Featured Exhibit

 Coming in August

Four talented artists—four different media. Something for everyone.

 The Burien Arts Gallery’s August exhibition features painter Jim Matthew, photographer Jane Day Lanning, ceramic artist Vicki Hamilton and mixed media creator Diane Baxter.

Meet the artists at the opening reception, Thursday, Aug. 7, 4-9 p.m. The gallery is located at 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien.

Matthew has exhibited in numerous Seattle galleries, including a two-person show with Kenneth Callahan at the Woodside/Braseth Gallery.

Lanning completed the Art Institute of Seattle’s Commercial Photography program. As a life-long learner, she traveled to Nepal for her first documentary assignment and has explored numerous national parks.

Wanting to get unstuck from the familiar and confortable, Hamilton enrolled last September for a third time at the La Meridiana International School of Ceramic Arts in Italy.

Baxter’s pieces are composed of organic materials gathered locally, including dirt, sand and sticks.

Current show

Don’t miss the outstanding current exhibit that ends Aug. 3.

You will never drive through Seattle at night without thinking of Robert Dean’s prints or look at an abstract design in our landscape without thinking of Ken DeRoux’s oil paintings. Diane Baxter’s “Bundles” will make you look at sticks, branches and other organic material in a new way.

DeRoux, a Burien resident, is displaying his abstract paintings on canvas and works on paper. Burien resident Dean’s work is inspired by shadowy images he encounters on his solitary nightly commute. Baxter’s dramatic mixed media pieces are nearly six feet tall and measure 15 inches at the base..
