It is hard to believe, but Puget Sound Book Artists is celebrating 5 years as an organization. In honor of this most auspicious occasion, members were asked to contribute a page to a 5th Anniversary book. Throughout the summer, we will be adding new images to showcase the 5th Year Celebration Book. The 5th year book project is coordinated by An Gates, PSBA Board member and lead curator of the 2015 exhibition team.
“My approach to making art is direct and uncomplicated. I harvest the essence of plants, animals, people and places to transcend time and place. I layer the personal with the universal, the local with the far-flung, and the mundane with exotic. Observational drawings, random marks and images captured in photographs are all grist for my art making. Ultimately, shape and color dominate.”
