Beachcombing through the supra tidal, the area of beach just above the high tide mark, Matt Sellars cleared up debris and sketched his finds. While reflecting upon landscapes both past and present, Sellars was also to study cloud formations, think about maritime disasters and consider the coastline when it was once inhabited by the native Suquamish people. The result is a show of terra cotta boats, wooden cloud sculptures and drawings that record those visits.
