Port Townsend WA Art Exhibit

I’ve been ferrying around these last few weeks delivering paintings and attending openings.  Last night my family and I took the Keystone Ferry from Coopeville to Port Townsend for first Saturday in Port Townsend: a delightful town with a wonderfully vibrant group of art appreciators.  My works–seven paintings–were part of a group exhibit at the new Simon Mace Gallery titled Tasting Menu, Second Course (the first course was the inaugural December exhibit).  Christina and Brad Mace have created a space every artist dreams of exhibiting in on Taylor Street in Port Townsend that, last night,  was alive with energy and art lovin’.  I have the pleasure of sharing the walls with David Ridgway, Jeff Weekley and Victor Sandblom with sculptural works by Chris Theiss and David Eisenhower.  Many of these artists were in attendance for the opening and it was quite wonderful to meet and talk with them, as well as the really supportive and interesting local community.  Asked many times if I was local–I somewhat wished I were…  The exhibit will continue through January 30th.

      Sharon Kingston is a Northwest WA oil painter who uses the properties of her medium to create paintings that respond to both the atmosphere of her surroundings and poetry. This method of looking inward and outward and, in the moments of painting, finding her way on the canvas is her approach to creating paintings infused with poetry and the memory of landscape. The atmospheric element of her work is a testament to her desire to create spaces that are undefined, contemplative and allow room to reflect and accept uncertainty. Poetry, by nature open ended, is used both in the conceptualization of the work and as a part of the studio practice. The words of Rainer Rilke have informed Sharon’s work for many years, but she also turns to contemporary poetry when it resonates with her life. She uses layers of transparent color, reveals forms by concealing and unearthing pentimenti and suggests elements of landscape in her process.
