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.

Plus live music. Artists present.

Abrams Chiropractic Clinic: 7815 Greenwood Ave N
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.

AaronJasinski_02-web

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.

Urban Light Studios: 8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite 1
“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.

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!

Bill’s On Greenwood: 8560 Greenwood Ave N
Featuring the works of Jeffrey Erken. Artist Statement: Although I have taken various classes in Art at the University of Washington and the Art Institute of Chicago, among other educational institutions, I am not a formally trained artist. I work in a studio from photographs because they are ubiquitous in our modern culture. Although all of my work is photography based, I avert absolute coherence with various abstract interventions. In this postmodern world shifts in meaning and layered imagery are commonplace in movies and television. Art is no exception.!! I have always resisted so-called contemporary art. Especially art that aims to shock or get attention for its own sake. Rather my aims are self transformation and discovery. In this sense I am open to influence in all its forms. It is my belief that photography was not the end of painting, and neither was Abstract Expressionism. Painting has continued among a group of artists who resist the trendy, and yet are not anachronistic. Although the audience for painting may ebb and flow, the medium will always be relevant. Artist present.

Artist Statement: Night Study
This series of 7 photographs were taken between 2002 and 2008 using a Holga and a Pentax K1000. Equipped with a tripod and setting the exposure from fifteen seconds to several minutes, I have experimented with trying to find the best environment to capture an image. Full moon, new moon, clear sky or mist, each brings something different.  I still love the surprise of working with film.

Since 2000, I have taken my cameras to Paris, Mont Saint-Michel, Giverny, Aix-en-Provence, Nice, Eze, Istanbul, Santorini, Lisbon, the Algarve, Seville, Barcelona, Milan, Venice, Tuscany, Rome, Hong Kong, Macau, Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, San Miguel de Allende, Salt Spring Island-B.C., across the U.S. and here at home in the Pacific Northwest.

I use the Holga for its inherent dream-like quality.  When I create an image I look for angles/curves, asymmetry/symmetry, light/shadow and texture.  I look to capture an otherwise missed moment.  I look for stillness. Artist present.

Featuring artist, Marlin Greene: “There is an aspect of photographing birds that is mystical, that goes beyond getting the exposure and composition dialed in and just being in the right place. It is a part of a Greater Mystery. At first, the birds would not make themselves available to me. I had to put in many hours of having my patience tested before the birds accepted me as being serious about photographing them. It was almost like an initiation. After many frustrating attempts — taking a lot of photos of where a bird was — I started to notice that the birds were “allowing” me to see them. They started giving me time to focus and get closer for a decent image. The subject had made itself available. Sometimes a bird would appear right in front of me unexpectedly and pose nervously like, “well hurry up, I have things to do.”

A-1 Piano: 7020 Greenwood Ave N
My specialty is really oil, though I also work with gouache and water color, if only just the basic techniques. I draw influence from Impressionism and its influences to motion and color. My father used to say I was playing with colors. Maybe he was right. I feel I have grown to enjoy life through a colorful prism, and sense it through my own aesthetic view. Luck has graced me with the opportunity to visit many places and meet many people – the good, the bad, the rich and the poor – staying with them, sharing life with them. Perhaps I will only meet some of them once in my lifetime. Of the paintings that come out of these encounters, a few I finish on the spot; a few must wait until I return to the studio with just enough remaining visual memory to complete. Art is extremely unlimited, but human ability is limited. Definitely there are many mistakes in my works, and inevitably so.

Please enjoy.

Kellie Talbot and Troy Gua pair up in an unlikely road trip to explore themes of migration, manifest destiny, and the unique American yearning to get out on the highway. Presenting new works in mixed media, and oils on canvas and panel, Here is a two-person take on sense of place, movement and choice.

The two artists may have different approaches, but they often end up in the same spot. Talbot creates hyper-real paintings of neon signs, billboards, factories and oddities of the American road-scape. Her large-scale oils blow up certain sections of typography or texture to macro focus, letting us read the flaking paint, burnt-out bulbs and rust like a rebus. Her work often honors the neglected, decaying and passed-by in our modern landscape: old signs, crumbling architecture, forgotten cemeteries.

Gua’s work in mixed media plays with bright colors, shiny finishes, and sheen surfaces, all the better to conjure—and skewer—images of Hollywood perfection. The artist is best known for his “Pop Hybrid” series, visual portmanteaus that overlay the features of two celebrities, making a composite that is both eerily familiar and jarringly strange. His high-gloss works both support and parody our need for recognition, society’s interest in fame and notoriety, and our craze for nostalgia.

Talbot’s focus on American history, craftsmanship and decay contrasts perfectly with Gua’s humorous look at the pop status quo of American culture. From what we leave behind to where we think we want to go, these artists are sending postcards from their exploration of the frontier. Wish you were here! Artists present.

In addition to using  recycled materials my unique approach comes from using my mornings leftover brewed coffee instead of water. Meaning? I mix coffee with my  paints and then give my work a final transparent coffee wash – giving them unusual depth and color. Hope you like what you see!  Artist present.

We’re so fortunate to live in a city surrounded by a community of artists. What better way to think of celebrating this month’s Art Walk than to consider The Great Outdoors. How have you experienced nature? How does art, love and nature intersect for you?

Streetlights and Torches, Priuses and Centaurs:
Exploring the Role of Myth and History in Our Everyday Lives

In this two-person exhibition, Crystal Barbre and Kate Protage use paintings and drawings to explore our relationships to mythic themes, and the connections between our modern world and our cultural lineage.

The modern world, in some ways, seems to have become a myth illiterate culture. We create allegory in the movies and television shows that we watch, but our cultural myths are a bit anemic: in a world where we have the struggle of the Kardashians instead of the battle of the Centaurs against their cousins the Lapiths, our stories are less than ideal tools to help us explore the deeper struggles within ourselves. We’re missing the kind of exposure to allegorical art that each individual deserves to own. The struggles of the ancients are the same struggles we go through today. We are not more civilized then the ancient Greeks or Romans—their stories are our stories, and we still need them.

In this exhibition, Barbre and Protage use contemporary models to tell ancient stories, and surround them with elements that are both old and new, just like the art that they’ve chosen to reference. They’ve taken that art that appears on the side of the road and offered their own take on it, right down to depictions of the local traffic that flows around it. Their paintings and drawings pay homage to the work of ancient times, and reframe that work in today’s world. Artists present.

Streetlights and Torches, Priuses and Centaurs: Exploring the Role of Myth and History in Our Everyday Lives. In this two-person exhibition, Crystal Barbre and Kate Protage use paintings and drawings to explore our relationships to mythic themes, and the connections between our modern world and our cultural lineage.

It started with a trip to Italy.

After Kate visited Rome and Florence last summer, she and Crystal began discussing how art integrates with life in different places throughout the world. The US is a relatively young country, but there are many places on the map where human history is several hundred, even thousands of years old. In those places, cultural artifacts are part of everyday life: important sculptures and paintings can be found in random public plazas, off-the-beaten-path places of worship…sometimes on the side of the road, part of someone’s daily commute. Myth and culture exist side-by-side with the mundane.

The ancients knew that we as humans are in a constant battle against our barbarian and civilized natures, against the animal and the human in us. They painted allegories on the walls of churches, and left sculptures in the streets and on buildings for people to consider every day…not just for a few hours in a museum. Myth and allegory give us a way to visualize our struggles as a community, a culture and as individuals.

The modern world, in some ways, seems to have become a myth illiterate culture. We create allegory in the movies and television shows that we watch, but our cultural myths are a bit anemic: in a world where we have the struggle of the Kardashians instead of the battle of the Centaurs against their cousins the Lapiths, our stories are less than ideal tools to help us explore the deeper struggles within ourselves. We’re missing the kind of exposure to allegorical art that each individual deserves to own. The struggles of the ancients are the same struggles we go through today. We are not more civilized then the ancient Greeks or Romans—their stories are our stories, and we still need them.

Tasty Closing January 31: A true loss for artists & art lovers in our neighborhood

Tasty

Tasty will be closing it’s retail storefront at 7513 Greenwood Ave N. in Seattle Washington on January 31, 2014. The gallery’s owner, Sheri Hauser, says “I feel truly lucky to have had the opportunity to serve the public, my neighborhood, and the local art community for the past four years.” Since opening Tasty, Sheri worked hard to promote her Phinney Ridge & Greenwood neighborhood. She was a founding member of the business advisory board at the Phinney Neighborhood Association and is one of the directors of the Greenwood Arts Council. With the help of a handful of other passionate neighborhood Art Walk organizers, she formed a non-profit called the Art Walk Consortium and launched http://www.SeattleArtWalks.org in the service of promoting all 14 independently produced monthly art walks Seattle-wide.

In the four years of running Tasty, Sheri sold original artworks and handmade products, from over 250 different regional artists, building and nurturing those relationships, including members of her own family! Her husband Sean paints and custom makes Funko toys, her mother and sister–in-law are both ceramic artists and even her daughter has sold paintings at Tasty! By-The-Way: Sean says they are having a HUGE toy clearance sale starting December 1st and running all month and into January with new (in-box) bobble-heads selling for as cheap as $3.00!

Please join Sheri & Sean on Friday the 13th of December for their FINAL HOLIDAY ART SHOWCASE during PhinneyWood’s Art Up & Chow Down event from 6-10pm. Champagne and hot chocolate will be flowing. December hours will include being back open on Sundays from 12-5, plus the usual Tuesday-Saturday 11-6 (open til 7pm closer to Christmas).

PS: To inquire about renting their 1,000 sq ft storefront after February, contact the new building owners, Steve and Diana of Sip & Ship (who moved in next door) at 7511 Greenwood (206) 890-9810.

Open only until 8pm. Featuring mixed media, watercolor, graphite and sumi ink work by Anita H. Lehmann, Architect. About the artist: My natural tool is the pencil or the crayon; the single line and the limited palette require the artist to tell the story of that place with a crisp economy. Color, temperature, movement, and character are evoked in a few swift strokes. For me as an architect and illustrator, the drawn line evokes the honest nature of a place, expressing—literally—weight, value, and tone. These media—the pencil and the crayon—capture the loose realism of the edge places which then dissolves toward abstraction.

I received training in architectural drawing at the University of Washington, and freehand drawing in Rome. I am a current member of the American Society of Architectural Illustrators. I give drawing lessons at my studio, on the edge of downtown Seattle. Artist present.

Seattle artists Joe Vollan and Megon Shore explore the afterworld of the animal kingdom in their collaborative exhibition, Spectral Menagerie. Ghost animals, deaths-head moths and nodding calla lilies appear in their paintings, charting a course through the afterlife that is by turns eerie, haunting and beautiful.

Vollan, whose works on canvas, panel and fimo clay describe tales of heartache and adventure, take place in the city of Rusted Gallows, populated primarily by friendly skeletons. The characters in his works demonstrate that there can be contentment and hope in an otherwise dilapidated world. Shore is a tattoo artist at the Greenwood-based Fist Full of Metal Tattoo Studio, and previously apprenticed at Under the Needle Tattoo Studio in Seattle. She also studied printmaking at Emily Carr University in Vancouver, BC. Both artists painstakingly create pieces that discover the essence of life after death and find the loveliness that lies within the unknown. Artists present.

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.
