About the Artists

Washington's watercolors give expression to the inspiration she finds in nature, especially the flowers, leaves, trees and animals of the Pacific Northwest. By pairing her paintings with literary quotes and poems from her readings for this exhibit entitled "Watercolors & Words," Washington has curated a delightful union of the literary and visual arts, a tribute to the Greenwood Branch where she has worked for the past 18 years.

Ford is an independent glass artist from Seattle. He was part of the Hill Top Artists and Residents Glassblowing Production Team at Jason Lee Middle School in Tacoma, which donated handmade glass works to help non-profit organizations raise funds. Malcolm volunteers at Pratt Fine Arts Center while continuing his studies and glass practice. This exhibit, "Decorative Artwork Made from 2050°," showcases his work.
