The Rob Schouten Gallery will present the works of award-winning pastel artist Annette Adrian Hanna in a show entitled “Beauty in the Moment — the Pastels of Annette Hanna.”

The show opens with a reception from 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 1. The works will be on display through June 1.

Hanna primarily resides in New Jersey but often spends summers on Whidbey.

“My main interests are people and the landscape,” Hanna said, according to a recent press release.

She has been awarded for her works in a variety of media, but favors pastel. Hanna remarked that she enjoys the outdoors and plein-air painting.

“The beauty of the landscape, to me, has a very spiritual quality,” said Hanna, in the release. “I can go to the same location in different seasons or find a different viewpoint, and it becomes an entirely different painting.”

Hanna is a member of several national and regional pastel societies. She has been featured in American Artist Magazine, the Best of Pastel II, International Pastel Artist magazine and the Best of America, Pastel Artists, among other achievements.
