Award-winning photography on display at City Hall through September 18

From lighthouses to lakes, wildflowers to waterfalls – photographer Shirley Haley has a way of capturing life in the Pacific Northwest. Her award-winning photography is on display at City Hall through Sept 18.

A Big Lake, Wash., resident, Haley primarily photographs nature scenes in the Pacific Northwest. Her photos have been published in a long list of publications and have shipped across the globe, including Sweden to Nova Scotia, Switzerland, Alaska and North Carolina. Haley’s photographs have won several awards including the top award at Sequim Arts in 2007. One of her tulip prints was featured on the Skagit Art Association postcard for advertising in 2008.

Haley is also a writer, experienced mountain hiker and backpacker and professional music teacher. Haley is past president of the Skagit Art Association and will be president again this year. She is a member of the Washington State Music Teachers association and is a national and state-certified teacher. She is also a member of the North America Nature Photography Association.

The City Hall Art Gallery, located on the second floor, is at 33325 8th Ave S. The gallery is open to the public 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

The Federal Way Arts Commission sponsored the art exhibit. The arts commission is a 12-member group that advises the City Council on all areas of the arts, including the fine arts, literary, performing, visual and cultural. The commission also oversees two public art galleries (City Hall and Dumas Bay Centre), and juries new shows there quarterly.
