Nancy Bishop-Harvey, House Fly, Soft pastel on paper

Nancy Bishop Harvey

Nancy’s work is diverse, an eclectic mix of various mediums and styles through which to create an impression of something. Her process involves research, sketching in the field, imagining, and letting the creative process take over. Nancy studies many of the insects with magnifying glasses, and observes birds as close to them as she can get.

Her work has been exhibited locally and nationally, including at Lowell Art Works, Shoreline Arts Festival, and Chocolate Church Arts Center Gallery (Bath, Maine).

Michael Caci, Quantum 6m, Mixed Media

The Quantum series was inspired by a Northwest crow. Michael began to contemplate an ongoing evolution in human creation mythology. These mixed media works synthesize painting, photography and digital processes.

Michael is a Seattle based artist whose artwork has been featured in many exhibitions locally and nationally, including the Schneider Museum of Art of Southern Oregon University in Ashland, the Ceres Gallery in New York City, Expressions Gallery in Berkeley, CA, and the Gary Manuel Gallery in Seattle. His work is in private and corporate collections, including the Marriott Waterfront Hotel in Seattle.

Martha Dunham, Pipefish, Locknut wire, fabric and thread

Martha trained as a research scientist studying how animal behavior relates to the environment. While writing her university dissertation, she began making sculpture and has been creating art ever since. Whether working with metal, wood, or wire, she focuses on abstracting the qualities that make each subject an individual.

Martha has exhibited in numerous exhibitions including at Fremont Abbey, Art/Not Terminal, Big Rock Garden Park, and Peace Arch Park.

Antoinette Hippe, Heron, Acrylic on Canvas

Antoinette was born and raised in Seattle, living in Ballard and Greenwood most of her life. She started her henna career, after apprenticing with a local henna artist in 2001. While working in henna, she developed her artistic style, which became strongly influenced by traditional Indian and Middle Eastern henna designs. Henna is traditionally a temporary art form. By transferring to canvas and acrylic, Antoinette has made permanent the intricate and delicate adornments used for centuries to beautify the human skin.

In 2011, Antoinette opened a physical studio location in Greenlake, The Henna Shop on Latona.

Jennifer Leigh, View from Above, Photograph

Jennifer is an award winning nature photographer. Growing up in Washington and traveling around the world inspire her to appreciate the beauty and diversity of the natural world around her.  Her photographs are not digitally manipulated, and are all made in their natural settings and only of animals in the wild.

She studied photography from an early age. And after graduating from Washington State University in 2005, she set off on her mission to preserve the world around her. Jennifer is a published photographer recognized for her attention to detail and masterful compositions.

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