Sarah Utter

Artist Bio:

I was born in 1975. Before the age of two, I had lived in Tanzania, Iceland, Nova Scotia, and Detroit, as my father was an underwater welder for a Canadian shipping firm. Then we moved to Olympia. I wanted to be an ornithologist, but was better at drawing than scientific inquiry. I’’ve never been on a waterslide. I was, however, part of the world’s longest banana split. My favorite books are The Big Orange Splot and My Antonia and Flappy The Circus Seal. I live in a cabin overlooking the Puget Sound with two dogs and two cats and one human. I walk in the woods every day. I saw a whale in our inlet but nobody believes me. It took me 12 years to graduate from college. Go figure.

Hand-set letterpress prints,  made using reclaimed paper at Community Print in Olympia. they are 8 1/2 x 11″, and framed in simple wood. Artist website:

Prints $20 Each


Artist Bio:

Hukee, a native to Olympia, loves wood, the smell of ink, paper, and collections of all kinds. These loves make the marriage with letterpressing a perfect union.

My prints typically focus on declarations and proclamations, questioning that which is stasis and moving into the unknown.

Each print is printed a very limited number of times on an old Vandercook #14 proofing press, with each print hand-inked and hand-rolled at Community Print in downtown Olympia. If you would like to learn the art of letterpress on this old machine, please find the Community Print page on Facebook. I offer letterpress proficiencies about 6 times a year to community members for a small price that covers the rent for the space anf the cost of buying new supplies for the shop. You can also contact me directly if you are interested in prints at Let me know you saw my prints at the POWER art sale and 50% will go to POWER for the incredibly important woman-centered, anti-oppression that they do toward a truly just tomorrow.

Prints $15 Each

Jennifer Kuhns

Artist Bio:

I have been working in mosaic since 2000, creating custom architectural installation and fine art panels, with a focus on sustainability. Installation work includes backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, stair risers, entryways, window treatments and more. Fine art panels are for sale at Matter! Gallery in Olympia, WA and at Frank n Dunya gallery in Seattle, WA. I also have a selection of unique mosaic art jewelry at both locations. I love the tactile nature of mosaic, and the process of breaking or cutting materials to create something whole out of fragments. I work in bright colors and organic hues, abstract and representational designs, creating flat, shimmering surfaces or highly textured, 3-dimensional work. Mosaic has a wide variety of applications, and nearly unlimited technique. It is one of the most ancient mediums, yet it is breaking new ground in the contemporary art world, and I can’t stop exploring.
