Join us in our Studio Workshop for Ballard Art Walk this month on July 13th from 4 to 6pm, for an opening reception featuring the water colors of Etta Lilienthal.
Works on paper created using traditional watercolors, semi-precious earth mineral
pigments and pen & ink using the metaphor of the River: a connecting thread between two points, horizontal and vertical, visible and invisible.
"Over the past 6 years I have worked in the medium of light sculpture, primarily in collaboration with other visual artists. After a recent artist residency in Iceland where I reconnected to my painting roots, I began an inquiry into combining my light sculpture practice with my painting practice. My small watercolors works explore the way light connects the space in-between the land and sky, the place we humans regularly inhabit."
Etta's artistic mission is the monumental work of capturing, studying, and evolving the human condition; her deepest desire is to write an unspoken, visual language of connection, providing an alternative way for people to communicate with one another through color, light, space, movement and stillness.
