    Merrilee Moore’s “Continuum,” a stainless steel and glass sculpture, is among the works of 25 Northwest artists featured in an exhibit at the Matzke Fine Art Gallery and Sculpture Park on Camano Island through April 13.

Sculptor Karla Matzke of Camano Island helped national author E. Ashley Rooney write the recently released coffee table book "100 Artists of the Northwest."
Rooney has written other books highlighting regional artists in New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Midwest and the South.
Beginning March 1, the Matzke Fine Art Gallery and Sculpture Park features 25 of the 100 artists featured in the Northwest book. A book signing, opening party and potluck goes from 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday. The gallery and park are at 2345 Blanche Way on Camano Island.
People can see the show on weekends through April 13.
The 25 artists showing represent the artistic vibrancy of the Northwest region, Matzke said.
"Using paint, sculpture, glass, oil, clay, wood and other contemporary mediums, these 21st century artists combine, redesign, and transform their materials into pieces of works that change the way we perceive art in the Northwest," Matzke said.
The artists, including Matzke, are Sabah Al-Dhaher of Seattle, Liana Bennett of Bothell, Brian Berman of Bainbridge Island, Lance Carleton of Lake Stevens, Shirley Erickson of Bellingham, Kathleen Faulkner of Anacortes, Aaron Haba of Camano Island, Karen Hackenberg of Port Townsend, Phillip Levine of Burien, James Madison of Tulalip, Lin McJunkin of Conway, Merrilee Moore of Seattle, Richard Nash of Oak Harbor, Peregrine O'Gormley of La Conner, Doug Randall of Portland, Debbi Rhodes of Camano Island, David Ridgway of Bellingham, Sue Roberts of Guemes Island, Ethan Stern of Seattle, Donna Watson of Camano Island and Bill Wentworth of Poulsbo.
The book, which includes a guide to galleries, sculpture parks, museums and schools, is available for sale for $38 at the gallery.
On April 25, 26 and 27, Matzke will host her Stone Carving Workshop and Retreat for beginning carvers and more experienced sculptors.
Instruction by master carver Alexandra Morosco will cover history, concepts, processes, techniques, materials and tools associated with the creation of three dimensional forms in stone.
