The city of Enumclaw’s Gallery 2009 presents Landscapes, Fruit and Whatnot by Lori Twiggs. The exhibit begins today, Wednesday, and runs through Sept. 1 at City Hall council chambers, 1339 Griffin Ave.

Twiggs is an Enumclaw artist who has paid her dues, said Enumclaw Cultural Programs Manager Gary LaTurner.

“Twiggs’ paintings are creative, strong, aesthetically pleasing, evocative, emotionally expressive, stylistically competent, and professionally presented to viewers at Gallery 2009,” he said.

In a press release from the city, Twiggs talks about her work.

“I’ve always been intrigued by the work of Monet, Pissarro and other master impressionists,” she said. “Their paintings inspire me to work with looser brush strokes and less detail. It seems, however, that drama is the key player for me. Over time, I have developed an obsessive need to push the limit in light and shadow and experiment with color and temperature for a vivid overall effect.

“I now focus on the personality and character of a painting and challenge myself to put a theatrical spin on ordinary subjects. My work is ever changing. As stated by Bruce Barton, ‘When you are through changing, you are through.’”

A public reception to meet the artist and view her work is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at City Hall.

Artists have been selected by the Enumclaw Arts Commission for an exhibit at City Hall in Gallery 2009. The year’s schedule includes Peter Chafouleas in September, Jean Stanley in October, an equestrian exhibit in November, and Ken and Lydia Strange in December.

Regular hours for the exhibition space are 8 a. m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Enumclaw City Hall is closed on national holidays. The gallery is closed to the public on Tuesdays for municipal court proceedings.
