Ellsworth paintings coming to Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery

New paintings by Friday Harbor artist Jaime Ellsworth will be shown at the Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery in Bellevue from July 8 to Aug. 9.

Simple forms are consistent in all her artwork and Ellsworth works in series offering relationships, discovery and contrasts. She creates visual situations from everyday experiences and observations. One of those situations is a series of paintings based on Pagau, the dog they adopted from China and his experiences in the Western World.

Ellsworth’s paintings are built of many thin layers of oil bar starting with a limited palette of bold colors on large canvases or wood panels. Subsequent layers allow the under paint to peek through and transparent glazes give the final surface a subtle tint.

The gallery will host a Meet the Artist event from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, July 8.

The gallery is located at 800 Bellevue Way NE, 425.827.2822.
