Ballard's Own Lina Raymond at Horseshoe for October

Underpainting of "Housekeeping on Seaview Avenue"

Lina Raymon   "Completed Housekeeping on Seaview Avenue"
Fresh out of a Southern California high school, I made my living as a window display artist, floral designer, and wig stylist before doing a 12-year stint as an actress on primetime television. While my son was in high school, I left acting and remodeled houses. When my son left the nest, I dove in with all that was in me as the inventor and founder of a non-dairy ice cream product line. When my popular product and busy, happy little company were confronted with an unavoidable corporate struggle, we won the battle but lost the war (that my company did not survive).

Unfortunately, my struggle to cope with that loss was only the first in a series of events and challenges that led to a lost decade. As I began to heal, I began painting again, and it was through art that I finally recovered.  I now keep my life as simple as possible and  I’ve never been more at peace.

Mixed Media Drawings & Paintings by Juliet Tada at Venue in October

Juliet Tada is a practicing artist in Seattle, Washington creating drawings, paintings, installation, and mixed media works. She enjoys experimenting with chance medium, texture, and three-dimensional components while painting on a horizontal plane. As a result, a viewer gets to interact with a bird’s eye perspective at eye-level.

Charcoal, ink, and graphite make up the main media for her work. She enjoys using charcoal for its ability to be multifaceted in texture and gradient. She uses a chromatic scale, which simulates a timeless elegance. The gesture, thickness, and structure of a line encompass the overall expression of her artwork.  Each piece of art manifests itself through the process in which it is created.

Downward momentum - in the form of splatter or winding pathways shaped by water droplets - becomes the starting point for most of her creations. Allowing a material to organically move or react to its environment causes an image of fluidity that is gentle to the eye. Using water and wet solvents demonstrates the power an element has over a composition. Water transforms and reshapes a medium within a piece, echoing its effect on the earth.

Also included in her show will be abstract renderings of the human figure. A trending beauty appears among her female representations. The eccentric use of hair acts as a staple characteristic within each drawing. Gold appears as an accent in her current body of work. A touch of sparkle against a black and white contour mimics the moon kissing the darkened sky.
