Recommended by Emma (Marketing & Communications Manager): Art Hansen is so widely loved in this region, for good reason. I've always felt his smaller, simpler, black and white pieces are underrated, and knew I had to include one. I love this one for how imperfect the view is, with only a tiny bit of water showing and a tree obstructing the sunset. It's a view I feel I've seen many times before and it's dear to me.

Recommended by Emma (Marketing & Communications Manager): Obata has left some room for interpretation in this piece, and when I look at it I see an entire world within a tide pool, as if I'm looking towards the sky from the bed of the pool, and there's a bird flying above. The textures, liness, and movement within the piece all come together in a satisfying way.
