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.

Opening reception features tunes by Shane Degan

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.

SAD Gallery: 9761 3rd Ave NW    NEW VENUE
Art Up Site

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
