Art on Display at the WCD

The Washington Conservation District is excited to display the work of local artists in our office building. Currently we are hosting the artwork of local artist, Kristin Prideaux. Watch for new art every season and check out this page for current artists on display. 

Currently, the WCD has a Call for Artists to showcase their work for 1-3 months. All work must be natural resource focused and able to hang on the wall.  Artist handles all sales of their work. 

Contact Tara Kline for further details.

Past Artists 

“As an abstract photographer, I examine the often overlooked minutia of everyday life.  Composing through a macro view I discover patterns, colors and textures that create unique landscapes, familiar shapes and captivating repetitions.  I depend on the capture to create my imagery, rather than digital manipulation. My captures can sometimes be deceiving.  My intention is not to trick but to provoke thought and engage the viewer’s imagination and visual context.    A serendipitous event has led to my current work. While documenting the rust on the Stillwater Life Bridge, an oversized RV lost it’s side mirror. The surreal, cubist effect is obtained through the use of the shattered, found object. Depending on whether I focus into the reflection or on the surface of the mirror, my results can be strikingly varied.   A Twenty-first Century Fauve,  I strive to transcend the typical concept of a photograph. I  interpret my environment with my metal and glass brush, focusing on expression rather than on realities.”   —Kristin Prideaux, Argente Photo
