Congratulations to the People’s Choice winner of the PNA’s Northwest Fine Arts Competition: Ellen Hamm with Highland Light 2. 

Here’s what Ellen has to say about her art:

“The simplicity and complexity of our environment has always captivated and inspired me. My attention to pattern and details has influenced my art in the past and present. Working in series, I paint in several styles and genres.

I am fascinated by seeing images in my surroundings and use that awareness to develop my paintings. The imagery sits between abstraction and realism. These explorations evoke places, forms and perceptions.

In response to my work, I appeal to the viewer to make their own discoveries and revelations.”

See more of Ellen’s work on her website and on Instagram.

Save the date for our next Phinney Center Gallery Show: The PNA Member & Volunteer Show, July 11-August 16, with the opening reception on Friday, July 12, 7-9 pm.
