July 5th – 30th
Opening Reception: July 5th, 5-8 pm
Jimmie Nord, an artist from Northern California, works out of his studio/garage in Eureka, CA. He works mainly in wood and metal. His work is a playful look into construction and the tools and equipment that are used. He pulls his ideas from past work experiences such as construction and working with the U.S Forest Service. Currently, Jimmie is a lecturer at Humboldt State University teaching 3D and 2D Foundations, Professional Practices, Ceramics, and Special Topics in Sculpture. He is also a board member of Morris Graves Museum of Art.
The intuitive process and the visceral nature of visual language remain at the core of Élan’s creative practice. Her most current paintings present dense layers of colors, textures and gestural marks with graffiti-like silhouettes of people and animals. They play with the age old past time of leaving our marks on walls.
