ARTIST RECEPTION TO FOLLOW | August 10, 2019 5:00 pm
Kris Ekstrand is presenting her delicately abstracted landscapes and a continuation of her vibrant and energetic portraits of bird nests. Created in her studio on the banks of the Edison Slough in the Skagit Valley. Ekstrand’s paintings walk a line between abstraction and representation, skillfully drifting between the two.
Marceil DeLacy presents her hand-carved wooden sculptures, expertly carved and finely finished. Her work makes one contemplate the human connection to the animal world. In this exhibition DeLacy introduces surprising new subject matter.

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.
Patty Haller’s colorful and analytical paintings explore the beauty, order and chaos of the northwest forest. Andrew Vallee presents new wood and bronze sculptures, a shift towards representation. Man-made natural objects, derived from the shores of the Samish Bay.
