Green Lake Views Featured in Local Art Gallery

March 11, 2015|Posted in: Green Lake, Green Lake Park, Nearby Neighborhoods, Queen Anne

We all know that Green Lake is one of the most picturesque places in Seattle, and it is also the source of much inspiration for local artists. Viewers can now experience the beautiful views of this iconic location through the eyes of an artist. The exhibition Arboreality features Green Lake’s trees and water views in paintings by Christine Gedye.

Aboreality is on display from now through March 29th at the Fountainhead Gallery at 625 West McGraw Street.

Artist Christine Gedye is a local Green Lake resident. She describes her vision for her art in her artist statement: “The inspiration for my work comes from the landscapes of my everyday life: the Seattle parks that are my havens, the lakes and fields that take me back to my childhood in Minnesota, the mountains that put me in my place. But the real subjects of my paintings are light and atmosphere—those exquisite moments of fleeting illumination that fill me with renewed awe for familiar terrain. Because modern urban life is hectic, stressful and noisy, I seek to create paintings that deliver an antidote: landscapes that convey harmony and serenity, paintings that inspire appreciation for the moment.”

Arboreality showcases some of Green Lake’s most famous views and trees you might recognize from various locations around the loop. See how Gedye interprets these pieces of nature through her paintings at Fountainhead Gallery.

    Thank you for sharing this post. We live in Green Lake and have been looking for a painting of the lake from a local artist for quite some time. We visited the Fountainhead Gallery this past weekend and ended up buying one of her pieces.
