Exhibitions

Ann Vandervelde & Richard Wiegmann

June 5-28, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 5th, 6-8pm

Ann Vandervelde paints magnifications of nature that focus on color, line, and shadow. With studios in Seattle and the San Juan Islands, she employs a rich color palette that reflects her Washington surroundings. Using acrylics, papers, and oil pastels, she "maps the earth on canvas in an attempt to answer questions about green and urban space, climate, sound, light, water, and our own not insignificant footprint."

Richard Wiegmann examines the intricacies, structures, and metaphors of nature through mixed media drawings of seashores and other natural habitats. He works from memory, imagination, sketches, and photographs, often on a translucent polyester film that lends his work an ethereal quality. Wiegmann views the natural world as simultaneously temporary and transcendent, noting that even in our "increasingly technological culture," it is difficult to experience nature without noticing small details like sound, texture, or light.
