Diane Paton Peel is one of the Northwest’s favorite artists, according to Lake Chelan Arts Council President Ronna Currier. Peel will be just one of the artists returning to the 2017 Creative Arts Festival which will be held at Riverwalk Park this coming weekend August 19-20, 2017.
“She is also one adventurous lady,” Currier said. “She treks through the Cascades with backpack full or easel and paints. Her love of nature and all the Northwest has to offer can be found in the fluid movements of her oil paintings.”
“Diane’s work reveals an artist that is in tune with the beauty around her and is willing to share that with her brush. Her work on landscapes, buildings with character, and wildlife reflect her travels in and around the Northwest and Alaska,” continued Currier.
One of Peel’s paintings pictured at the top, showing a beautiful scene of Chelan in the Fall is now available for bid at the Lake Chelan Library. Several area artists have donated their works that are available for viewing and bidding at the library. All the donated art will be available for bidding up until the end of the Festival on August 20th.
Support your community and its artistic endeavors by bidding on the donated art and attending the Creative Arts Festival the weekend August 19 and 20, 2017, at Riverwalk Park in downtown Chelan.
