Peggy Brunton is the featured artist for the December art exhibit at the Bainbridge Public Library.
Brunton’s exhibit, “Christmas and Carousels,” opened during First Friday and will be on display during December.
Brunton received a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Washington and has taught ceramics, painting and art history for Seattle Pacific University. Her work has awards in many prestigious Northwest exhibitions and has been placed in private collections in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, across the USA and throughout the Northwest. Burton’s art has also been chosen to be in permanent collections at Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Henry Gallery, and Seattle Art Museum.
On Bainbridge Island, islanders may have noticed her paintings depicted on Bike for Pie T-shirts for many years.
“Joyful colors, surprising textures and evolving subject matter seems to keep my attention while composing a painting,” Burton said of her artwork. “Every painting is a learning experience and sometimes there is a glimpse of mastering the moment. To have a painting’s approval, loved and enjoyed is a great gift to me.”
Her work is on display in the library’s meeting room and on the library website at www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org.
