Artist: Craig van den Bosch, Paintings
Playing off of the philosopher Walter Benjamin’s “dialectical image”, my work addresses the dynamics of biology vs. technology and asks whether there will be a harmony between the two as the gap closes. Technology is changing the way in which we interpret these age-old perceptions of reality and weaves a new fabric. How will we interact within this new fabric?

Artist: Ann Maki, Textile Sculptures
"Recently, I have turned my hands away from fabric and machine stitch to freeform hand-knitting to create three-dimensional abstract fiber works. Inspired by large shapes in nature, such as mountain sides and mima mounds, they are studies of serenity and strength. The softness of the knit structures belies the ruggedness of the hard solids of rocky mountainsides and packed earth of the mounds. Other pieces are brighter and whimsical, using the media to lighten the emotion." - Maki
Regular hours: Thursday to Sunday, 12-5pm

From early childhood we are given toy cars to play with, thus beginning a life long fascination with the automobile. In this photo series, the model cars continue to stand-in for the real thing. The "beau ideal" of the sleek sports car poised on a California cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean calls us to freedom of the open road. The images in the Night Ride Home part of the series continues the exploration of car culture by focusing on the mood of heading home- satisfied with the day's journey.
Ethan Bickel received a BFA in Printmaking at the Hartford Art School and a Master's in Landscape Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design. One of his earliest memories is the car ride from Cape Cod to his family home in western Massachusetts. Since moving to Seattle in 1997, Ethan has exhibited his photographs regularly throughout the area.

"I am inspired by the little things. I like to look at the world through an optimistic point of view and then find opportunities to be uplifted. When you look at something beautiful, you forget the entire negative energy and focus on the moment. For me, nature has this effect. I look to bring in the elements to encourage the viewer to get to that place…" -Johnson

Artist: Jan Tervonen, Paintings
"After a career in the precise left-brain world, I reinvented myself as an abstract watercolor artist whose work is reminiscent of mid-century modern paintings. Painting is meditative. I paint loosely, play with colors, and let the paints flow together naturally as highlighted in the managed chaos of color and form in my work." - Tervonen

"When I have an idea in my head, they start out pretty simple: draw a girl in an apron-- tell her story, she's in customer service, she hates her job and she's having a bad day-- so you draw this moody looking girl in an apron in front of a cash register-- and hopefully, someone who is having a bad day with an apron on-- will find some comfort in looking at my drawings." - Kousin
