6 PM- 8 PM
Events at Rectangle Gallery
Covid has put a damper on our events this year, but they will be back and better than ever.
When we are able, we will gather together (well-masked and practicing social distancing) to celebrate the Gallery artists and our guest artists on First Fridays and taking part in downtown and community events.
Until that time we will be open until 6:30 pm every First Friday, open late for special downtown shopping events and for classes and art experiences.

Trudes has been playing with clay for over twenty years, mainly creating hand-built functional and sculptural vessels. She is guided by the Japanese aesthetic principle of Wabi Sabi, which finds beauty and perfection in the temporal nature of all things — the beautiful art of decay. She heavily textures her pieces, often stretching and pushing the clay body to the point of almost breaking.
Her desire is to have folks engage with her pieces, picking them up, touching, and feeling for the rough places and the smooth places in each vessel. She has had her pieces shown in various exhibits, including the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival (2017 and 2018).
