West Seattle Cellars February Artist: Claire Johnson
Claire Johnson is a long time member of Soil Gallery and has been showing her paintings locally and nationally for 14 years. Claire is known for her direct, observational approach, warm color and lyrical brushwork. Fragments, small paintings of trees, power lines, roof tops, and sky, are based on observations during her daily travels around Seattle in the fall of 2011 and was first shown at Soil Gallery in December 2011. Also included are two watercolors from her aerial landscape series. To see more of Claire’s work, visit her website at www.clairejohnsonart.com/.
This month’s Art Walk Thursday falls on our last tasting before Valentine’s Day, so we’ve decided to pour some fun, perhaps even romantic, wines that night. Nothing says “Valentine’s Day” like bubblies, so we’ll be popping corks on an array of sparkling wines, to please every palate and budget. Come and enjoy Claire’s art, try the wines, and perhaps find a bottle to add to your own Valentine’s Day celebration!
