Port Townsend, WA – An exhibit featuring four regional artists, 4×4: Art by Design, opens June 9 and will run through August 7 at Northwind Art Jeanette Best Gallery, 701 Water Street, gallery hours are Thursday through Monday, noon-5 pm.
There will be an Artists’ Talk and Meet + Greet: Saturday, June 11 at 1 pm.

“All of these artists share a common career path,” says Kathleen Garrett, Exhibits Director at Northwind Art. “They all started out as graphic designers and continue to use those skills as they have migrated to the world of fine art.”

The exhibit features works by Tim Celeski (Indianola, WA), David Owen Hastings (Sequim, WA), Leslie Newman (Indianola, WA), and Brian O’Neill (Bellingham, WA) and focuses on abstract art in mediums including prints, quilts, ceramic vessels, digital painting, and abstract wood sculpture.

4×4: Art by Design presents complementary forms, shapes, colors, depths, and intensities that radiate throughout each artist’s work. The exhibit demonstrates the shared history, experience, visual skills, and unique perspectives that each of these artists brings to their work.

“Each of these artists brings such a breadth of experience and talent to this exhibit. We’re very excited to bring this work to Port Townsend for the summer season.”

Kathleen Garrett, Exhibits Director
