OFFICIAL 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY – Starring Melissa Cole’s NEW LINE Of Encaustics


WHO: Melissa has won huge commissions all over the Pacific Northwest – from Idaho to Alaska – and we get to host her newest medium: encaustics! These beauties involve melted wax – wow!

WHAT: Melissa will also show some of her classic gorgeous, colorful, detailed paintings of nature (and its varied inhabitants). If you’ve ever seen that massive mural outside of Marmot then you’ll recognize her style!

FUTURE ARTISTS: Marmot Art Space hosts incredible local artists and amazing local projects – a healthy mix of established and emerging artists, as well as projects that help to make Spokane a better place to visit, work, live, love, strive, and play.

The community will continue to play a role in suggesting artists and projects – not just the artistic community, but voices from the entire community will be heard. Marshall will have the final say. We are not currently seeking artists, as the response has been enormous already and 2017-2018 is almost completely booked.

When we decide on an artist, we’re looking for the total package: a person who is not just hugely talented, but also a wonderful human being – honest, positive, hard-working, caring, open and more than anything, someone willing and able to collaborate. Any show at Marmot is a collaboration between Marshall and the artist. Any artist that we choose to work with must understand the benefits of collaboration and be prepared to put in the time, energy, care, and attention that will result in an amazingly successful show. The focus is not just making and mounting the art, but to the entire collaborative process, an undertaking that draws on our distinctive talents and creates something singular and remarkable in the process. Both the artist and Marshall have unique skill sets and we’re excited to see the magic that is the natural result of two talented people working off each other’s strengths.
