April 1 – 30, 2024

The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission presents the Beth and David Henkes Exhibit at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue W.

Artist Statement:
Beth Henkes is a former theatrical production stage manager turned business marketing and process expert, and also owns The Idea HoundĀ®. Magical Minis Art began in 2018 when she found herself in a small, boring corporate workspace that inspired her to create tiny art for small spaces. Beth’s work has appeared in multiple gallery shows in Washington State and her piece “Plague Year 2” took home the top prize in Small Artisan Works at Edmonds Arts Festival in 2023.

David Henkes is a life-long artist who specializes in pen and ink illustration, primarily of animals big and small. Bringing out the details in an altered realism, and messaging a sense of humor, are important aspects of his artistic creations. He creates numerous animal portraits by commission and his work is occasionally seen at galleries in the area.


The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission oversees the library exhibits as part of its mission to promote cultural events in the community.  Library hours are Monday-Thursday 9am-8pm, Friday-Saturday 10am-6pm, and Sunday 1-5pm.
