Alice Becker & Heather Blume (Jan 8 to Feb 12)

Iceland-Crevasse - webAlice Becker

I am a retired attorney and am now turning my attention to create art through photography. While born and raised in the Chicago area, I have lived my entire professional and adult life in Seattle. I have always wanted to be a photographer but had to abandon this interest while working and raising my family. Since retiring, I have taken numerous photography classes and have had my work displayed in numerous local exhibits, and public art forums, and also published in literary/arts journals and the Seattle Times.

 "Iceland - Crevasse"

Alice speaks about her work:
I am attracted to shapes, angles, patterns, textures, reflections and color contrasts. I focus naturally on these details for my work as I am drawn to them and their juxtaposition. I photograph without special equipment – usually my IPhone or my Nikon DSLR with a standard lens. My goal when I photograph is take the image as I initially see it and focus less on postproduction work. I want viewers to see the image as I see it when I make the photograph. I also want viewers to see an image of subject matter that is unique. If I photograph a flower the goal of the photograph is not only to show a flower but to show the flower in way that is unique and has an impact on viewers’ thoughts. I want my photographs to draw the viewer into the world of nature in a way they may not have previously experienced. For the purposes of my submission and consistent with my artist statement, I am submitting a series of photograph that I created on a recent trip to Iceland.

Heather Blume

Born and raised in northwest Kansas, many of Heather Blume’s pieces harken back to the breathtaking weather and spanning horizons of her childhood, while others reflect the serenity and complex beauty of Western Washington, where she has lived for the last 12 years. She studied at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas, under several skilled professors, including printmaker James Munce, who greatly influenced her work. More of her portfolio can be found at www.heatherblumestudio.com or Instagram at www.instagram.com/heatherblumestudio

 

 

 
"Glacier"

Heather speaks about her work:
My abstract acrylic portfolio is characterized by deep texture exploration, bold knife strokes as a blending technique, intense color layering, and constant experimentation. I believe art is about emotional and intellectual evocation, and in many of my works, dichotomous themes of peaceful solitude and interconnectivity play, as well as deeper stories and statements about mental health, hope, and recovery. Open expression of internal feelings and perceptions aid others in expressing themselves, and allow the viewers of such work to find a tie to with others in an increasingly polarized world where it is easy to feel isolated.

Ava Norgaard (Jan 12 - Mar 9)


ava - webAva Norgaard was born in 2009, and raised in Bellevue, WA.  She is now the 4th grader at Clydehill Elementary school.  She first got interested in drawing as a 1st grader, where her teacher loved drawing and showed the amazing drawings she had done since she was a child.  She then started her official drawing lessons with Mr. Gao Long.  Besides drawing, Ava also has been learning piano since age 5.  She hopes to bring closeness to earth by her drawing and music.

 

Ava speaks about her art: We are here to celebrate life, the earth, the sun, the rain, the trees, and other living beings, which are the treasures mother nature selflessly offers to us. I want to cherish, remember the treasures through my drawing.
