Port Townsend Art Gallery artists in CVG show

BREMERTON — Artwork by three members of the Port Townsend Art Gallery was selected for the 14th Annual Collective Visions Gallery show which opened Saturday in Bremerton.

Mitchel Osborne, Margaret Woodcock and Phillip Carrico competed with artists statewide.

More than 550 images from 295 artists were submitted of which juror Michael D’Alessandro, exhibits director of Northwind Art in Port Townsend, chose 130 pieces for inclusion in the show.

The CVG Show, which will be exhibited through Feb. 27, is an all-media statewide juried art competition for photography/digital, two-dimensional and three-dimensional art.

It has grown to become one of the largest and most competitive juried art shows in the Pacific Northwest region with submissions from cities and towns throughout Washington state.

Over $9,000 in cash and purchase prizes will be awarded to winners in the several categories.

Local artists

Woodcock’s “Roadside Composition” is a piece developed from a combination of photos taken on a walk, hence its name.

The base layer is collaged music sheets, text, and botanical illustrations.

Acrylic color in gel or glaze medium was applied loosely to set the collage “and start the movement of color,” the artist said. “The finish layer of color is oil in cold wax medium and glazes applied with knives and brushes until it feels whole to me.”

Carrico’s “Fire Bell Tower” is an original reduction linoleum print of an historical landmark in Port Townsend.

The print depicts the only fire bell tower of its kind in the United States.

It was built in 1890.

Osborne’s “Split Screen” is an architectural study that “emphasizes the lines and the color of the structure as its lighting creates a feeling of volume,” he said.

The Port Townsend artworks are joined at the show by work from Sequim artists David C. Willis, Katherine Loveland and Steve Wry.
