This month, we’ll be featuring artist illustrator Frida Clements. She’s amazing, and we can’t wait for you to meet her! In addition to having Frida here, we’ll be tasting a round of organic Southern Rhône wines to complement the festivities of the evening.

A bit about Frida:

Her silk-screened posters have become synonymous with the vibrant music scene of the Pacific Northwest. Her nature-inspired palette compliments her distinctive Scandinavian aesthetic, in which flora and fauna are frequent subjects. She was named “Best Show Poster Artist” in 2010 by Seattle Weekly, has been featured multiple times as “Poster of the Week” in The Stranger, as well as the books of 1000 Indie Posters, Gig Posters Volume II, and Paper + Ink Workshop. Her first fully illustrated book, The Wandering Goose by Heather Earnhardt, was released in September of 2013 via Sasquatch Books/Random House. Her latest book, Have A Little Pun, has been released in 2015 via Chronicle Books.

Featured Artist: Beth Ramage and her exhibit Materia Medica 2017

My work can be described as interpretive reproductions of medicinal plant illustrations of the 15th and 16th centuries. As a modern day scientist, I love to look back to see how my predecessors made sense of the world, how they gained knowledge, and how they applied that knowledge to healing their fellow man. The herbs represented in this work were used by most people for healing,
harming, or ritual.

Embroidery and quilting are also ancient arts that were used in some form all over the world. Incorporating these elements into the illustrations brings another layer of interpretation to the importance that these plants played in everyday life. My goal is to bring the viewer from the present day to a time in history when life depended on knowledge of the natural world.

Meet the artist, buy some art, load up on your witchy goods just in time for fall!

Featured Artist: Joanne Heppert

I am a Greenwood-based artist who loves to explore. I make art about landscapes that are dear to me, expressing a sense of place through texture, color and light. I want my painting to push past the representation of a place to the feeling of a place. A sharp windswept coastline, parched bright prairies, and damp fragrant stands of trees- I draw inspiration from field sketches and original images to create my acrylic paintings, while my watercolor practice is a mix of studio and plein air creations.”

Featured Artist: Shyla Carter-Braxtan

​Urban Light Studios presents “Corvidae”, featuring the work of Shyla Carter-Braxtan.

“Corvidae” uses the crow in both a physical and symbolic form to weave narrative, stemming from Shyla’s fascination with the bird’s social behaviors, intelligence, and cultural emblem. She creates a connection between the crow and the human form, likening her sense of self to the symbol. “Corvidae” explores dream sequences, self-reflection, and inner turmoil, combining representational elements with bold, cubist forms.

Shyla is a Seattle-based artist from Spokane. She graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2015. From there, she studied under Kimberly Trowbridge in the Trowbridge Atelier at Gage Academy of Art until 2016. Presently, Shyla is a working artist at Equinox Studios in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.​

Featured Artist: Nico Lund 
Oil Painting, Printmaking and Mixed Media

I am fascinated with how our perceptions expand and contract parallel to our interactions with our environment, culture and one another. My compositions are based on emotions, conversations and current events that are funneled through a lens of color, texture and movement.

I want to capture the movement of our past, present and the future, but it won’t stay still. That is my challenge and my inspiration.

Originally from Santa Barbara, California, I have been inspired by the vivid colors, dramatic skies and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest since 1993. Please contact me directly for artwork sales.

Featured Artist: Max Court

I am a third generation artist who paints subjective, random, colorful, chaotic, tactile and visually stimulating art. When it comes to creating art, I like to be a rebel. With that being said, I rarely use a paint brush and mostly paint on wood. As for inspiration for creation, music is my muse. Though, on rare occasions, certain situations in life inspire me.
