04/19/2006 -- "Mourning Song" Donated To Woodmark Foundation!


DEPOE BAY - Renowned Artist Colette Black created "Mourning Song" to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the passing of Wade J. Woodmark.

A Fusion Wall hanging made of enamel paints and a high-gloss resin, the 48" x 96" acrylic wall sculpture was designed using Wade's favorite colors. The colors were double poured to emphasize the resemblance to Wade's strong character and personality. "I donated "Mourning Song" to the Wade J. Woodmark Foundation in hopes that it will bring enlightenment to the needs of young adults in our society," the artist said. "There are many tribulations facing young people today& My hope is that the foundation will help with these needs and many other issues."
Colette Black has been a Northwest artist for 20 years and exhibits at The Ace Gallery in Seattle, The Earthen Works Gallery, as well as all three of the Lawrence Galleries. She will also be serving on the Board of Directors of the Wade J. Woodmark Foundation as the Chair of Arts Council. Mourning Song will be displayed prominently in the Silver Heron Gallery on Bay St., one block east of Hwy. 101.
