Artistic Genus signage and art at the Windermere Edmonds, by Elizabeth R. Smith of rowntreestudio.com

Yesterday the members of Artistic Genus hung a display of framed prints at the downtown Edmonds Windermere office. Our artwork will be on display in the lobby through the month of April, with a special focus on the regular third Thursday artwalk. That night we’ll bring in even more artwork, prints and notecards and will stay to chat and share snacks with artwalk visitors.

In March nearly twenty downtown businesses participated in the event. I had a great time strolling through town, chatting with artists and checking out their work, and I’m looking forward to participating this month!

This German gorilla conservation organization invited me to share my gorilla artwork and experience on their website along side other artists. You can find my page here, along with a wealth of other gorilla information and links in German and English. Animal and environment conservation are subjects dear to my heart, so I’m delighted to see what this organization is doing for gorillas.

I’m very excited to present this art exhibition, opening January 15th at the State Convention Center in downtown Seattle. Four of my pieces will be included! I’ll post more information about the show as I get it. For now you can read about the show here, at the GNSI-NW website.

I got to go see the show today! It’s gorgeous! Over fifty pieces of original artwork lines two sides of a large primary walkway and is available to view whenever the building is open (5am to 12am). There is no admission fee. There are lovely brochures listing every artist and including a thumbnail image of every piece of artwork, too!
