Port Townsend School of Arts begins juried show

PORT TOWNSEND — “One of a Kind,” a show and sale of small works by more than 40 regional artists, opens Monday at the Port Townsend School of the Arts Grover Gallery.

The exhibit will run through December at the gallery at 236 Taylor St. All sales benefit the exhibiting artists and Port Townsend School of the Arts.

In-person gallery hours are from noon to 5 p.m. Thursday through Monday or by appointment. Selections from the show can be viewed online at PtArts.org.

“One of a Kind” features 2D and 3D art including wearable fashion, fiber arts, ceramics, jewelry, paintings, prints, cards and more.

This juried show includes art by artists from all over the region.

Erica Iseminger’s work is on display at the Port Townsend School of the Arts exhibit.

There is sculpture by Addy Thornton, Michele Soderstrom, Theadore Olson and Tininha Silva; jewelry by Anna Frank, April Ottey, Janice Speck, Miranda Lynn, and Rachel Katz; illustration by Rick Myers, Chris Stevenson, and Darsie Beck; fiber and wearable art from Cathie Wier, Erica Iseminger, and Barbara Ramsey.

Also, paintings by Andrea Woods, Carl Jackson, Carolyn Woods, Chris Witkowski, Meg Kaczyk, Craig Hester, David Moore, Elisabeth Mention, Julie Read, Kate Flores, Kim Kopp, Larry Crockett, Linda Okazaki, and Meg Lodes as well as home goods by Eric Hanson and Virginia King and photography by Kerry Tremain.

Members of the Port Townsend chapter of the Urban Sketchers will present framed illustrations from their varied collections.

“This is an exhibit of many colors, sizes, shapes and textures! I am so impressed with the variety and the artistry that is truly one of a kind,” Grover Gallery Manager Toby Warren said in a press release.

“All pieces are available for purchase to take home right away, perfect for the gift-giving season.”

Several of the exhibiting artists are new to the gallery, including Brazilian-born textile artist Tininha Silva.

“Weaving intuitively is at the core of my creations,” Silva said. “I am always pursuing what feels right, exploring abstracted shapes of sea life, coral reefs, seaweed and anemones.”

Some familiar gallery artists are presenting new work in expanded genres. These include fiber artist Barbara Ramsey.

“Over the past several years, I have become interested in botanical printing: making patterned fabrics using natural plant matter that I gather and process myself,” Ramsey said.

“These botanical prints have become the basis for purses, pillows, and sometimes quilts. I’ve augmented my existing sewing knowledge by learning about straps, buckles, webbing, and all manner of purse hardware. My goal is to use fabric, plants, and notions to create 3-dimensional objects that are not only beautiful but useful.”
