Value: $1,000
Thank you: Cheryl Tetlow

                                       John W. Brown (1931-2005) was recognized for his artistic talent
                                       at age eight and was enrolled in a private art class given by the
                                       Dean of the School of Art at Arizona State University. John later
                                       graduated from ASU and furthered his schooling in architecture
                                       at the University of Southern California. During the 1970s, he
                                       studied under George De Groat, freeing himself from the
                                       precision of his architectural schooling. Under financial and
                                       familial maelstroms, his creativity caught fire and his painted
                                       some of his most powerful and emotional canvases. John spent
                                       his retirement years on Whidbey Island.

                                cut and is one in a series of images using this folk art flower
                                design, which the artist discovered on the side of a wooden box
                                given to her by her grandmother. She first made a drawing and
                                then carved it into the linoleum. The border is cut out of another
                                print, which was made using a wooden collograph plate.

138. Kay Walsh "Mid Tide, Great Bear Rainforest, BC"
Archival inkjet print photograph, 28" x 22"
Value: $500
Thank you: Kay Walsh

                                     For more than a decade, Kay Walsh was an ocean sailor,
                                     exploring and experiencing the world on a personal level. It
                                     taught her not only to see the immediate, but to feel the
                                     unseen energy all around her. When Kay sailed back to the
                                     Pacific Northwest, photography was the natural
                                     progression of her dramatic, vagabond lifestyle as she
                                     wandered the still wild backcountry, camera in hand. Kay
                                     tries to capture the complicated beauty she finds in a
                                     simple yet dramatic style that will become timeless.

Value: $600
Thank you: Gillian Bull

                                  Gillian Bull was born in Rugby, England. As a newlywed in 1956
                                  she moved to New Zealand with her glaciologist husband,
                                  taught art, and started a family. The next stop was Columbus,

                                  extensively, from Antarctica to warmer climes, and prefers to
                                  paint “en plein air.” Her work is mostly representational, and she
                                  creates an authentic sense of place using dry pastel, oil paint,
                                  oilbar, and oil pastel. Gallery affiliations include Bainbridge Arts

Ink monotype print, 2011, 20" x 24"
Value: $600
Thank you: Renée Jameson

                                 Renée Jameson works mostly with images of abstract landscape
                                 and particularly enjoys the layering process of monotype and
                                 the way each layer of color dramatically changes the piece,
                                 adding depth and complexity. Each layer is carefully thought-
                                 out, yet always presents an element of surprise when it goes
                                 through the press. Reach the artist at

Monotype on paper, 2012, 23½" x 20½"
Value: $650
Thank you: Helena Hoyte Bierly

                                Helena’s current work was inspired by photographs she took from
                                an evening flight into Seattle with the sun piercing through a dark
                                cloud bank. She works in monotype, an intuitive and expressive
                                medium that allows her to explore luminosity, translucence, and
                                saturated color. Helena is also an interior designer, working and
                                living on Bainbridge Island. Find her at

Value: $150
Thank you: Ellen Wixted

                               Ellen Wixted is a painter and printmaker based on Bainbridge
                               Island. Finding ways to see local, ordinary landscapes clearly and
                               afresh has been her focus for as long as she’s been making
                               images. In this latest body of work, a series of untitled monoprints
                               she calls “Through the Woods,” she explores the experience of
                               running on the public trails that criss-cross the island. As a new
                               runner, these island trails offer her both intimate privacy and a
                               never-ending visual kaleidoscope.

                                 Printmaking, rediscovered after moving to Bainbridge through
                                 Inkgarden Studios, has led Kathryn to a continued exploration of
                                 the landscape and our relationship to it. After graduating with a
                                 BA in Studio Art from Stanford University, it took many years to find
                                 a precarious balance between the creative drive, working as an
                                 interior designer, and raising a family. She most recently held a

                                Scripps College, courses at Fuji Studios in Florence, Italy; and a
                                live/work experience in a Balinese village to study ikat and silk
                                weaving. She has worked as a professional artist since 2002. In

                                longtime Bainbridge Islander who originally hails from Mississippi.

Thank you: Lynn Brofsky
                               Lynn Brofsky grew up in Colorado, where family road trips from
                               Denver in any direction took her out to areas of farmland, mesas,
                               deserts and ghost towns populated with skeletal relics of the oil
                               industry. Lynn uses the monotype medium for its flexibility,
                               combining the fluidity of oil paint with the capacity to build

220. Amos Edwards, "Algae"
Mixed media painting, 2011, 22" x 32"
Value: $1,400
Thank you: Amos Edwards

                                Amos Staffler Edwards grew up in the Bay Area in a family of
                                artists. Marinating in a world of art, she developed a fascination
                                and desire to pull characteristics from various mediums to create
                                her work. This exploration has resulted in “refined raw,” a
                                weathering process of canvas using mixed materials to create a
                                depth and a visceral rawness. Her paintings are living pieces that
                                subtly patina over time. Amos paints and lives on Bainbridge with
                                her husband, three children, and many pets.

1. Wendy Orville, "Port Townsend #10"
Monotype print
14" x 10"
Value: $900
Thank you: Wendy Orville

                                Trained as a painter, Wendy Orville has focused on making
                                monotypes for the past 15 years. She treats the monotype
                                process like painting in many ways, working to create an
                                equivalent of light by building up translucent layers of color and
                                marks, often scratching into the surface after pulling the print
                                from the press. In doing so she reduces the landscape to
                                essentials, evoking an emotional space that invites viewers inside
                                while retaining a painterly flatness and tension. Orville received
                                her BA in Fine Arts from Yale University and her MFA in painting
                                from American University. She moved to the Pacific Northwest in
                                1996. Her work has shown in Connecticut, New York, Washington
                                DC, New Mexico, and on Bainbridge Island. She has taught at
                                Pratt Fine Arts, the Henry Art Gallery, University of Indiana and
                                numerous other venues and now teaches monotype workshops
                                for beginning and experienced artists out of her studio,
