Selected Works

Sandy Evans “I love the freedom and spontaneity acrylic gives me as I develop each piece of art. I start with color as I pour or mix, usually using bright, vibrant hues and letting them speak for me.”

Thomas Willing “Working with both native and exotic species of woods, I seek to find the visual magic within the form of each piece of timber that is waiting to be revealed.”

Shelly Durica-Laiche “I collect salvaged material from steel yards, from the side of the road, through my travels or by donation. Scrap metal has an embedded history and character that folds into each design. I’m inspired by the unique shapes of these found treasures.”

Sandy Visse “My children are grown and gone and still I play with clay, often now with my grandchildren. Most of my work is figurative and whimsical in nature as my love of animals and folk art find expression in my sculptures.”

“Photography is for me a dance with nature. It is the immersion in a landscape and the sense of being lost in the moment, where the passing of time goes unnoticed. It is the serendipity of capturing a moment in time that becomes a timeless moment.”

Denise Joy McFadden “My goal is to paint directly, freshly, and simply onto the dampened paper and let the water do the work. I enjoy watching the colors mingle, drip, and separate in unexpected ways.”

Meet the Artist: Lisa Wiser "The foundation of my work is a keen interest in the concept of structure in both the natural and built environment. My primary interest is capturing landscape scenes that visually articulate my emotional response upon approaching the scene."

Meet the Artist: Whistle Post Pottery "A whistle post is a sign marking the spot where a locomotive engineer has to sound the train's horn or whistle. Our home and studio is within earshot of the Union Pacific mainline and the refrain of the passing trains is the soundtrack to much of our waking and sleeping lives. It seemed fitting to salute it with our name."

Meet the Artist: Jani Hoberg "I continue to add and subtract line and textures, print the results, and rework the plate until the image is appealing to me. My images come from objects or locations that are near and dear to me. They can be from collections of items kept in my studio or a treasure from a vacation spot."

Meet the Artist: Chuck St.John "I mostly focus on landscapes. I periodically pick an area of the Pacific Northwest for plein aire painting trips, where I work on multiple small paintings that I can develop further in the studio."
