The Gallery at Towne Centre Presents:
Playful Geometry
Featuring artwork by Joan Keith and Ellen Witebsky
January 3 – February 18, 2012

Winter’s short days can be dark and dreary; what better way to brighten your world than with art? “Playful Geometry,” opening January 3 at The Gallery at Town Center, will be the Gallery’s first show of the new year, and features the whimsical, colorful and bold works of Joan Keith (painting) and Ellen Witebsky (photography).

Witebsky’s series, “A Playful Nature,” invites viewers to see the familiar from a new perspective, and explores our compulsion to make changes to the natural world and the objects in it.

Keith’s pieces inspire imagination, with their simple shapes and pure colors speaking to our primitive nature.
Whether your aim is to purchase or simply to view these dramatic works on display, we hope you’ll come by! The new exhibit runs January 3 to February 18, 2012, alongside our enticing array of ongoing works on sale from eighty local artists.

The Gallery, operated by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, is located on the inside lower level of the Lake Forest Park Towne Centre, 17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155. Hours are 12 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. 

Chard - by Ellen Witebsky

"While I consider myself a serious photographer and digital artist (I am a 2007 graduate of the Photographic Center Northwest), I love quirky. I want my art, above all, to make people – including me – smile. Sometimes my sense of quirkiness is reflected in the subjects that I photograph. Sometimes it’s in the angles and perspectives from which I capture them. And, sometimes – as in A Playful Nature – I engineer it into my images. But, for all their quirkiness, my images never lose their beauty, their sensuousness, their pure esthetic. My art reflects not only how I see the world, but who I am."

"I delight in painting geometric shapes with bright colors. I strive to work these elements into a rhythmic dance with animation, balance, and harmony. Pure color and geometric shapes, I believe, can speak to our primitive side, inspiring spiritual and intellectual thought, yet evoking simple playfulness."

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture all of the arts in the community through programs and events, arts education, advocacy, and support for artists and arts organizations. Proceeds from the Gallery at Town Center help fund these programs and events.
