The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline present “I Make therefore i am”, a new exhibit featuring printmakers, photographers, and potters.

Christine creates her monotypes by building up layer upon layer of translucent colors. The process mirrors the repetitive nature of daily life, and as she goes through rolling, inking and printing, the overlapping and the intertwining create beautiful and spontaneous surprises. The color palettes and the shapes come from her background as a Designer and the naturally vibrant mossy greens, slate blues, and rusty oranges are from the lush Northwest surroundings. Christine is a member of Seattle Print Arts.

Christopher’s works include reduction woodcut prints, contemporary sculpture, water color painting and digital photography. The 2D subject matter conveys specific places or objects. Recent works have become larger and more lyrical. The work is like a documentation of his life and experiences as an artist, incorporating ephemera – lists, notes, maps and calendars. Christopher holds an MFA from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He has exhibited extensively in the US.

Colleen works in traditional and non-traditional methods of mono prints and mono types. Her work reflects the lines and shapes she sees, like the carefree lines of a rowboat or the grid of an old Chinese ledger. These shapes and lines are the basis for juxtaposition and combinations of color. Her recent work “Afterimages” is a collection that reminds her of the colors, feelings and patterns of the islands of Indonesia. Colleen exhibits regularly on the West Coast. 

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, Tatyana demonstrated exceptional talent for artistic expression at an early age. She earned a Master’s in Architecture from the University of Architecture and Engineering in St. Petersburg. She participated in numerous art shows, and experimented with watercolor, pastel, and oil. She later developed her unique sensual style in engraving and lithography. The mainly black and white graphics, with the occasional splash of color, communicate her passion for life and art. She is an active member of Seattle Prints Arts, Vernissage Art Gallery and Gallery One. 

Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Photo Contest Winners

Photographers of all ages and skills were invited to participate in “Summer in the Garden” Photo Contest. This year’s winners include Walter Zamojski, whose photo was cited by the judges as, “A stunning shot of an almost incandescent, solitary cyclamen amidst a carpet of oxalis.” The Garden has become a venue for the arts in Shoreline, hosting permanent and temporary sculpture, and events like the Garden of Creativity and the Solstice Stroll.

The Clay Club provides an opportunity for students to study the art of ceramics and explore a wide range of technique, form, surface and design. It also sponsors workshops, seminars and exhibits, and builds a social and creative bridge between the college campus and community. Artists in this show include Adrian Gomez, Ava Cromwell, Chris Scamehorn, Ed Neff, Helma Welles, Jackie Victoria, John Armstrong, Kim Wratten, Kylee Hutchison, Peggy Hill, and Richard Lawson.

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