Art site

Featuring the work of two artists:

Martijn Caspar Swart: I began to teach myself painting after many years of drawing and began my studies in art independently. I closely scrutinized artists and masterpieces to understand their techniques; I spent time in museums and galleries in the Netherlands, France, and Spain. I was predominantly in my own mind exploring creative ideas. Guided by my developing understanding of the world of master painters, I decided to study for several years under Juliette Aristides at Gage Academy and expand my technical abilities. The human figure, as a subject, was reborn to me over the course of my studies and it is now time for me to revisit the ambitions of my creative mythologies in more personal projects.

Mandy Hallenius: Mandy has completed more than four years of drawing and painting coursework at the Aristides Atelier at Gage Academy, Corry Studio of Figurative Art in Salt Lake City, and Mims Studios in North Carolina. She is President and Co-Founder of The DaVinci Initiative and is a certified K-12 art teacher and board member of the Washington Art Education Association. She has 7+ years of classroom experience, and teaches professional development workshops for art teachers all over the United States.

thefibergallery

Art site

Featuring fiber art by Maile Jones, including pieces from her River Series as well as the storms and fires of nature, painted on rug canvas in wool fabric, roving, handspun yarn, dyed locks, and sari silk.

I am a fiber nut. I love the texture; the color and form and dimensionality of fiber. I love that fiber comes from animals such as sheep and alpacas. I love choosing a fleece, skirting, washing, carding, dyeing, and spinning it.

Just as my medium is organic so is my inspiration; the subject of my pieces is likely to be drawn from nature. For example, I am in love with rivers. I feel that I am just beginning to find ways of expressing that in fiber art.

Rug hooking is tactile, rhythmic, meditative and wild. It’s been described as painting with wool. For me, rug hooking is the best of all possible worlds — the richness of art using fiber.

Featuring the work of Jodi Gaylord, owner of City Escapes nature Photography, and busking by Seattle Historical Arts for Kids.

The natural world is an amazing place, full of dignity, drama, and humor – and of course, mesmerizing beauty. City Escapes Nature Photography was founded as a means to capture some of Mother Nature’s more expressive moments, from the regal to the goofy, and share them with other lovers of nature. If you are a fan of wild animals and beautiful places, come spend some time with us: polar bears, lions, and elephants are just some of the critters awaiting you. We offer limited-edition prints in a range of options from giclee on canvas to classic photographic prints, either framed and ready to hang on the wall, or awaiting your own personal framing designs.

Seattle Historical Arts for Kids (SHAK) has been introducing young people to 12th-18th century music, dance, theater, and culture since 2005. SHAK has been invited to revive our 2014 adaptation of Alcina at Early Music America’s Young Performers Festival on June 12 in Boston. It’s an amazing opportunity for the cast of kids and teens, aged 6-17, who will be right in the midst of the Boston Early Music Festival, hailed by The Times (London) as “the world’s leading festival of early music.” All of our students are learning about the craft of performance, working with experts in the field, and taking their places in the chain of people keeping these old arts alive for future generations. We hope to inspire our own young performers with a glimpse of the widest horizons for early music in America — and to encourage other teaching artists to create their own venues for children and teens to engage with such beautiful and intellectually enriching historical material.

Featuring paintings by artist Mary Anne Nagy.
Mary Anne received her degree in art from the University of San Diego. Her Pause for Animals series of bright acrylic animal paintings was born shortly before she and her family (including husband Bill, and daughters Anna Beth and Mary Lee) uprooted from the Midwest and moved to Seattle in 1996. In Pause for Animals a bright sense of whimsy is often married to an aura of mystery and wonder: “Funny. Scary. Like us, not like us—who are these furry, scaled and feathered ones who also inhabit this fragile planet?” This group of paintings is part of her ongoing dream to combine her delight in painting animals with a longstanding interest in issues of animal advocacy and compassion. It is done with a prayer that we humans gain a greater love and respect for the strange, unique and wonderful found in them and work to translate that into making this a better world for all.
Fun for all ages, there will be appetizers, juice and wine available Friday night. Children’s art activities in the lobby.
