"The View West" focuses on the landscape of the American West has always sparked our imagination, in large part because it defies our comprehension. It is defined by an expansiveness that takes many forms, captivating our senses and remaining elusive to our occupation.  The following photographs offer viewpoints of a range of natural forms that share an enduring presence – rolling prairie hills, a distant mountain range, a frenetic tide – and humble our repeated efforts to intervene. And yet, we persist in engaging – fields are plowed to the shape of rolling loam, a season of speed races waits for water to dissipate, a boardwalk leads to primitive hot springs, a fishing village becomes the backdrop for winter’s calamity. Despite our repeated efforts to negotiate with the land it is, in fact, setting its own terms… all the while tempting us with a seemingly infinite horizon.

The original photos in the "Matchbox Car Series: Size is Relative" series were conceived with the idea of using toy cars to represent the ideal; the beautiful car in a beautiful setting, calling us to the freedom of the open road.  This Matchbox series entitled “Night Ride Home” continues the exploration of American car culture by focusing on the mood of heading home at the end of the day, satisfied with the day’s journey.
Like so many Americans, Ethan Bickel spent a lot of his childhood riding in cars: accompanying parents and siblings on daily errands, weekend drives to visit grandparents, and summer roads trips up and down the East Coast.  A longtime resident Seattle, Ethan makes works as and Landscape and Interior Designer.

Emily Alice Peck’s work is encaustic art, using wax, heat, and pigment.  She tells us that she started developing her technique almost 3 years ago:  “The canvas built of wood, using plaster/fresco base, color oil pastels, acrylic, oil, milk and clay paints.  The lines are etched, and finished with layers of wax.”  For Emily “the hands are connected to the heart".

"I have always made art. My eyes and my heart have always been excited by the ability to create something out of nothing. I weave with yard waste, or gathered materials. I spend many hours LOOKING at things entranced by how one takes a three dimensional object, puts it on two dimensional paper to make it look three dimensional. That thrills me."  ArtFX Gallery is pleased to show the results of her creative wanderings!

Landscapes and structures by the water have a certain draw for Katrina Beach.  There is a tension between the natural coast and the man-made one, and she finds beauty in found in both.  Stop in and see her collection of coastal images and be reminded of the wonderful feeling of being by the water.
