City Hall Gallery exhibition offers sneak preview of the 19th annual Kenmore Art Show – June 2nd

KENMORE, Wash.— An exhibit featuring the work of Irina Milton, international award-winning fine-arts painter from Mukilteo known for her lavish interpretations of everyday life, will open Friday, June 2 at the Arts of Kenmore Gallery in Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave. N.E.  

The public is invited to an opening-day reception for “The Art of Irina Milton,” from 6:30-8 p.m. on Friday, June 2 that will include a special presentation by the Ukraine born artist.  The exhibit will remain on display through August 10.
Frequent world travel affords Irina the subject matter to create thought provoking compositions within the realm of realism.

“I am drawn to people in their native costumes and lifestyles, and to the land in which they dwell,” says Milton. “My artist’s eye is most often captured by the simple and private moments of these native people that so often go unnoticed.” 

Irina is the Featured Artist for the 19th Kenmore Art Show.  Her painting of a cat curiously perched amongst pantry shelves was incorporated into the poster design for the annual show, which runs June 21-25 at Bastyr University, 14500 Juanita Dr. NE, Kenmore.

AOK Gallery exhibits are made possible by sustaining support from the City of Kenmore and 4Culture.  The Arts of Kenmore mission is to promote both passive and active arts in the Kenmore community through the annual art show, arts grants to six public schools, and build outreach partnerships.
