The city of Enumclaw and 4Culture of King County present pastel paintings by local artist Bertha Moore.

Her display, in Enumclaw’s Gallery 2015, is titled “A Dusting of Color.” The exhibit begins Thursday, Dec. 3, and runs through Jan. 5, 2016.

Moore won the first-place award in the 2015 Enumclaw GEMs Juried Miniature Exhibit. She has worked in a variety of media and has exhibited in the Enumclaw gallery in the past.

“I enjoy the challenge of trying various mediums as a way of expressing myself,” Moore said in a prepared statement. “Placing marks on a clean surface and having those marks become an image – fascinating!

“My latest venture has been into the wonder of pastel. The colors, the texture, the vibrancy all comes together in a way that speaks to me. And pastels are the medium I have highlighted in this current show.

“Living in the Pacific Northwest it’s hard not to notice the scenery, the farm animals, the wildlife, and of course the people. What a treasure trove of images to capture and showcase.”

Gallery 2015 is in council chambers of Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. The exhibit is available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If the lights are out in the gallery, it’s because the city is in “thrift mode.” Visitors are welcome to turn the lights on to view the exhibit and off when departing.
