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.

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.

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. Artists present.

“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.
