The art of the outdoors comes inside to Union Station: An exhibit of the works of Ethan Jack Harrington

Publish Date

The world of Sound Transit as seen through the eyes of plein-air oil painter---and resident artist--- Ethan Jack Harrington is a world of bright colors and unique images. The public is invited to view some of these images at a special one-night exhibit Thursday June 6 in the Great Hall of Seattle's Union Station.

Ethan Jack Harrington has been commissioned as a Sound Transit resident artist for one-year. His primary purpose is to communicate information about ST projects and progress through the creation of colorful paintings that appeal to a broad audience. The result will be a series of gallery-quality oils to be exhibited and used in local jurisdictions where ST projects are being built, at Sound Transit sites, on the agency's Web site and in publications. In fact, a Harrington rendition of the new Everett Station is featured on the cover of the latest Sound Transit Get Ready to Ride Guide.

What, you may ask, is a "plein-air oil painter?" Harrington explains, "I set up my easel on sidewalks, rooftops or in open fields and paint my surroundings quickly in order to capture the mood of the moment."
