The Renton Municipal Arts Commission proudly presents an exhibit by local oil painter Tracy Wallschlaeger. The exhibit will be on display February 25 – March 30. The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception on Saturday, February 25, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Carco Theatre lobby.

WarholTracy graduated from Central Washington University in 1985 with a BA in graphic design. She was the recipient of both The Morris Merit Scholarship and The Little Art Gallery Scholarship. Her work includes paintings that have been featured in numerous community art walks as well as larger scale projects for Seattle Animal Shelter, Shoreline Community College and First Avenue Women's Shelter. Her poster design for United Way's combined fund drive was selected as the prize-winning entry for their annual fundraising efforts and her Spay and Neuter poster for Seattle Animal Shelter was selected as the national shelter poster prize winner for promoting animal care. Her influences include Edward Hopper, Georgia O'Keeffe and local artists Z.Z. Wei and Lois Silver. The pieces in this show gather inspiration from the idea in the movie “The Golden Compass,” in which the soul resides outside the body.

To contact Tracy, please call or email her at or 206-714-9662.

Carco Theatre is located adjacent to the Renton Community Center at 1717 Maple Valley Highway at the intersection of I-405 and Maple Valley Highway. Theatre hours of operation are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with additional viewing on show nights.
