Artists

Suzanne Tidwell

Installation on August 17

Suzanne Tidwell is well-known for her ability to transform local surroundings through temporary environmental and interactive art. The somber tones and rich vegetation of the Pacific Northwest influence her brash and untraditional work in fiber and demonstrate that experiencing bright color can be just as beneficial to one’s mood as a sunny day. Her medium varies from project to project - yarn, rope, electroluminescent wire, pool noodles, Arduino, metal, LED rope lighting or haptic technologies, she is continuously experimenting.

Jennifer Szabo

Installation on August 24

Jennifer Szabo creates art that is focused on the intersection between nature, time and culture. Working in the field of Landscape Architecture in the Northwest, her passion for place-making and belief that human interaction with natural world is vital informs her art. She seeks to celebrate these connections as well as ask the viewer to consider their role in these interactions. She creates integrated art that reaches into, sculpts and communes with nature to evoke memory and presence. Learn more...
