Eric Elliott (my review here) is a master of the endless tones of gray. Here's a rarely seen drawing by him, from his web site.


New Studio (2007), ink on paper, 22 by 30 inches

April Sargent engraves glass until it looks photographic. Bullseye Gallery shows her work in Portland.


For the People of 1st and Jackson (2008), fused and cameo-engraved glass, 17.625 by 23.375 by 2.25 inches

Their work will go on display, with work by the other nominees (Tim Cross, Gary Faigin, Lynda Lowe, Benjamin Moore, and the artist teams of Joey Kirkpatrick and Flora Mace, and Jenny Knowles and Sabrina Pohlman), at Tacoma Art Museum May 23.
