Northwind Art opens new exhibit

PORT TOWNSEND — An exhibit featuring the work of two Port Townsend artists opens Friday at the nonprofit Northwind Art’s Jeanette Best Gallery.

The work of Dana Weir and Helga Winter will be on view at the gallery at 701 Water St., Port Townsend. An artist meet-and-greet is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday.

“There is a moment of revelation with each piece I create when I carve into the surface to uncover the layers below. It feels like remembering a profound dream,” said Weir in a press release.

“Forgotten words, hidden colors, and embedded objects form a new truth, one that was obscured but always present.”

The use of reclaimed and natural materials and found objects provide both artists an opportunity to look inside of things — to turn things inside out, reveal hidden layers, tear things apart only to rebuild them again, organizers said.

“Looking inside — at the center of things — is an underlying theme that I have pursued in my work as an artist,” Winter said.

“The process of my work is to uncover, to self-discover. The act of doing is my meditation.”
