May 11 Featured Artist: Kyle Krauskopf

Lightning wielding, mixed media artist Kyle Krauskopf creates like other people breathe. Currently embroiled in a daily, year long, drawing project, Krauskopf’s works, affectionately referred to as “Visual Vomit” or VV, can best be described as a pictorial menagerie.  Each piece strives to marry realistic depiction of people, places, and things, with less detailed, but powerfully colored objects.  These pieces typically “radiate” from a centrally located theme or idea.  Repetition, color, size, detail, and shape all go into the process of achieving a visual balance.

Rosemary is an English major and has always loved reading, seeking out passages that resonate with her.  Her watercolors give expression to the inspiration she finds in Nature, especially the flowers, leaves, trees and animals of the Pacific Northwest.  By pairing her paintings with literary quotes and poems from her readings for this exhibit entitled Watercolors & Words, Rosemary has curated a delightful union of the literary and visual arts, a tribute to the Greenwood Library where she has worked for the past 18 years.

The Grinning Yogi: 8554 ½ Greenwood Ave N (FRIDAY ONLY)
Art Up Site

Featured Artist: Debra Stewart 

I make my art as a way to communicate my passion and joy of nature with others. By mixing epoxy with pigments, then heating, curing and making subsequent layers, slowly I can build a window into a tiny slice of nature. 
I hope to convey through my art my passion for water, geology, amorphous shape and form, and my visions of the infinite- the lifeforms in a drop of water, the fire in a cup of lava, the millions of years in a small layered rock- and for the viewer to have an emotional tug linking my art to a memory in their natural world.

Featured Artist:  Catherine Honoré Jones

Catherine Honoré Jones is a product designer and ceramic artist with her studio in Ballard. For her, creating pottery by hand is a tactile and immersive experience, one that is literally centering and grounding…and slightly addictive. Catherine is guided by a desire to create the objects that surround us in our lives and homes differently, uniquely, and made to last. Translating her ideas to material is only second to her pleasure when people feel compelled to touch her work and take it home.

Featured Artist: Kathy Ross
Sculptural constructions

The language of my tin constructions uses an alphabet of adopted /adapted components that were designed for other uses. The soldering process comes from the stained glass world. Armature materials from the building industry. The tin itself contributes cultural iconography from the cookie-sharing, tea-packaging grocery and thrift store cultures.

After I’m done with them, cookie tins no longer resemble cookie tins. Sona tubes/ plaster/ spray-foam insulation are no longer hardware store inventory. Cloth is no longer cloth. It all speaks now of forest/village/global communities and environments, with a highly detailed colorful imprecision.

I make use of the world’s materials and the world’s innuendos. But these are my own sculptural constructions. My processes, my little jokes and commentary. With the hot solder, an aroma of cinnamon or lavender rises up, from the previous occupants of the tins.  So, as with any mixed media sculpture, the almost-scent of the found object flavors the piece. Reminiscent of how we are all always inescapably shuffling through the magical detritus of this complex world.

Featured Artist: Amelia Sherritt

Having grown up in the Seattle area, Amelia Sherritt finds inspiration in her city as well as the surrounding beauty of Washington State. Her focus of creating recycled art started in 2007 and the palate of her work relies solely on the foils from emptied wine bottles, glued on hand-built wood blocks.

She has made over 350 wine foil pieces to date and works to create new ideas and commissions alike.  Each piece of art contains hundreds, if not thousands of recycled wine foils which need to be cut, prepped and smashed before being utilized for her work.  Even then it takes hours of hand detailing to complete a single piece.  Most of her materials come from local tasting rooms, restaurants and friends contributing something that represents so much more than just recycled art.

“I think of how each foil represents a memory or experience shared.  Who hasn’t had a laugh over a bottle of wine with a friend?  People love wine, people love art, so it just makes sense that they mix well together.”  

Her love for animals, nature, color and eclectic themes make for an intriguing mix of whimsy and realism.  Along with texture, color also plays a vital role in her work as she does not use any paint or pigment in her art.  Amelia believes that taking everyday, unwanted materials to make art forces us to recognize the beauty that can come from turning trash into treasure. 

“By re-purposing these foils, I am able to make what would normally be thrown away into something long lasting and beautiful.”

Phinney Books:  7405 Greenwood Ave. N

Featured Artist: Marty Chakoian

Marty Chakoian has been a resident of the Phinney/Greenwood community for more than 45 years. As he walks the neighborhood, he is affectionately referred to by both friends and strangers as “that crazy old guy with the three enormous white dogs.” Perhaps you have seen them.

Marty started constructing masks in 2017, after a motorcycle accident left him in possession of damaged Harley parts that were too beautiful to throw away. As he tells it, “When we see the relationships between discarded or repurposed objects, large or small, we can if we are lucky envision the life that they and we contain. Masks hide us and reveal us, just as they hide and reveal the strange interactions of their components. Also, bringing inanimate things to life is fun!”

His bike is fine now and he still rides.

Featured Artist: Stacy Garfield

Greetings! I’ve recently moved to the Pacific Northwest (PNW) and developed a passion for nature and adventure photography. I’ve always loved taking pictures and I especially love being in nature, so this career change has been a perfect fit for me.

You can see a selection of my nature photographs in the Gallery.  I love sharing my view of the world with others. 

I was at Ruby Beach in September taking photos of a sunset.  A young man walked over to me and asked me to photograph him proposing to his girlfriend. It was such a loving and emotional experience for me and I was hooked at that moment.  I want to make that moment special for everyone involved. Something that you can look back upon and reflect on as a positive experience.

The Subversive Saints Collection: Changing the World by Turning It On Its Head

While examining how Jesus’ parables radically spoke out against social norms and subverted the expectations put upon a religious figure, we asked the WPPC community to depict other examples of people who speak truth to power and use their voices for the lifting up of the marginalized.

We were inspired by contemporary artists who subvert the tradition of iconography to call attention to modern day issues in two different ways. Some use the classic characteristics of Christian religious icons to portray modern day figures who were unafraid to expose deep injustices and seek solutions and restitution (see “Martin Luther King of Georgia“ below). Others juxtapose biblical figures with modern day problems or movements (see “Don’t Call Me A Saint” below). Both of these ways subvert the tradition by calling attention to those among us who might not be officially canonized Saints but exemplify the subversive ways of Jesus or the parts of society for whom Jesus had greatest concern. The icons that inspired us and the icons we created are not meant to be objects of worship; they are images to set the context for our worship and to inspire faithful, courageous, and -dare we say -subversive living.

Meet the artists reception Saturday 3-5 pm
