Susan Aurand
Alchemy Upstairs Downstairs
Susan Aurand creates oil paintings/ mixed media work, that have a strong visual appeal, with vibrant colors, familiar shapes, and fascinating miniature details. As they draw you in, you begin to seek out the stories that go along with the combinations of objects and images. 

Kathi Bond
In the Valley of Fire
Kathi Bond f feels a connection to, and passion for stone. Her creatures emerge from the stone taking on its colors, textures, inclusions. The stone’s history and appearance can also remind her of different places. Kathi says, “After mastering four languages, she is happiest letting the stone speak to her to do her most creative work!”

Heather Carr
“Shto Eta”, 16 x 20
Heather Carr’s paintings are inspired by manga and street art. Her imagined subjects can be cute and playful, as well as melancholic and the macabre. She often signs her paintings in Russian, recalling the time spent in Russia during high school and college. When she creates art, “I feel unstoppable, and can’t wait to see where the journey takes me.” 

Jean Hughes
“Potholes Lake with Sandhill Cranes”
Jean Hughes creates quilts that seem to draw upon her travels and experiences to many parts of the world, including Africa and the West Indies. They also speak something about home, as though she has brought fabric pieces from so many different places, and found a home for them.

Shoreline City Hall is located at 17500 Midvale Ave. N, Shoreline, WA 98133. For more information please contact the Arts Council by phone 206-417- 4645 or email
