New exhibits at Edmonds Library and Frances Anderson Center


February 26, 2019

“We Are All Shadows,” Jacob Smithers.

The Edmonds Arts Commission features mixed-media book art creations by local Belltown Book Arts group in the Frances Anderson Center display Case (700 Main St.) and fine photography by Lynnwood photographer Jacob Smithers in the Edmonds Library (650 Main St.).

Smithers’ abstract photos are on exhibit through the end of March. Framed in reclaimed vintage building materials, Smithers’ images are a study of metaphors found in everyday objects.

The artist said his hope is that viewers “will be compelled to step out of their busy lives for just a moment to consider the photos and their accompanying statements.”

Smithers and his wife run Seattle Creative, a marketing company focused on the creation of internet content for area businesses and management of social media platforms. For more information, go to www.jacobsmithers.com.

Belltown Art Books (a.k.a. The Bookies), initially formed in 2002 in the Belltown neighborhood of Seattle, is a group of like-minded artists who meet monthly at ArtWorks in downtown Edmonds to share tips and methods of creating book art, explore new book structures, critique each other’s work and exhibit and share their creations.

The group show, which is on display through March, features large and small works by John Arbuckle, Meredith Arnold, Jim Ballard, Jan Clem, Natalie Danielson, Kathy Dickerson, Sue Gruhn, Nan Robkin and Michele Unger.

Those interested in participating in the group can get more information by contacting ArtWorks at artworks@artworks-edmonds.org.
