~Blue Star Café: Marcia Douglas – Seattle–based artist/printmaker
“I print for the joy of it. I like to work with layers of color and imagery and with Solarplate etchings, which give me a way to integrate my photographs into monoprints for fresh interpretations. I enjoy applying a variety of techniques to let the story of each piece reveal itself as thework and I go along in the creative process. My inspirations come from visual memories of moments in time, shapes and colors playing with and against each other, and the simple pleasure of making marks on the plate. My prints are relief and intaglio, sometimes including both in the same monoprint. I make monotypes and also editions. My processes involve various ways of creating plates, depending on my mood and what a piece seems to want. I often incorporate collage elements in my work. I began working in oil-based printing inks but have switched to Akua inks, which are non-toxic, soy-based and produce rich colors. For etchings, I use the Solarplate process which is also non-toxic.”

Xon’s Bakery (Boulangerie Bakery)- Matt Ballard
“Recent changes in my life and awareness have brought me to my current work with perception. My curiosity, appreciation and respect of animals has inspired me to create a series of paintings (virtually endless) of animal silhouettes surrounded by a plane of swirling colors representing one plane of perception, being emotion and growth. The words in several languages are a metaphor for how well we understand each other as a whole as well as the definitions of these words as we know them.”
~Not A Number regularly features local artists, especially in various types of locally-made greeting cards (local photography, poets, painters, graphic artists, even from Wallingford!). ”
