Stanwood’s Guilded Gallery an artists’ meeting place

A Guilded Gallery in Stanwood is run by its members as a place of fellowship and education, as well as a venue radiating art into the community, said member Sherry Bonnett.

The guild offers classes in water soluble oil, watercolor, pastel, live model drawing, impressionistic acrylic painting as well as glass blowing by Mark Ellinger.

Teacher and guild member Helen Lueken is the featured artist at the gallery through April 21. A reception is set for 5 to 7 p.m. March 28.

Lueken, who teaches pastels, also works in oil and watercolor.

Born in New Mexico, Lueken has been a professional artist for more than four decades. Plein air studies in landscapes and waterscapes draw her interest when weather permits, but she also enjoys the comfort of her studio on the second floor of the log home built by her husband in north Snohomish County, Bonnett said.
