A Solo Art Exhibition by Christine Hella Cott Thompson
October 20 – December 6, 2015
Meet the Artist Reception October 29, 2015 6-8pm
Our new art exhibition is In the Blink of an Eye: A Solo Art Exhibition by Christine Hella Cott Thompson running from October 20 – December 6, 2015 with a Meet the Artist Reception on October 29 from 6-8pm. Christine says, "The origin of the Glimpse Series is the reach of sunlight through a landscape, how the long, golden beams filtering through can light up and render splendid a few simple, drab leaves. And how, speeding by in our hurry to get things done, we sometimes miss the splendor. I try to catch just a little of what appears in those split seconds of glory."
Christine has been a member of the Sidney Art Gallery in Port Orchard since 2008, and is also a member of the South Kitsap Artists Association. Since August 2012, she has been represented by Bainbridge Arts and Crafts on Bainbridge Island.
As of July 2013, she joined Gallery Row in Gig Harbor, a co-op gallery of fourteen artists. She has won numerous awards and has participated in a variety of juried art shows including those hosted by the Peninsula Art League in Gig Harbor, Collective Visions Gallery in Bremerton, and the Helen Norris Open Art Shows at the Sidney Gallery.
In January 2015, Christine won the ‘Best of Kitsap’ Award from the Cultural Arts Foundation NW in the 8th Annual Washington State Juried Art Show hosted by the Collective Visions Gallery. In May 2015, she won ‘Best of Show’ in the Helen Norris Show at Sidney Gallery in Port Orchard. Her art work has been featured on post cards (Port Orchard), street banners (Bremerton) and many other promotions (Art Walk, Gig Harbor).
