Stephanie Twigg’s watercolors-on-location featured at Dumas Bay exhibit

Before retiring in 2007, local artist Stephanie Twigg had little time for drawing and watercolor painting. Since that time, though, she’s been happy to focus more on creating the art she loves, such as painting on-site. Some of her favorite locations include the Northwest, the Southwest, Mexico and last winter in New England.

From Oct. 6, 2010, through Jan. 5, 2011, the public is invited to a free exhibit of Twigg’s work at Dumas Bay Centre’s Knutzen Family Theatre, 3200 SW Dash Point Rd. Presented by the Federal Way Arts Commission, the exhibit runs 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and additional hours when the theatre is open for a show.

In addition to traditional landscapes, Twigg also enjoys painting the more gritty and industrial urban landscapes. “I feel urban subjects have their own beauty, though they are often aging and neglected,” Twigg said.

The City of Federal Way Arts Commission is sponsoring nine art exhibits in 2010. Displayed at both City Hall and Dumas Bay Centre, the exhibits feature local artists and are free and open to the public.
