The Edmonds Arts Commission presents an exhibit at the Edmonds Library of oils and pastels by Jane Mayer now through the end of January.
Mayer has been involved in the arts for much of her life beginning with music and turning to visual arts as an adult. After moving to the Seattle area in 2000, her career advanced through the inspiration of fellow artists and through workshops with artists such as Ned Mueller, Dorothy Lampl, Gay Faulkenberry, Bill Hosner and Carolyn Anderson.
From her home in Richmond Beach she draws much of her inspiration from the views of the Olympic Mountains. Working primarily in oils and pastels, Mayer vividly portrays the beauty of the Northwest landscape in a colorful impressionist style. This award-winning artist has had paintings accepted into many juried art shows and has participated in several group and solo exhibits.
Mayer is a member of Oil Painters of America, Pastel Painters of America, Northwest Pastel Society, and Eastside Association of Fine Arts. Her work may be viewed at Semantics Gallery, Edmonds; Afishionado Gallery, Seattle; Kaewyn Gallery, Bothell; and Unique Gallery, Seattle; and online at mayerfineart.com and www.pastel-art.com.
