Cheri A. Ellis + Woven Gloaming Present New Work for the August ArtWalk

"Cheri A. Ellis is a self-taught artist, a cross disciplined artist who chose to learn the development of different mediums through a series of constant, self-created challenges."

"In 2003, Cheri began to make dresses.  A lifetime passion for art on paper, art on fabric, along with the intertwining of the female form and its metaphoric voice of feminine wisdom, inspired Cheri's desire to begin this new medium.  The designing and making of skirts, dresses, and coats, has become more than a personal expression.  In this medium came the idea of women taking back the connection to their own bodies by the wearing of hand-made art."

Breia Mallett of The Brush & Mallett, Showing at Venue for the August ArtWalk

Artist Breia Mallett has always had a love for creating and after finding herself constantly making little whimsical cards for her husband, Ryan - they thought it’d be a great idea if they started a card business.

Breia starts her cards with simple hand-drawn images and then scans the image to her computer to digitally create the touches of color that complete the illustrations. All printing is done on their own professional printer at home; then the cards are hand scored, folded, rounded corners trimmed and packaged by hand. Every card is lovingly handled from start to finish. Breia delights in coming up with fun ideas for cards and being able to share her creations with others through her art.

For this month’s artwalk, Breia will be expanding her card collection to include some prints as well as small, original paintings done in acrylic on wood blocks.

Julio Cesar Guerrero is Featured at Annie's Art & Frame for the August Art Walk

My name is Julio Cesar Guerrero. I’ve been raised in the Pacific Northwest since my parents immigrated here from Zacatecas Mexico when I was only three months old. Adapting to the U.S. culture has been easier for me than it has been for my parents, as I have naturally integrated with it. I have also seen the struggles of an immigrant first hand either it be the lack of assimilation to a new country or the challenge of communicating with a new world. Being a translator for my parents growing up as a child wasn’t easy, I was easily frustrated with myself for being caught in a conversation without words to be able to describe either or’s feelings. I would go throughout my day with that scenario imprinted in my head and in it I would create short experimental film clips of the feelings that were trying to be transmitted through me, which words could not fill. So, I started drawing those feelings on anything I could get my hands on.

As I create my art pieces I dig deep into the sincerity of who I am and my emotions in order to express the fragile complexities of an immigrant. Finding that which creates strength within us in order to adapt and survive in any given setting. The pieces I create are a buildup of different ideas and as I dig deeper into them I add more to what it wants to become or speak. Creating from whatever is at hand, screwing, nailing, painting and pasting. The most fun part of creating my artistic expression is the challenge of adapting to the integration of the different mediums and textures I use. Learning to appreciate the errors and the complimenting effects that are created out of the different materials is only the beginning of what the imagination can create.
