Gayle Pedemonte and Laura Wilson

Gayle Pedemonte and Laura Wilson each have a piece hanging at the Hillsboro City Center as part of their Picture Hillsboro 2018 art show and competition.

Gayle’s oil and Laura’s watercolor were among more than 50 submissions the city received this year in its call for artists to depict Hillsboro. There are 10 total artist finalists with 12 images being considered. The city will purchase one piece to become part of its permanent collection and reproduce the image for use on city notecards. On March 6, first Tuesday, the mayor will announce this year’s winner during the city council meeting.

Gayle and Laura recently attended a city council meeting to talk about their art work and about being members of Sequoia Gallery + Studios.
