Lynnwood Library Gallery Featuring Lisa Taylor & Michael Cramer

On Display through July 9

The Lynnwood Arts Commission presents photographer Lisa Taylor and Miniature Figure Painter Michael Cramer.

A diversified collection of black and white as well as color photography by Shoreline photographer, Lisa Taylor, is featured through July 9th at the Lynnwood Library Art Gallery. Ms. Taylor celebrates life in everything that she sees, photographing amazing people creating their passions in her “Artist Hands Creating,” a collection of black and white photography as well as capturing with her camera the details of forgotten place, the  daily living of ordinary people, and some very familiar local landmarks. She hopes viewers will stop, take a breath and remember to look for all the things in their lives to celebrate.

The Lynnwood Arts Commission also features miniature painter, Michael Cramer, in the glass display case in the lobby of the Lynnwood Library through July 9th. Cramer's work shows historical and military miniature busts and figures have won several notable awards including the Seattle IPMS Show Best Figure Award for three years running. In 2014, at the World Expo Figure Show in Stressa, Italy, Michael achieved a Bronze Medal in the Master Painter Category in a field of over 12,000 entries. Although he sometimes creates the piece from scratch, Michael enjoys the painting in intricate detail the most. Cramer has taken weeks and sometimes months to complete a single figure.
