Frame shop features gallery of student artwork
by Jeff Switzer
A plethora of local talent will be featured at the grand opening of FrameWright in Bothell, where 15-25 student artists from Woodinville, Bothell, and Inglemoor High Schools and the Secondary Alternative School will be showing their work in a gallery setting.
Lynn Asmann, owner of FrameWright, said they charged the students only the cost of the materials. "The idea was to give the art students the opportunity to see what is required of them to make a living in art," Asmann said. "Fine arts students never really have the opportunity to try out their fields."
The students were required to title their pieces, sell themselves a little, and some have priced their work for sale.
The students will be holding a showing for their families and art teachers from the Northshore School district Sunday, Mar. 3, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at 18104 102nd Ave. NE, Bothell, just off of Main Street.
The frame shop opens for business Tuesday, Mar. 5, and will be open Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will feature the students' work through mid-April.
Artists include: WHS students Erin Letterman, Mike Olson, Megan Krogh, and Andrea Wentz; BHS students Tricia Baker, Kathleen Asmann, Steve Durias, and Peter Popp.
Art teachers Cindra Avery (BHS), Lynne Saad (WHS), Judith Deford (IHS), and Lanny Woods (SAS) also helped connect the artists with the shop.
