Now showing in Ballard:

Minami Wrigley

Artist/Intaglio Printmaker

2012 BA Fine Arts, Arts University College Bournemouth 

2016 MA Printmaking, University of Arts London - Camberwell College of Arts 

The effect of personal experience and memory in shaping one’s perspective has always been a subject explored and reflected in Minami’s works. The elements of cartography are often used to make these connections through the media of drawing, watercolour and printmaking.  

Printmaking has a tendency to leave unexpected marks, forcing you to work with mistakes and finding a way to make it a part of the image. It can only be controlled to a certain point and the rest is left to be found out through the process. This is the journey Minami hopes to take the viewer on with her work of re-experienced memories, transforming them into a re-presentation of a new experience.  

Minami’s works can be viewed on her Instagram @minwrigley. 

She has a series of upcoming displays which are listed on this page as well as an ongoing collection at Venue, Ballard. 

 Additional works, editions and variations are available for purchase through direct contact and Etsy.

Chris Thomas

Painting was new to me in 2019. I had never really delved in to any painting mediums in the past, other than watercolors when I was 3 years old. It started as a simple Wine & Paint Night with my fiancé and her two cousins that live in Seattle. We would go over to their place every week and have a lovely time just sipping drinks - whether it was White Claws or actual wine - and painting. This was my introduction to acrylic paint, and my subsequent interest in painting in general. 

Now, it's been about 2 years since I started painting. My style is my own, and I don't claim to be a part of any specific style or school of art. My content ranges from landscapes, to space, to Sci-Fi, surrealism, and much more. Influences on my work include Salvador Dali, Nick Flook, and René Magritte. 

As always, I appreciate your support and your patronage. I tend to fall in love with every piece I make, and sometimes find it hard to part ways with them. However, I find solace in knowing that someone else out there appreciates my art enough to care for it and hang it in their house. This makes it easier for me to part ways with my art (and makes my Fiancé happy too!). 

Much love, and happy painting! :)

Now showing in Wallingford:

Naomi Benson

Art has always been more than just a skill or career to me, but feels like a link to the parts of human experience that lay beneath our surface. I developed my artistic practice by approaching art as a healing, exploratory pursuit, which lead me to be open and free in my creative process. Often experimenting with different mediums, treating my art like play has allowed me to reach deeper emotions and unexpected imagery that reside in the subconscious mind.

I feel a strong link between my unplanned, organic approach to creating art and the unplanned, organic state of nature. Nature is the original artist, creating itself from itself just as artists create their art from themselves. My art is both inspired by nature in subject and process, as I use methods like automatic drawing that parallel the way nature is unplanned but beautiful and perfect in its own methods.

Art provides me with an understanding of myself and my world as well as a source of healing. Using an abstract surrealist style, I capture the beauty and healing I receive from nature and art to return that same healing and beauty back to the world.

Now showing in West Seattle:

T. Frick

T. Frick is a self-taught artist and female entrepreneur. She is a licensed Landscape Architect with a Bachelor's of Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Art has always been a key part of T's life, even as a young child. But it was her training in the architectural field that advanced her drafting, sketching, and painting style.

Growing up, T. could be found wandering the backwoods with one of her resident pups or when indoors, she occupied her time with drawing, painting, or other creative hobbies. Her love of nature and the outdoors led to a career in design. When not working, you'll typically find her creating - colors, shapes, textures, and movement creatively come to mind, manifesting into abstract, typically landscape or floral visions.

T. will tell you she dreams in trees. They just seem to end up on the canvas! No painting is ever planned. She begins with freedom of expression and movement, mark-making with no preset destination. After multiple sessions, a painting will eventually begin to reveal itself and navigate towards its intended vision. T. is currently working in oil and cold wax, acrylic, and mixed media in an abstract, expressive style. Her paintings are typically smaller in size with larger works on the horizon. Commissions at any scale are available upon request. Check out T's website and join her on an artistic journey through her diverse array of artwork!

Come see the show during the monthly West Seattle Art Walk on May 14th from 5:00 p.m - 8:00 p.m to learn more about T. The art will also be up at the West Seattle Branch for the whole month of May.
