The Gallery at Town Center Presents: 
Ethan Lind and Kelsey Skordal
Through February 16, 2019

The Gallery at Town Center is exhibiting a selection of works by painter Ethan Lind and painter Kelsey Skordal. See these works and the creations of over 80 other local artists during Gallery at Town Center hours: Tuesday – Saturday, Noon to 5pm.

Ethan Lind

After years of drawing and painting Lind was given an etching press by the widow of a printmaker. As an enthusiast of Western and Eastern ink drawing and painting styles he finds a natural attraction to the bold lines of etching and the soft tones of aquatint. Once he learned the craft, he has never looked back.

He finds inspiration from artists of the past from Goya to Gorey. Artists who understood the simplicity of black ink on white paper. He focuses on the everyday. What appears mundane becomes spiritual – the utility pole is an abstract sculpture. Lighthouses are fortresses, trees, philosophers.

“Musicians are common subjects of my etchings and I explore the similarities of music and the visual arts. In the arts, as in life, meaning is found in relationships. Relationships of musical notes, relationships of shapes, and relationships between human beings.”

Kelsey Skordal

Kelsey Skordal is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer who grew up in western Washington, where she has recently returned to after five years in Colorado.

Her work examines the ideas of surveillance, voyeurism, and the ever-present cell phone camera through candid portraiture of close family, friends, and coworkers. She primarily works in oil paint or charcoal, but has recently been exploring mixed-media pieces consisting of layered acrylics, markers, and color pencils.

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.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to cultivate creativity and inspire our community through the arts.
