This exhibit demonstrates a dynamic diversity of styles and approaches to the making of art.

Sandy Brooke, Julie Green, Shelley Jordon and Douglas Russell show work in a variety of approaches and in the various media of oil, acrylic, and mixed media paintings.

Kay Campbell’s work, Perceptions, deals with interaction with the audience.

Graphic designer Christine Gallagher contributes several pieces that address of lettering, design, and conceptual concepts. Andrea Marks’ type diptych, Type Specimen, is reminiscent of the framed & pinned butterfly collections of the 18th century.  Nancy Froehlich has a number of ceramic works that involve typography in their design. Nathan Langner’s, “Drip Brew,” is a study of package design, and Paul Mazzucca’s, This, That and the Other Thing (Chapter 1) is a crossover graphic design/fine art installation of inked lithographic plates.

Yuji Hiratsuka is one of the northwest’s prized printmakers, and his Flower Heads, Gallaphant and Jungle Gem an intaglio, relief, and Chine collé prints reveals his colorist talent in a rare reduction intaglio process.

Shelley Jordon’s displays a new short video Dreaming/Drowning, her newest exploration in this field after her work, Family History won the “Silver Coyote, Critic’s Choice Award” at the Gold Coyote Super Short Film Festival in Marylhurst in May of 2009.

John Maul’s Genesis series, of five encaustic wall sculptures, typifies his broad-range experimental use of material, in this case encaustic and foam core, and once again includes the smell of sweet beeswax.

Andrew Myers’ moves from larger than life charcoal drawings to an intimate series of monotype prints this year.
