The Arts | Birds of driftwood fly a colorful sky at Collective Visions
Apr 22 2010, 10:19 AM
Throughout the month of May, the downtown Bremerton branch of the Kitsap Regional Library will feature European watercolors by Michelle Van Berkom . The artist will be present during the First Friday Art Walk, from 6-8 p.m. May 7. A portion of sales will be donated to the Library Foundation. “Libraries have always been special places for me,” Van Berkom said in a press release. “As a farm girl in Minnesota, I used to go to the local library and let books transport me to the exotic places I dreamed of.

“It is fun to immerse yourself in that early 50’s New York vibe,” Ewen said. “There’s a lot of nostalgia in it. I think the audience will be left singing these songs and having a great evening of fun.”
