“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.

Featuring work by Pauline Smith.
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.”

Mar_A1-Piano

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.

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.

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.

Stretch and Staple: 8005 Greenwood Ave N
Art site providing light h’orderves and beverage. Mike Reid is from Seattle and loves living here, having been most everywhere else. He is primarily a Canon floral and landscape photographer. Thin depth of field his poetry. He mostly shoots Canon 5D2 and Zeiss prime lenses. He sees potential photos everywhere he goes. Nothing makes him feel the way he feels with a camera in hand, eye pressed to the eyepiece. I hope you can get a sense of this feeling in what you see here.

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.

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.

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.
