The Mercer Island Visual Arts League (MIVAL) will feature “Inside Looking Outside, Outside Looking Inside — A Bond Family Mixed Media Show” in March.

The show runs March 1 to April 1 at the MIVAL Gallery, at 2836 78th Ave. SE. There will be a show opening and artist reception from 5-8 p.m. on March 1, with a second reception on March 8.

Marianne, Eddie and Anna Bond have been MIVAL members for many years. Anna as a fourth grader, and Eddie as a sixth grader, showed award winning work in the union art shows, and continued through high school.

The mixed media show features retrospective and current work from all three artists, created individually and collaboratively.

Eddie Bond graduated from the University of Oregon with a bachelor’s degree in jazz studies in 2013. He is a composer, and teaches guitar and piano to 35-40 students with a private music school in Portland, Oregon. He also plays keyboard with a touring band called Psychomagic.

Anna Bond graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a bachelor’s degree in geophysical engineering in 2015. She completed a master’s in teaching and currently teaches physics at Inglemoor High School.

Their mom, Marianne Bond, has worked in art, drawing and painting, wood, furniture and craft design since her high school days with studies at Fullerton College, San Diego State and Cornish College of the Arts. Design showrooms in Miami, Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix and Seattle have represented her folding wood screens, and her work has been published in books and magazines. She currently works with kindergartners and first graders as a paraeducator at Island Park Elementary School.
