Featured Exhibit

Free birds 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.

The Gallery’s other featured exhibit is Lawrence Pitre’s three-dimensional art.

The Gallery is located at 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien. The exhibit runs through August 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.

According to Lawrence, ”Based on my experiences each installation starts with an aging process and is filtered with optimism and passion. The materials used are hand selected with themes drawn on current and/or past occurrences. The colors within the pallet are lustrous, radiant and saturated, creating a cozy yet warm environment.

“I use textured paper to create illusions, which provide emphasis, rhythm and contrast. My usage of lines varies in each process giving my audiences a stable yet dramatic feel by defying gravity.”

In addition, Artists United artists Nancy Bogni and Nancy Fulton are showing in the inner gallery in July.  They are both accomplished watercolorists and oil and acrylic painters and feature “Scenes from Travel.“ Long time members of Artists United they both belong to Washington Women Painters, and have shown in many venues through Washington.  Nancy will also be teaching watercolor painting this summer at the Gallery.

Fine-art jewelry is also featured.

The Gallery is open Wednesdays through Saturdays, noon-6 p.m. and Sundays, noon-4 p.m. It is closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
