[ARCHIVED] Christine Forcucci Painting Exhibit Opens October 1

Goldfinch

Christine Forcucci creates paintings that are full of life.

When painting her favorite subjects—animals--she is inspired to capture that moment of connection when we understand each other. We recognize the curiosity of a young chickadee, the caution of a rabbit deciding if we’re a threat, the preoccupation of a squirrel getting work done. We feel the warmth of sun on fur, smell the scent of meadow grass, taste salt in the air.

Whether working in oil paints, pastels, charcoal, or watercolor, Christine enjoys an alla prima approach – painting directly, wet into wet, for a fresh look to suit her lively subjects.

Christine’s childhood was spent in forests, fields, and beaches-- looking for, learning about, and drawing animals. This fascination with nature led to a career as a biological oceanographer, science writer and editor, and an artist irresistibly drawn to life. Her jobs took her around the world from Antarctica to New Zealand before she settled in the spectacular Pacific Northwest.

Christine’s artwork is shown at Tsuga Fine Art Gallery in Bothell, WA; has won prizes in juried shows around the Pacific Northwest; and is in private collections across the U.S. and Canada.

The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission oversees the library exhibits as part of its mission to promote cultural events in the community. The show runs through August 31 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 5 p.m.
