In March of 2020 Tony will open a show at the Foster/White Gallery in Seattle entitled: Sketches in Stone. The work will include some sixteen individual panels of slate with relief carvings of subjects from nature. Not unlike a sketch from the field Angell has sought to convey the spontaneity and liveliness of what he has observed in Nature in carved slate giving it an almost three dimensional form. Below are pictured two of the stone works, measuring 8"X11" The captions described the circumstances wherein the moment with the subject was experienced.



Off Lopez Island in the Salish Sea diving birds reside and at times I've witnessed their underwater activity when I myself was diving for abalone and rock fish. A murre, using it's wings for propulsion is pursuing a small fish and creating a graceful arch of light in the turbulence of the chase. (Slate carving 8" X 11" 2019)



Along our watershed sharp shinned hawks will sometimes be observed taking a perch within a canopy of tree cover. On one occasion I noticed that an Anna's hummingbird was also keeping a close watch on this neighborhood hunter. I'm certain the hawk was well aware of being scrutinized but feigned indifference.

"Alone in the woods at night I've sometimes watched the small saw-whet owls thread through the dark corridor of branches above our creek. Soundlessly catching moths on the wing, they bring the otherwise mute forest alive with their spirited chases and metallic calls."
