Coming up this Fall

It may be a little early for some to start thinking about Fall, but I know some who are already starting to plan their cold weather getaways. I am starting to prepare for my first art fair at Magnuson Park this October. I am excited to put everything together and show you what I've been working on this year.

Come find me at Booth A9!

The event is actually presented in two parts, showcasing 200+ artists over two weekends, one in October another in November. Take a sneak peak at what you'll see by visiting the Juried Members Gallery. The searchable gallery denotes the October show artists with blue icons, and the November artists with red.  Visit the October show and receive a FREE pass to the November show as well!

New Organic Linen scrap paintings! I'm taking scrap from our clothing project and preparing them for a series of small experimental paintings. Either to stretch onto unconventional frames or to lay on top of matboard.

Magnuson Park Gallery Grand Opening - October 24-26 - Building 30 

Coinciding with the Best of the Northwest show October 24-26, is the grand opening of the new Magnuson Park Gallery. Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange (SPACE) welcome everyone to discover Seattle's newest gallery in the west wing of Building 30. Located upstairs and down the hall from the historic Officer's Club, SPACE is pleased to present works on loan from the City of Seattle's art collection. This special exhibit features work by notable artists Robert Maki, Mary Henry, Ronald Bladen, Isaac Layman, Gaylen Hansen, Ross Palmer Beecher and John Feodorov.

The Magnuson Park Gallery opening will run the full weekend of Best of the Northwest.  It is rumored that some of the resident artists will also hold Open Studios during the weekend.
