Nightingale Gallery

After extensive design training, Pittsburgh native J. Craig Thorpe moved to Seattle where he started his own architectural illustration business. While his ink and water color renderings have interpreted design concepts for countless NW clients, Thorpe is known nationally for his oils of contemporary railroad themes. Amtrak used his painting of the Olympia, WA station on its 1993 national corporate calendar, opening the door to dozens of railroad commissions for noted clients such as Union Tank Car Co., General Electric and the White Pass & Yukon Route in Alaska. Recent Amtrak commissions include the Centennial paintings for Washington, DC Union Station and Glacier National Park. For the last 16 years, Thorpe has produced yearly calendar art for Alaska Marine Lines, the maritime company shipping barges of containers to Alaska. He also specializes in iconic NW scenes. Thorpe is primarily a landscape painter and even his industrial commissions set the subjects in their unique settings. Says the artist, " The haste, cynicism and expediency of our age has blurred an ability to see beauty. These images help people refocus." He combines a technical accuracy with a painterly style evoking an emotional response from the viewer: "That painting makes me want to be right there!"

So with love, creativity, and a vintage flair Deuce was born.” Jamie’s collection is a mix of new and vintage elements.

Daniela and Chris Shelton, who live in a cottage at the edge of the woods on an island in the Puget Sound, are Hasenpfeffer, Inc. They merge modernism with traditional craftsmanship to create their line of children's dolls. Semi-interlocking patterns result in more than just a friendly looking doll; these original shapes allow them to minimize waste material and use only remnants, discontinued or closeout fabrics, making for eco-friendly designs. Outfits for the dolls are often knitted by Ursula, Daniela's mom, who lives in Switzerland and scours stores for remnant yarn. All Hasenpfeffer dolls, bears and lambs are stuffed with hypoallergenic fiberfill made in the US.

Movement + Light. And a clean windshield. That’s how
Ben Scherer created this series of photographs. Each shot was taken from his car while driving through Seattle’s streets at night. The electric patterns come from a variety of different car and shutter speeds, camera positions, turns and bumps in the road. Vibrant lights from stores, bars, cars, buses, signs, and sometimes the slightest bit of daylight, provide raw and real color. While each shot is digital, they are not retouched. The series started as an effort to capture the unique nighttime energy of Seattle’s diverse neighborhoods. Scherer's inspiration was simply wanting to try using his camera to create art and his imagination to make the familiar seem extraordinary.
