Meet the Jury
Laura Brodax – Laura Brodax is a ceramic artist. She combines local history and surroundings to customize her story on tile murals and porcelain wares. Inspired by traditional ceramic transferware, early photographic techniques and nature, she uses photographic imagery and the printed line to bring ideas forward through screen printing glaze on porcelain. Laura lives and works in Shoreline, Washington, where she recently opened the storefront studio Modern Glaze. Laura is a graduate of the University of Washington with a fine arts degree in Ceramic Art.
Jessie Brugger – I grew up in Auburn Washington and started my undergraduate degree for painting and drawing at Western Washington University before I transferred to Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. I completed my graduate degree at the New York Academy of Art, In New York City. When I graduated from there I was honored a residency in Giverny, France, where I started doing stop motion animation. My first animation was awarded Best Animation in the New York International Film Festival. I was awarded a studio in Manhattan at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Studio Program. I am currently living in Tacoma, Washington and teach at Green River College. Some of the classes I teach are Drawing, Animation, Art and Feminism and Beginning Design.

Meet the Jury

Amy holds a BFA in graphic design from James Madison University (Virginia), is a member of Seattle Print Arts, and shows her work nationally in group and solo shows. She is currently working on a series of prints made using non-recyclable plastic scraps, calling into question our need for these items and exploring the possibility of a less-wasteful approach to the everyday business of living. She prints in her private studio (Amada Press), teaches letterpress printing at Seattle’s School of Visual Concepts, and was a 2018 recipient of the Artist Trust GAP Award.

Get involved! Join our Arts Committee
Are you an artist? Do you love art of all kinds? We need community members with a knowledge and love of art to help plan and execute quarterly art shows. This would involve occasional evening meetings to plan shows, hanging quarterly art shows, staffing art show openings, and more.
We are also looking for artists to serve as jurors for our 2019 art shows. Interested in either (or both!) opportunities? Contact Krissie Dillon at [email protected] to learn more.
The Phinney Center Gallery and arts program is funded in part by 4Culture.
