Our event will be October 8, 5-9 PM.

Based in Seattle, but Alaska-raised, I create drawings and paintings of some of our rarest and most elusive flora and fauna found in the Pacific Northwest.

As a natural science artist and illustrator, I strive to bring elements of the wilderness into the viewer’s every day. Whether the viewer finds a moment’s escape from the commotion of city life in the flora and fauna depicted, or if the art elicits curiosity in the indigenous species found within the Pacific Northwest.

Ken’s Market: 7231 Greenwood Ave N
Art Up and Chow Down Site

Featured Artist: Veronica Sauer

Veronica Sauer creates art rich with daring color and bold composition. Often working from photographs to echo real life, she paints in fast-drying acrylic with large brushes and pallet knives, prioritizing shape, shadow, scale, and light. Hers are images created through the lens of a curious and imaginative mind.

In her portrait series, Veronica’s dynamic style offers fresh perspective on iconic faces, illuminating individual stories, and giving breath and movement to her subjects. Veronica‘s work in abstract realism casts a wide field of impact. Pieces highlight the emotional power of color infused into the heart of an image.

Veronica‘s passion for painting gained momentum with the brilliant teaching of an eccentric art history teacher. In University studies, a three-year position at the Henry Art Gallery, and travels to US and European art museums, Veronica was drawn to the vitality of Expressionism and Fauvism, art genres drenched in rich color contrasts. Following a corporate career and the interruption of her active life by a sports related accident, Veronica embraced her passion for creating her own art. Self-taught, Veronica has exhibited at corporate events and art walks, Lund’s Fine Art Gallery, and enthusiastically participated in “Artist in Action” programs. VSauerArt creations continue to gain public exposure and win commission work nationally.

American born and dual citizen of the US and Germany, Veronica Sauer lives in Seattle with a studio near Mount Rainier. Whether Portraits, Wildlife, Naturescapes, Abstracts, or Commissions, her artwork radiates her passion for painting.

Her work will be on display all month.

Featured Artist: Matthew McClosky: Painting by Sound with Synesthesia

I experience visual-to-auditory synesthesia, meaning I hear what I see. When I look at a painting, I hear a complex, layered wall of sound that encompasses all aspects of the work: its proportions, curves, shapes and colors all blended together into one complex harmony. It is this overall harmony of a piece that guides my composition as I endeavor to make each aspect of a work fit within this harmonic structure.

Prints available for purchase. 
Show Closing: October 29
