Rare Birds & Other Friends
mixed media paintings by Francy Blumhagen
June 1 – 27
Opening Reception
Saturday, June 4th from 5 to 7 pm
During Langley’s First Saturday Art Walk

Francy Blumhagen has been making mixed media paintings, handmade prints, and collages for about 40 years and has shown her work throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Working with handmade papers and acrylic paints, Blumhagen creates layered textured images of birds and wildlife in the Salish Sea region. Each piece is a thoughtful meditation on the animals that surround us, expressed in bold colorful imagery that give us a deeper appreciation of our environment.

She explains: “My inspirations for my work come from the sights and sounds that surround me everyday as I walk my dogs in the hills and forests and beaches of Whidbey Island.“

Her mixed media includes many kinds of pencils, crayons, acrylic paint, metallic powders, ink, and some wax. The collaging is done with paper she has painted on or marked in a variety of ways, and then cut to fit the imagery. They reflect ideas about what she sees — not literal, but nor are they completely abstract.

Francy received her B.F.A. in painting from the University of Washington in 1982 and studied extensively with Jacob Lawrence, Michael Spafford and Norman Lundin. She works in a variety of media, including block printing, woodcut, collage, and wax resist.

Please join us for our Opening Reception on Saturday, June 4th from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with Langley’s First Saturday Art Walk.
