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.

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.

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.

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.

Nov_Ampersand

Ampersand Pantry & Cafe: 424 N 85th St, Suite 1
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.

Laura Goularte, originally from the California central coast, is a long-time Seattle dweller and current Broadview resident who rarely leaves home without a camera. Capturing the image of a fleeting ‘wow’ moment never ceases to humble and delight her (and it can also serve as a visual complement to a mind’s eye memory). The photos in this show were taken with an android phone or long zoom camera over the last two years, at a variety of locations: mostly Northwest, some in California and a few in Argentina.

Musicians playing live music include:  Lesleigh Reinfried (piano), Enrique Wetzel & Rebecca Garcia (guitar), Rowan Dowell (upright bass) & Randy Dowell (piano).  Artists present.

Featuring mixed media and oil paintings by Corinna Sinclair.

About the artist: My name is Corinna and I’m a Seattle and Kona Based Visual Artist and Graphic Designer. I work in a variety of media and my favorite is oil, pencil, pastels, and watercolors. I also like to experiment with modeling and photography projects. I appreciate art in all forms, style, and media. My paintings are somewhat rustic, and each original work has it’s own unique character. I lean a lot on simplicity and bold color. I see hands on art just as important as art created digitally. Exotic ports of call are captured in oil. Most of my work reflects my imagination, emotion, and my personality. Many of my earlier work shows my life growing up in Seattle and Kona, Hawaii – from tropical landscapes to Pacific Northwest moonscapes. Today I paint all kinds of subjects and I continue to grow and experiment with different mediums. Eventually I’d like to focus more on mixed media projects. I look forward to a lifetime of painting.
