Artist Invitational

CAPERS is hosting the 2nd Annual Abstract and Ceramics Invitational on November 8th from 5-8pm. This invitational will feature 8 artists and 8 potters and their work will be available for purchase in-store.

One potter, Marie Turnow, is a nature lover and uses elements and designs from everyday life. “Amid the craziness of our big city culture, nature nurtures and continues to delight the senses. My work reflects the seasons, textures and Northwest beauty that I view right here in West Seattle. Her ceramics are food and dishwasher safe.

Similarly, Nicole Pepper of ModHome Ceramics is also inspired by her surroundings. “I love clay and all the functional and sculptural ways it holds. Clay can bring a connection to the Earth and warmth.” With her BFA from West Washington University, Nicole has been experimenting and finding her way ever since.  “Each piece here has been uniquely hand-crafted, inspired by nature and daily life. My hope is to bring joy into this modern world one piece at a time.

Tracy Madison took her first ceramics class in January of 2016, and she never looked back. Working as an art director and stylist in the photo world, she has been surrounded by inspiration her whole career. Only when she hand-formed her first platter did she realize it was her calling. She created her brand and company, Madisonware in 2016.

Along with ceramicists, the Invitational will feature local artists with abstract paintings and photographs. One of the 8 artists, includes photographer, Todd Kowalski. Todd began photography when he was in high school in the early 70’s. By commuting on bicycle, Todd is able to capture the ever fleeting moments that he comes across; this opens the spectrum to what he is able to photograph.

Another artist that will have their art available is Mary Parkes. Mary is a contemporary realism painter that captures joy in her paintings. Her work is done on clear glazed linen, canvas and regular linen. In her abstract paintings, she uses hints of color to brighten up the natural hues, like this painting titles ‘Swoosh’.

 

Last but not least, Diana Grant paints everything from still life to landscape to abstract. Diana is local, from Kirkland, WA and is most know for her achievements in landscape paintings. Her work is acrylic on canvas and ranges from bright colors to pastels.
