Art show at Creston library nearly over

Web Lead

The newest Art in the Library show closes on June 11, and is called Carving and Photography, presenting the works of three artists.

Photography: Laurie Boehmer was born and raised in Creston, and started painting at an early age under the direction of her mother, Chris Herchmer. As well as painting, Boehmer has turned her talents to photography and this show represents scenes of the valley

Photography: Alex King is drawn to scenes that are interesting, not necessarily beautiful in the traditional sense. She enjoys the challenge of low-tech photography where the images are not digitally altered.

Carving: Michael Price is a North Coast native artist who started carving at a very young age. His carvings are done with meticulous accuracy and attention to detail, with a muted palette that respects the Kwakiutl tradition. He carves mostly in red and yellow cedar from old growth trees in the Pacific Northwest.
