Judith Kindler

It is a rare occurrence that we will purchase a piece of artwork for display in the gallery.  Most works are consigned by the artist.  However, of late we have purchased more and more works.  Of those works is an exquisite piece titled Random Acts and Laws.  It was completed by much lauded artist Judith Kindler and sold originally in 2001.

We had brushes of fate with this piece as it had come across our desk twice before in 2010.  Finally, at an auction in 2011 looking to acquire another work by a different artist we had yet another brush of fate.  This time was different than the previous encounters. Something about the piece spoke with more clarity on this occasion and the beauty and importance of this work was at once very clear.

We purchased it.  What once was the treasure of a downsized collection was now front and center in our personal collection.  It is in the gallery every day and every day we marvel at its mystery.  It is a wonderfully executed piece by a loved Northwest painter.  The first of what would be a long line of encaustic works by which Judith Kindler would become famed for, it is a work of historic importance.

We encourage all who read this to come in and witness this tremendous work in person.  The gallery is open from 9:30AM to 8:00PM daily and located at 800 Bellevue Way NE Suite 150 in Bellevue.
