poster

PhinneyWood’s BIG art walk will be Friday, May 13, from 6-9 p.m. and Saturday, May 14, from noon to 5 p.m.

Originally a stand-alone annual event, The BIG One is now the centerpiece of the monthly Art Up PhinneyWood art walks, held the second Friday of each month.

The BIG One includes 70+ venues and 150+ artists. Because of its long history, it attracts hundreds of art walkers. Friday night, in particular, is a festive occasion and becomes a “neighborhood party.”

Featured Artist: Courtney Martin

I have been shooting around the Seattle area for over 8 years. With a fine art background, I want to bring another level to my Portrait photography: A story. My goal is to perfect each and every shoot into a story the viewer can relate to. Working closely with my team, models, hair and makeup artists, stylists and assistants, I ensure continuity between every element, and I edit the images in a near obsessive way. I enjoy connecting with the creative world, and pushing conceptual boundaries. I have been featured in Dark Beauty Magazine, Avari Magazine, Numinous Magazine, and Obscurae Magazine, featuring work from local designers. Collaborating with creative souls around me is my passion.

Music Performance: The Hawkins-Walters Duo (cello and piano) celebrate the release of their new full length album “Tales of Woe” (available on CDBaby.com and all streaming platforms) featuring works by Shostakovich, Liszt, Schubert, and Seattle composer Adam Haws. Bradley Hawkins and Lesleigh Walters are active teachers and performers with burgeoning studios and colorful performance schedules.

Featured Artist: Robin Jordan

I am a self-taught artist who has been living in Washington since 1980. My work is about people I know and have seen, things I have done with my family and friends and would like to do.  My brilliant colors and movement tell a story.  My faceless people makes many think of what he or she is saying or how they are feeling.  I have always enjoyed drawing and painting as a young girl and I am glad I brought it back into my adult life.

Featured Artist: David Wright

Born deaf in a hearing family, I became visually communicative, to show people what I see in the world, in my mind’s explorations. My ability to see and understand visual detail is enhanced because of this. Art, being a major mode of my communicating with the world is why I have done urban design planning and landscape architecture for almost my entire career.

I am a geology nut, citizen scientist, anthropologist, astronomer, and love archaeology. It’s much easier to show complex geomorphological processes (how the earth is shaped) graphically through art and design than by writing. I also love reading maps, and making them both professionally and as a hobby.

Artist will be present Friday and Saturday.

Laser cut art

I love to look at beautiful things. I love to explore intricate details. I love artworks which inspire my imagination and lead my mind down paths of creative thought. When I create art, I strive to design works that bring wonder and amazement to all viewers. I like to design around themes which reflect the natural world and which also reach toward the land of dreams. I enjoy working in the medium of laser cut wood because it emphasizes the qualities of the natural material and allows for a unique and complex interplay of positive and negative space in the building of intriguing imagery.

In addition, we will have Meg from Meg’s Retro Cookies present with her delicious cookies!  http://megsretrocookies.com/

The Name Kolab comes from the Prefix Ko meaning little or small and Lab short from Laboratory. “Kolab” is also a nickname for collaborative which is the theme for the gallery.

Featured Artist: Megan Noel Smith

Megan Noel is a painter, illustrator, textile and mixed media artist working in the Northwest. For many years she has been known for her beadwork, but in recent years has chosen to focus more on her equally intricate painting and illustrations.

Her favorite media are watercolor and pen and ink. Her paintings and illustrations range from dreamy and surreal to delicate and whimsical. She seeks not to create masterpieces to grace the walls of museums, but rather to create smaller more intimate works to fit into the lives of readers and writers, poets and dreamers, mother, fathers, and everyday folk.

Featured Artist: Mallory Milke

I’ve been painting ever since I was a kid, but never really thought of doing it as anything more than a hobby. As I filled up the walls of my home with my own art, I had so many of my friends and family asking for their own that I decided I might as well go for it and see where it takes me. Three years later, tons of empty paint tubes and I’m here, working for myself and loving every minute of it. I get to stay home with my son and create fun, colorful paintings that I love.

I’m inspired by things I love, like mischievous creatures, Pretty Dark things and bright whimsy colors. I do a variety of styles but love bright colors and animals the most,adding a slight whimsical feeling to owls, Lions, Lemurs and any other creature that tickles my fancy.

Featured Artist: Joshua Boulet

Joshua Boulet wants to Sketch the World. When he arrived in Seattle, he sketched it, but he never quite left. “There is a lot about the Pacific Northwest I love” He says with a smile.

Featured Artist: Richard Jahn

I am a painter and though I don’t try to paint like any other artist you could probably put me in a category similar to Vincent Van Gogh, at least in attitude towards painting.
I like to experiment with lots of different artistic ideas but overall I want my art to express who I am as a person and have a certain honesty about them that comes from doing my best as it comes from my heart and hand, as opposed to doing something that I was taught – regardless of subject matter. Most of my paintings are local recognizable scenes.

Featured Artists Saturday: 3 Play Ricochet, a bluegrass band

3 Play Ricochet is a bluegrass band that knows no boundaries, or perhaps
simply respects no boundaries. They happily spill over into country blues,
ragtime, and Appalachian old-time music. They gleefully steal from the
Beatles, Joe Cocker, Dave Brubeck, and Johnny Mercer right along with Doc
Watson, Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, and the Carter Family.  They call it “String
Band Americana – Bluegrass and Beyond.”

The band members are Peter Langston, Tina Webster, Ron Haas, and Bonya
McGarrity.

Band leader Peter Langston has been playing bluegrass music for more than
50 years, starting in New York City’s Greenwich Village in the late 50s, then
in Portland Oregon in the early 70s, and now in Seattle. Together Peter,
Tina, Ron and Bonya represent the 4 geographical corners of America and they
call on their differing backgrounds to make exciting, multi-faceted music that
pleases the mind as well as the soul!

Featured Artist: Mary Lou Dickerson

After spending 18 years as a Washington State Representative I wondered, “Is there life after the Legislature?” Indeed there is for me, and it is the life of an artist.

Being a Northwest native surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers and meadows not to mention awe inspiring sunsets, it was destined that I was bound to turn to Mother Nature for artistic inspiration. Although I have dabbled in still life paintings and portraits, landscape paintings feed my soul like nothing else.

My starting point is usually a photo that I or a friend or family member have taken. Translating that into a painting is an adventure of discovery.  In looking deeply at the photo I see patterns and colors that become the focus of my work.

Featured Artist: Markel Uriu
Mixed Media

Markel Uriu blends various mediums and practices to create abstract narratives. It is ephemeral with an emphasis on process, inevitably placing it within the context of time. Pieces change through personal manipulation as well as natural shift and decay. Change shows the natural life cycle, the birth and deterioration of objects meant to comfort, fixate on, or defend. Blankets, barriers, and pelts have as much a cycle within the piece as in the botanical sources. Drawing on myths, tropes, and classical narratives, she uses repetitive tasks that speak to the mythical tasks of steadfastness and endurance, but also more essential aspects of living: heartbeats, blood flow, and breath.

Friday,6 -9 pm: Meet Markel Uriu and learn about working with natural materials

The Fixture Gallery: 8221 Greenwood Ave N
Art Up Site

Featured Artist: Simon Campbell

I first adopted photography as my creative outlet of choice. I’ve been taking photographs for 20 years, since receiving a cheap 35mm point and shoot camera from my parents in my early teens. Ever since then I have been developing an eye for artistic things: color, light, balance, composition etc. Other than art classes at senior school in my native England, I didn’t pick up the paintbrush until 2005, into my mid-twenties. Already self-taught in photographic composition, a steady stream of collages, mixed media pieces, and mostly paintings emerged. Evolving into a loose expressive style that still remains varied.

My process involves many layers. I let my paintings evolve somewhat naturally, the idea I have in my head when I begin is sometimes very different to the finished piece. I build my layers with colors and sometime surprise myself by putting down a layer not knowing that it will be the final touch and the painting will be deemed “done!”

Appetizers and drinks Friday evening.

Photography

I am a graphic designer, a photographer, a musician and a collector living in the Phinney/Greenwood community. Photos of a band or performer can be a visual record of their stage presence or a captured moment, one that revels their energy or insights to their personality.

These photographs are from some of the many different and varied concerts I’ve attended; some from stage access, some taken from the audience, some of the audience. Musicians and bands, such as, Jake Shimabukuro, Taj Mahal, The Black Angels and Jimmy Cliff have all provided me an opportunity to capture a unique moment of their performances.

As a long time resident of the Phinney/Greenwood area and a supporter of the Phinney Neighborhood Association, I will be donating $10 to the PNA for each photo sold during this exhibit.

Featured Artist: Tara McDermott

The subject matter of my work stems from a love and obsession with the natural world. It is a place I find comfort and where my imagination runs wild. I begin by photographing the world around me. From this raw material, I overlap layers of film then scan them together. The process results in joining fragments of places that couldn’t possible exist together. Encaustic wax adds a layer of texture and helps create the feeling of an ethereal dreamscape, or a portal into another realm.

Kolab Studio/ Gallery, formerly P.D.C., is a group of local artists/designers that reside in the north west.

The Name Kolab comes from the Prefix Ko meaning little or small and Lab short from Laboratory. “Kolab” is also a nickname for collaborative which is the theme for the gallery.

Artists have the chance to work together on paintings, projects and special events for the gallery space.

Kolab Gallery is proud to introduce new artist Megan Noel Smith.

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Megan Noel is a painter, illustrator, textile and mixed media artist working in the Northwest. For many years she has been known for her beadwork, but in recent years has chosen to focus more on her equally intricate painting and illustrations.

Her favorite media are watercolor and pen and ink. Her paintings and illustrations range from dreamy and surreal to delicate and whimsical. She seeks not to create masterpieces to grace the walls of museums, but rather to create smaller more intimate works to fit into the lives of readers and writers, poets and dreamers, mother, fathers, and everyday folk.

Megan has been creating, initially with beads and later with other media, since her early days, growing up on a sheep farm on Vashon Island, and surrounded by weaving, spinning, dyeing, felting, and a appreciation and respect for all forms of textile arts. Megan discovered her passion and gift for beading in 1990 and began teaching several years later. She has developed her own style of bead embroidery. Her work includes beaded dolls, evening purses, amulet purses, brooches, and buttons. She also works with fabric and fibers to create wearable works of art, each utterly one of a kind.

While these creative interests may seem far reaching, there is a thread of connection that weaves through them all, her own unique style that is immediately recognizable in her works, from watercolor to elaborate hand knitted shawls. In a time when many artist’s works seem to “all look the same”, Megan’s work stands out as unique.

Megan has been teaching beadwork and drawing classes over the last 15 years and is currently considering expanding her offerings.

Megan has shown her artwork locally and nationally in various galleries and other venues, including: Mesolini & Amici , Turtle Press, The Artists Tree, BKB & Company, The Artifactory, Gallery Ten, The International Bead and Button Show, the National Button Convention, North Seattle Community College and Beads and Beyond.

Featured Artists: Georgetown Atelier Student Exhibition

Georgetown Atelier presents the student work of the full-time atelier. By teaching the foundations of classical art as the building blocks for professional artists, this program is designed to develop visually inventive gallery and industry artists alike.

The work represents the three tiered curriculum taught at Georgetown Atelier—Tier I: Drawing Foundations, Tier II: Painting Foundation with optional Digital Painting, and Tier III: Advanced Painting and Thesis Projects. Throughout the program, the students are training their eye in order to see and capture the subtleties of what they are observing. As they work towards becoming more accurate in their observations, they are creating a visual library from which they can work constructively and inventively. The program lays the foundations of observational and constructive methods from which the students are then able to build upon to achieve their individual goals.

CLOSING RECEPTION for Nikki Frumkin

Nikki Frumkin is an artist, teacher and alpinist living in Seattle, Washington. Her work is inspired by time spent hiking, climbing and mountaineering in the great pacific northwest. She is interested in the patterns in nature she finds as she explores.

Nikki believes that sharing stories makes the world a better and more interconnected place. Her work is driven by a desire to share the visual stories she collects as she adventures. As she goes, she bring her sketchbook and watercolors. Sometimes this is serene; sometimes it is bitterly cold.

Nikki Frumkin’s work thrives on the conflict between the wild wonder of the outdoors and the challenges that go with it. Although it is joyful, hiking can be very lonely as well, mountaineering more so. Mountaineering requires a person to spend long periods of time separated from their team by a rope for safety, often in the dark and alone in their thoughts. These activities are both incredibly difficult and supremely rewarding. Representing these ideas on paper through art gives them meaning.

By invoking this contrast in her work, Nikki aims to inspire wonder for the outdoors. In this way, the viewer will be able to discover what they already know about who they are and how they belong to the wild.

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. 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 might become violent. Rick responded to the heinous act by bringing the community together 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.

Featured Artist: Jesse Ballnik

Jesse Ballnik is a resident of the Phinneywood neighborhood and 1st grader at Daniel Bagley Elementary.  She works in the mediums of photography, watercolor, ink, acrylics, ceramics, and glass.

The works here on display are all inspired by the Greenwood gas explosion of 2016 and the community’s work of repair and relief.  She wanted her work to remind viewers both the destruction and loss to the neighborhood and the beauty that remained and could be seen in the community’s coming together after the incident.  Many in the neighborhood will remember that in the days following the blast one of the most visible signs of the explosion was the shattered windows of the impacted residences and business and broken glass that covered streets and sidewalks.  For this show Jesse choose to work exclusively with or directly on glass in recognition of the unique role glass played in how this disaster impacted her neighborhood.  All proceeds for this show will go to fund the Greenwood Disaster Relief Fund at the Phinney Neighborhood Association.

Featured Artists: Kati Gegenheimer, Francesca Lohmann

SAD Gallery is pleased to present PLEASURE QUEST, a two-person exhibition featuring new work from NYC-based painter Kati Gegenheimer and Seattle-based sculptor Francesca Lohmann. Gegenheimer’s colorful paintings and installations border on the abstract, while still referencing landscape, architecture, and the allure of the unknown. Lohmann’s soft-hard forms hang, curl, lean and slump in place.

Together, Gegenheimer’s and Lohmann’s works beg to be touched, further explored, and traced back to their liquid origins. Now crystallized, arrested, dry paint and plaster form richly-textured pieces which both stand alone and use the exhibition space as their substrate
