This month marks Root's one year anniversary in Ballard! Thanks to everyone for their continued support and dedication to health! To celebrate, artist Jennie Brott makes a return appearance with a fresh installation. Her new work includes:
Migration, which looks at how Humans affect the Birds’ ability to live.
Harlequin, a theatrical statement of fun and fantasy in a modern designers world, inspired by the film Children in Paradise and the elements of Mid-Century design.
Mod Girl, illustrating the feelings she gets even today from some of her favorite toys, with a visual language that anyone with similar childhood memories can understand.
Plus musical guests, Chase & Trinity, who will sweep you off your feet with their original pop arrangements consisting of drums, organ and guitar. Host Myllis Hiller kicks off the evening with plentiful hors d'oeuvres, beverages and prizes!

Kelly Rae Cunningham's paintings began with slabs of clay, ceramic glazes, and the same tools that she uses today to apply, layer, and scrape away paint. Falling in love with mixing colors and the smell of oil paint and turpentine, she turned from clay to canvas. Her work is strongly influenced by the materials she works with, not only their physical properties, but their history. Cunningham paints with many mediums as they lend different qualities to the process: oil for the saturation of color and patience; acrylic for speed; collage and layering for depth; and encaustics (oil and wax) for its tactile quality and similarity to working with clay. Her paintings employ layers of color, boldly worked with palette knives and brushes. In Cunningham's most recent series of work, fleurish, she explores traditional floral paintings through a more whimsical use of dot and line, energetic brush strokes, and bold colors.
