Kim Tingley and Barb Ogden, of Windermere Real Estate are proud to present: GiniLawson local artist/Terry Holder, local musician

Gini Lawson:Artist Statement:

My work is informed by my fascination with human relationships - the real,imagined, and wished-for. The inspiration for my paintings comes from thequickly composed, ubiquitous family snapshot: everyone in “camera face,”smiling and happy. Through close examination and subtle manipulation of facialexpressions, body language and composition, these seemingly innocent mementosconvey underlying psychological and emotional tensions that tell quite adifferent story from that which was intended.

Terry Holder is a singer/songwriter that delivers her emotionally driven songsthrough her evocative, tender voice around lyrics that take you on a journeywith flashes of abandon heartbreak, love, and self awareness.

Wallflower Shooting Gallery June Artist Liz Moody



Liz Moody 2009"Burgeoning Blossoms/Fairy Tales"Artist Statement:


Liz Moody is inspired by her mother's old vogue dress patterns, the magic and texture in the pages of vintage children's books, and the profusion of blossoms when spring finally arrives in the Northwest. Liz uses acrylic paint, India ink, collage, and pastel to build up layers of texture in each piece. She loves brilliant, saturated color and playful organic shapes that reveal small mysteries of text and paint.

8 Limbs Yoga June Artist Jennifer Jenkins


Jennifer Jenkins: "My area of concentration over the last three years has been composition-that based on line and shape, but also color and color interaction. I am always eager to discover how the these elements effect and react to one another, and am frequently finding myself not painting ON the canvas, but having a dialogue WITH it. It is this dialogue that keeps me coming back again and again."

Twilight June Artists Group Show


"ART NIGHT" GROUP SHOW @ Twilight in the Junction

Featuring: Michael Alm, Joey Bates, Liz Brown, Angielena Chamberlain, Susan Cole, Chris Crites, Christian French Claire Johnson, David Kane, Joel Lee, Rich Lehl, kelly Lyles, Tim Marsden, Jeff Mihalyo, Scott Nacke, Demi Raven, Rebecca Raven, Phil Stoiber. What is Art Night?

Art Night is a group of Artists (capital A) who meet on Thursday evenings to create, discuss and gossip about Art (another capitol A). The idea came about when the original members (god only knows who they were or are anymore) felt day jobs and other responsibilities were making the making of Art a tad too solitary. The idea was to put aside one night a week where we could get together and give ourselves an evening of making art and cover some social bases at the same time. Wine and beer were not just allowed, but actively encouraged to lubricate the creative process. Going back at least six years now, the original group was small, numbering around eight members. Since then the group has grown in size to over forty people "officially" on the Art Night list. To be fair, not everyone on the list has actually participated in Art Night in any way other than being on the list, but there is a group of 25-30 people who regularly attend a Thursday night. The more likely gathering consists of 10-15 core members who bring something to work on that evening.
This is about as casual an art group as is possible. There are no dues, no selection process (another member's word is good enough), no adherence to a particular school of thought, no stylistic restrictions and not even a requirement to participate. This, of course, leads to the question "What do these people have in common?" and the answer is "Not a bloody thing!" barring the desire to make art and the commitment to support others in doing the same. It's a big art world (small a) out there and there is room for many approaches. There is, however, safety in numbers.
