Two mixed media artists come together to explore storytelling through paper art and mixed media.

Kelda Martensen maintains a studio practice focused in the paper, book and print arts and serves as full time visual arts faculty and department coordinator at North Seattle College. Kelda received her MFA in Visual Art from the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Art at Washington University in St. Louis. Recent awards include the Larry Sommers Art Fellowship Merit Award and residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris, France. Kelda’s works aim to communicate the unresolved and to illuminate the poetics of home and displacement.

Melanie Reed’s work focuses on surrealist collage composed exclusively of found paper fragments. By carefully seeking out found materials, her work elevates the everyday and inspires a multiplicity of connections. Each piece is handmade, though seamless, and contains a solid, versatile composition without sacrificing the tactile qualities that reflect the hand of the artist.
