Joey Bates often focuses on portraiture with an emphasis on facial expression. "In my down time I turn to figure studies. The pieces exhibited here are the result of several drawing sessions over the course of the past two years."

Bates received his BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design in 2005. His work has been shown in over 40 exhibitions along the west coast and appears in several private collections. To view more art and information check out the artist's website.

Artist Jenifer Rees has long worked in watercolor to create beautiful blends of color through repeated overlays in her landscape paintings. In recent years, she has experimented with using the medium more gesturally, through both wet and dry techniques, to create vivid and expressive images. Jenifer is drawn to outdoor subjects that reveal something about how they have been formed, and/or those subjects that create strong juxtapositions to their settings. Her current show, Gestures, features both scenes from her travels and studies of the beautiful madrone tree found here in the Pacific Northwest.
