Saturday the 18th - Tove PisaRelle, Artist

Artist's Reception - Tove PisaRelle
Saturday, October 18th from 5 to 7 pm The Gallery at Norrgard's Optik 17423 139th Ave NE, Woodinville 98072 Complimentary hors d'ouvres + wine tasting with Ray Bloom I'm excited to help my new friend Lisa with her gallery at Norrgard's Optik this weekend. If you're in the area this Saturday night, stop by and see me and meet the artist of the beautiful work you see above! The gallery does NOT charge a commission to display, show or sell art but instead insists that at least 20% (which is usually a minimum commission) of the art sale proceeds is donated to the local Children's Country Home (remember I talked about it here). Isn't that WONDERFUL? Artist Bio: Tove PisaRelle graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from California State University at Long Beach in 2003. She was born and raised in Seattle and currently resides in Kingston on the Kitsap Peninsula. Although her degree focused strongly on the human figure she found her passion in creating landscapes without the human element. Her paintings are derived from her imagination which allows her to fully enjoy the process of painting and her desire to be a part of her finished paintings. Viewers have commented on her work as invoking restful and peaceful feelings as well as the abstract and even a sense of being reminiscent of areas throughout the mid-west and eastern states. Children's Country Home Mission: To enhance the quality of life of medically fragile children by providing 24-hour healthcare services in a loving, family centered home guided by the values of dignity, compassion, sharing and stewardship. Children's Country Home serves as an extension to the child's own family, providing individualized care for each child. We believe that children should be served in the least restrictive setting possible, and make every attempt to provide an atmosphere that is similar to a child's home. The house has bright, colorful rooms, extensive yard and a specialized and caring staff. Families are encouraged to participate in all aspects of their child's care and staff work in conjunction with the family in planning and treatment. Contact Lisa Norrgard at 425.485.2600 or lisanorrgard@yahoo.com for more information.
Leave me a comment if you might stop by (or if you wish you could - so that should be EVERYONE, teehee)! I'd love to see you :)
