Center of the Universe Network Care
2622 NW Market Street, Suite C
Eckhart Tolle in his Book The New Earth, writes that our first discovery of flowers was a re-introduction to our Selves as conscious and spiritual beings. Artist Leah Libow goes a step further saying it also woke us up to the sensual and feminine nature of all things in the universe.

In her show Ancient Configurations of Beauty and Harmony, Libow explores how pattern - from the naturally erotic design of flowers, to the design of stones spun on the surface of canvas, stains sunk into fabric, and the use of doilies, lace and silhouettes of people as stencils - spins itself into organic, abstract and expressive images of the feminine. Using acrylic, watercolor, tea, random stains, beeswax, found fabric, doilies, lace and thread, she creates images that are simultaneously subtle and sweet and wild and erotic.

Haven Salon
5810 24th Avenue NW
Artist Jenifer Rees has long worked in watercolor to create beautiful blends of color through repeated overlays in her landscape paintings. In recent years, she has experimented with using the medium more gesturally, through both wet and dry techniques, to create vivid and expressive images. Jenifer is drawn to outdoor subjects that reveal something about how they have been formed, and/or those subjects that create strong juxtapositions to their settings. Her current show, Gestures, features both scenes from her travels and studies of the beautiful madrone tree found here in the Pacific Northwest.

Art & Soul
2860 NW Market Street
For the past six years, Theresa Connolly has created multi-color reduction prints using linoleum and oil inks. The long process of carving and building up an image with layers of color gives her time to contemplate the things she loves like the moon, water and trees. Although detailed drawings are part of the preparation, she pares them down to a few lines on the linoleum to guide her. This approach allows her to work with the unexpected, after each layer of color. The result is a suggestion rather than a strict representation of a landscape or object. Recently, Connolly has started making extra prints to cut up and create collages, as well as adding watercolor silkscreen prints to her repertoire. Whichever method, she sees her prints as thank you notes to the people and elements in her world that sustain her.
