The Gallery at Town Center Presents: Gina Grey and Yuka Petz April 4 – May 13, 2017


The Gallery at Town Center is exhibiting a selection of works by Photographer and Digital Media Artist Gina Grey and Mixed Media Artist Yuka Petz, opening April 4, 2017. See these works and the creations of over 90 other local artists during gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday, Noon to 5pm.

Gina Grey is an artist who works with photography and digital media. She examines the organization, translation, preservation, and degradation of data, mind, and matter through the lens of eccentric genius, visual illusion, and aircraft anatomy. She distills complex, yet seemingly mundane systems to their absolute rudiments and finds new ways to rebuild them such as breaking photographs down pixel by pixel or dissecting language letter by letter. This is followed by a careful reconstruction that has manifested as digital collage or photographs printed on paper, a sculptural object in space or an animated sequence. She graduated with a BA from Columbia College Chicago and an MFA from the University of Washington. She has shown her work internationally including exhibitions in Chicago, Seattle, Australia, Hungary, Italy, and Scotland. She has been an artist in residence in numerous programs including the Burren College of Art, Kala Art Institute, Women’s Studio Workshop, and Oregon College of Art and Craft.

Yuka Petz is a visual artist working in a range of media, including but not limited to book arts, printmaking, papermaking, and physical computing. She received her MFA in Book Arts/ Printmaking at University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and her BFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design. Yuka studied papermaking at the Awagami Factory in Japan and at Dieu Donne Papermill in New York. She co-founded SIFT, an interdisciplinary book arts organization in New Orleans. Yuka has been a member of Antenna Gallery in New Orleans and the Board of Directors at Seattle Center for Book Arts.

Her work has been exhibited in the U.S. and internationally, including the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, the Corcoran Gallery, Jishibi Gallery Nike in Tokyo, and the Minnesota Center for the Book. Yuka’s artist books are collected by several public and university libraries.

The Gallery at Town Center is a program of the Shoreline - Lake Forest Park Arts Council and is located inside the Lake Forest Park Town Center on the lower level. 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155.
