The Artist Within – A Different View of Dementia​​​​​​​
March - April
The Artist Within – A Different View of Dementia.
Surprising, delightful and inspiring art by vibrant people, 60-101, living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias. This extraordinary artwork is a revelation, opening hearts and minds to a different way of thinking about dementia, enabling us to see that people living with dementia are still here, living with dignity, creativity, and joy.

Jen Borst
If one were to observe Jen Borst’s career over the last decade, it would seem that she has found more than 24 hours in the day: in addition to participation in many multi-artist shows across Washington State, “The View From Here” is Borst’s seventh solo exhibition as a painter, the shutter counter on her camera indicates that Jen takes about 30,000 photos a year in her life as a professional portrait photographer, somehow finding time for both visual mediums, while simultaneously gaining the attention of national press outlets for her work as a songwriter and vocalist in a folk group that plays more than 100 shows annually. This work ethic has allowed her to carve a meaningful place for herself in all three disciplines. Continue reading here.

Opening Reception: April 6, 5 - 8 pm


In the Main Gallery:

Debris - Evan Blackwell, Karen Hackenberg, Bonilyn Parker
It’s no coincidence this exhibit was timed for Earth Day. This exhibition brings together three artists who gain inspiration from items that most of us discard. Their inventive reuse and re-purposing of unique materials draws on themes as varied as ocean degradation, material transformation and the cycles of growth, decay, and renewal.

Bonilyn Parker is a ceramics artist-in-residence at Gallery One. In addition to being an artist, Boni also is the ceramics technician and teaches art after school and adult classes. In her functional ceramic work you will discover textures made from bubble wrap, corrugated cardboard, 2 liter bottles and beer cans.

Karen Hackenberg, a painter from the Discovery Bay near Port Townsend, lusciously depicts and rearranges discarded ocean debris in her paintings. Her environmental investigations have recently made their way onto the iPad and some of those drawings will be on display at Gallery One as well.

Evan Blackwell uses materials in surplus such as frame corners and other construction materials to create strong forms. Much like construction sites, his work is site specific and challenges the concept of the framed art piece.

In the Eveleth Green Gallery:
Mano de Orula - Xavier Cavazos
Inspired by the street art of Cuba, Xavier explores themes of the sacred along with everyday life. Cavazos also integrates discarded materials from construction sites. 

In the Hallway Gallery:
