North Bend painters and musicians Lenore and Emanuel Vardi will have their works of art on display at The Laurel Tree gallery in Duvall.
The Laurel Tree showcases contemporary Pacific Northwest art with a focus on artists who live in and around the Snoqualmie Valley.
“The gallery is less than a year old and already represents some amazing international talent, so we’re very proud to be included,” Lenore Vardi said.
The gallery will feature the Vardis’ original oil and acrylic paintings, prints, giclées and line drawings.
“The Vardis are a welcome addition to our gallery – both their art and their personalities,” says Laurel Nehl who owns The Laurel Tree with her husband Michael
“We created the gallery for two reasons," Michael Nehl said. "We want everyone to come in and enjoy our artists' work in a relaxing, zero-pressure atmosphere. Art should be shared and talked about."
The Nehls also want to show the world what the Valley has to offer.
"The Vardis help us fulfill both goals – they are world-class artists and just very nice people,” Michael said.
