Hawk Merlin Studios hosts artist Janet Rothermel

Hawk Merlin Studios, an art gallery in Stevenson, is presenting northwest landscape artist Janet Rothermel. The show will be available for viewing Sept. 29-30 (opening weekend), Oct. 14 and Nov. 10-11, and by appointment. The gallery will be open from noon to 7 p.m.

An artist reception will be held Sept. 30 from 4-6 p.m.

“Janet’s new landscape paintings include soft pastels on sanded paper, acrylic on birch panel, and acrylic on canvas,” said a press release.

“Landscapes and the recurring road theme symbolize routes to a larger world where the details of my everyday life are put into their ‘proper place,’” wrote Rothermel in a press release. “I use color and line to emphasize and exaggerate for visual impact. Time spent in search of photographs to reference for my painting — and then the act of painting those images — brings a kind of clarity to my life, and a window through which I’ve found a personally spiritual place.”

Hawk Merlin Studios was founded in 2014 by owner David Bunker, and is located at 113 SW Russell Ave., Stevenson. For more information, contact Bunker at david@hawkmerlinstudios.com or 509-427-4747.
