This month Sidestreet Arts’ featured show artists are ceramics artist Terri Axness and print-maker Donna Reed. Their works will be on display sale all month at the gallery, 140 SE 28th Ave., Wednesday-Sunday 12-5 pm.
Known for her diverse and whimsical ceramics, artist Terri Axness fires her nature-inspired ceramics, like the Jumping Sockeye wall hanging (right), in electric and gas-kilns. She is a master at both throwing and hand-built ceramics; she uses her lifetime of experience in creating unique and collectible pieces.
Print-maker Dona Reed’s designs are very bold, graphic and show a playful side to her subjects. Her latest art, Farm Series, is a body of work that harkens back to her childhood spent on a small dairy farm in Minnesota. She uses up-cycled boxes and drawers to enhance and showcase her lively bird prints.
