This Month at Cascadia Art Museum:

 

July

Gail Wong – Thursday, July 18 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.

We are honored to have Gail Wong as our Art Walk Artist for July. You probably recognize her name as one of the co-organizers for Sketcher Fest Edmonds which is happening July 19, 20 and 21.

She is an architectural illustrator, retired architect and part time Lecturer at the University of Washington. Gail has kept sketchbooks throughout her architectural education and professional career but started travel sketching in 2009. She has been actively involved in Urban Sketchers as a sketcher, then in leadership roles as Seattle Admin, Education Committee member, Workshop instructor and on the Executive Board for Urban Sketchers. She has participated in several Urban Sketching symposiums and has taught many workshops. Her work has been published in many Urban Sketching handbooks and recently co-authored “The Urban Sketching Handbook: Spotlight on Nature” (2022) with friend and fellow sketcher Virginia Hein.

Stop by and see Gail’s work on display during July. Join us on Thursday, July 18 between 5 – 8 pm to see her demonstrate watercolor techniques. We’ll have watercolor paper and paint so you can try it for yourself.

We will also offer Ambassador-led tours of our current exhibitions. Discover how artists express attitudes and perspectives through their art.

Admission is free from 5:00 – 8:00pm on Third Thursdays for Art Walk Edmonds.
