Pastel paintings from local artist and instructor Jannelle Loewen and three of her students are on display during the month of February at the Mountlake Terrace Library. The exhibit features work of Loewen and students Bev Birmele, Kathy Berg, and Glenda Wilson.
Loewen, an international award-winning artist, is represented by the Cole Gallery in downtown Edmonds and the Lawrence Gallery in Sheridan and Shalishan, Oregon.
