James Harris Gallery is pleased to present Northwest Pop Up, a temporary group exhibition of Pacific Northwest artists to celebrate the holiday season. This show features a choice selection of diverse art objects including ceramic pieces, small paintings, mixed media works, and works on paper that offer the perfect gift for any art lover. The exhibition runs for only two weeks, and includes pieces by participating local artists Claire Cowie, Jenny Heishman, Bob Jones, Fay Jones, Alwyn O’Brien, Peter Olsen, Mary Ann Peters, Akio Takamori, and Brad Winchester. The work in this show is both accessible and precious, exploring the realm of the mundane in artists’ practices. The potential for functionality of the ceramic plates and vessels and the use of unconventional art materials, such as the unraveled painter’s linen in Winchester’s wall pieces or Fay Jones’ tin can ‘frescoes’, highlight a playful approach to art making and offers an informal interaction with unique and beautiful objects.
