Weekend Update

We're Back! First Thursday & First Friday!

Our newest exhibit features Portland artist, Heidi Kirkpatrick and Tacoma artist, Victoria Bjorklund.

Fine art photographer, Heidi Kirkpatrick is showing Gray Area. Kirkpatrick often using subjects with whom she has a personal relationship, exposing how society’s expectations restrain and confine contemporary women. Kirkpatrick transforms found pbjects into playful pieces of art. Fusing transparent figurative photographs, Gray's Anatomy illustrations and children's toys, blocks, boxes and tins, she creates playful tension between imagery and object. Kirkpatrick’s work is included in OSHU’s Corporate Collection as well as several museum collections throughout the United States. She has been featured in two previous group shows at 23 Sandy Gallery.

In Glass Figments, photographic and book artist, Victoria Bjorklund creates a photographic narrative within each of her images. By integrating reflective images with her subject, Bjorklund creates a duality that is aesthetically pleasing and thought provoking. Bjorklund’s images invite the viewer to take a moment to look into windows, savor the tableaux and experience a place where reality ends and your own imagination begins. Victoria Bjorklund is a 2009 recipient of the Tacoma Artist Initiative Program grant (TAIP) by the city of Tacoma, Washington.

The work of both these artists will be on view through November 28, 2009, but why wait? Join us for First Thursday (11/5) or at our Artists Reception on First Friday(11/6). We will be open both nights until 8 p.m.
