Twelve of Christie Neal Hogue’s recent paintings will be exhibited at a reception on Friday, January 25, 2013 from 4-6pm. The exhibit is on Mercer Island at the office of Dr. Ken McNabb, 3003 Island Crest Way, Suite 2.
The series “Mercer Island Hidden Walks” is about her experiences painting en plein air on the island. All were done on location in North Mercerdale Hillside Park during the summer of 2012. Many sunny days created the wonderful effects of dappled light.
Christie is a Mercer Island artist who has been painting for more than ten years. A graphic designer by training and profession, she uses that experience to influence the way she sees and paints the outdoors. She currently studies at the Gage Academy with Susan Bari Price, Charles Emerson, Michael Lane, Juliette Aristides, and Geoff Flack. Last year was spent at Art Students League in NYC studying with Gregg Kreutz.
