Award-winning watercolorist Annie Ferder opens her July show, East Meets West, at Tumalo Art Co. July 3, from 4-8pm, during the First Friday Gallery Walk, bringing together new and old interests. A recent commission to paint a ranch corral complete with cowboy chaps and ropes, piqued Annie’s interest in painting still life’s with a western flavor, while pagodas, exotic flowers and koi focus on eastern themes.
Applying numerous layers of watercolor pigment to create luminous colors, with exquisitely designed lines and shapes and extraordinary attention to detail, bring her paintings to life. Best known for her lush florals, Annie has been published twice in International Artists magazine in conjunction with awards earned through their Flowers and Gardens competitions.
