Gallery Show and Window Display
The Vestibule, a unique family-owned space, is both a neighborhood gallery featuring local artists and an Airbnb accommodation.
When owners Kascha and John Snavely approached me, they were interested in showing my nature-themed illustrations from my Morning Sketching collection. The gallery’s primary presentation space features a mini window-display that passersby can enjoy even when the space is not open to the public. In addition to showing pieces from my existing series, I wanted to add something special for the space. The gallery is located near a secret beach in Seattle’s Ballard area, and I gathered specimens (driftwood, seaweed, and kelp) to draw as hanging artworks in a window installation. On the lower half of the window I painted line-drawings representing the tides that brought to shore the objects I collected and drew.
