Featured Artist: Amelia Sherritt

Amelia Sherritt has lived in the Seattle area her whole life and finds inspiration in her city as well as the surrounding beauty of the state of Washington.  Her passion lies within the study of Art History and love of industrious arts.  Amelia’s focus of creating recycled art started in 2007 and the palate of her work relies solely on the foils from emptied wine bottles.

Each piece of art contains hundreds, if not thousands of wine foils gathered from local wineries, restaurants and friendly winos.

“I love to think of how each foil represents a memory or experience shared.  By re-purposing these foils, I am able to make what would normally be thrown away into something long lasting and beautiful.”

Her current collection depicts a whimsical portrayal of various animals and other colorful subjects.

“Witch Essence”
What does it mean to be a Witch? To call oneself and be called a Witch? To practice a craft that is timeless, yet ever-changing? To be of this world, but also walk in liminal realms and to see the unseen and speak with the unknown? Through mixed media, the artist explores the realm of spirit, spellcraft, and witchery.

Laura Tempest Zakroff is an artist, author, designer, and dancer, based in Seattle, Washington. Laura received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. In her youth, she trained with honors at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia and was the first recipient of the Francis & Shirley Hipp award for excellence in the visual arts from the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts. Her artwork has received awards and recognition worldwide, and has been published in numerous books and magazines.

Laura works mainly in mixed media, combining printmaking techniques with painting and drawing, often using reclaimed wood and layered papers. Her work explores the realm of myth and other liminal spaces.

Featured Artist:  Tom Boatright and Artisan Oils 

The artisan oil paints that Tom creates allow him to paint a fluid style. He mixes raw oils, pigments, resins, powders and mica metallics to produce vibrant colors, surface textures, light refraction and organic patterns. The paints vary in viscosity and are layered, applied in a sequence, to produce certain effects. The painting may have heavy texture, luminescence or crystalline shapes. They collaborate with him in the process. More than color; they hold the energy:

“The paints are a prism of color; the vibrations create a light spectrum.” 

Tom’s process is alchemical; the paintings effect the artist and the audience. The canvas and paints are the container for the energy. It is an experiential process. If the art resonates, they convey emotion – they emote. It is escapism, through the illusion and glamour, to the real and illusive world beneath the surface. It is an invitation to experience the painting.

libraryschodda

Featured Artist: Graham Shodda

My work is primarily assembled from discarded, recycled, or salvaged materials — mostly metal — and many from a bygone era where I find an intrinsic beauty and style in their design and construction. I endeavor to invent a new existence for these abandoned objects, repurposing their streamlined or eclectic forms into unique pieces of art.

A single piece of ‘junk’ is often all it takes to inspire a project. Most of the components in the finished sculpture are recognizable and invoke curiosity, pleasure, and wonder for the viewer, which to my mind is part of the purpose and beauty of art.

As an artist, I am inspired by the human condition, with particular focus on the unique role that struggle plays in each of our lives.  Do we choose to succumb to our struggles, cope with them, or attempt to overcome?  Although some may argue that I often present “dark imagery,” my work is actually very optimistic in nature. I attempt to show humans in a positive light: each of us has the capacity to create good no matter how troubled we may be. Struggle, though it may manifest differently in each of our lives, is a shared experience that connects us all.  I explore this theme through a variety of mediums such as printmaking, collage, and performance art.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, nature has always been a significant part of my life and I am in constant awe of the beauty that surrounds us here. I’m inspired every day by the lush foliage, the sparkling lakes, and most of all, the panoramic mountain views that encompass our city. This natural beauty has been a continual and dependable source of joy throughout my life, and my work is in dedication to that joy; a series of studies in the perpetual pursuit of capturing it on a canvas.

Featured Artist: Lee Harper
Photography

I live and work in the neighborhood and a lot of my photos are taken within walking distance. My photography has evolved in the last few years, first with a focus on macro photography, and now I have a growing interest in all things flying, as well as black and white photography. I upped my game after finally breaking out the camera manual and investing in some photography classes.

Phinney Books will feature some of my Little Locals, mini art that reminds me of making shrink dinks growing up (except for the burning plastic smell of course!) The reality is that most of us don’t have a lot of room on our walls for big art. These little guys can hang on a wall or sit on a shelf and they make great gifts!  There will also be some framed art, including some of my abstract photography, created by intentionally moving the camera while taking a photograph.  The end result is something that looks more like a watercolor than a photograph.

I’ve been a digital artist for 17 years. I love to mix mid century modern design and graphic illustration. I’m passionate about color, shapes, and creating a joyful feeling of nostalgia with a modern twist. As I move forward in life I am realizing art and life is an ever-evolving journey.  I currently live in North Seattle with my husband and two small dogs. I absolutely love coffee, looking for vintage treasures, and spending time with friends.

“Unity” (the piece above) was created in response to recent events. There is a uniqueness in individuality but when people stand together unified in thought and in love, true beauty exists.

Featured Artist: David Eggehorm

Currently I am a Ballard High School student and paint whenever I can. I enjoy all types of art from the pencil drawings I did when I was younger to Aerosolgrafia (spray paint art), Acrylic on Canvas and Oil on Canvas. My most recent being Oil on Canvas. Over the last year, I have been looking into the field of digital concept art. I find that trying different art styles is enjoyable and has contributed to my growth as an artist.

I paint because it makes me happy, and if I can make others happy in the process then I know I’m doing the right thing. When I paint, I am always looking for new ways to express my ideas and get the viewer engaged as much as possible. My goal as an artist is to become the best I can be and use my God given talent to bless others.

WILD

This collection of photographs, taken in 2017, documents non-human animals who are living at various points of intersection with humans.. From the Salt River WIld Horse Herd in Arizona, to Wolves and Wolf Dogs living in Sanctuary, what does it mean to be wild in America?   What do we humans really know about our wild kin, what do we think we know, and how much do our gross misunderstandings lead to harm? The questions themselves demand that we look in the eyes of our non-human kin and ask, “Who are you?” while looking deeply at ourselves and asking, “Who am I?”

Donna is a Certified Marine Naturalist, Artist, and Education Professional who specializes in arts-infused teaching and learning, environmental education, and trans-species relational learning.

I am a watercolor painter living in Greenwood.

I have been teaching watercolor painting at the Lifetime Learning Center for three years.

I especially enjoy the watercolor medium because of its freshness and transparency.  It is perfect for capturing nature and so transportable.  Occasionally I will add ink to a painting to enhance it.

I have spent much of my life hiking in the wilderness and enjoy painting nature, especially on location.   I especially enjoy plein air painting in our beautiful Northwest.  I carry a small palette, a few brushes, and some watercolor paper.  Despite the extra weight, I also love to take my paints on hiking and backpacking trips in the Cascades, Olympics and Canadian Rockies.

I also love painting in Seattle.  I find the buildings in places like Ballard quite fascinating.  I also enjoy doing some of our Seattle landmarks such as the Troll or Elephant Car Wash.

Featured Artist: Jena Marie Thompson presents I’ll Fly Away

I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away . . .

Death of a loved one is one of the most detrimental times in a person’s life. Mourning the loss of one of the most influential people in your life may take years, even a lifetime. These images are a personal project of mourning the loss of my grandmother, not only an inspiration but a strong supporter in my life. The use of birds is connected with the symbolism that birds, being the only species able to be present on earth and fly to the heavens. Not unlike the people who leave this world onto the next, their souls not being present on earth, but within our memories.

Memories of my grandmother singing the religious hymn I’ll Fly Away correlates with the idea of parting this life, along with the subject matter. The technique of scanning different specimen and parts of birds and their life cycle is an examination on the human life cycle, through an emotional sense, focusing on decay. The last week of my grandmother’s life was spent in the confines of stark hospital walls. This experience has only been the beginning of both religious and philosophical exploration of the purpose a single life holds. Many of the images show the fragility of the objects shown, a metaphor for the fragility of life. It is my intent that the work not only be a personal memorial and mourning of a loved one, but also a reminder of the flightiness of life.

. . . Oh how glad and happy when we meet, I’ll fly away . . .

Jena Marie Thompson is a Northwest born photographer. She spent four years at a commercial photography school and earned her Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography in 2015. Her focus is in fine art photography. Her method of creating art is to generate imagery that is not only therapeutic to herself, but her audience as well.

When Jena isn’t creating art, she also enjoys photographing people. Whether it’s portraits or editorial work, her eye for location lighting is above the rest. She enjoys finding new locations and making her shoots with clients fun and easy going.

Featured Artist: Anouk Rawkson

If Kandinsky and Walt Disney dueled to the death with sacks of My Little Ponies in a film by John Waters, the resulting stills might approach the bracing, pop-saturated aesthetic of Anouk Rawkson. The multimedia visual artist, who has shown extensively in the Northwest, will be showing four pieces from his anti-corporate series “THE RAT.” See some of the city’s best art, hang out, drink wine in a teleporter!

Va’sil’s artwork is a mixture of the vibrant daydreams and real-life events which shape his reality. It reflects who he is as a person; a flawed, deep-thinking perfectionist. It’s meant to contain a sense of mystery as you try to decipher it’s meaning. Crazy, colorful.

Featured Artist: Shelly Smith

Amateur scientist, professional artist, lover of microorganisms, painter of Protozoa, and general admirer of the natural world, I make paintings based on observed samples of water gathered from many places around the world. I have nicknamed these “cell portraits” and consider them a different way of determining a sense of place. I use the medium of illustration, gouache, gold, and sometimes even salt and soil, to create my paintings.

I’m interested in the microcosmos, the unseen engine of life in our word that keeps creation digesting food, making oxygen, returning to dust, and springing forth anew. From blastocyst to decomposition bacteria, we’re all a bunch of beautiful, cycling cells.
