Catherine Gill and Darlene Morgensen

Seattle painter/printmaker Catherine Gill and Chimacum pastelist Darlene Morgensen will exhibit a group of landscapes depicting Alaska and the Northwest in Jeffrey Moose Gallery, 1333 5th Ave, Seattle, from August 2nd through September 14th. A reception for the artists will be held on Friday, Aug 2nd from 5:30 to 8:30 PM at the gallery. Ms. Gill is well known in the Seattle area as an artist and art teacher. She has lived in the Northwest for 20 years, painting scenes of the waterfront in the Puget Sound and traveling to paint and teach in Alaska every summer. Woks in the exhibition come from this year's Alaska journey. Her primary medium is a unique blend of watercolor and pastel on paper (the combination of the media creates a unique surface), but she also makes monotype prints and works in oil on canvas.

Ms. Gill is a co-founder of Art Partners, a non profit group organizing artist's exchanges with recent programs in Kuwait, Ireland and China. Past Northwest Pastel Society president Darlene Morgensen focuses on scenes from out of the way spots on the Olympic Peninsula, and the Puget Sound, often near her home. Her dramatic sunsets and skilled renderings of cloudy skies put her in a league with the most sensitive of landscape artists. This group of paintings will provide several "panoramic" images, long horizontals about two by painter/printmakernear Yakima.

Monoprint collage on plexiglass

Mr. Loving, who has worked with legendary black printmaker Bob Blackburn, taught a class on monoprinting at Pratt Fine Art Institute earlier this year and gave a lecture in Rainier Square in March. This event turned out to be standing room only!

Mr. Loving has a strong reputation as a "Color Constructionist" and a collage artist for his lyrical, assymetrical assemblies of acrylic-painted paper cut into fantastical shapes, often favoring spirals, and mounted on plexis glass layers. Some more famous white aritists, including Frank Stella, have "approprited" several of Mr. Lovings most noteworthy stylistic mannerisms....

Born in Detroit, with a MFA from the University of Michigan in '65, Loving shot to the attention of the art world when, four years after graduating, he had his first solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1969). Since then, he has exhibited in four additional Whitney exhibitions and shown at the Metropoolitain Museum of Art, The Detroit Art Institute, several international invitationals and scores of smaller museums, university and college shows. Three NEA grants, a Gugenheim Fellowship and a Joan Mitchell Award stand among his recognitions. He recently completed an enormous commission for New York City's MTA, a group of industrial strength stained glass windows throughout the 'East New York' subway stop at Broadway Junction in Brooklyn.
