Terri Shinn art at Frances Anderson Center
A new exhibit in the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation Gallery and Edmonds Arts Commission Display Case in the Frances Anderson Center features mixed media artist Terri Shinn. The show, “Exploring Structures through Color and Texture,” is on exhibit through April 28.
The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception in the gallery during March’s Art Walk Edmonds, 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, March 16.
The pieces shown in the exhibit incorporate elements of Shinn’s love of fiber with her new-found infatuation of other mediums and found objects. Whether it is with hand-dyed threads and fabrics, or painting with acrylics, each work plays with different kinds of structures, textures and color combinations.
“Experimentation is an essential part of my art process, and I look to my sense of humor and outlook on life for inspiration,” said Terri Shinn.
“I especially enjoy the discovery process while playing with a multitude of materials, experimenting with different textures, and tackling new techniques.”
Terri pursued a ten-year certificate program in Experimental Stitch and Multimedia from Gail Harker’s Center for Creative Arts in La Conner. A resident of Snohomish for more than 20 years, Shinn’s work is featured in numerous books, regional and national exhibits, as well as in private and public collections.
In 2005 she was named the “Snohomish County Artist of the Year.” Shinn previously served on the Arts Council of Snohomish County.
Regular EAFF gallery hours are 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays at the Frances Anderson Center, 650 Main St., Edmonds.
