You're invited to attend and view original mixed-media artist Lori Knight whose work incorporates vintage photos, treasures found, mixed papers, acrylics, oil pastels, and more to convey a variety of nostalgic stories. Her artwork began as a form of self-expression and family research as she tried to preserve her mother's wild memories and stories about family, and the quirky, humorous nature of the work is often a direct reaction to those stories.

Along with creating her own artwork, Lori Knight, along with her husband Eric, is a co-owner of Knight Visions Art Gallery. They currently focus their efforts on custom framing, but they have been selling, promoting, marketing, and framing art in the South Snohomish County area since 1987.
