A-1 Piano: 7020 Greenwood Ave N
Featuring works from Carleigh Romeis, Ed Leckert, Erika Arndt Klimecky, Heidi Walker, Jessa Lewis, Orian Ahrensfeld, Rakesh Malik and Sarah Henderson. As we think of Valentine’s Day, inevitably, we think of love and beauty. As musicians, artists, photographers, etc; love, art and nature feel intertwined. 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?

Please celebrate Valentine’s Day with A-1 Piano Sales & Rentals as we enjoy The Great Outdoors. In addition to photography, paintings and jewelry by our friends,  we’ll also be featuring local musical talent! 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.

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.

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.
