Megan Marie Myers: Inks and Acrylics
Laced with the innocence and nostalgia of a children’s picture book, this body of work explores our bittersweet flights in and out of love and our search for happiness.
The complexities of these pursuits are stripped away by the simple, happy-go-lucky images of children —building a contented atmosphere where viewers can more easily embrace their own struggles while finding the beauty within each one.
These works encourage us to look forward with innocence toward the happiness that waits, perhaps, only a few miles ahead.
Megan Myers graduated from Seattle University in 2005 with a BA in Visual Arts. She frequently shows her work in cafes and art walks in the Seattle and Portland areas and has painted murals in Washington, Oregon and Central America.

Jessie Heaven Lotz: Eerie Aerials
The works on display at the Metrix Create : Space reflect Jessie's love of tiny things, big things, and eerie things. Most of the pieces are aerial views captured somewhere on flight paths between Seattle and North Palm Beach, Florida. The photographs are mounted on cradled canvas and sealed with epoxy resin, thus, these works are perfect for low-fuss art enthusiasts. (They can be dusted by wiping the surface on one's pants.)
Jessie is a photographer and illustrator with an anomalous background. She received a degree in physics, and later a certificate in scientific illustration, from the University of Washington. She is currently taking classes towards a certificate in Medical Assisting. However, the most important part of her education took place in elementary school where she spent many hours drawing unicorns and princesses and antagonizing her drill team instructor. Her first photographs, circa 1989, were of the horses on the other side of the playground fence.

Amy Johnston: Teeny Tiny Robot Army
The beauty of jewelry lies in its ability to represent both personal symbolism and public image. Amy Johnston explores this duality in her work conceptually and literally, frequently including a secret in a piece only the wearer knows about, whether it is the ability to wear each piece in multiple configurations or an element hidden from viewers. Her love for adorning the body leads her to create artfully designed jewelry influenced by mythology, pop culture and childhood memories.
Her current body of work, a Teeny Tiny Robot Army, explores the effects technological and scientific advancements have on contemporary identity. Recently, the army stopped at the circus for entertainment, only to find themselves part of the show.
