Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101
Featuring two solo shows from Seattle artists Ego & Jenny Dayton. Ego’s work has a flair for slightly dark, whimsical creepiness, influenced by the macabre sides of tattoo culture, street art, and underground fine art. Dayton creates both paintings and 3-d miniature scenes for this exhibition. Her work is message intense, compassion and respect for animals is the gospel she preaches but she does it quietly. The message is always there, but you have to unfold the layers of the work to see it clearly. Jenny uses images, Cyrillic text and other graphic elements to guide the invested viewer toward an important truth. Artists present.

Bill’s on Greenwood: 8560 Greenwood Ave N
Washington native Matt Bazemore is a studied plein air painter whose artistic vision is to provide a window into the life, light and color of his idealized journey and experience. Working primarily in acrylics, Mr. Bazemore utilizes a bold palette and style to capture the unique spirit and beauty of rural and urban landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.

Born in Spokane, Washington in 1958, Mr. Bazemore relocated with his family to the Bellevue/Seattle area in 1966.  He began his formal art studies in high school when he was invited to attend the prestigious Centrum Foundation Art School in Port Townsend, Washington for the study of painting and glass blowing.  He continued his artistic training at Western Washington University in Bellingham where he matriculated in 1985 with a B.F.A.  It was during his tenure at Western Washington that Mr. Bazemore created an album cover and art directed a second for the internationally acclaimed E.M.I. recording artists Queensryche.  Mr. Bazemore then went on to study at The School of Visual Concepts between 1997 and 2000 where he studied illustration concepts with Edwin Fotheringham and Margaret Chodose-Irvine as well as computer graphics and print production.

Mr. Bazemore’s work has been presented at a variety of group and individual shows Seattle, Bellevue and Arlington.  He currently lives and works in Seattle, Washington.  When not at his artist’s easel, Mr. Bazemore is most likely pursuing his other lifelong passion of playing drums with various local rock musicians.

PNA Gallery: 6532 Greenwood Ave N
A Night at the Carnival: Inspired by the pulsing energy of midways, carnivals and state fairs, award winning artists Dayton Knipher (digital photography) and Mark Lubich (fused glass) have created an exciting and dynamic multi-sensory experience for their show at Phinney Center Gallery in Seattle, WA. Knipher’s work takes you into the dizzy world of fast paced slideshows, video, and swirling photographic works of color and motion, while Lubich’s fused glass is the perfect material to convey the emotion and fluidity of the carnival and the unfocused energy that emanates from the mass of people that press the midway and queue for a two minute ride into madness. Artists present.

Sept_School of Rock

School of Rock: 106 N 85th Street (Behind Bartells)
John Hunter:
John has painted in oils since 1990, and has a reputation for intensely bright, rich colors and odd perspectives and organic shapes. Influences range from impressionism, expressionism and cubism to illustrative style and heavy surrealism. The Machine series is an opinion and surreal fantasy about the current state of technology. Using useless gadgetry and senseless circuitry to portray the world is the direction this series aims for.

Amy D’Acquisto:
Jewelry-maker, painter, seamstress, photographer, and fiber artist, Amy D’Acquisto develops her life-long love with the physical world in multiple mediums.  A Northwest Native, Amy’s current obsessions are with acrylic paint, miniature fiber arts, semi-precious stone beadwork, and encaustic bees wax. Having degrees in Landscape Design and Ornamental Horticulture as well as art, she loves to pull from nature, using highly organic and textural items mixed with classic craftwork and post-industrial imagery.

Artists present.

To celebrate the hundredth year of Dubliners, James Joyce’s classic short story collection, de Selby Press commissioned artist Stephen Crowe to illustrate the stories for a new centennial edition. Crowe’s series takes an uniquely modern, graphic, and conceptual approach, inspired by both the avant-garde and commercial design and illustration of the Edwardian period. Stephen Crowe began illustrating Finnegans Wake while working as an English teacher in Paris, and then he couldn’t stop. His work has appeared in various print and online publications, including the International Herald Tribune, The Atlantic Online, and Bomb, and has been exhibited at the Shakespeare and Company bookstore and the Nouvel Organon Gallery in Paris, and at Urban Light Gallery in Seattle. Artist present.

Woodland Park Presbyterian Church: 225 N 70th St
Featuring artist Susan Ringstad Emery
I enjoy working in oil, acrylic, graphite, and mixed media. Approachability, identification with subject matter, creativity, and expressiveness are important to me in my art. Issues that grab my attention include native artists in contemporary times, child development, special needs, language and culture. I am fascinated by the effects of color, light, and shadow in my everyday environment.

I hope to express things that matter through my art, bring attention to issues, record history, or create legacy. For me, making art is a fulfillment of purpose and an outlet to express ideas that stay with me-those ideas which persist until brought forward.

My influences include my cultures, family, people and places of the world and inspiration by other artists such as my art teacher Sandra Lepper, Paul Owen Lewis, Eric Carle, Alexandra Day, Diego Rivera, my maternal grandfather Teddy Sockpick- whose art was expressed through his skilled scrimshaw etchings, and my paternal grandmother Florence Selberg-Ringstad, who placed a priority on the arts and enjoyed working in watercolor. I live in the Pacific Northwest with my family.
