Artists respond to place, that is, the intrinsic qualities that go beyond the simple facts to include the feel, spirit, history and vitality of a part of space that has living beings involved with it. We carve places from space by acts of daily living. We depict place by bringing into a work of art those same values. We want you to sense that place as we sense it, to carry away a part of that specific place along with an enhanced appreciation for it. We strive to capture place perhaps as explorers would: "the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." - T. S. Eliot.
Come by and see Downtown Bremerton, perhaps for the first time
