The Mountlake Terrace Arts Commission presents the Midori Hoser Exhibit at the City of Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue West. In her “realistic” style, Midori captures the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest in oils, watercolors and pastels, displayed in an impressive collection of vibrant landscapes.
Award-winning local artist Midori Hoser is a natural. In l967, without any prior formal training, she created her first oil painting. Once discovering her natural gift, Midori enhanced her skills through a commercial art course from the Art Instruction School of Minnesota, graduating in l974. She also broadened her talents by taking various workshops in oil painting, watercolor, pastel and batik.
Midori and her husband moved to Edmonds in 1976 where they fell in love with the scenery of the Northwest. They take frequent road trips during which Midori collects her inspirations through photographs and quick sketches.
Accepted into many juried arts shows, Midori’s talent has earned her membership in several local art groups, including Gallery North, Seattle League of Art, Northwest Pastel Society, and Seattle Co-Arts.
The show runs through August 31 at the City of Mountlake Terrace Library, Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
