“Trails” by local artist Mary Janosik continues through July 6 at the city of Enumclaw’s Gallery 2010.
Janosik, is a trail-walking, brush-cutting, mountain-climbing champion who carries a camera to capture the beauty she finds.
According to Gary LaTurner, Enumclaw cultural programs manager, Janosik’s message to the viewer reads like a travelogue to new and exciting destinations.
“I have lived here my whole life,” Janosik noted in a press release. “My parents raised six of us on the backside of Mount Peak. We had lots of fun playing in the woods and exploring the countryside, often on horseback. Life was an adventure just outside the backdoor.”
“I highly recommend experiencing your own surroundings, whether it’s a walk in one of our beautiful state parks close by or a hike in the shadow of our amazing Mount Rainier,” Janosik said. “Take the time to escape to the quiet of the mountains, breathe the fresh air and enjoy awesome sights. In this crazy world there is peace in the simple things, like a walk in the park. It’s not only good for your body, but also good for your soul.”
Gallery 2010 is located in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. 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.
