ARLENE MORTIMER

I WAS BORN IN BELLINGHAM AND FAIRHAVEN HAS BEEN MY HOME FOR THE PAST 27 YEARS.

MY ARTISTIC EDUCATION HAS BEEN MAINLY LOCAL CLASSES FROM MANY WELL KNOWN ARTISTS WHO HAVE GIVEN ME A FOUNDATION TO BUILD MY OWN PATHWAY.  I HAVE CHOSEN A VARIETY OF PAINTING SUBJECTS IN WATERCOLOR AND PASTEL FOR THIS EXHIBIT BECAUSE THESE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITES.  EACH ONE HAS A SPECIAL EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT WHICH RANGES FROM SERENITY TO WHIMISICAL.  YOU CAN SEE MORE OF MY WORK AT THE WHATCOM ART MARKET IN MACKENZIE ALLEY IN FAIRHAVEN.

I am a black and white fine art photographer with the good fortune to live here in Bellingham.  My journey of late is to both celebrate our surroundings and pursure my passion to create images that ask rather than tell.  Images that attempt to transcend the medium of ink and paper, that invite you past the surface and into the realms of story, metaphor and emotion.  Or, as Minor White would have it, \"...photograph what else it is.\"
