11th Annual Onyx Fine Arts Exhibition

 

Over the weekend, I attended the opening of the Onyx Fine Arts Exhibition, held at the Jacob Lawrence Gallery, at the University of Washington School of Art + Art History + Design.  A wide variety of work, by amazing and very talented artists, is on exhibit there.  Just a few of the artists were Earnest Thomas, Carletta Carrington Wilson, Lisa Brown, Eric Salisbury, Danie Allinice, Pamelagrace Beatty, Orenda Ayashe, Jay Taylor, Robert Horton, and many, many others.  The exhibit continues until September 4 and is a fabulous investment of your time and effort!

There was a raffle for several beautiful works of art, one of which I wanted so much that I put six tickets in the basket (this piece by Al Doggett).  I did not win it; however, I am very happy for the lady who won that artwork for she loved it as much as I did, and was thrilled to receive it.

  3. What a wonderous collection of photos you put together dear Shari. I’m immediately loving ALL of your blog work. Not just the photos but your thoughts on what you have documented and the angle you arrive from regarding the preciousness of Life. There is an Angel in you, meant to share these gifts with all of us. Something about your photos and your words hits a beautiful everlasting chord. Please continue to do what you do…until you’re 120!! <3 Orenda :)
