Solie’s Featured Artist Matthew Barnes

Matthew Barnes recently moved to Seattle from Ontario Canada where he grew up. He describes the Seattle area as, “Cottage like, with many trees and mountains.” Working in the IT industry is what brought him to Washington however, the easy access to hiking and scenery just might keep him here for awhile. “This year my goal is to hike all the trails around the Mountain Loop Highway. I find myself revisiting favorite hikes I like.”

When he isn’t working as a software programmer or hiking with his dachshund, Matt will spend time rally racing. Many of his action shots are of the races. For the Everett Artwalk he has selected a handful of nature photographs. Island foxes and stoic wolves are among the animals on display through November. All prints on display are available for previewing Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm at Solie Funeral Home lobby.

Additional guest artists include: Debbie McCoy, Meghan McSwain and Karen Heistand
