PORT LUDLOW — Marti Mathis, a watercolorist drawn to sunshine and flowers, will be celebrated with an artist’s reception at the Columbia Bank lobby, 9500 Oak Bay Road, this Wednesday.

Admission is free to the party from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Mathis’ new display of paintings, adjacent to the bank in the Port Ludlow Artists’ League Art Gallery, will stay up through October.

The gallery is open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

“When paint meets with wet paper . . . and a shape starts to emerge,” she added, “that makes my heart beat a little faster, and I can’t wait to see the finished painting.”

Mathis teaches a weekly watercolor class in her Port Ludlow studio. Potential students can reach her via
