Don Lee's 'Folds & Shadows' Woodmapping Show

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

On our walls until August 31st, Don Lee's newest woodmapping show, Folds & Shadows.


This show introduces two new wood map series created by this local maker. “Folds” is a modern tapestry, created with wood and fabric to make a visually stunning and tactile map.

The delicate profiles and geometries form the “Shadows” series, representing some of the many map projections used in cartography.

Woodmapping is a creation by Don Lee. Each map is beautifully handcrafted with materials locally sourced and available in a variety of sizes and wood species. 

Stop in to see it this month!

Jeni Lee

Posted by Julie Beckett on

This Portland based visual artist creates serene emotive works using paint and rainwater.  For this series, Jeni carried the originals in and out of the rain as she built up the layers of color.

Each original has now been turned into a limited edition giclee print, numbered and signed by the artist.

In this second series, Jeni used rainwater collected at her studio to mix the paints.

We love the colors and the mood these ethereal pictures create.

Posted by Julie Beckett on

Julianna Swaney is an artist and illustrator living in the Pacific Northwest. She finds inspiration in fairy and folk tales, as well as animals, classical music, and houseplants. She creates her drawings and illustrations with pencil, watercolor, and gouache.

Each piece invites the viewer into the world of Julianna's imagination, which seems like a fascinating (and often adorable) place to live.

This lovely locally made jewelry line features organic shapes in brass, silver and oxidized sterling silver.
Kiersten's jewelry often features tiny details of silver droplets that mix among delicate chains and more earthy brass elements.
