Out of the Foliage" by Lonnie Flowers,

Gallery North's November 2020 exhibit will be "Creatures Great and Small" by artists Lonni Flowers and Melinda O'Malley.

The two artists have teamed up to create a show featuring animal art with paintings in watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, and unique jewelry and silk scarves along with incredibly creative pottery. Both artists are lifelong animal lovers who approach their art to exhibit that love.

Melinda O'Malley is a ceramic clay artist who is recognized by her functional and beautiful creations, many of which feature both real and mythical creatures. O'Malley's popular dragon teapots are created one scale at a time and finished in a variety of glazes so that each one is a unique work of art. Other animals grace covered dishes, bowls, mugs, and purely decorative sculptures.

"Mother's Day" by Melinda O'Malley

Lonni Flowers has won numerous awards for watercolor, acrylic, and silk painting. Her artwork was dominated from youth by horses, but has evolved to include all types of animals from domestic to African wildlife. Flowers' fascination with color and texture have pushed her to experiment with a variety of mediums and techniques to express the joy of creation. Her silk painting and jewelry making continue that exploration and all of her artwork says, "joy."

She has spent many years passing on that joy by teaching a variety of artistic mediums both publicly and privately.

Because of COVID restrictions, there will be no opening reception for "Creatures Great and Small", however the show will be held available for viewing at Gallery North from Nov. 1-30 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The gallery has taken precautions to protect the public and artists.

Gallery North is located at 401 Main St., Edmonds and is open Tuesdays through Sundays each week. For further information, please visit the Galley North website at, or contact Gallery North at 425-774-0946.
