Northwest artist Eido, who goes by only one name, exhibits a series of watercolor paintings in “An Art Show for Squares” through Sept. 24 at Lynnwood Library Gallery, 19200 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood.

Eido is a visual artist and musician. After studying at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, Eido spent some time in Japan teaching music and playing in jazz nightclubs. There, he was introduced to art by Akiko Mori and by Mariko Asada.

Eido has previously exhibited at the University of Washington School of Medicine. His work can be viewed at

Art buffet A new show at Meyer’s Cafe offers artistic delights from local veteran artists such as Jules Anslow, Kim Groff Harrington and Sue Ellen Longwell. Shwoing for the first time is Christine Fox.

Thirty-four pieces of work are on display through August at Meyer’s Cafe, 1700 W. Marine View Drive, Everett.

Shiny stuff: Fused glass art by Camano Island artist Mary Simmons is as varied as mixed-media ornate metal, fused glass wall panels, and whimsical kites and kayaks.

Simmons, who is self-taught, was among the artists who opened their home studios for the annual Mother’s Day Studio tour.

“Glass Art by Mary Simmons” is on view through September at Islander’s Restaurant, 848 N. Sunrise Blvd., Camano Island.

Every dog has his day: Roger Jones likes to incorporate plants and animals in realistic compositions. He shows these types of artwork in his current exhibit, along with paintings of the new off-leash dog park in Mountlake Terrace.

Jones, who was born in Ellensberg, has a master of fine arts degree from the University of Washington and taught art classes in the Edmonds School District through 1967. Jones’ work is included in many corporate collections.

His show runs through Aug. 31 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W., Mountlake Terrace.

Working in tandem: Cindy and Starr Praeuner work in digital media and glass and, though each has a creativity that tends to accent the other’s style, both artists reflect vivid color and imaginative perspective in their photography as well as their digital art and their stained, leaded and fused glass.

Meet these artists during the Everett Art Walk from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday at WiseDesignz Custom Framing &Fine Art Gallery, 2908 Wetmore Ave., Everett.

Into the abyss: Briana Knight, a 2004 Mountlake Terrace High School graduate, has an imagination that turns to the depths of the sea, a largely unknown world.

Working with fibers, Knight uses movement and color inspired by the mysterious deep and combines techniques of original drawings, digital photography, print making, screen-printing, painting and stitching.

Knight is showcasing “Terra Incognita,” her work based on the sea, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday during the Edmonds gallery walk at Fabric of Life, 523 Main St., Edmonds. Her artwork will be on view through Sept. 15.
