SPECTRUM is an exciting, annual exhibition celebrating the talented & diverse artists in our community! Following an unjuried open invitation, 31 established & emerging artists are showcasing work in a broad spectrum of styles, media & subjects.

This year artists responded to the theme Unexpected Detours. Each work of art represents a journey - creative, emotional, ideological. Along the way we experience unplanned challenges, adventures & awakenings. Artists will share their journey & all the twists & turns along the way.

Exhibiting Artists:

Lucy Andersen, Stephen Arthur, Sue Bayley, Nickey Bayne, Lee Caufield, Maggie Caunt, Maria Cook, Iva Dietrich, Jocelyn Fisk-Schleger, Doria Fochi, Joan Gauthier, Dana Huhn, Carl Hunter, Douglas Krieger, Eva Lederer, Monique Hae In Lee, Pierre Leichner, Marion Maxwell, Elizabeth McLaren, Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki, Nasim Motamedi, Gloria O'Neil, Marja-Liisa Oksanen, Mandana Rahiminia, Yeganeh Sanati, Kimberly Swanson, Joyce VandeGriend, Joanne Waters,  Jilly Watson, Georgia Youngs, Azi Yousefi

By creating an inclusive & level playing field, SPECTRUM shines a light on these gifted artists at varying stages in their careers; offering them the opportunity to exhibit & providing an engaging experience with diverse artwork & artists.
