Mary Iverson
(American, born 1966)

Location: Peninsula College, Port Angeles

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Mary Iverson's painting is inspired by the Port of Seattle's container terminal—represented here by a complex network of overlapping planes and dramatic perspective lines—and its implications of industry and accumulation.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Peninsula College.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Mary Iverson lives and works in Seattle, Washington. Her paintings explore the balance between the natural world and industrial activities, inspiring conversations about the causes and consequences of climate change. Her main sources of inspiration are close to her home: the beautiful Port of Seattle, and three magnificent National Parks (Rainier, Olympic, and North Cascades National Parks). Mary teaches visual art at Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon, Western Washington, where she is a tenured faculty member.
