“SOLD” this week at MOSA!

Artwork by James Frye


We had another happy customer at MOSA this week who purchased the “Soul of Pepperland” by Autism Artist James Frye.  James is also a Synesthetes, he has the ability to hear colors. Heavily influenced by his father’s love of vintage vinyl records, he has been listening to bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, and other popular bands from the 60’s and 70’s – and his art demonstrates this. Progressive in his form, channeling a different era, he is a true “Futuristic Throwback” Artist.  Congratulations James!

MOSA Community Wall

At the Museum of Special Art there is a Community Wall which features student K-12 art and artwork created by local disability community organizations.  The MOSA Community Wall gives exhibition opportunities to these organizations so these beautiful works of art can be enjoyed by everyone in our community.

Currently, the wall is featuring artwork created by the All Aboard organization and work that was created at Creative Connections; an event that was hosted by Mary Peterson.


MOSA Community Wall

Artist Melissa Yeakel created this painting in April during the Creative Connections event in Lynnwood where she participated in an art activity in which the artists were taught how to drip paint in the style of Jackson Pollock.  Melissa really embraced this activity and made her own canvas at the event.  This piece was exhibited on the MOSA Community wall and Melissa recently had the opportunity to sell this piece.

MOSA Grand Opening July 23, 2016


Ink Stomp Prints Courtesy of Art Instructor Mary Peterson – these prints were artistically made by a group of artists who used various instruments as stomping on paper adhered to the floor with their feet and rolling their wheelchairs and walkers across the paper to create these most beautiful unique prints.

Now Showing, Heartfelt Possibilities Exhibition July 23 to October 24, 2016


The Museum of Special Art had a wonderful Grand Opening day with a great turn out and positive support from our community!  We had several artists at the opening for a meet and greet the artists event.  Many of our community members commented on how nice it was to meet some of the artists personally stating it added a personal touch to their work.  The artists had a great day and sold many small gift items, mugs, cards, and prints.


Michele Wilkinson volunteered at MOSA to help us with our raffle item and donations.  The blue print to the left of Michelle looks like it was created by one artist but this painting was created by a team of 4 artists and is called “Friends”.  The raffle winner will receive a print of this work. Thank you Michelle!


Whittaker, Domenowske, & James (not pictured – Gregory) are the artists who created “Friends”.



We give a special thank you to ArtWorks Director, Meredith Arnold who spearheaded our sales team!  (Pictured here:  Michelle Wilkinson, Jen Mohr and Meredith Arnold)

Our community had a great day of shopping and previewing the Heartfelt Possibilities Exhibit!


On Exhibition, we have the work of Pacific Northwest Artist, David Baker.  Since the 1990’s, David has mastered the technique of utilizing photography and the computer to create the most beautiful masterpieces of digital artwork.  David’s work has been exhibited throughout the west coast and has been published in several national magazines.

The Heartfelt Possibilities exhibition is proud to present the work of International Artist Gaetene Cummings who is from Quebec, Canada.   Gaetene has a background in graphic design and communication.  Her discovery of Chinese calligraphy led her on a journey of painting.

Gaetene’s beautiful and lovely creations are so whimsical and moving and definitely should not be missed.  Gaetene’s work has been exhibited in many museums throughout the country.  MOSA has the rare opportunity to bring to the Pacific Northwest the works of international artists Gaetene Cummings, Michele LeBlanc, and Anthony Lee Weng Choong.

MOSA is coming soon to Bothell, WA!

After searching our local areas, we finally selected Bothell Country Village for the location of the MOSA Museum for artists with disabilities.  The NW Special Artists have been exhibiting their work at ArtWorks in Edmonds WA and through the Edmonds Arts Commission at the Edmonds library and at the Pacific Science Center and the Bellevue Arts Museum.  It has been a long time coming but we will making our home at the Bothell Country Village next to the Rosewood room.  It is quite an exciting time for these artists as their work will have permanent home.

The space is coming along but there is a lot to do yet as we need to paint, add flooring, a kitchenette and a gallery hanging system.  We are hopeful that we will have a grand opening in July of 2016.
