www.marmotartspace.com Winner of The Inlander’s Best Of 2017 as the best gallery in the Spokane region, Marmot showcases the best of the best regional (and occasionally international) artists. Marmot is a marvelous little jewel, a classic “white-box”gallery in the hip Kendall Yards district of Spokane. The gallery hosted a solo exhibit of my work in February 2017, and has been showing pieces of my artwork on an ongoing basis since then.
www.terrainspokane.com Terrain is an awesome non-profit arts organization in Spokane that is “changing our region one artist at a time”. I exhibited my show “Neighborhood” in the Terrain gallery in April, 2018, and participated in Terrain 11 in October, 2018. Since its beginnings in 2007, Terrain has become a non-profit that now has three flagship events; Terrain, Bazaar, Uncharted and three flagship programs; Window Dressing, Range, and a permanent Terrain Gallery space as well as running an event space for performing artists.
www.yakimamakersspace.org/Gallery Yakima Maker Space believes that making things with others is a powerful creative engine, that learning by doing teaches better than a textbook, and that access to tools and a supportive community will launch the next generation of entrepreneurs in Yakima. The aspiration of the Yakima Maker Space Gallery is to promote the missing “A” in S.T.E.M. Education, by promoting artists that showcase the intersection of making, technology and fine art as part of their process and/or finished work. YMS hosted my exhibit “Revealing a Layered” in May, 2017.
www.artswest.org/gallery/ ArtsWest’s gallery is a generously-sized, C-shaped exhibition space [the open space in the “C” is ArtsWest’s theatre] that features work by contemporary artists from the Pacific Northwest region. I had the honor of being to create a collection of new and old artwork in the gallery for my show “Who We Are” in May, 2018. The exhibit was shown in conjunction with the production of the play “An Octoroon”, the work selected to complement and meditate on the themes and feel of the play.
www.spokanearts.org Spokane Arts represents the joint efforts of the 501C3 Spokane Arts and the City of Spokane’s Arts Commission, working together to amplify Spokane as the cultural hub and catalyst for the Inland Northwest through Arts leadership, advocacy, networking and support. I was fortunate to have a piece of mine selected for inclusion in the All Media Juried Exhibition 2018 at the Chase Gallery, and am included on the Artist Roster for Spokane Arts.
https://www.jansenartcenter.org Website for the Jansen Art Center in Lynden, WA. The Jansen Art Center is an amazing place for artists to create, teach, share, and engage the community of Lynden and Whatcom County in nearly all mediums of art, including art exhibits, performance, workshops, music and dance. The gallery hosted my show “Exploring What Lies Hidden” in October and November of 2016, which ran concurrent with a four month solo showing of my work at the Inn at Lynden.
http://renegaderedart.com Renegade Red Art Studio and Gallery is located in Hoquiam, Washington, on the beautiful Washington coast in Grays Harbor County. The Gallery is a 700 square foot professional exhibition space, focused on representing new and mid-career artists in the Pacific Northwest of varying backgrounds and media.
