A mixed media art show by Terri Thompson of
Union is on display in the Office of Lt. Governor Brad Owen
As an artist, photographer, environmental
activist, teacher, mother of three, and grandmother of seven,
Thompson wears many hats, made evident in the diversity of her
artwork. Her pieces include both acrylic and pastel paintings,
mixed media work and collage.
There are several scenes from the Pacific Northwest,
including a cowboy at the Puyallup Fair rodeo and fishermen on
the Skokomish River.
“My studio has no walls,” she
said. “The beautiful Pacific Northwest, adorn in rich colors,
diverse shapes and textures makes no place on earth as special
to produce art.”
Her pieces range in nature from still lifes to
landscapes, conveying a distinct and unique Pacific Northwestern
style cultivated by her experience living in Mason County and as
a graduate of the Evergreen State College.
Chaired by Linda
Owen, wife of the lieutenant governor, the Lt. Governor’s Art
Council selects Washington artists for its displays and changes
the selections quarterly.
The Office of the
Lieutenant Governor is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
It is located in Room 220 of the Legislative Building (State
Capitol), 416 Sid Snyder Avenue S.W. in Olympia.
