New Venue Joins the ArtWalk
2242 NW Market Street
Lesley Broadgate currently lives in Ballard with her husband, father, two kids and the family dog. When she was young she didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up, but she knew she would be a “maker of things.” Art training in college paved the way and Broadgate's work today addresses the family unit and her fascination with the family dynamics in America. It has a mysteriously familiar feel to it that leaves you stained with a new memory, almost as if it was an old memory or dream. Her work is straightforward and easy to identify with, as if your grandparents were telling you a story from their past. Broadgate has a clear obsession with old photographs and wallpaper like textures, which have this nostalgic quality that make you want to call your mom.
