Closing Reception and Artist Talk: Elizabeth M. Willey

History, folk tales, fairy tales, and mythology are the core inspirations for "Into Gold," an exhibition of mixed media encaustic work by artist Elizabeth M. Willey. She layers complex patterns with iconic images from folk and fairy tales, blending familiar and obscure narratives into one-of-a-kind art pieces. The results are deliciously magical interpretations of favorite stories and curious imagery of stories unknown. 

Please join us to view these works and celebrate with the artist on Saturday, October 27 and for an artist talk and closing reception 1pm-4pm.

Opening Reception for Amber Adkins: Separate / Illuminate

Join us for the opening reception for Separate / Illuminate, the second exhibition at Erica Popp Studios + Gallery. 

Seattle artist Amber Adkins creates mixed media work as an exploration of loss and resiliency. Her abstracted images of the natural world are are cut up and hand-stitched back together. The repairs in black linen are highlighted with gold thread, a nod to the Japanese art of Kintsugi. Her imagery and color pallet are reminiscent of Pacific Northwest Landscapes, and speak to feelings of separation and sadness, but also of healing and hope.
