Tsuga Fine Art is opening a new exhibit and holding a free opening-night reception this Saturday.
From 4 to 7 p.m., Tsuga Fine Art invites locals to a free, opening-night reception of the exhibition “New Geometry: The Art of Mari Shibuya and Cynthia Wessling”, highlighting the talent and dynamic vision of these emerging local artists.
Guests will be able to meet Mari and Cynthia and speak with them about their inspirations and techniques while Tsuga Fine Art provides light refreshments. Anyone is welcome to this event.
Figurative painter Mari Shibuya combines realism with abstraction and geometry. A graduate of the the Kang-O’Higgins Atelier at Gage Academy of Art, Mari is motivated by the desire to explore the imaginary world that imprints physical matter and the intrinsic patterns that exist within all levels of Life. She feels that the power of art lies in the intention that is laced into the work throughout the whole creative process.
Fine artist Cynthia Wessling also studies with the Kang-O’Higgins Atelier at Gage Academy in Seattle. She specializes in narrative abstract paintings, striving to explore people and the connections and relationships that comprise our world: one person to another, people linked together by a time or place, people within their environment, and the unique events and experiences that shape a lifetime.
Tsuga Fine Art displays two- and three-dimensional, locally created 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 the heart of Historic 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.
