Northern Lights

PUYALLUP SHOW SUCCESS

Rie Munoz, featured artist at the 2003 Puyallup Fair had a fun and successful exhibition. Attendance at the Fair topped 1.2 million people over 17 days with 120,000 people visiting the art pavilion where the Munoz exhibition was held. Sales of Rie's paintings and the "Northern Lights Legend" tapestry broke all records for an artist at the Puyallup Fair. Half of the original watercolors sold in the first hour. At the end of the show only nine of the 39 available watercolor paintings remained. You can refer to our web site to see which paintings sold and for how much.

There were extensive memorabilia displays showing Rie's paintings in progress, field and composite sketches. Paints, brushes and the Munoz pottery collection Rie painted for her son's wedding to Cathy Engstrom were shown. King Island photos, carvings and the 1951 National Geographic article of Rie Munoz's experiences on the remote Bering Sea island were displayed along with other treasures.

The entire Munoz family attended, along with Mercedes' friend Shawna from Juneau. The kids enjoyed all the fair festivities which included winning oodles of stuffed animals. Rie Munoz and family visited with many good friends, collectors, and gallery owners who attended the four-day Rie Munoz artist appearance. She signed, chatted and met with over 1,200 people during the Fair. Rie is in Tenakee Springs and is settling in for a winter with more masterpieces to come.
