Dig Deep

Local oil painter Pam Ingalls will present her 15th annual portrait show, “Facing Pets and Their People,” with an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, May 5, in Dig Deep’s new Greenhouse Gallery. Local guitarist Daryl Redeker will serenade viewers.

“I wanted to depict the deep connection we have with our furry and feathery family members — there’s even a tortoise painting,” said Ingalls. “I’m hoping my paintings will bring some joy to these serious times, like the pets themselves do.”

The show is part of the VIVA Art Studio Tour taking place May 7, 8, 14 and 15.

Dig Deep is located at 19028 Vashon Hwy SW.
