Barbara Hoisington -In Memoriam 1926-2019




Ling Bower, PaintingBarbara Hoisington is a retired member of the Spokane Watercolor Society, and has been painting for 30 years. She earned her B.A. in Fine Arts from WSU, an A.A. in Interior Design from SFCC, and worked in fashion and decorating in Spokane, Wenatchee and Bellingham.

She began painting watercolors after retiring in 1991. While living in Wenatchee her paintings were shown in local galleries, Rocky Reach Dam gallery, and the MAC Gallery in Moses Lake.

After returning to Spokane in 1998, she had a painting accepted into the Juried Show of the Spokane Arts Commission, and has had solo shows at the Crawford Gallery and Liberty Café in Auntie’s Bookstore.

Barbara moved to Liberty Lake from the Spokane Valley 11 years ago.  She expects it to be her permanent home because it reminds her of the lake where she grew up on the Olympic Peninsula. A favorite treat is to take workshops from other local artists whose works inspire her.
