Pop-up show at Alchemy Arts

Submitted by Alchemy Art Center.

Come see what Alchemy’s amazingly talented August/September artist cohort has been up to this summer! This Tuesday, Sept. 27 from 6-9 p.m., Alchemy welcomes you to their dome exhibition space at 1255 Wold Rd. You will be able to purchase beautiful pottery, prints, and other original art. Plus, Emerald will be performing her original songs at 7 p.m. This is the culminating event for Lenore Wan, Cozette Ellis, and Emerald VL, all of whom have been living and working at Alchemy and interacting with the SJI community through free art activities for the past two months.

Lenore Wan is a multidisciplinary artist from Seattle working in the realms of ceramics and illustration. She loves to capture playful forms and colorful patterns in her work. At Alchemy Art Center, she’s been developing hand-building and glazing techniques, as well as fabric painting. She loves to work spontaneously and loosely to capture the explorative process of art making.

Cozette Ellis is a visual artist and illustrator who has spent her time at alchemy working with different forms of printmaking and learning ceramics. She is inspired by the human body in all its forms, especially incorporated with color and pattern.

Emerald VL is a visiting artist from Berkeley, California. She has a background in drawing and painting, and has spent her time here at Alchemy focusing on her music, and learning screen printing & ceramics. At the show on the 27th Emerald will share some art, and a set of music she has written during her time on island.

These visiting artists are part of Alchemy’s Artists in Community Program, which is made possible by support from the NEA, ArtsWA, Tulalip Charitable Fund, San Juan Island Community Foundation, and by the support of the SJI community.
