Pattern Seeking: One Way of Seeing Nature and Art

Nature is full of patterns - the way leaves grow from a twig, the way branches grow from a tree, the twist of a snail shell, the ripple of waves on a pebbled shore...
 
Nature's patterns are complexly layered and modified by light and shade, rain and drought, tides and wind. One way to better see what we are looking at is to tease out the individual patterns...
 
The artist representing nature chooses a dominant pattern and builds composition from it, creating a coherent work...

 

Boardroom Gallery Show

Wayne Foster

Since leaving WSU in 1965, I hadn't painted but very sporadically for about 45 years. After major back surgery in 2012, I decided to start painting again to keep my spirits up. I usually make my paintings from actual experiences, but I also sometimes use photographs.

Forces of Nature

The forces of nature are ever changing in our world. The Earth's natural forces include shape, elements, color and motion. Today we see our land and water drastically changing from these forces of nature.

Many of the glass pieces are created to reflect the forces of the ocean waves.  Others reflect the mountain streams and the forces the rivers have on our terrain.

Some of the pieces are representing the strength of the hexagon in nature through the honey comb.

Then you will observe the amazing Blue Heron and Nautilus shells in glass.

Concert

Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
September 16, 7-9 pm

Poulsbo based Ranger and the Re-Arrangers evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy Jazz. At the heart of their sound is Ranger's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations. The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, and the music of Django Reinhardt.
