"East Sound Memory" by Bellingham artist Mary Froderberg is one of the works exhibited in "Slow Time: Landscapes and Stills," which opens with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at Smith Vallee Gallery, 5742 Gilkey Ave., Edison.
Froderberg is inspired by light, atmosphere and the beauty of the natural world.
Also showing are works by former Bellingham artist Ruthie V., who now lives in Seattle and creates paintings that are strictly from observation. Working with a limited palette, she takes a minimal approach to painting by focusing on line, shape, color and surface.
The exhibit shows through August. Details: 360-766-6230, smithandvallee.com.
