ARTISTS WE WORK WITH
Hollingsworth's work features weathered, broken surfaces with lettering and colored fragments resembling walls you might encounter in any big metropolitan city, where flyers and posters are altered with graffiti and tears.
Annie Lewis works with elements finding their way into patterns. Bold, graphic and layered with texture, her process-driven works on paper are enlivening, seeking both harmony and anomaly.
Christine Lee focuses on the technique of monotype; each of her prints is singular and unique. Christine loves the process of layering with oil-based inks and an etching press.
Jeff Olson is a Seattle based artist with a significant and original body of work spanning more than thirty years, whose work offers a unique vision of the landscape and the inspirational forces of nature which shape it.
Encaustic, mixed media
Cort creates contemporary abstracts with the awareness and inspiration of our everchanging environments, and the pull of our consciousness that yearns for healing to begin.
Brooke’s paintings focus on innovation, aesthetics, place and perception. With a background in plein air (on site) landscape painting, she has gained an intuitive affinity for color and dynamic composition.
Jen works with acrylic mixed medias as well as encaustics. Her style, although always highly textural, ranges greatly, allowing her freedom in artistic experimentation, resulting in constant evolution
MELINDA HURST FRYE
Hurst Frye is a Seattle-based exhibiting artist, working in themes of implied environments and shared experiences within the still life aesthetic. Her current work illustrates the mystery and activity of Northwest subterranean and residential Seattle ecosystems, including her front yard.
Bontrager places high value on the thought and motivation behind creative expression. Art reflects life. Life is an abstract of emotions and experiences and happenings: we don’t often get to see the big picture, but the details engage us and we are drawn into the intimacy of individual moments.
ŽANETKA K. GAWRONSKI
Gawronski is interested in what is often overlooked. She hopes to evoke a sense of quiet reflection in the viewer, perhaps tickling past moments they may have forgotten.
Everett explores in canvases that are torn and cut and then stitched back together to create pieces that act as totems for species and places that are barely hanging on by a thread.
Unlike in traditional papercutting, Qin&Qin use very thick cardstocks to create a sculpture-like look in the works. The structural strength of the material allows the build up layers to create a unique 3-dimensional effect.
Shapiro is passionate about exploring both the natural world and urban environments, and pays particular attention to scale, capturing the shared connection between people and the breadth and depth of our landscapes.
