Paintings and Prints by Molly Hashimoto

watercolor of hellebores by Molly Hashimoto

Seattle artist and teacher Molly Hashimoto explores the flora and fauna of the West, from both garden and wild habitats, in watercolors and block prints. This year's exhibit features all new work, including many birds, and prints of Western conifers of the coast and timberline plus watercolors of favorite flowers playfully painted from her own garden. Molly's work is published by Pomegranate as cards, calendars, puzzles and books; many of those items will be offered for sale with the prints and paintings.

Molly's work will be on display in the Miller Library November 5 through December 28, and she invites you to an opening reception November 5 from 5 to 7pm.
