Monica Bretherton & BethAnn Lawson (Oct 22 - Dec 4)

After wild adventures in the underground art scene of Denver, Monica Bretherton completed her BFA at the Statue University of New York at Purchase.  She then worked in the film and financial industries, but has now returned to the daily practice of art.

Monica talks about her art:

I am inspired by living things.  Chickens are a particular favorite because of their constant movement and variety.  Whether it is the intensity of a rooster confronting real or imagined dangers, the diligence of a hen in pursuit of food, or a sociable grooming session, their concerns and ours are not that far apart.

BethAnn Lawson is a modern-impressionist painter who lives and works in Seattle, Washington. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, she was taught by and is heavily influenced by her surrealist painter-father, who was a founding member of the San Francsico Street Artist Association. After graduating from the Institute of Design in San Francisco, she moved to Seattle and spent over three decades as a textile designer, graphic designer and illustrator, but returned to her love of painting after the passing of her father in 2011. 


BethAnn talks about her art:

Through my large paintings, I'm able to play harder, expressing thoughtful, bold, colorful images and concepts without parameters. I can lose myself for hours inside of each one as I take apart the images and carefully put them back together emphasizing colors, rhythms and patterns, bridging the gap between abstraction up close and realism from a distance. 

I am always striving for that delicate balance between industry and nature, between meticulous and impetuous, between painting as a physical object and invoking a redolent memory. Fascinated by people and design, I hope to capture little glimpses of life containing whimsy, the secrets of strangers, and the amazing architecture of both nature and man.

Andy Ye (Sept 22 - Nov 17)



I’m 12 years old. My parents came from China. I received my elementary education at Eton school, and I’m currently studying as a seventh grader at Eastside Prep school. I won the following awards:

2010 Washington Overseas Chinese Children Art Competition 2nd Place
China Tomorrow Education Foundation Art Contest 2014, Grade 3~4 3rd Place
Excellent work of the Children Group, organized by the Taiwanese Compatriots Association
CTEF 2015 Art Contest, Impression Culture and Tradition Award


Andy speaks about his art: I remember as a kid, I loved to draw pictures. My parents sent me to learn drawing and sketch at the studio of Miss Zhang’s. In 2014, I started as a student of a Master, Mr. Gao, at Lynnwood. In past, these two teachers have helped build up the foundation for my painting lessons. I’m extremely glad that I have been selected into this art exhibition, and I’d certainly think this is a huge encouragement for my study of fine arts in the future.
