Seredipity - Joanie Krug & Kim Murton
Gallery member Joanie Krug brings a series of paintings and drawings that embody the spirit and gesture of women -- in motion and with emotion. In these times of political chaos, gun violence, xenophobia, climate emergencies and more, seeking the precious moments in daily life is essential. "Serendipity," the ability to make valuable and unpredictable discoveries, refers to both Joanie's process and the content of her work. This exhibit reveals the result of her exploration of the use of the mediums as well as honoring the ongoing evolving connections among women.
Kim Murton, guest artist, is an Illustrator and Ceramic Artist living across the river in Vancouver, WA. “I make a drawing everyday “Come Hell or High Water” posting it online as a way of publishing. The drawings are a reflection of my daily happenings. They record a single thought or feeling, or are as mundane as a dog walk or a simple depiction of the moon or the weather. Making them is often the favorite part of my day, usually the last thing I do before going to sleep. I am often surprised at what they capture. I call the series “Worry of the Day” a visual journal that started in 2009. For this show I chose some of my recent favorites to print and frame, as well as printing a batch on fabric to sew and quilt. “
