Abram’s Chiropractic:  7815 Greenwood Ave N
Art Up Site

Featured Artist: Caitlin Fennelly

Caitlin Fennelly is a visual artist living and working in Seattle. Originally from Philadelphia PA, she has shown in several galleries across the country. Her work incorporates an underdrawn linear system to describe the connectivity of space. She draws from a spiritual influence, in which subjects embody “divine icons” in sacred spaces. The images suggest a solitary empowerment in the quiet details around us. Living in a society wrought with distractions, fast interactions- our sense of patience is disrupted. She creates work that offers an opportunity for reflection and the viewer to be here now.

Featured Artist: Bobby DiTrani

Join us as we welcome artist, Bobby DiTrani. Bobby’s art will be on display for December and will debut on Art Walk night.

Bobby’s work focuses on themes of mythology, archetype, and implied narrative, often with an environmental undertone. Drawing from past and contemporary influences, new myths are transcribed for our times in a figurative manner, a climate of unrest described hovering amongst the natural world.

Select prints will be available for sale as well.

Featured Artist: Anthony Garzzona:

HEADS is a series of characters with strong, less than perfect personalities. I try to imagine each head with a specific voice or behavior that plays on repeat to give the static illustration more presence.

Drawing has been my favored way to stay creative since the early school years. And it’s almost always been heads: human heads, monster heads, animal heads, your dad’s head, heads with heads, all the heads. I kept this attachment to character creation and drawing through college (Industrial Design major through the Art Institute of Seattle), and have applied it to my current career as a Senior Designer creating beer tap handles for local, national, and international breweries.

When starting a new character illustration, I start by thinking about the character’s personality, what features I want them to have, and how to exaggerate those features in ways to make final persona a little (or a lot) gross. I choose pen and ink for its simplicity, speed, quick contrast, and ability to create large bold areas and thin detailed ones.

Featured Artist: Chris Blakely

Seattle photographer Chris Blakeley first turned to toy photography when scheduling photo shoots turned into social calculus. Looking for something more immediate and portable, he first turned to toy dinosaurs before moving on to the infinite story telling possibilities found in Lego. He aims to craft narratives either in single images or full comic books such as his photo novel series Adrift and can usually be found crouching over rock gardens and parks looking for the just the right angle. He also hates talking about himself in the third person.
