Gallery 2017 presents: Pat Parsons and Lisa Parsons

PParsons Painting

 Pat and Lisa Parsons are a great art team, creating exciting and beautiful work in two totally different media. Pat Parsons, Lisa’s mom, is an established painter primarily of landscapes and natural forms. Her work and her interest in art inspired her daughter to see the world in a creative way. Lisa has earned a credible reputation in the arts and in preservation of nature. For this show they have each selected a collection of artworks to show their individual skills. 

Pat Parsons is an accomplished fine artist who has exhibited paintings at the prestigious Frye Art Museum in Seattle. She has won many awards for her work over the years 

"For Pat Parsons, painting is more than just putting form to a subject on canvas. It’s about exploration, discovery, and the joy of creation. Every subject, time of day, landscape, or figure has its own unique characteristics. The fine detailed look that you develop as an artist helps you see more than just the obvious. You discover what's below the surface, what facets make up a particular subject, what colors jump out, or what subtlety captures your attention." 

Lisa Parsons was inspired by her mom’s philosophy and also pursued the arts. Lisa found photography to be her preferred medium. Lisa’s mother introduced her to the arts as well as the outdoors early in life. Those two things are an inherent part of who she is. Lisa found that teaming up to show their work was a great opportunity to connect.
