Squid Inc-crop

Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101
(located above Chase Bank)
Squid Inc.—or Giant Squid Supply—was one of the great companies to arise from the American Industrial Revolution, establishing itself in Ballard, WA in 1839. A squid-producing, transporting, refining and marketing company, their products fed kings, presidents, and the common man. Their miracle cure—Squid Ink—battled ailments from halitosis to boot rot, and could be found across the nation and the world (especially popular in print shops behind the Iron Curtain).

A powerful monopoly on the cephalopod trade, the company was broken up by the Supreme Court in 1987, and its history is shrouded in mystery. But the curtain has begun to lift! The collection of artifacts on display at Bherd Gallery was unearthed as recently as 1993, and has been painstakingly restored to the current condition. Four local artisans—Duffy, Justin Kane Elder & Stefan Hoffman of Electric Coffin, and Kellie Talbot—worked with the region’s top scientists, sociologists and philosophers for two decades to piece together facts amidst the mythology behind Giant Squid Supply. Transforming the Bherd Gallery into a cabinet of curiosities from the rise and fall of Squid Inc., these artist-scholars present vintage advertising and artifacts, shedding light on the history of this company that once held the world in their tentacles. Learn the forgotten history of this once-proud company, and find out why Great Grandpop always smelled of brine when he brushed his teeth. Artists present.

Ludlow: 7315 Greenwood Ave N
Morgan Jane Miller, Photographer. I am in love with photography. My photographs tend to be uncluttered and sometimes starkly simple.  and have often been described as painterly. I print on canvas and a very fine textured French cold pressed watercolor paper.  Coming in close with my camera isolates and tells what I think is a truer story. Light, form and shadow amaze me.

I trained at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and was, in my early years, a medical photographer in a teaching hospital.  The technical training I received there was unlike any I ever received in art school.  Because photographing sick people is both difficult and sad, I pursued beauty to help make up for the things that I photographed day to day.  My fine art work has been sold through designers and is in private collections across the United States, Canada and France.  I also have been published in National Geographic Travel Magazine.

I plan to continue learning to the very last of my days. Photography is such an exciting field and the new tools that have been developed for Digital Photographers has opened whole new worlds for creating.

Recently, I have been photographing things that are considered vintage.  I get a kick out of using a state of the art digital camera to capture the beauty and patina of chipped, rusty and just plain beautiful old buildings and  other things I come across in my travels. These images are all from France.

Works Progress is the new Greenwood coworking space or shared space for freelancers, small businesses, telecommuters, and non-profits. We are excited to join the Art Up PhinneyWood events and will be hosting monthly rotating artwork by local artists.

This Friday, we are pleased to host artist Rowena Mae D. Javelona and will have some light refreshments available, including Filipino beer and lumpia.

Ms. Javelona is an architect by profession, but has a passion for fine art drawing, painting and photography. She has lived and traveled in many places and now divides her time between the two countries she calls home, the Philippines, the country of her birth, and the United States, specifically the Pacific Northwest. Javelona has exhibited her work in local libraries and neighborhood galleries.

Each of the drawings in this exhibit is done in Prismacolor color pencils on Canson sketch paper. All are created simply from my spontaneous, technicolor, wild imagination. If you have any questions or would like to purchase a drawing, please email the artist at maedcjavelona@yahoo.com.
