South King County Cultural Coalition Thu, 30 Oct 2014 06:48:42 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Artwork of Julie Scandora Thu, 30 Oct 2014 06:48:42 +0000 scandora-birdNormandy Park City Hall Gallery
Now through 11/30/2014

The passionate, bold colors of oil bars are Julie Scandora’s favorite medium. Originally developed for putting highlights on oil paintings, Scandora applies oil bars to gessoed boards, moving the paint around with gloved fingers, putting her whole body into the work. That energy permeates the works, complementing the wild colors and giving life to the painting.

There will be a reception for the artist on Thursday, November 13, from 7-9 PM. Otherwise, visitors to City Hall can view the exhibit Monday through Thursday, 7 AM – 5:30 PM. Normandy Park City Hall is located at 801 SW 174th Street in Normandy Park.
