January Featured Artist: Gretchen Leggitt

We are more than stoked to have the amazingly talented local artist, Gretchen Leggitt as our featured artist for the month of January!

Her outdoor-inspired artwork can be seen all over downtown Bellingham including the Culture Cafe, Hundred North, Mt. Baker Theatre, Vital Climbing Gym and Ciao Thyme. Recently her mural on Cornwall Avenue gained widespread attention as the largest mural in Washington State!

We have a collection of pyrography pieces in house outfitting the walls inspired by mountain landscapes from around the world that Gretchen has travelled to as well as local destinations.

What is pyrography? Pyrography is the detailed and complicated art of burning designs into wood. As you can imagine, burning pictures and patterns into wood leaves little room for error, adding to the intricacy and complexity of her artwork.

Hydrascape stickers are also on display, created by Gretchen with similar mountain landscapes that can be seen in her paintings and pyrography. Made from durable vinyl that is waterproof, UV protected and dishwasher safe, they are designed to wrap around water bottles to create an infinite landscape. These durable stickers also look great on coolers, skis, snowboards, laptops and car windows.

Come in to the bistro before the end of January to check out the amazing artwork of Gretchen Leggitt. Pieces on the wall are available for sale (pick up at the end of the month) and stickers in the front are available for immediate purchase.
