The city of Enumclaw and guest curator Jenni Minnis will present a retrospective exhibition featuring the artwork of Zelma Nachtsheim.

Nachtsheim, who lived on the Enumclaw Plateau for 65 years, died Sept. 22, 2015, at the age of 93.

Her art will be on display Feb. 4 through March 1 in Gallery 2015, located in council chambers at Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. Gallery 2016 is open weekdays, except Tuesday.

Minnis went to the city with a proposal to display her grandmother’s artwork, a request that was approved by the Enumclaw Arts Commission.

Minnis wrote that her grandmother “loved to teach, inspire and create. She mostly painted oil on canvas from photos she had taken on her travels or images she saw such as the roses in her garden. She also loved the scene of the oceans or forest with cabins and churches amongst the trees.”

Nachtsheim taught ceramics for more than 20 years in the basement of her farm house at the foot of Mount Peak.

Call to Artists

The city of Enumclaw is calling for artists to exhibit original two-dimensional artwork in Gallery 2016 and, additionally, filling the display case in the City Hall lobby.

Anyone interested in a gallery showing or a display in the case is urged to email Gary LaTurner, the city’s cultural arts director, at glaturner@ci.enumclaw.wa.us.

The city also is calling for artist vendors who would like to participate in Whistle-Stop Art Fair 2016.

Space rental $100 for the two-day event, scheduled for June 25 and 26.
