"Falling" Arlene Towne

Arlene Towne
Lives in Milton Washington 6 months and Yuma Arizona 6 months.
Born in Puyallup, Washington, Graduated from Columbia High school, Richland, Washington and studied art at University of Washington. Legal assistant for City of Richland and City of Puyallup.  Retired and enoying life.  Have painted most of my life.  Shown at several local Galleries and Washington State Fair as well as recently Yuma Art Center..  I have slowly evolved to painting abstract.  The show at Premier Gallery will feature my latest abstracts.

Premier Gallery, a division of Valley Arts United, is Puyallup’s first gallery. It opened in May of 2007. This gallery is located at 210 W. Pioneer in the Puyallup Activity Center. The gallery is a wonderful partnership between VAU and the city of Puyallup. The city owns the building and installed the hardware necessary for hanging the paintings. VAU provides the all-volunteer curator and installation team.

​This popular gallery offers both established artists and new or emerging artists a gallery in which to showcase their work. The artist makes a small donation to VAU when their work is sold. Each artist or group of artists exhibits their work for approximately three months.
The Premier Gallery can accommodate up to 60 paintings or more. It can showcase very large canvases or medium pieces. It also includes a glass showcase for small sculptures, pottery, or miniatures. Several large sculptures can also be shown.
The Puyallup Activity Center welcomes a wide variety of people. The center provides a relaxing and pleasant ambience in which to view the collections on display. Arts Downtown has generously donated two sculptures to the Activity Center to enhance the artful atmosphere.

ARTIST STATEMENT
In my life I have sought places and spaces that intrigue me. I am very taken by the beauty of the real, natural world. Yet when I paint, I prefer the imaginary landscape. Often there is a quality of space that I want to explore—hiddenness, wildness, serenity or surprise. Sometimes pieces of story emerge. Nearly always there is the unexpected. If I can convey something of these feelings to the viewer, I feel I’ve succeeded. "Bonnie Miller"
