From the beginning people have relied on myths and legends to give explanation of the world around them. From providing a framework for understanding natural phenomena, to giving voice to every step in the journey of life from birth, to death traditions, myths and legends give us context, keeping us steady as we take each step toward the future, the unknown. Today we also have our myths & legends, we call them psychology, or biology, or science. Names change, but the stories remain.
For this show, Esther focused on re-telling these ancient tales in a new light, using her own unique style and imagination to bring them to life. Whether you are a fan of science fiction & fantasy, or simply a lover of great storytelling, you will find something to inspire and delight in this collection.
Stop by the Liberty Gallery in the Historic Liberty Building in June to experience this great show ~ open daily from 11am to 7pm. The First Friday reception is June 2, 2023; 5pm–9pm.
Pottery Place Plus is pleased to present Spokane mixed media artist Ann Austin and Liberty Lake fiber artist Dianne McDermott as our guest artists in June '23.
Ann uses the found beauty and repeating patterns of the natural world in her collage and mixed media, overlaying and combining colors & patterns in the manner of a puzzle coming into focus with each new piece. She incorporates found images and papers, and also her own monoprints and photos, resulting in a visual and emotional experience that brings a moment of joyful surprise.
Dianne uses her art background as an illustrator and graphic artist in designing her backpacks, purses & bags. She often researches designer fabrics to compile a theme, then adds beadwork and embroidery to the uniqueness of each creation.
Stop by our shop & gallery this June to view the work of Ann Austin & Dianne McDermott ~ we are located in the Historic Liberty Building at 203 N. Washington St in downtown Spokane.

How Hawaiʻi became the epicenter of the biotech seed industry, and how a resistance movement arose to confront the industry’s power.
Join us and Andrea Brower to learn about her book Seeds of Occupation, Seeds of Possbility: The Agrochemical-GMO Industry in Hawai'i!
Sunday, June 4th at 5pm at Auntie's Bookstore (402 W Main Ave).
This event is free and open to the public.RSVP at https://www.auntiesbooks.com/event/agrochemical-gmo-industry-hawaii-andrea-brower!
About the book
Hawaiʻi is a primary site for development of herbicide-resistant corn seed and, until recently, was host to more experimental field trials of genetically engineered crops than anywhere else in the world. It is also a node of powerful resistance. While documentaries and popular news stories have profiled the biotech seed industry in Hawaiʻi, Seeds of Occupation, Seeds of Possibility is the first book to detail the social and historical conditions by which the chemical-seed oligopoly came to occupy the most geographically isolated islands in the world and made the soils of Hawaiʻi the epicenter of agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology testing.
Andrea Brower, an activist-scholar from Hawaiʻi, examines the consequences related to genetically engineered seed development for Hawaiʻi’s people and the social movement that has risen in response. With insights beyond the islands, Seeds of Occupation, Seeds of Possibility illuminates why visions for a radically better world must be expanded by intersectional and systemically oriented movements.
