In the Art Bar: Clare Tatarsky

I cannot remember a time when I did not make art. I grew up in a family where art was part of everyday life. My mother sewed clothing and dolls, my father made dioramas, my sister took fabulous photos, and my brother made stop action films. Art is still part of my daily life.

The paintings in this show combine my love of pattern with Doodles collected from a variety of sketchbooks.  The sculptures are mostly extensions of the creatures that appear in my paintings.

In the Art Bar: Addy Nydegger

"I didn't know I could paint until nursing school. I was recently married, living in a dark dreary basement apartment. Since I was too poor to buy wall furnishings, I decided to make my own. I sat down with a blank canvas and realized I could paint! Since then, I have experimented with different styles and techniques. I hand-mix all my colors from the primary colors: red, yellow and blue, along with black and white. 

I create whatever I think is beautiful, whether it be a portrait, animal, or even a single color. My artwork challenges me, giving me moments of clarity, frustration, and at times, euphoria. I thank God for my artistic abilities and for the precious beauty of the natural world around us."

Addy Nydegger is a registered nurse and proud Skagitonian. She and her husband Kyle have two perfect cats, and have had the opportunity to visit 49 National Parks. Alaska is next on their list.

Meet Addy at an Artist Reception on Friday, January 12th from 5:30-7:30 PM.

In the Art Bar: Bill Ball - Fireball

Bill Ball is an artist who constantly explores in all directions to find the path of the healing process in his creative work.  He works from a pure sense of artistic endeavor running fast and standing still with strong images and designs. He is open to whatever presents itself.

Bill surprises us with ideas we overlooked or never connected with. His courage in pushing the technical aspects of his media to express the raw ideas is inspiring.

"Meet the Artist" at a reception on December 30, 2017 prior to the showing of "Loving Vincent".  5pm to 7:15 pm

THE DIOBSUD CREEK SERIES: Oil Paintings by Paul Blum

I have been painting in oil now for 9 years, and my work has evolved from paintings of Mt. Baker and the Cascades and mask-like faces to paintings influenced by a weekend with my wife and friends in a cabin near Marblemont along the Diobsud Creek, in the rainforest.  The sunlight shattered by the thick canopy of the Fir and Cedar, the night of wonderful music we all made, and the moonlight all had a lasting affect on me.  I’m really enjoying my new style.
