Hudgins hosts local artists of the 11th exhibit

Representative Zack Hudgins' office under the dome of the Washington State Capitol has become an art gallery. Thirty-two paintings and photographs on the historic walls fill the room with images of orange cranes, bridges at night, and lights shining on darkened streets.

Hudgins explained the impetus for the art show: After placing in the power tool race at the Georgetown old school fair (he received an honorable mention award), Hudgins met several artists from the neighborhood and asked them if they wanted to show their work in his office. “South Park and Georgetown are known for their arts community – right in the middle of the largest industrial area in our state. The artists were thrilled at the idea, and their work is now on display in my office and I am thrilled to have it.”

Stop by and check out the cool local works at the Artist Reception: February 4, 2009, 4:30-6:30 p.m.
