JW Harrington had a full career in the Urban Studies department at UW-Tacoma, but his first identity now is painter. Kathy Roseth spent her working years managing low-income housing for public and nonprofit organizations. Post-retirement, she enrolled in a full-time atelier program and studied drawing and painting for five years. In this Zoom session for UWRA members, both artists will show their work and discuss their artistic processes in conversation with Tom Griffin, retired manager-editor of UW’s Columns magazine.
