Ho, Ho, Holidays Sun, 07 Dec 2014 21:36:31 +0000
Normandy Park City Hall Gallery

Now through 12/30/2014
Three well-known local artists – Kelly Lyles, Theresa Neinas and Phil Scroggs – create this unique show to celebrate the season. Holidays are a time of family togetherness, peace and love. But it’s also consumerism, pressures and stress; therefor we commemorate with humour, twisted iconography, and in some cases inserting the fun in dysfunction.
Many of these works were designed as the artists’ personal Christmas and Hanukkah cards, some created together on the same winter night at a linoleum block carving event. Kelly started her tradition by designing and printing 1,000 cards for her own friends, these are her originals (many of the images are also $1 postcards available for sale). And in the spirit of the season all of these artworks are priced as affordable, memorable gifts.
Normandy Park City Hall is located at 801 SW 174th Street, Normandy Park. The exhibition will be on view and open to the public during December, 2014 (Monday through Thursday, 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM).
