Residents are invited to Tsuga Fine Art in Bothell for a free, opening-night reception of the exhibition “Deconstructions” from 4-7 p.m. on March 25. The show features dynamic new work by local painter Brooke Borcherding, highlighting her trademark abstracted cityscapes and views of nature. Residents are invited to meet Borcherding at the reception and ask her about her inspiration and techniques.
The exhibition of Borcherding’s work will run from March 25 to May 12.
Borcherding is a 29-year-old, award-winning fine artist who is dedicated to exploring the landscape through paint. Growing up painting palm trees of southern California, a move to Oregon to pursue her BFA inspired her to take an easel outside for the first time in 2009. Her current work of deconstructing the landscape aims to shed light on the beauty of ordered chaos. The goal is to create an engaging visual scene that takes the viewer deep into the visual space and dances between the real and the inevitable unreal of paint on a canvas. Borcherding is a full-time artist in Seattle.
Tsuga Fine Art displays two- and three-dimensional original artwork, offers custom picture framing with craftsman quality, and an art studio where small classes are taught by local artists. The shop is in downtown Bothell, on the corner of Main Street and 101st Avenue NE. Gallery events include exhibit openings, art lectures, musical performances and poetry nights. It is also available for private events.
