Westy Copeland
The work of Westy Caswell Copeland is most often described as “whimsical, happy” art. Her brightly colored paintings, often depicting pensive women, many with various animals on their heads, strive to communicate a wise yet humorous look at life. Over 35 years of painting, printing, and collaging have turned Westy’s personal visions into a language of colors and layers that will leave you smiling.

Shun Jie Yong
Shun is a second-generation Chinese immigrant from Malaysia and also a resident alien in the United States; he is a portrait photographer who documents immigrants and refugees in the United States and in Malaysia.His goal is to honor immigrants and refugees, to have them present themselves as they want to be seen, but not necessarily as we typically see them.

Arianne Zager
Her large-scale pop surreal watercolor work represents a skewed depiction of feminine beauty. All of Arianne’s work is composed from natural waterways, such as rivers and oceans from her travels to over 40 countries.

Olli Johnson
Shoots & Roots// A Forest in Four Stories is an interactive display of kinetic dioramas and paper sculpture that come to life with the turn of a crank. Using flat layers of cut paper in hree dimensions, Olli whimsically illustrates the vertical layers of a forest in four distinct scenes. Olli is an aspiring paper engineer, pop up book artist, and maker of automata with a background in theater and puppetry.

Art at 801 Gallery, in 801 Lofts, promotes art and music to neighborhood residents and art lovers thru periodic openings and gallery presentations.
