 Artwork created by local artists Allene Soshea and Sue Dawson, whose work is currently on exhibit at Fogdog Gallery in downtown Arlington, is now on permanent display at Coastal Community Bank at Smokey Point. Other pieces by these artists will also soon be showcased at the Snohomish branch.

A total of four pieces of art from Fogdog Gallery are on display at the Smokey Point branch of Coastal Community Bank—three giclee prints by Allene Soshea and an original pastel painting by Sue Dawson.

Fogdog Gallery owner Claire Cundiff played a key role in the set up of the art works at Coastal, working closely with Robin Reinig, branch manager at Smokey Point.

“As a community bank, we hoped we could find art for our new branch that was created within our local community,” said Reinig. “We fell in love with wonderful art created by Allene Soshea and

Sue Dawson and we knew we had to have them.”

“We are thrilled to be in a position to provide this amazing artwork to Coastal Bank from our very talented local artists,” said Cundiff. “Fogdog Gallery is home to some of the most accomplished artists in this region. So it is my pleasure to give people who do their banking at Coastal a chance to appreciate their fine artistry.”

Paintings by Soshea and Dawson are also on display at Fogdog Gallery, along with art works from nearly 100 other local painters, photographers, sculptors and other artists who represent mediums as diverse as jewelry, sculpture, mixed media, ceramics, and textiles. In addition to an eclectic array of art exhibits, Fogdog Gallery also hosts art classes, live music, community wine tasting events and theatre productions.
