rene Welch at her artist’s reception on Saturday, June 8th from 1-4 p.m. at Gallery North. Refreshments will be served, and Leah will be available to discuss her paintings and technique. Leah will also be present at Gallery North during Art Walk on Thursday, June 20th from 5-8 p.m. “Capturing Calm” will be open to the public daily through June 30th.
