Providence Marianwood hosts 
‘Spring Approaches’ show

March 26, 2013

Three Issaquah institutions — Providence Marianwood skilled nursing home, the artEAST artists’ group and UP Front Gallery — are joining forces to bring artwork to the community.

The current show in the Marianwood gallery, entitled “Spring Approaches,” features work by artists from the UP Front Gallery in Issaquah. It is co-sponsored by Providence Marianwood and artEAST.

Issaquah artist Heidi Rose is showing several portraits of buildings from the local area. With watercolor, pen and ink, and pencil, Rose captures the remarkable and extraordinary beauty of seemingly common and everyday sights from the surrounding community — a red barn, a historic building and a chapel are among her subjects.
