Visit Studio Amiche to see the latest work by Patsy Hand and Kathryn Hutchinson (right). Patsy Hand shows a collection of large acrylic abstracts in vibrant colors with creative forms and line work, along with some of her delightful early monotype prints. Kathryn Hutchinson displays work in a variety of mediums, including etchings, monotypes, block prints, and oil paintings. These works represent a variety of styles and subjects, with landscapes recently becoming a dominant theme.
Studio Amiche is located on the second floor of the Steelhead Brewery building. The best entrance to the studio is the elevator, behind the red phone booth on 5th Street, between the brewery and the bike shop Pedego. On the second floor, walk down the hallway to the east around the corner and then to the rear of the hallway of the northeast corner.
BOTANICAL COMPOSITIONS Art with Alejandro (5th Street Public Market 2nd floor, 246 E 5th Ave Suite # 224)
For the month of November, the gallery at Art with Alejandro highlights botanicals. Artist Sabrena Annelle (right) states: “The current artworks question the concept of impermanence and the beauty in change. I work with multiple mediums and find joy in texture, plant matter, and paint. I call these pieces ‘Botanical Compositions,’ created from outdoor plant matter, paint, and readymade objects.” Also on display are oil paintings by Barbara Council Burney that resemble 19th century botanical illustrations.
