Free birds will dance across canvasses among fanciful blossoms, trees and landscapes during Burien Arts Gallery’s July exhibit.
Featured artist Debbie Bianchi creates the whimsical scenes with acrylic paint, paper, charcoal and pastel.
Meet Debbie at the Gallery’s Artist’s Reception, Friday, July 10, 5-8 p.m. The Gallery is located at 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien. The exhibit runs July 1-Aug. 2.
According to Debbie, “My art is my search for and longing for beauty in the ordinary and mundane. Almost anything can be inspiring, from the wind in the trees, to the birds hopping around gathering food, to the light reflecting off the water day or night.”
Debbie says her inspiration began by sewing clothes from vintage clothing and other textiles.
“There was such satisfaction of taking something obsolete and creating something new and fresh,” Debbie declares.
From working with vintage textiles, her technique has evolved into creating low-relief pieces that straddle trompe-l’oeil painting and assemblages.More ›
