Etsuko Ichikawa: My Glass Pyrograph is an abstract drawing on paper made with fire by scorching molten glass. This work captures and eternalizes the immediacy of a moment, and it is a trace of my body movement with fluid glass.
Artist Talk: April 18th, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
About the Artist: I am a multi-media artist, filmmaker, and activist.
I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and graduated from Tokyo Zokei University in 1987 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. I came to the U.S. to attend Pilchuck Glass School in 1993 and worked for Dale Chihuly as a studio assistant for eight years. I became independent in 2003 and since then, I have been making art full time. After living in Seattle for 29 years, I have become nomadic and am currently traveling around the world to participate in art residencies.
I was born and raised in Tokyo and have lived in the U.S. for almost 30 years. Both places are home to me, and while my life is rooted in America, my spiritual-seeking and aesthetic sensibilities strongly call to Japan. My work is a reflection of myself in these two distinctively different cultures.

Perception of Failure by Clarie B. Jones
About the exhibit: Failure, real or perceived, fear of it and society’s ensuing judgement, is something which we often must deal with. Claire B. Jones proposes to explore and highlight this struggle in this exhibition by revealing to the viewer the flaws she sees in her own artwork. Since the viewer is typically not aware of the original intent, they cannot judge the work by that bar unless the artist chooses to reveal it. In exposing her perception of the flaws in her art, Claire hopes to show that failure is not as straightforward as we often perceive. The aim of the exhibition is to encourage the viewer to think through, and open-up about their ideas and experiences of failure.
From Claire B. Jones: My art is driven by a fascination with material and form, embedded in experimentation, and impelled toward possibility. Each machine-stitched fiber sculpture evolves from a technical challenge or question; each sculpture leads to more questions and more ideas. Inspired by mathematical topology and a desire to achieve new forms, I create self-supporting, three-dimensional objects out of flat fabric and machine stitching. My background in research and computer engineering brace my systematic experimentation with technique and architectural construction. Just as math topology studies the limits and continuities of transformed shapes and spaces, I explore the properties of material, plane, and form, testing and stretching their boundaries and possibilities. http://www.clairebjones.com/
Ephemeral Constucts by Francesca Udeschini
"Ephemeral Constructs" is an exhibition of large-scale sculptures and cyanotypes by Francesca Udeschini inspired by the meticulously built and inevitably transient webs of orb weaver spiders. Francesca Udeschini (they/she) is a queer interdisciplinary artist whose practice is rooted in spending time observing nature and investigating mortality, transformation, and impermanence in connection to the human experience. It will be an open gallery with light refreshments and an artist talk.
Intersections = Math + Art: Showing Our Work exhibit
The Cascadia College Art Gallery is hosting an interdisciplinary show titled Intersections = Math + Art: Showing Our Work. The exhibit will feature the following artists, Monique Catino, Timea Tihanyi, Henry Segerman, Claire B. Jones, and Volkan Alkanoglu.
Geometric shapes, origami, and tessellations, as well as Catino's love of color and fascination with glass, comes through in mosaic work, and now also in beaded glass sculptures. The last couple of years Catino has been deeply immersed in learning new fabrication techniques that will transform 2D ideas into the sphere of 3D.
Claire B. Jones Sculpture: A Digital Exhibit
Claire B Jones creates colorful, whimsical, free-standing sculptures by painting with thread on cotton canvas. The fabric evolves by layering and blending a myriad of machine stitched thread until the underlying canvas is completely covered.
