2014 Best of Jury Winner - Karsten Boysen - Port Orchard, WA
Karsten Boysen holds Bachelor degrees in art and education, and a Masters of Fine Arts degree, all from the University of Washington. His sculptures are created from recycled steel found in scrap yards. A bend, burned steel frame of a mobile home that was destroyed in a fire inspired him to see the beauty in loss. The shapes of the steel damaged by fire created a visual foundation for his art that continues to evolve today.
The artist has numerous large public percent-for-art and private art commissions in Alaska, Washington, Oregon and Arizona. He formerly instructed art at the University of Washington, the University of Alaska, Juneau; and was Washington State Arts Commission Artist-in-Residence at the Seward Park Art Studio in Seattle.
Boysen explains his art in the manner of a native Alaska artist who worked with ivory. ‘To make a bear, start with a piece of ivory and cut everything away that does not look like a bear,’” he says.
Art & Wine Bop 5pm to 9pm .This event will feature festival artists, live music,and wine tasting inside participating NorthWest Crossing restaurants and retailers. Musicians will play live music 5:00-9:00pm in the cozy confines of these neighborhood businesses. Starting from 5pm and ending at 11pm, the first block of NorthWest Crossing Drive at Mt. Washington, on the Peak 104.1fm Mainstage, will be a free concert featuring 2nd Hand Soldiers at 5pm, Hobbs the Band at 7pm and Larry and His Flask at 9:30pm.
