The CultureShock Collective presents the dark, whimsical works of Seattle-based artist Laura Castellanos. A colorful, primal cast of characters from her Tender Buttons and Cake + Ashes series will be on display at the corner of 9th and Commerce.

Castellanos' works capture the personalities of a series of characters that range from wistful and tender, to strange and mysterious. Her glamorously gritty acrylic paintings and mixed media soft sculptures are magically intriguing and will leave viewers spellbound!
