New artists featured at the Lake Wilderness Lodge Art Exhibition gallery
The City of Maple Valley is welcoming three new artists to the Lake Wilderness Lodge Art Exhibition. Sponsored by the city’s Public Arts Commission, the gallery now features the artwork of Clarice Keegan, Janet Rothermel, and Emily Mallory. The public is invited to the exhibition gallery on the second floor of the Lake Wilderness Lodge to view the new artwork.
Clarice Keegan worked with lines. Her quest was to express the lines that she saw and tie them into the emotions of others who see them. Keegan often used mathematical principals, tools, opaque watercolors, and liquid acrylic paints to shape her vision. Although Clarice passed away in November 2018, her daughter, Shanti, continues to share her mother’s artwork.
Janet Rothermel’s studio is located in the historic Ford Building in southeast Portland. She uses landscapes and recurring road themes in her compositions to symbolize routes to a larger world where the details of her life are put into their “proper place.”
Born in Oregon and raised in northern California, Emily Mallory was first introduced to quilling and origami as a teenager. Nature is the inspiration for her art. Her work is realistic but slightly whimsical. Each of her finished pieces can have anywhere from 50 to over 1,000 individual pieces of paper used depending on the design.
Artwork may be viewed at the Lake Wilderness Lodge Art Exhibition, 22500 248th Street, Maple Valley, Monday through Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., and Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. The gallery space is located on the second floor of the lodge.
The Lake Wilderness Lodge Art Exhibition program provides an opportunity for local artists to show case their artwork. Every quarter a group of different artists is featured. Artists working in two dimensional art or custodians of such artwork are invited to apply for the program.
