‘Breathe' exhibit now open at Northwind Art

PORT TOWNSEND — “Dreamy Afternoon” and “The Lava Exhaled” are among the artworks brought in to Northwind Art’s Jeanette Best Gallery for a new show. The exhibit, called “Breathe,” features local and regional artists, interpreting that title in any way they choose.

“Breathe” is now on view, and the public is invited to see the artwork in the Showcase 2024 space inside the gallery at 701 Water St. in Port Townsend.

“It always astonishes me how the artists create to the theme in different ways,” said Northwind Art spokesperson Diane Urbani.

“These new pieces go from serene, aquamarine scenes to sparkling mosaics,” she added.

“Breathe” artists include:

• Diane Walker and Leslie Newman, who are known for their abstract paintings;

• Kate Dwyer, builder of fabric maché bowls;

• John Holm, painter of golden landscapes;

• Shelley Jaye, who constructs mixed-media mosaics;

• Corinne Humphrey, whose acrylic scenes celebrate dogs and other creatures.

All live in Port Townsend except Newman, whose studio is in Indianola.

Jeanette Best Gallery is open from noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Mondays. Also on view there through April 28 is “A Warm Embrace,” featuring paintings and mixed media artwork from five Seattle-area women.
