Photographer turns to canvas for new show at Bainbridge Public Library

Diane Walker will be the featured artist for the February art exhibit at the Bainbridge Public Library.

The new show is called “Stormy Weather,” and opens with an artist’s reception from 5 to 7 p.m. during the First Friday Art Walk on Friday, Feb. 7. “Tempest Tossed” and a description of Diane’s exhibit.

Walker, who is a well-known photographer, started painting seven years ago.

She explains her process: “A big part of the pleasure of this work is that I don’t usually know what I’m going to paint until I paint it. Sometimes the result is visually satisfying; more often it’s not — but that’s the joy of working with acrylics: I can just keep painting over what I’ve done until it evolves into something that pleases me.

“Though some of my paintings are more realistic than others, I’ve noticed that no matter where I start on the canvas almost all of them seem to evolve either into clouds and rain or boats and water — probably not surprising, given that I’ve lived on various islands in the Pacific Northwest for the last 25 years or so.”

Walker’s exhibit will be available for viewing during February and on the library website at www.bainbridgepubliclibrary.org.

A portion of sales proceeds will be donated to the library.
