Samantha Bates’ repeated marks form and un-form nature before the viewer’s extended attention; building an unfolding experience into perception, memory and seeing. She grew up surrounded by the wilderness of Washington state. The land permeates her work in form, concept, representation, and practice.

Bates completed a Bachelor of Fine Art in painting and drawing at the University of Washington, and earned a 2D Master of Fine Arts at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She currently lives and works in Tacoma, Washington and is represented by Momentum Gallery in Asheville, NC. For more information, view her website

About the Forsberg Art Gallery

Lower Columbia College's art gallery located in the Rose Center for the Arts features twenty foot high walls with ample space and complete flexibility for the display of art. The second level of the gallery is more intimate in nature and displays special items and the college's permanent collection, much of which has been donated. Natural light from a slot skylight gently illuminates the room to enhance the overall experience in the gallery.
