ARTIST RECEPTION & OPEN HOUSE: Thursday, April 30, 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
“Structural Reinforcement” captures a wide range of spatial and architectural references in the work of five artists from around the Puget Sound region. David Friend and Laura Kraft explore abstraction in acrylic painting and digital prints, experimenting with space by juxtaposing foreground and background. In a series of photographs that evoke early 20th century portraiture (the classic oval format and the finely nuanced focal point), Caitlin Brookins reexamines the structure and context of the posed studio snapshot, balancing a sense of formality with a contemporary focus on the body as object. Dara Solliday’s representations of urban development are cast in multi-layered views of text, encaustic, and the built environment. Working with found objects in surprising, often surreal combinations, Sonya Stockton’s sculptures connect viewers to the mystery of the material world.


I am so excited to be in the exhibit! Thursday evening is the Artist's Reception and Open House! I hope to see you there. Come by and say hi, I would love to meet you and have a chat!
