Monotypes and Collages of Nancy Reithaar will be Shown at Domanico Cellars Winery & Tasting Room for the August ArtWalk

"I am a printmaker with a painter’s sensibility. Monotype is a technique with allows for a painterly, colorful and spontaneous approach to creating images. Animals fascinate me and provide me with a rich source of forms, textures and expressions to work with. 

The combination of monotype and collage allows me to compose and adapt in response to the unique subject. When I let go of total control of the process, it is clear which elements should be cut away and which should be enhanced with texture, color, and light. 

The process becomes exciting as I discover the relationships between a shorebird on the beach, for instance, and the image in my mind, the paintbrushes, the press, the paper, and the combination of ink colors that faithfully express the bird’s individual characteristics and universal beauty."

The Photographer Erynn Rose will be Featured at Venue for the August ArtWalk

Erynn Rose, Photographer

Erynn Rose started taking pictures in the early 90’s, mostly because he was surrounded  by a family of photographers who he felt were always taking pictures of the wrong thing. He picked up the camera to show them what they were missing. Now he can be found wandering Seattle with a variety of digital and film cameras to try and capture Seattle in all her glory. He specializes in tilt-shift* views of the city, making it look like a detailed architectural model. You may have seen his work in Seattle Magazine, or Where Seattle books and maps.

 *What is tilt-shift? Tilt-shift imposes a fake depth of field on the image, resembling what you would see in a close-up image of small objects, tricking the eye and making it look like a miniature scene. This is achieved either by tilting the lens off the body, leaving just a line of the image in focus, or in post-production blurring all but a tight section of the image.
