VIRGINIA SUMNER, FEATURED ARTIST. Virginia Sumner will be displaying the Color and Horizon series of mixed media work. These are large bold paintings in a vibrant pallet. When exploring medium and design, Virginia is interweaving curiosity and perception, taking a step forward while holding her breath. Each piece, each series, builds on the last, providing a glimpse of the future. You can see more of Virginia’s work here: www.VirginiaSumnerArt.com
BRITTANY WHITMAN, FEATURED CRAFTER. Brittany finds her muse in the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty. An artist and crafter of many mediums such as clay, acrylic paints, hand etched glass, painted agates, photography and jewelry, her art is ever evolving. Her masks are from live leaves gathered while on her daily walks with her husband, young son and dog through the Tualatin Nature Park in Beaverton.
