Port Townsend Gallery features two artists this month

PORT TOWNSEND — The works of two artists featured this month at the Port Townsend Gallery explore natural themes using sand and wood.

The gallery, located at 715 Water St., is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The pieces are by Anne Schneider and Phillip Carrico. They can be seen at the gallery throughout November.

Schneider is a mixed-media collage artist whose work entails a process of layering papers with acrylic paints on substrates of canvas, wood boards or papers, according to a news release.

Following the layering, a process of adding transparent layers begins. After many layers of paint and papers and use of colors, a balance and dimensionality emerges in the work, according to the release.

One of Schneider’s featured pieces, “Dunes,” brings the colors and movement of sand to life, while another, “Stamp of Approval,” features old stamps, according to the release.

Carrico specializes in printmaking, which he studied at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, according to the release.

He does woodcuts and wood engravings that begin with a sketch that is transferred to a block of wood. From there, Carrico uses special tools to hand-carve the block and pulls original prints from the block.

He also does multi-colored prints with as many as 13 colors, which is a more precise and time-consuming process, according to the release.

Much of his work portrays the Alaska wilderness and wildlife.

Port Townsend Gallery is a fine arts cooperative gallery featuring area artists.
