OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bill’s on Greenwood: 8560 Greenwood Ave N
My name is Emma Glickman. I am a junior at Ingraham High School here in Seattle. This year I began the International Baccalaureate program at Ingraham and I am enrolled in the Visual Arts portion of that program. I am also participating in a Digital Photography Class at Youth In Focus in South Seattle.

Over the past year I have focused mostly on digital photography, while also experimenting in  film photography and other mediums. I love to photograph people and things in a candid state, or while moving. Because of this, most of my images have been taken while walking or in a moving vehicle. I like to capture people in their natural state – when they are not putting on a fake smile to please the camera. As a teenager in Seattle, I am constantly bombarded by different ideas surrounding feminism, bullying, gay rights, etc, and I am currently working on a series that will show my feelings towards different social issues.

I was featured at Avanti Art Gallery in last June’s photography exhibition, and I hope to continue getting my work out into the world! The Greenwood artwalk has created an amazing opportunity for me as an aspiring young artist, and I’m very glad to be able to participate for a second time! Artist present.

Artwork by Alexandra Lynn. I am interested in art that tells a story. I’ve currently been drawing landscape studies from memory and imagination to develop ideas for illustrating my creative writing.

I am looking forward to my third time showing work in the Greenwood Phinney ArtWalk. I was in the annual ArtWalk in 2008 and was a Juror’s Pick in 2009. Then the following year of 2010 was my BFA show at Cornish College of the Arts where I majored in Printmaking.

Washington native Matt Bazemore is a studied plein air painter whose artistic vision is to provide a window into the life, light and color of his idealized journey and experience. Working primarily in acrylics, Mr. Bazemore utilizes a bold palette and style to capture the unique spirit and beauty of rural and urban landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.

Born in Spokane, Washington in 1958, Mr. Bazemore relocated with his family to the Bellevue/Seattle area in 1966.  He began his formal art studies in high school when he was invited to attend the prestigious Centrum Foundation Art School in Port Townsend, Washington for the study of painting and glass blowing.  He continued his artistic training at Western Washington University in Bellingham where he matriculated in 1985 with a B.F.A.  It was during his tenure at Western Washington that Mr. Bazemore created an album cover and art directed a second for the internationally acclaimed E.M.I. recording artists Queensryche.  Mr. Bazemore then went on to study at The School of Visual Concepts between 1997 and 2000 where he studied illustration concepts with Edwin Fotheringham and Margaret Chodose-Irvine as well as computer graphics and print production.

Mr. Bazemore’s work has been presented at a variety of group and individual shows Seattle, Bellevue and Arlington.  He currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington.  When not at his artist’s easel, Mr. Bazemore is most likely pursuing his other lifelong passion of playing drums with various local rock musicians.

A Night at the Carnival: Inspired by the pulsing energy of midways, carnivals and state fairs, award winning artists Dayton Knipher (digital photography) and Mark Lubich (fused glass) have created an exciting and dynamic multi-sensory experience for their show at Phinney Center Gallery in Seattle, WA. Knipher’s work takes you into the dizzy world of fast paced slideshows, video, and swirling photographic works of color and motion, while Lubich’s fused glass is the perfect material to convey the emotion and fluidity of the carnival and the unfocused energy that emanates from the mass of people that press the midway and queue for a two minute ride into madness. Artists present.

John Hunter:
John has painted in oils since 1990, and has a reputation for intensely bright, rich colors and odd perspectives and organic shapes. Influences range from impressionism, expressionism and cubism to illustrative style and heavy surrealism. The Machine series is an opinion and surreal fantasy about the current state of technology. Using useless gadgetry and senseless circuitry to portray the world is the direction this series aims for.

Amy D’Acquisto:
Jewelry-maker, painter, seamstress, photographer, and fiber artist, Amy D’Acquisto develops her life-long love with the physical world in multiple mediums.  A Northwest Native, Amy’s current obsessions are with acrylic paint, miniature fiber arts, semi-precious stone beadwork, and encaustic bees wax. Having degrees in Landscape Design and Ornamental Horticulture as well as art, she loves to pull from nature, using highly organic and textural items mixed with classic craftwork and post-industrial imagery.

To celebrate the hundredth year of Dubliners, James Joyce’s classic short story collection, de Selby Press commissioned artist Stephen Crowe to illustrate the stories for a new centennial edition. Crowe’s series takes an uniquely modern, graphic, and conceptual approach, inspired by both the avant-garde and commercial design and illustration of the Edwardian period. Stephen Crowe began illustrating Finnegans Wake while working as an English teacher in Paris, and then he couldn’t stop. His work has appeared in various print and online publications, including the International Herald Tribune, The Atlantic Online, and Bomb, and has been exhibited at the Shakespeare and Company bookstore and the Nouvel Organon Gallery in Paris, and at Urban Light Gallery in Seattle. Artist present.

Woodland Park Presbyterian Church: 225 N 70th St
Featuring artist Susan Ringstad Emery
I enjoy working in oil, acrylic, graphite, and mixed media. Approachability, identification with subject matter, creativity, and expressiveness are important to me in my art. Issues that grab my attention include native artists in contemporary times, child development, special needs, language and culture. I am fascinated by the effects of color, light, and shadow in my everyday environment.

I hope to express things that matter through my art, bring attention to issues, record history, or create legacy. For me, making art is a fulfillment of purpose and an outlet to express ideas that stay with me-those ideas which persist until brought forward.

My influences include my cultures, family, people and places of the world and inspiration by other artists such as my art teacher Sandra Lepper, Paul Owen Lewis, Eric Carle, Alexandra Day, Diego Rivera, my maternal grandfather Teddy Sockpick- whose art was expressed through his skilled scrimshaw etchings, and my paternal grandmother Florence Selberg-Ringstad, who placed a priority on the arts and enjoyed working in watercolor. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my family.

Artist’s Statement (sort of)
I ’m always impressed with the insightfully dynamic statements provided by artists, poets and the like regarding their work; and I’ve always wanted to write one, a really dynamic and poignant window into my creative soul, as it were, but doggone it, it all comes out as derivative doggerel.

The fact is, I like taking photographs. I like being a photographer. Finding that I caught the moment – you know, the collision at second base; the gun-drawn felony arrest; the bird in flight – is hugely fulfilling. The camera clicks and defines that moment completely. All the preparation and serendipity required to successfully capture the target – the one that you say to yourself “This is it,  I’ve got it” – have disappeared! It’s the home run of photography.

These captured moments are for me visual haiku, captured for all-time…or at least for as long as the photos last. Whether birds, people, sports or landscape, a successful photo manages to capture this haiku moment in such a way that other folks will perceive a similar experience as the photographer experienced at the time of the shot. Hopefully the photos in this collection catch the moment well enough that you, the gracious viewer, walk for a moment on the same visual pathway. And if not, well, that’s the nature of art.

Plus live music by Nate Rogers. Artists present.

Jasinski_Walls Come Tumbling Down 11x14

Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101
Presenting Inner Beauty this summer. Seattle area artists Chris Sheridan and Aaron Jasinski explore the idea of inner beauty from dramatically different angles while carrying the same message: true beauty consists of more than just the typical trappings of our society.

Chris Sheridan is known for his rich oil paintings that place modern figures in sumptuous environments, making use of the language of flowers, mythic symbols, and folklore to draw us into narratives that seem as familiar and dangerous as Black Forest fairytales.

For Inner Beauty, however, Sheridan has stripped away the symbolic details and the clothing, preferring to focus on the beauty of the figure in its purest form. Fascinated with William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting The Birth of Venus, Sheridan is working on a series of larger-than-life nudes, all of whom will adopt the pose from Bouguereau’s image.

Jasinski turns his eye to the interior, looking beneath the skin and under the book’s cover to discover where beauty truly lies. “We build up images of ourselves or our beliefs about what is beautiful: to fit in, to stand out, to reject or embrace. Sometimes we build up so many layers that we may lose sense of whether our own true centers constitute a marshmallowy filling or a hard jawbreaker.”

Works in this show will explore the idea of beauty as a multilayered concept, peering through the images we show the world based on time and circumstance, and prying through the guises we adopt. Artists present.

THE OWL PEOPLE SERIES by Mark McKnight:
I count it good fortune having had my growing-up years anchored in the great Pacific Northwest and can thank my parents (being avid hiker/skiers) for introducing my brother and I to the treasures of the Olympic/Cascade mountain ranges with their magnificent trails, rivers and lakes. Through this early exposure to the wild outdoors, nature seeped into my marrow.

Today, our Suquamish home, nestled on a forested acre cradles at it’s end a large, dark pond. Here, Barred Owls (also known as Rain Owls) frequent during sunrise or twilight hours. Under watchful eyes I have been deeply privileged to quietly draw near and capture their presence while on the hunt or at rest.

This ongoing photo series titled, Owl People, derives from Native American lore where the owl’s presence holds a potent, sacred place whether to be feared or embraced. I look forward to adding to this series as the Owl People sojourn near my forest home and graciously allow me into their midst.

southwest by SOUTHWEST

A collection of photography from the American Southwest and New Zealand. Taken during two ‘life trips’ the images serve as a visual journal, documenting the artist’s unique perspective of these dynamic and distinctly different landscapes. The first, barren and dry, dominated by a warm pallet of orange and red. The latter, an otherworldly and largely unspoiled garden of green and blue. Whether captured a thousand or seven thousand miles away, these photographs will leave the viewer with an appreciation for lands ‘Southwest.’

Morgan Keuler is a freelance photographer based in Seattle, best known for his work in music and event photography. He has recently branched out and engaged his talents to help create a lauded cookbook with the Seattle institution, Pike Place Fish, and will be producing more fine art and landscape prints from his travels near and far.

Photography by Michael Cole.

Artist Bio: I’ve been drawn to the open road for as long as I can remember.  Not the Interstates but the two lane variety. I like the slower pace and the evidence of times past, when the journey was the destination, or at least part of it. These pictures are from my  motorcycle trip from the Texas Gulf heading up Route 66, Coast Highways 1 & 101. A pretty good route if you ask me. Things constantly change and many of these links to the past are quickly disappearing….

So I am drawn to do another motorcycle trip on the length of Route 66 within the next year or so. As the lyrics say “If you ever plan to motor west, travel my way, take the highway that is best. Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.”  Artist present.

Featured artwork by Urania Perez, Enrique Wetzel & Alice Nguyen.

Urania was born in Venezuela and lived in the US for the last 30 years.  In 2010 she started to take Painting classes, she has studied in several local Art studios and the Gage Academy. Acrylic is her preferred medium.  She teaches, part time, Spanish to adults and teenagers. Urania’s inspiration is nature, birds, flowers and figures. However what inspire her the most are colors, its intensity and variety in values. Also she likes to do people watching sometimes and gets inspired that way.  She believes that Seattle is a beautiful place, and cycling around the city is motivational, capturing those beautiful “little moments” of life that makes us more human, alive and relaxed, present in the moment. She expresses herself with those little moments on the canvas. Enjoy the paintings and relax! You can contact her by email at uraniaperez@mac.com

A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Enrique Wetzel has lived in Seattle, Washington since 1988. His painting medium is acrylic on canvas or wood, and the styles range from art deco to realism to abstract to portrait.

Betker’s knifepainted oils celebrate human habitat.   Her late father was a civil engineer and family vacations were spent touringPacific Northwest hydroelectric dams, jetties, harbors, airfields, locks and fish ladders, and while she may have missed it then, these awkward meetings of nature and human invention now sing loud music.

She is awed by the huge human spirit to persevere, manage, and go on living here on this planet.  Recently she began exploring the monumental social and economic effort generated by natural challenges to our infrastructure, inspired by photographs of postflood rehab work taken by her dad decades ago.  In addition to this collection, Betker works in several other styles and media, both outdoors on location and in the studio. Artist present.

Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101
Presenting Inner Beauty this summer. Seattle area artists Chris Sheridan and Aaron Jasinski explore the idea of inner beauty from dramatically different angles while carrying the same message: true beauty consists of more than just the typical trappings of our society.

Chris Sheridan is known for his rich oil paintings that place modern figures in sumptuous environments, making use of the language of flowers, mythic symbols, and folklore to draw us into narratives that seem as familiar and dangerous as Black Forest fairytales.

For Inner Beauty, however, Sheridan has stripped away the symbolic details and the clothing, preferring to focus on the beauty of the figure in its purest form. Fascinated with William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting The Birth of Venus, Sheridan is working on a series of larger-than-life nudes, all of whom will adopt the pose from Bouguereau’s image.

Jasinski turns his eye to the interior, looking beneath the skin and under the book’s cover to discover where beauty truly lies. “We build up images of ourselves or our beliefs about what is beautiful: to fit in, to stand out, to reject or embrace. Sometimes we build up so many layers that we may lose sense of whether our own true centers constitute a marshmallowy filling or a hard jawbreaker.”

Works in this show will explore the idea of beauty as a multilayered concept, peering through the images we show the world based on time and circumstance, and prying through the guises we adopt. Artists present.

THE OWL PEOPLE SERIES:
I count it good fortune having had my growing-up years anchored in the great Pacific Northwest and can thank my parents (being avid hiker/skiers) for introducing my brother and I to the treasures of the Olympic/Cascade mountain ranges with their magnificent trails, rivers and lakes. Through this early exposure to the wild outdoors, nature seeped into my marrow.

Today, our Suquamish home, nestled on a forested acre cradles at it’s end a large, dark pond. Here, Barred Owls (also known as Rain Owls) frequent during sunrise or twilight hours. Under watchful eyes I have been deeply privileged to quietly draw near and capture their presence while on the hunt or at rest.

This ongoing photo series titled, Owl People, derives from Native American lore where the owl’s presence holds a potent, sacred place whether to be feared or embraced. I look forward to adding to this series as the Owl People sojourn near my forest home and graciously allow me into their midst.

Art site providing light h’orderves and beverage. High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography on Canvas by Taylor McAtee. McAtee has amassed quite the collection of urban and natural scenery from local landmarks to exotic vistas, all the while providing a viewpoint that is distinctly different and transports the viewer to another world.

southwest by SOUTHWEST
A collection of photography from the American Southwest and New Zealand. Taken during two ‘life trips’ the images serve as a visual journal, documenting the artist’s unique perspective of these dynamic and distinctly different landscapes. The first, barren and dry, dominated by a warm pallet of orange and red. The latter, an otherworldly and largely unspoiled garden of green and blue. Whether captured a thousand or seven thousand miles away, these photographs will leave the viewer with an appreciation for lands ‘Southwest.’

Morgan Keuler is a freelance photographer based in Seattle, best known for his work in music and event photography. He has recently branched out and engaged his talents to help create a lauded cookbook with the Seattle institution, Pike Place Fish, and will be producing more fine art and landscape prints from his travels near and far. Artists present.

“Wake in Progress” illustrations by Stephen Crowe.WAKE IN PROGRESS is an ongoing visual adaptation of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, perhaps the most difficult work of modernist fiction, composed in the fluid, shifting language of dreams. Wake in Progress translates the unique text into a fusion of styles and imagery from the history of visual art, from cave paintings to comic books, in a joyfully anarchic collision of high and popular culture. The resulting collection straddles the line between a series of independent images and a sequential narrative, in which recurring motifs and developing styles translate the most complex novel of the 20th Century into an evolving story in pictures.

ARTIST TALK with Solace & John Osgood starting at 7pm.
The Northwest, more specifically Seattle, is a very interesting place to be an artist. There’s a magic and mysticism in the air and inspiration around every corner. From our folklore to our pop culture, there is a style and grace that is unmistakably us, the indigenous. This area breeds an ultimate respect for its surroundings. It’s a place where nature isn’t afraid to reclaim its territory amongst the urban sprawl. It’s with this spirit that we present a new collection of work that unearths some of what makes this area so electric. From the tiniest of creature to the beasts we’re so well known for, prepare to be immersed in our corner of the world visualized through the collaboration of two indigenous artists; Solace and John Osgood. Artists present.

Artist Statement: Don Cassady

Don graduated from Washington State University in 1952 with a five year Bachelor of Architecture degree. He had a long and rewarding career owning his own firm Cassady and Associates in Vancouver Washington. He is enrolled in a ” mature learning watercolor class” at Clark college in Vancouver which he finds both stimulating and relaxing. His art is a culmination of his skill and attention to detail honed over the years as an architect, his time spent outdoors golfing, bicycling, walking, gardening and beach combing, his 60 year marriage to his wife Pat raising 6 children and his 87 years on earth developing a keen sense of humor and a creative spirit that he very effectively communicates with his paintings.

Film photography to Giclée prints on canvas by Joel Clarin. Joel chooses to work with traditional film cameras, then creates traditional silver gelatin prints or Giclée prints on canvas. Joel tends to prefer black and white images, because it further abstracts the image from the actual space and time it was recorded. His subjects are ‘landscapes’ that attempt to find the grandeur within the ‘ordinary’ and often overlooked. Artists present.

“The Big One” 19th Annual Artwalk: May 9th & 10th

Our neighborhood celebrates 19 years of hosting an artwalk, which is one of the reasons why we call it “The Big One“. Historically our neighborhood artwalk was an annual 2-day event that occurred each year on the 2nd Friday & Saturday of May (Friday from 6-9pm & Saturday from 12-5pm). When our neighborhood added a monthly artwalk in December of 2008, we not only continued to make the May artwalk a special designated 2-day event, but we also dove-tailed 2nd Fridays as our monthly artwalk date.

The Big One” is big because of the history behind it, the fact that it spans 2-days, and it simply has the largest number of participants with 80 venues spanning from 87th & Greenwood Ave to 59th & Phinney Ave N.  We look forward to seeing you!
