Laura Wilson and Gayle Pedemonte
The city of Hillsboro offers the Picture Hillsboro competition annually to select an image that will represent the characteristic landscapes and people of Hillsboro, Oregon.
Sequoia members Laura Wilson and Gayle Pedemonte are two of 12 finalists this year.
Their work will be on display February through April in the Shirley Huffman Auditorium, along with the other finalists.
Laura Wilson’s composition, “Hey Siri, Show Me Downtown Hillsboro”, represents an abstract view of a favorite Hillsboro gathering place, the water feature outside the City Center. It includes the Sequoia tree that stand watch over the Washington County Courthouse. Gayle Pedemonte, an accomplished oil and pastel painter, entered her impressionistic composition entitled, “Foggy Morning at the Bus Stop”.
The selection of winning artwork will be made toward the end of February.
On March 6 there will be a presentation of Final Selection at the City Council, Hillsboro Civic Center Auditorium, 150 E Main St, Hillsboro, OR 97123, 7 pm
