I mine anxieties of the corporeal body through the liquidity of paint. I am deeply fascinated by the ever-changing processes of growth and decay visible in our environment—of our own body and the landscape surrounding us. Much of my imagery is gleaned from observation, whether painted directly from life in the studio or through the […]

Janet Christensen

The foundation for the imagery comes during walks on the farm in Kent County and early morning rows on the river, often before the sun breaches the horizon. This work is deeply personal, reflecting my relationship to sense of place. The pieces are the result of snapshots etched into memory and interpretation of feelings aroused […]

Elizabeth MacDonald

Through clay, I express my connection to the natural world. Each work speaks to the process of change, whether through the appearance of age or the spontaneity of gesture. Lured by the color and texture, ancient in feeling, I often express these qualities through the use of fragmentation. Small surface elements draw the viewer into […]

Our work is based on observations of our home in North Central Washington, a place of rugged mountains, sagebrush foothills, and narrow river valleys. While the snow-capped peaks inspire awe, it is the sparse dry hills and agricultural fields that continually draw our attention. It is in these lowlands that we find our voice, exploring […]

Carol Rowan

I found shelter in Jackson Pollack’s paintings as a teenager. Then began my regular visitations to the Vermeer’s at the Met. Now, 30 years later, I find deep peace in front of a Bierstadt and am awed by the work of Fredrick Church and Thomas Cole. Home was not a place for me, but a […]

Susan Kerns

Botanical subjects are an inspiration for me whether in the form of landscape or individual plants. I see them as architectural structures revealed by light. I seek the universal truth in visual forms through the play of light on, in and around the subject. I like to be able to read a painting from across […]

Beverly Ress

My work is an ongoing visual investigation of mortality. I draw carefully observed representations of things that have wandered off this mortal coil – birds, plants, bugs, and animals. Each is equal to the others in its mortality. I reinforce that equivalency by drawing them all in the same way: colored pencil on 22″x30″ paper. […]

Emily Kalwaitis

I am interested in that which is half-hidden and mysterious. I’m drawn to subtle emotional states, barely perceivable, fleeting and unsubstantial. I’m drawn to things that fade. My most recent work centers around female figures, both women and young girls. The figures are most frequently amidst some element of nature; clouds, plants, birds, deer, water, […]

Susan Hostetler

After earning her fine arts degree in painting, Susan Hostetler added hand papermaking as a skill with awards from the Russell Siebert and Tiffany Foundations to study with Twinrocker Handmade Paper in Indiana, where she made custom papers for artists such as Rauschenberg, Warhol and Jasper John

Mary Pritchard

My work is based on two keys elements, the nature of the pastel medium and the subject matter that has the greatest appeal to me–the rural landscape. I respond emotionally and visually to a natural environment that seems hospitable to humans and to architecture that seems in harmony with the natural environment. These landscapes can […]

Cynthia Burke

The diversity of the natural world yields a never-ending supply of subjects for my paintings, however I never place my subjects in their natural environment. It seems far more interesting to give them a little of ours. The result is sometimes humorous and, I hope, often thought provoking. I often use the style of a […]
