Liberty Gallery Features “Myths and Legends” in June ~ Digital Works by Artist Esther Mann

From the beginning people have relied on myths and legends to give explanation of the world around them. From providing a framework for understanding natural phenomena, to giving voice to every step in the journey of life from birth, to death traditions, myths and legends give us context, keeping us steady as we take each step toward the future, the unknown. Today we also have our myths & legends, we call them psychology, or biology, or science. Names change, but the stories remain.

Artists Ann Austin & Dianne McDermott @ PPP for June ’23!

Pottery Place Plus is pleased to present Spokane mixed media artist Ann Austin and Liberty Lake fiber artist Dianne McDermott as our guest artists in June ’23.

Ann uses the found beauty and repeating patterns of the natural world in her collage and mixed media, overlaying and combining colors & patterns in the manner of a puzzle coming into focus with each new piece. She incorporates found images and papers, and also her own monoprints and photos, resulting in a visual and emotional experience that brings a moment of joyful surprise.

Dianne uses her art background as an illustrator and graphic artist in designing her backpacks, purses & bags. She often researches designer fabrics to compile a theme, then adds beadwork and embroidery to the uniqueness of each creation.

Stop by our shop & gallery this June to view the work of Ann Austin & Dianne McDermott ~ we are located in the Historic Liberty Building at 203 N. Washington St in downtown Spokane.
