Cecelia DeLeon

Cecelia DeLeon is a visual artist born and raised in Seattle, WA and works under the alias Mousy DeVilla. She studied Design at Cornish College of the Arts, utilizing her design background to convey ideas through her 3D installations, paintings, and digital illustrations. Working from her South King County home, and as an Artist in Residence at Earthseed Studios on Beacon Hill, she creates evocative responses to the tensions of ChicanX Culture and current political and social conflicts of the US. She has fiercely pursued the creative path of becoming more involved in public arts such as doing murals seen in Lake City and traffic boxes in Kent and White Center, and has gotten more involved in arts advocacy in schools. She has trained with TAT LAB (Teaching Artist Training) and transitioned into a Teaching Artist through Arts Corps. She does this work while building community with other art organizations such as Creative Justice, Coyote Central and Urban Artworks.
Gabriel Marquez

Gabriel Marquez is an artist and designer living and working in Seattle. At the University of Texas at El Paso, Marquez double majored in Painting and Graphic Design, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art (2012). As an artist, Marquezs work takes on a fluid approach, the artwork he creates is mostly free form. Marquezs artwork explores themes of motion and stillness by using progressive contour lines in a pictorial realm that wanders between emptiness and fullness. The artwork although still, creates a continuous movement with the use of linear forms. Known for his intricate line drawings of fantastically surreal beings and dreamscapes, Marquez often works intuitively and allows the markings he creates to bring about the final outcome of the compositions imagery.
Sabah Al-Dhaher

Sabah Al-Dhaher was born in Nasriyah, Iraq. At the age of fifteen he was accepted to The Fine Arts Institute-Basra in Iraq, where he lived and received his training in classical art. Sabah fled Iraq in 1991 due to his involvement in a failed uprising against the regime of Saddam Hussein at the end of the first Gulf war. He spent two and a half years in a refugee camp in the desert of Saudi Arabia and in 1993 he came to the USA as a political refugee. Sabah has been creating and exhibiting his work throughout the Northwest since 1995. Sabah's story has been chronicled in various media including The New York Times in an article by Timothy Eagen, "My Saraab", a documentary by Sarna Lapine, and featured in the book "100 Artists of the Northwest".
