The Flex Gallery
This flexible space provides us the opportunity to highlight new and experimental work, as well as gems from past shows. Housed in an original classroom of the circa 1900 Edison School Boys Workshop. This room has been preserved in its original turn-of-the-century condition. Ranging from a body of work from one artist to a mix of all of our gallery artists, this space is fluid with something new to see every visit.
FROM THE EXHIBIT
Tricia Stackle is an artist/designer, living and working in the Skagit Valley in Washington. Inspired by simple, geometric shapes, bold colors, and tactile materials, she is an artist and educator committed to rethinking the way people live with and relate to art and design. She is drawn to the dance between form and function and interested in creating artwork that invites both playful and therapeutic interactions for people of all ages. Whether making furniture, soft sculpture, home textiles, or mixed-media drawings, quality craftswomanship is at the forefront of her ethos of making.
