Photographer’s work takes a shot at healing

Two artists and former students of the photography program at Everett Community College will be exhibiting their work starting Wednesday in Seattle.

Regan Scheiber, Snohomish County’s Woman of the Year in Sports in 2001, and Craig Barber will be featured at Benham Gallery, 1216 First Ave., Seattle. A reception is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. April 10.

For more information, call 206-622-2480 or visit The show runs through May 12.

Scheiber created “cyanotype photograms” from her first-born’s clothing. These are like blueprints and the vintage children’s clothing images appear in a ghostly impression. See her work at

Scheiber concluded a 20-year swimming career with a solo swim across the English Channel in 2001 while three months pregnant.

Barber is a Vietnam veteran who used photography to help him recover from his tour of duty. His moody pictures capture an exotic landscape. His work can be seen at

Small-scale complexity: Artist Frederic Wong’s exhibit “Non Action Painting” begins Monday and runs through April 27 at the Edmonds Community College Art Gallery.

A reception is planned from 5 to 7 p.m. April 20 with violinist Rachel Wong and refreshments prepared by College Culinary Arts. The free event is at the gallery at Lynnwood Hall, 20000 68th Ave. W., Lynnwood.

Wong’s work is created by letting tea or another pigment stain ceramic tiles. These works look as if nature has created them because the artist has stepped aside to let the tea flow across the tile. The paintings are small, with complex levels of details.

Following his dream: A former lawyer turned restaurant owner turned artist, Zuolie Deng now devotes his time to painting, calligraphy, carving and poetry and will present his work during an April exhibition.

The exhibit begins Tuesday and runs through April 30 at the Edmonds Arts Festival Museum. Deng will also demonstrate his painting techniques from 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 19 at the museum, 700 Main St., Edmonds. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 425-771-1984 or 425-771-0228.

Deng, owner of Lo Ya Chai Studio in Seattle, uses mainly ink, color and rice paper and is influenced by music when he paints. His paintings include landscapes, flowers, birds, animals, figurative motifs and bamboo.

Spring has sprung: The Arts of Snohomish Gallery’s April exhibit is “Weave-N-Paint – The Art of Spring.”

The exhibit opens Tuesday and runs through April 30 at the gallery, 105 Cedar Ave., Snohomish. A reception is scheduled from 5 to 7:30 p.m. April 14. Reservations are required. Call 360-568-8648. Parking and admission are free.
