The show, curated by gallery assistant Samantha Frank (a group member), includes painters, sculptors, fiber & textile artists, ceramicists, printmakers and photographers, all connected somehow to UW's class of 2013.
This talented group is dominated by textile artists Samantha Frank, (loom-based) Shaana Hatamian (dyed and hand-painted), and Angie Prince (cross-stitch and embroidery). Jolene Thayer (ceramic artist), Lisa Town (mixed media and photography), Samantha Serradell (printmaker) and Mike Prince (painter and printmaker) round-out the group.
Combining loom-woven fabric with embroidery and mixed media, Ms. Frank produces clothing and accessories that relate to her Swedish ancestry, with added contemporary twists. Ms.
Hatamian, of Persian origin, employs traditional patterns and colors in a painterly way, producing tableau-like textiles. Ms. Prince uses loom and hand-stitching to create figurative imagery more
common to drawing and painting. Ms. Town combines media to create organic sculptural forms and also works as a photographer. Samantha Serradell works in intaglio, linocut and monoprint to
focus on plant life. Mr Prince takes a pop/op approach to high gloss enamel paintings that borrow from nature and from the great American modernists before him. Ms. Thayer, the lone ceramic
artist, creates figurative works that deal with the subconscious and inner struggles.
