Timothy Karpinski & Mia Nolting At Flatcolor.

Timothy Karpinski

Portland artist Timothy Karpinski is no newcomer to Seattle’s art scene, and First Thursday this month (June 3rd, 2010) marks the date of his solo show at Flatcolor Gallery. On hand will be scores of his delicately paper-cut images, as well as some large-scale pieces as well as building a small sailboat for the show’s theme, Let’s Sail Away.

On his art, Karpinski says:

From a young age ive always been making things. Building forts turned into building skate ramps which lead to building art installations. I love the art making process, from the initial spark of the “idea”, the creation to the finished product. Art for me is very personal and everything i make is a direct reflection on my feelings about this world and my struggle and fascination with trying to understand it and find my purpose within it. I currently live, love and work in Portland oregon where i run Together Gallery and work in my studio till very late at night making art about love. I am also figuring things out 🙂


Mia Nolting

This June will also feature works by Mia Nolting, an artist whose works are visually-appealing, sure, but also just cute, clever, and full of one-liners and typography.
