The Jefferson Museum of Art & History in Port Townsend is currently featuring “Pat and Peter Simpson: Collectors and Patrons,” based on Pat and Peter Simpson’s art collection. It will present the work of nine artists: Tom Wilson, Jo Ann Alber, Kate Jenks, Anne Hirondelle, Stephanie Lutgring, Stephen Yates, Linda Okazaki, Galen Garwood, and Ed Cain.
The exhibit features pieces from the Simpson collection, which is mostly from the mid-1980s, along with works of the same artists from later points in their careers.
Stephen Yates created a large painting, Navigator’s Strategy, specifically for the exhibit.
“By showing some more contemporary work we get a little bit of a survey of those artists and how their work has progressed,” said curator Ann Welch.
