- About -

Counsel Langley grew up among shipwrights and foundry workers—people with strong traditional skills and respect for materials. Their influence played a large part in her choice to study metalsmithing at Massachusetts College of Art (earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Art, 1999). The rigor of metalwork honed Langley’s discipline, steady hand, attention for detail, and love for surface treatment (rough, smooth, matte, shiny, sparkly, natural, mechanical etc). Her work remains rooted in a metalsmith’s approach to making art. Langley’s mixed media pieces have been widely exhibited; recent venues include the Museum of Northwest Art, Roq La Rue, PUB Gallery at Peninsula College, OGHE Ltd., and Bridge Productions. Her work is held by the Seattle City Light Portable Works Collection and ArtsWA Public Collection. Langley’s work has been featured in Seattle Magazine, City Arts Magazine, Meat For Tea: The Valley Review, Trickhouse, Beautiful/Decay blog. Her love for cross-discipline collaborations sparked opportunities to work with literary publications Filter Literary Journal, Poetry Northwest Magazine, the creation of album art, scenic design, and illustration.
