The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission will present the work of Seattle area artist Pam Seaberg during the month of July at the Mountlake Terrace Library.
As a child, Seaberg was taught by her grandmother how to sew; Seaberg has taken that experience and combined it with an interest in painting to make art quilts. “Watercolor has always fascinated me,” Seaberg said. “So I started taking lessons hoping I could transfer what I learned into art quilts.”
Seaberg also has a deep connection with animals and has been riding horses much of her life. Painting animals comes naturally to her, she said. Soon her friends were asking her to do commissions of their pets. “My parents had always encouraged me to pursue my dreams, and I am still doing that today,” Seaberg said.
The Seaberg art exhibit runs through July 31 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300-58th Avenue West, during regular library hours: Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5p.m.; and Sundays 1-5 p.m.
