Carin Christy Art Opening: Third Thursday

30% off our used book inventory all day! 

Please join us from 5:00-7:00PM for Carin Christy's Art Opening, where she will be exhibiting her new work. 

Carin's Artist Statement: 
Carin Christy holds a BA in Fine Arts from The University of Northern Iowa and a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago.  She practices Art Therapy in Olympia, WA where she has lived for 20 years with her family.  Her current work is in oil and cold wax medium and is largely abstract, utilizing a variety of mark making and texture building techniques to create works with depth and history.   Her paintings are often pushed to a place of discomfort where there are questions, tension and even some loss of control. Once resolved Carin’s paintings show some of the struggle, evidence of the human hand, a bit of motion, as well as tension and balance.   The process is a sort of story making, a history development, and a rediscovery of the elements of play and exploration.
