New at Annie's: Charley Harper

Charles Harper (1922-2007) was a Cincinnati-based artist who made more than 50 designs for conservation groups and national parks throughout the U.S. Describing his own work, he once said, “I don’t try to put everything in, I try to leave everything out.” Annie's is happy to feature his artwork in our windows this month, in addition to carrying cards, calendars, and puzzles in the store.

Shelly Engels Artwalk

Shelly Engels will be exhibiting her architectural photographs on aluminum this month at Annie’s. She is a self-taught artist from Ballard who pushes the elements of traditional photography, using both film and digital media to create her beautiful textural pieces. The use of aluminum instead of photo paper provides a sheen and layers of depth. The metal also enhances the surface inequalities of the architectural relief, which is her subject matter. Come view these intriguing and beautiful photographs and meet the artist!
