Artist Reception - live music, eats & drinks.

5pm-7pm Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

As a painter and photographer, I express my life experiences and personal identity through the use of repetition and rhythms, representing visual forms both natural and man-made.

My interpretations of inner struggles and social conflicts rely on the unique visual cadence of rocks, trees, and hills… or the orderly patterns in objects, shadows and structures.  The permanence of a landscape…the fragility of a birch tree. These images help bring me to a place of greater self-awareness and understanding

Artist Reception - live music, eats & drinks.

5pm-7pm Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

I am guided by the relationships and art of other creative minds in my personal life, always humbled by the next project. By featuring some drawn portraits of people in my life, I get to show my journey. My journey through the people I meet and idolize, become a large part of the work ultimately. As a result, my work​ ​culminates more than West Coast fandom. It culminates something deeper; Spirituality, Art, Culture, Love.

Aleah Ford

Artist Reception - live music, eats & drinks.

5pm-7pm Tuesday, January 28th, 2019

With a multidisciplinary approach, I construct, photograph, paint, and sculpt a melancholic and fanciful existence.  The natural world, full of its flora and fauna, whisper the lore of the mysterious and unfamiliar.  Heavily influenced by a childhood year in Germany, my work takes on a Romantic European aesthetic and philosophy.

Artist Reception - live music, eats & drinks.

5pm-7pm Tuesday, January 28th, 2019

I draw inspiration from my memories and imagination as well as colors and music that surrounds me as I paint. Applying oil paint with brushes and palette knives, I use a variety of techniques to create layers of texture. With bold brush strokes, I achieve a level of abstraction that challenges the viewer’s perception of nature

Artist Reception - live music, eats & drinks.

5pm-7pm Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

My art is influenced by people and places I've experienced in my lifetime. Be it American history, a city scene, abstract images, or a rock star portrait, my work symbolizes familiar and sometimes conceptual images. It allows me to think, invites them in to possibly take their shoes of and stay awhile.

I've always worked with line, but is has been controlled. Through an intense period of experimentation and creation I've developed a process of layering short organic lines that are in constant motion creating value, texture & depth; forming relationships as the color and value transition and interact altering how they are perceived. Although the line may seem chaotic, it forms rhythmic patterns that unifies and attempts to superimpose structure. It is not the line, but the structure that creates chaos and isolation; forcing the line to function within the world it is apart of, usually bound within a perfect square that the line wants to step out of; apart of a variety of relationships, significant in relation to the greater whole.

Artists

Ella Fleš

She studied painting in the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Belgrade and graduated as one of the top students in her class. She received numerous awards from the University of Belgrade for her accomplishments in mosaic, drawing and painting. She left Yugoslavia for Canada in 1980 and has since then established herself in Vancouver’s artistic community. Ella exhibits her works frequently throughout Canada, the United States and internationally.

City Bench

City Bench grew out of our passion for building beautiful objects with meaning and a story. It also grew out of a reverence for the trees that line our streets, fill our public spaces, and enliven our campuses. Those trees represent our shared space and generations of common stories—they are also a vital and overlooked resource.

Kathi Packer

A rigid support enables me to vigorously activate the surface, adding, subtracting, scraping, wiping and ultimately building many layers of paint. Since I work on several pieces at once and over a long period of time, the paintings not only inform each other, but those that follow.

Kelly Taylor

Through exploration of the mixed media process, I use color, shape, line, texture, and at times, photographic images to create abstract art in a raw and energetic way.  My work is often inspired by landscape and nature, and at times, dances on the line between realism and abstraction.

Karen Israel

I am drawn to all things ephemeral. My goal is to reveal the essence of a subject before nature’s inexorable force changes it forever. Documenting these fleeting moments captures an element of immutable truth. This inherent contradiction, irrespective of the subject matter, ignites my creative process and the shifting interplay of value, color and shape becomes the template for my designs.

Joan Hyde Shapiro

Once a graphic designer for a Boston publishing company, Joan has been a full-time artist studio for the past 35 years. She has worked in many areas of art including drawing, painting, sculpture and collage. Her primary tools of statement in painting are color, space, texture, and movement. There is a modern and lyrical quality to all of her work. She has enjoyed numerous successful one-woman shows in Connecticut and continues to exhibit her sculpture and paintings in prestigious galleries throughout the region.

Jenni Freidman

my images on all sorts of cool things like pillows, duvets, phone cases, t-shirts, clocks, mugs, shower curtains and oh, digital prints!

Joan Jardine

I thought it was about time to take another adventure in my art. I always knew that I would go to the abstract, and I felt it was now or never, so I put my imagination to work. Cradled boards, mainly birch or maple is another favorite surface of mine to work on. I like it’s hard surface versus stretched canvas.  Imagining something from nature is what I try to think of when creating, but even if I do, one cannot discern where it came from, although at other times, it is a definite landscape. The love, hope, and terror that I find in painting abstracts is unsurpassed. It is always a new moment, a new challenge.
