EDGES: Recent work by artists Tamara Stephas and Kristen Scott looks at the boundary between nature and the built environment. Tamara Stephas explores the relationship between humans and nature in an era of rapid environmental change. Her new landscape paintings pay homage to the power and beauty of the Pacific Coast, with a nod to the romantic imagination of the era of manifest destiny. As an architect and artist, Kristen Scott is drawn to edges — the line of how a building meets the sky and the ground, the shadow pattern on a wall, the framed view through a window that separates inside and out. Working in watercolor and often plein-air, she describes the unique qualities of a place, by exploring line, shape and the space between.
In April, Painters Under Pressure, a Seattle print arts salon will be showing their work at the Phinney Center Gallery. Painters Under Pressure Salon is a cohesive group of artists who gather each month to share their art with each other, offer and receive feedback, provide support and discuss challenges of being an artist. They are celebrating their tenth anniversary this year. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, April 12, from 7-9 pm.
