Gala Bent is a local Seattle artist that has definitely caught my eye. She delicately draws animal imagery, patterns and geometric shapes tinted with gouche. In person, Gala's art is really captivating when you have the opportunity to observe the intricate lines that she's so carefully drawn on, what appears to be, tea-stained paper. I recently shared an email exchange with Gala and learned that she's the mother of two boys under the age of 3. Somehow, she manages to fit in painting while her boys nap during the day -- now that's awe inspiring!
Gala is currently showing her work at Caffe Fiore in Old Ballard and is having an artist's reception this Saturday, December 8 from 6-8pm. I'm definitely putting Gala on my list of art that I intend to purchase!
