Art open house planned at school


School officials plan an open house Oct. 27, so visitors can see a number of abstract paintings, which were installed last June at Lake Roosevelt Schools, and meet artist Lucinda Palmer.

Palmer painted six large paintings as part of the Washington Arts Commission grant for arts for public buildings.

Palmer, from Portland, Oregon, was selected from a number of applicants to create the paintings, part of a $70,000 grant.

Two paintings were hung in the elementary school cafeteria, two in the junior/senior cafeteria and one in each of the stairwells. The paintings are 5 feet by 9 feet.

Each painting has a thought attached to it.

Visitors that day — the time not decided as yet — will be able to view the paintings and hear Palmer explain what they mean.

The paintings feature two birds or fish. The artist hopes that, in addition to enjoying the art, people will also come to understand and develop the meaning of the paintings.
