Commonwheel Artists Co-op will be hosting ‘Dissolved Ink/Discovered Images’ from October 1 to November 1 in our gallery.
Pete Hokanson creates digital images based on what he finds in the dissolved ink of National Geographic pages. When he sees something that sparks his imagination on the page, he scans it into the computer and creates a larger work of art. The title of the work helps to guide the viewer to what he originally saw, but he also encourages the audience to “look closely at the details of an image and find [their] own creative Rorschach response.”
Joining Pete is Wilhelmina Steenbergen with 3-dimensional work created from gourds, hand-made paper, and other items. She derives the themes and shapes of her art from nature, the seasons, and her daily experiences. Wilhelmina’s fascination with texture always finds an outlet in her artwork.
