My recent paintings are inspired from the road trips with my wife this past year. Our travels brought us from metropolis to metropolis and the grand landscapes in-between them. I describe my compositions as abstractions of landscape, architecture, and space. The geometry of these places provides a structure in which I explore color, texture, and the illusions of space and time. Seeking to find order out of chaos, I strive for images that convey and promote a sense of peace.
Artist Reception and the opening of this new show starts on March 17 from noon-5pm.
“As a fine art photographer, I enjoy and respect the art in all its forms. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest all of my life and couldn’t imagine myself living anywhere else. My respect for my home country is reflected daily in my patience and dedication to the craft of photography. I shoot landscape and adventure photography, portraiture, real estate, and product photography.”
“The arts exhibit will feature some of my favorite shoots from my adventures last year in Tacoma, in the Olympics and Mt Rainier.”

We hope you enjoyed the summer art events of the region! From art walks to festivals, Tacoma and the South Sound were an exciting place to be. If you’re happy to see that autumn is upon us and winter is on its way, it’s not too early to take a look at local art to warm your home (or friends and family) for the holidays.
We have seen a few of our artists go and a new artist join. Please help us welcome Kelly Marie Falk to our collective. Kelly will be showcasing beautiful oil paintings of landscapes and animals. We still have a few artist vacancies, so if you know of a budding artist/maker, send them our way!
Thank you for your support and patronage!

A sample of Brown’s work…
“Posture” Stripped down of all excess and resting on another language, posture expresses vulnerability.
“Alice in Wonderland” Peering into the unknown, Alice feels like she is falling down the rabbit hole, but she is in control this time.
“Are You Cussing with Me?” The fox holds an unknown power in its gaze, taunting and intriguing the viewer.
