Featured Artist: Rick Williams

Rick “RT” Williams is a seventh generation Nitinaht carver of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations. He is not just a woodcarver, but a community leader. In 2010, Rick’s brother, John T Williams was shot 4 times and killed by a Seattle Police officer. 50 year old John Williams was also a master woodcarver. John was crossing the street, committing no crime, and was shot in the back only 4.7 seconds after the officer left his car. John’s murder ignited outrage amongst the community towards the Police Department. When no charges were brought against the officer, Rick and others feared that some protests may become violent. Rick responded to the heinous act by bringing the community together as one in honoring John by hand carving and raising a 34-foot memorial totem in Seattle Center. The totem stands to honor John’s art, his legacy and to symbolize the community’s response. Rick continues to carve every day and teaches calm, peace, and honor. His positivity and wisdom make him a pleasure to be around. Each piece of his art is amazingly detailed and masterfully hand carved. ​

Featured Artists:  Tracy Simpson and Kappy Trigg
Monotypes

The Phinney Center Gallery will showcase the work of local printmakers Tracy Simpson and Kappy Trigg in February. In the work of Tracy Simpson, there are some themes that she comes back to over and over: time, layers, loss, endurance, what we show others, what we keep to ourselves, what we show ourselves, what we keep from ourselves. Despite all these thematic shifts, she is really quite a rule-governed person who needs anchors.

Northwest artist Kappy Trigg has established herself as one of the area’s noted monotype artists. The compelling monotypes and acrylic paintings in this exhibit exemplify the artist’s focus on unique surface, layering and keen eye for color. Come see their work in the Phinney Center Gallery February 3rd-26th and meet the artists during the Art Walk on Friday, February 12th 7-9 pm.

Featured Artist: Michael Berry

Michael Berry’s medium of choice is recycled paper. To create these masks, he up-cycled a common household item that tends to be thrown in the trash without a second thought: toilet paper rolls. He uses a method called “wet folding,” and loves how this process produces soft, almost organic lines and texture, creating deep grooves and valleys of expression, greatly enhanced by paint and application techniques. He tends to sculpt elderly faces that depict pain, agony, suffering, or disgruntlement, which leads one to wonder if there is a connection between the medium/subject matter and the human condition.
