Park­lane Gallery has been a vi­brant mem­ber of the Seat­tle area art scene since 1991. Lo­cated in the heart of the pic­turesque com­mu­nity of Kirk­land, Wash­ing­ton, di­rectly across Lake Wash­ing­ton from Seat­tle, this artis­towned gallery fea­tures the work of 40 North­west artists. Park­lane fo­cuses on pro­vid­ing a di­ver­sity of fine art from emerg­ing and well-es­tab­lished artists that in­cludes paint­ings, pho­tog­ra­phy, dig­i­tal art, sculp­ture, glass art and artisan jew­elry. Within its light­filled walls vis­i­tors will find dis­tinc­tive and imag­i­na­tive art­work that in­cludes both con­tem­po­rary and tra­di­tional cre­ations.

Park­lane takes great pride in be­ing known as shop­per­friendly. Gallery mem­bers, who all work in the gallery, are knowl­edge­able, in­for­ma­tive and help­ful to first-time vis­i­tors as well as those who reg­u­larly drop in as they en­joy the charm of this lake­front com­mu­nity. Park­lane joins with the com­mu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in both the year-round sec­ond Fri­day art walks and reg­u­larly sched­uled wine walks.

In ad­di­tion to the works of its gallery mem­bers, which are al­ways on dis­play, Park­lane spon­sors three open ju­ried ex­hibits through­out the year fea­tur­ing the com­po­si­tions of non-gallery artists, high­lighted by its na­tion­ally well-known and re­spected In­ter­na­tional Minia­ture Show, which re­cently cel­e­brated its 26th an­niver­sary dur­ing the month of May. In Septem­ber, Park­lane is host­ing All Crea­tures Great and Small,a show that in­cludes paint­ings and pho­tog­ra­phy fea­tur­ing crea­tures of all sizes, both ob­vi­ous as well as well­hid­den, such as birds, bun­nies and but­ter­flies peek­ing out of a land­scape. ex­pres­sive brush­strokes.

Most of her work is land­scape in plein air or de­rived from plein air stud­ies. She stud­ied art through­out school and col­lege; at the School of Draw­ing and Painting, In­sti­tute for Amer­i­can Univer­si­ties, Aix-en-Provence, France; at Gage Academy of Art, Seat­tle; and with numer­ous mas­ter oil pain­ters from the U.S. and else­where.

She shows her work in gal­leries and other venues, in ju­ried ex­hibits and has had a num­ber of solo shows. Wells-Moran has won hon­ors from both in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal com­pe­ti­tions, and she en­joys teach­ing all ages. She paints in both the Pa­cific North­west and Baja Sur, Mex­ico. Her cur­rent shows are listed on her web­site and she en­joys vis­i­tors to her stu­dio in Shoreline, Wash­ing­ton, by ap­point­ment.
