A Ladies of the Island Collection
September 7 – October 2, 2018
Scott Milo Gallery presents the exhibition “I Am From” with Ladies of the Island, a group of 10 female artists from Camano Island. The theme is loosely based on a poem titled “Where I’m From” written by Kentucky’s 2015-2016 poet laureate, George Ella Lyon. Imitating Ms. Lyon’s approach, each artist wrote a poem as a powerful exercise for exploring her life and art.
Artists exhibiting work in the show are: jewelry from Indy Behrendt, ceramics from Marguerite Goff, pastels by Janet Hamilton, watercolors by Liz Hamlin, photo encaustics by Kathy Hastings, watercolors by Lynne Nielsen, textile art by Patricia Resseguie, photographs by Jackie Roberts, oils by Susan Cohen Thompson and mixed media by Renate Trapkowski. The artists will also feature poetry and related writings.
Reception with the artists Friday, September 7 at 6 - 9pm.
