Artwork by Ruth Hugeback will be on display in “Saw Something Shiny,” an exhibit available to view throughout June at the throughout June at the Artists’ Studio Association in Lincoln City.

The exhibit, featuring pieces created with metallic paint, is the latest from Hugeback, who enjoys artistic experimentation through painting in watercolor, oil and acrylic as well as dyeing and painting silk.

Hugeback retired from a 40-year career as a clinical laboratory scientist with degrees in laboratory technology, management and communication. Raised in Oregon, she lived in Clark County, Washington before moving to Lincoln City in 2007.

After years of painting only tiny watercolors during vacations, Hugeback found the Artists’ Studio Association in Lincoln City, where she learned about various painting and drawing techniques.

“I have learned that for me, creativity is less about talent than bravery,” she said. “You have to be willing to get your ego out of the way and see what comes through.”

“Saw Something Shiny,” will be on display through June 30 at the Artists’ Studio Association, 620 NE Hwy. 101.
