The city of Enumclaw and 4Culture of King County will present the photographic images of Mary Waskul.

The display will be in Gallery 2017, housed in council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. Her showing, entitled “Feelings,” begins Sept. 7 and runs through Oct. 3.

“Mary has a great eye for composition and displays sensitivity to people, places and things,” states a press release announcing the Gallery 2017 show.

In a prepared artist’s statement, Waskul explains her art: “I am a purist and never manipulate my images other than for size. I shoot with nothing larger than a 200 mm lens and believe that if I take the time to get to know and understand my subjects, I will be accepted and allowed to come close enough to truly feel them and who they are in their natural environment. This “Feeling” is what I hope comes through to my viewers.

Hours for Gallery 2017 are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Artists interested in showing in Gallery 2018 can now submit a request to glaturner@ci.enumclaw.wa.us.
