May 2 – June 1
Harris Harvey Gallery presents Intimate Interiors: Women at Home by figurative painter Terry Furchgott. This narrative work captures secret moments of women alone in the most intimate of domestic interiors, evoking with solitude and silence a mutual relationship between that space we call “home” and the person who inhabits it. Shining a light on the quiet power of the Feminine, these images transform personal daily rituals and those everyday domestic tasks often called “women’s work” into moments of great beauty and dignity.ation.
Carole Barrer & Mark Butler
June 6 – 29
Opening Reception: First Thursday, June 6, 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Expanse highlights two artists who explore space and color through meditations on nature, Carole Barrer and Mark Butler. Barrer’s paintings convey a sense of natural phenomena with interplay of color. Small intricacies of nature such as a wisp of cirrus cloud, transformed by changing light; filtered green sunlight in a deep forest; breeze rippled water; the variegated fur of a dog’s haunch are abstractly portrayed in her works.
Inspired by the sublime qualities of nature, Mark Butler’s atmospheric landscape paintings reveal his creative vision through loose layers of calligraphic brushwork that create pictorial depth which is both intimate and expansive. Subtle traces of color and form suggest a hillside, dense foliage, or the water’s edge attuning the viewer to memory, meditation, and meaning that is open for interpretation.
April 4 – 27
In Wander, Seattle-area artist Christine Sharp shows recent oil paintings that meld abstraction with representation of the landscape. Her vivid paintings interpret the topography of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Through use of bold color and pattern she translates her scenes. Fragmented forms are arranged into harmonious compositions, where unconventional shapes and colors that interlock to ultimately define the scene.
March 7 – 30
Ever-inventive and experimental, Seattle artist Richard Morhous will be exhibiting a new collection of paintings within The Color of Light dominated by active line work informed by the process of drawing. A testament to the power of color and his ability to render dynamic light, the artist’s newest works are explorations of urban spaces and geometric forms which balance on the cusp of abstraction and minimalism.
John Lysak & Kent Lovelace
January 24 – March 2
Harris Harvey Gallery presents Natural Dialogue, a dual artist exhibition celebrating the works of Northwest artists John Lysak and Kent Lovelace (1953-2017).

Harris Harvey Gallery is pleased to present Northwest Landscape Paintings and Early Prints, which brings together two spheres of Thomas Wood’s artistic production. Recent oil paintings of the Washington landscape are exhibited alongside a collection of prints from early in his artistic career. Intaglio printmaking and oil painting are pursuits that he maintains simultaneously, balancing the meticulous detail of copper plate etching with the looser touch of his painterly oils.
