Into the Woods: A Sharon Carr Exhibit


With the colors of the Harbor coming alive with spring, Harbor History Museum is pleased to bring the beauty of the outdoors inside with its upcoming Lobby Gallery show, Into the Woods: A Sharon Carr Exhibit from May 5 through June 22.

A local artist, Sharon Carr began painting in her spare time while working as a counselor, but fell in love with the process of creation. Now a full-time painter, her lively work celebrates color and form, and the boundaries between the abstract and the literal within a composition. Of her process, Sharon Carr says: “My art has evolved over the years from realistic watercolor to more expressive acrylic painting on canvas. Today I do much of my work with a palette knife because I love the luscious texture it allows. I work to combine recognizable subject matter with abstract shapes and color to create a composition that sings.”

Sharon Carr's work has been shown in numerous galleries and juried shows throughout the region, including Gallery Row (Gig Harbor), Bainbridge Arts and Crafts, Bluewater Art (Poulsbo), Edmonds Art Festival, San Francisco Flower and Garden Show, Red Rock Art Fest, and the Lake Oswego Art Festival.
