Columbia City Gallery is pleased to announce two new exhibits. "Mixed White" and "PaperWorks" run June 22 - August 7, 2011. The Artists' Reception will be held on Saturday, June 25, 5-8pm at the Columbia City Gallery, 4864 Rainier Ave S. This event is free and open to the public.


In the main gallery: "Mixed White"
Gallery artists Mark Ditzler, Sally Drew, Kate Harkins, Shari Kaufman and Christopher Bryce Morris explore the myriad possibilities in the use various shades of white in new works.

In the guest gallery: "PaperWorks"
Three artists exhibit artwork made from and about paper. Bo Young Choi shows work from her series Freedom under Control: Bible Weaving. Choi deconstructs and re-weaves bibles to express freedom in the guide given to us by religion. Celeste Cooning debuts a series of silver leafed cut paper works, influenced by the history of pattern and ornament, which explores the silver lining through symmetry, light, and color. Japanese-American artist Greg Kono explores his culture through kite making. He uses bamboo and washi (Japanese handmade paper) which have been used for centuries in Japan; his designs though, are anything but traditional as he depicts insects, human figures and even fruit in his modern flying pieces.
