Opening: Mountlake Terrace show features Sutherland work

Artist Hal Sutherland went from drawing at Walt Disney Studios for such films as “Sleeping Beauty” to painting mostly equine scenes.

Throughout his lengthy career, Sutherland amassed quite a collection of work, some of which will be on display as the Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission presents the “Hal Sutherland Exhibit.”

The exhibit runs through Nov. 30 at Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W., Mountlake Terrace.

Sutherland’s fascination with horses led to his success early on when, as a child, he would watch horse-drawn carriages go past his home. He developed an uncanny ability to sketch the creatures, and that landed him among the select group of animators at Disney Studios, where in 1954 he worked on “Sleeping Beauty.”

He went on to become an Emmy-winning television producer and director, working on such shows as “Fat Albert the Cosby Kids” and the first 20 episodes of “Star Trek: The Animated Series.”

His full-time painting career began in 1974 when he moved his family to Washington. Many of his paintings fulfill a passionate dream to be riding on a wiry mustang, galloping across vast prairies. His works often visit the many ways in which horses have been featured in the nation’s history. Sutherland’s work has been featured in several national magazines and a PBS documentary special.

“Season’s Feasting”: A new exhibit at BookWORKS Gallery in Marsyville features paintings and other artwork from local artists.

A free public reception to recognize these many local artists will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday at BookWORKS, 1510 Third St., Marysville.

The exhibit will features lots of food-themed art that either literally pictures food or figuratively implies it. For instance, Gene Cyrus’ watercolor “Bringing in the Bounty” depicts a tractor in a field, Alana Riveira delivers gourd art and Monica Yantis has produced a large oil entitled “Glass and Grapes.”

Other artists represented are Gretchen Lindquist, Coleen Allen, Cathy Clark, Janet Myer, Mary Edwards, Joan Grout, Art Dujardin, Saundra Knapp, Diane Hill, Evie Scribner and Fumiko Winder.

BookWORKS has been open for about nine years. The gallery represents local artists and only presents originals. Most of the art is for sale.
