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.

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.

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.

All my items are hand built then high fired.  I use paper clay for about 80% of the items I make.  The glaze will have a darker, earthier color.  I use a porcelain clay for the other 20%.  This allows for a brighter glaze color.  The high fire process allows each item to be used outside as it will not absorb water and also be microwave, dishwasher & oven safe.  Additionally, all glazes are food safe.

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.

I am convinced that this is part of mine”

Featured Artist: Cecile Disenhouse

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.

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.

Fabric of the Night Sky: Illustrations by Julia Y

Astrology is humanity’s search for our own reflections in the night sky. Each viewer projects an image of themselves on to the stars, and the stars reflect back powerful avatars.

The constellations and myths of the twelve zodiac signs have been observed for thousands of years across multiple continents. From classical mythology to Renaissance art to daily horoscopes, each era has its own way of keeping alive the stories that are woven into our collective consciousness.

This series is my visual retelling of the zodiac signs, based on my own interpretations of the myths and shapes of the constellations. I have combined my own sense of color, gesture, and unique mixed-media process to create a new incarnation of these ancient symbols. Each piece starts with a gestural drawing which is then printed on fabric, collaged to a background, painted and finally embroidered with an overlay of its constellation.

Featured Artist: Jessica Ghyvoronsky

I believe the secret to living a meaningful life is to spend it finding
out what makes us the most happy, and then to serve that gift to the
world. I’ve learned firsthand that using my giftings and highest strengths
in the service of something larger than myself has brought a level of
satisfaction and impact that has revolutionized the intention behind my
pursuit of the arts. I have had the privilege of being involved with
numerous community related art ventures that have given me the opportunity
to experience the beauty of using art as a language and a tool to inspire
people and bring positive change.

My goal is the same as nearly every other serious artist: To create works

Andrew Lamb Schultz’s background in art for children is immediately apparent in their work’s bright colors and “simple” lines.  Through this gentle, rose-colored lens, their sophisticated subject matter is uniquely striking. Funny, dark, frequently political, your first Schultz experience is like a late night dive bar heart-to-heart with the Kool-Aid man. Schultz will create a limited-edition print available only at Greenwood Space Travel Supply. ART! WINE! SEATTLE’S ONLY FUNCTIONAL TELEPORTER!

Featured artist: Amy Liz and Steve Tennant

Little Amy Liz lived in Illinois for 28 years; from the not so bad parts of Chicago to the sprawling cornfields of Dekalb and everywhere in between. She has always had a problem with authority and tradition. In her freshmen year of high school she was kicked out of art class and not allowed to study art any further. She spent a decade dropping in out of various schools and changing majors half a dozen times. In 2013 she finally earned an associate’s degree in graphic design. She discovered she hates typography. Her entry level design job was outsourced to someone in China. She packed up her cats and moved to Seattle. After a year or so she decided to paint whatever she felt like painting.

The viewer will find flaws in her composition and they might be intentional. There is also symbolism in the colors and shapes, those might be accidental. She believes the narrative of the artwork is up to the viewer. It is not her job to tell you what to think. She offers secret messages in her painting and meaning where there really isn’t any to be found. The square and the circle could represent the inequality of genders or it could just be a square and a circle. It’s her secret and your story.

Greenwood Rising – A show celebrating the art and community of Greenwood after the March 2016 explosion, presented by the PNA and Urban Hands. Days after a gas explosion damaged dozens of businesses in the heart of Greenwood, street artists organized by Greenwood nonprofit Urban Hands converged on the neighborhood to paint colorful plywood murals over blown-out windows and doors.

The murals slowly left the neighborhood as storefronts were repaired, but professional photographer Chuck Johnson has given the art new life by combining photos of the murals with mixed digital art to enhance, alter, and bring to life different components of the images. Greenwood Rising will showcase these uniquely community-based art pieces. The original pieces are not for sale but prints of most of the art pieces will be available for purchase.

Opening Reception: Friday, March 10, 7-9 pm.
Meet many of the artists and celebrate the community at the Opening Reception, which will take place one year after the Greenwood explosion.

Artist will be present.

Featured artist: Teresa Getty

Teresa Getty works in layers, creating an archeology of experience, weaving time and memory. Process informs content. Sanding, pulling things out of the work, or pouring over them acts on the idea of impermanence, allowing for unexpected evolution. Instances of significant imagery remain, acting as anchors for the viewer. Other personal references are almost entirely obscured, existing only as bits of information. Thus, the work becomes an opened visual diary expressed in the language of line and form with the dynamic of color as key.

Teresa Getty received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout the US.

Caitlin is a visual artist working in Seattle. She renders boundaries between real and invented and invented space using a combination of chalk pastel and acrylicc painting. Caitlin’s work explores themes of alternate realities, gender and religious representation. She uses classical approaches to portray figures in comtemplaive mindfulness; as the process of finding, losing and defining edges and texture takes patience and presence. Living in a culture wrought with distractions, fast interactions and instant gratification, our sense of patience is disrupted. Her objective is to create images that slow down and encourage the viewer to be here now.

Fabric of the Night Sky: Illustrations by Julia Y
February 10- March 05

Artist Reception Friday, February 10, 6-8PM

Astrology is humanity’s search for our own reflections in the night sky. Each viewer projects an image of themselves on to the stars, and the stars reflect back powerful avatars.

The constellations and myths of the twelve zodiac signs have been observed for thousands of years across multiple continents. From classical mythology to Renaissance art to daily horoscopes, each era has its own way of keeping alive the stories that are woven into our collective consciousness.

This series is my visual retelling of the zodiac signs, based on my own interpretations of the myths and shapes of the constellations. I have combined my own sense of color, gesture, and unique mixed-media process to create a new incarnation of these ancient symbols. Each piece starts with a gestural drawing which is then printed on fabric, collaged to a background, painted and finally embroidered with an overlay of its constellation.

Derek Orbiso Dizon is a Filipino American visual artist based in Seattle.  Born to immigrant parents from the Philippine Islands, the art Derek creates are expressions of a path in navigating and reclaiming the spirit, memory, and stories of his Ilokano, Cebuano, and Bikolano ancestry.  Derek believes cultural work and artistic expression can be used as a vessel for healing and resistance not only for Filipinos within the diaspora, but for all peoples around the world who have been impacted by centuries of colonization, war, genocide, and displacement.  Much of Derek’s work centers around stories of intergenerational grief, reclamation, and liberation.  As an organizer, Derek values the importance of community-centered healing arts spaces.  Derek is a member of the KapwaMana Collective, co-founder of the API Flying Bookshelf, and a community organizer with API Chaya. Recently, his latest works have been showcased at Out of Sight 2016 and SPEAN Rajana ARTS Summit: InterXections.

When I look into someone’s eyes or stand in the presence of nature, they are the muse. I use painting as my medium to express a feeling I cannot capture in words.

white mandalas on multi-colored backdrop

Featured Artist: Michelle Hickman

Michelle Hickman grew up in New York, graduated from Harvard, and now lives in the Seattle area.  She paints primarily with acrylics on canvas, and especially loves the beauty, symmetry, and symbolism of mandalas.  These ancient circular patterns are found across a broad array of cultures and religious traditions.  Michelle’s process begins with creating a backdrop to set the mood of the piece; next, she uses a compass, protractor, and ruler to create the circular grid; finally, acrylic paints are used to add various intricate details in a symmetrical pattern.  The process is very meticulous and slow, but simultaneously very rewarding.  Creating and studying these motifs can be a meditative tool, leading to increased feelings of peace and balance.

My work stems from a long running affinity for botany which, when I decided to follow my passion for photography, opened a whole new world of possibilities. I call them mandalas because each one is a microcosm of our dear Mama Earth and the land I forage from.

The diversity around us is fascinating and I’m in a full immersion course. I feel compelled to forage, dissect, and research all the plants I uncover. I create small studies with the vast array of flora by my home in the Pacific Northwest.

I capture my wild-crafted finds by natural light, spending hours making and photographing them. It brings me a joy I have never experienced. The flowers, seeds, nuts and leaves seem to speak as I arrange them. Time takes on new meaning due to the short shelf life of the plants.

These nature studies help me reflect on the perfectly imperfect beauty of an impermanent life. They keep me present.

Featured Artist: Jennifer Quick

My name is Jennifer Quick and I am a 28 year old Northwest native, born and raised in Lynnwood, Washington. After avoiding pursuing the obvious throughout my college years, I am now a self-taught artist/muralist, working primarily with acrylic on canvas. I have never been able to define my painting style, and find it quite entertaining that others struggle to do so as well, but I like it that way because it is actually very fitting of my personality. My inspiration tends to come from my world travels, the PNW, and just bringing to life the amusing little thoughts and images that come to mind on a daily basis. Every piece of artwork is created by hand; I do not make any prints. I like to know that those who invest in my paintings can take pride in knowing that they own a truly original
piece of artwork.

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.

Featured Artist Julie Gautier-Downes

In any given landscape there are moments, which tell a story about a place and the people that dwell there. In a metropolis or a ghost town these moments of loneliness and abandonment that can be looked over or forgotten. It is in these spaces that there is an opportunity to see and understand the world in a different way. By exploring, collecting and photographing the world as an archaeologist or detective gives intensity to the seemingly banal and ordinary.

The absence of the human figure in the work provides a space for the viewer to project themselves into the desolate and abandoned environments that are captured. By pairing photographs of these deserted and abandoned environments with found personal items it provides fertile ground for narratives to emerge. The items collected are items one might find in a family album or desk drawer and provides a strong connection to the missing figure.

The types of spaces that are captured range greatly from the haunted skeletal frame of a failed dream house to a forgotten city by a man made sea that has a vibrant past. The ghostly representation of the locations exposes moments of quietness, sadness, and abandonment. In some cases these places are desolate due to a tragedy or economic downturn and the images and collected items speak to the way in which it happened.

It is the universality of loss that allows the viewer to find the beauty in these abandoned spaces and objects. With the hope that it enlightens them to see how sublime life is and how connected we are to each other.

Glen’s photographic subjects are as varied as his interests – music, people, architecture, windows, doors, water, patterns, reflections and anything strange. Many of his images have been used as CD album art.

Each photograph has been cropped, color corrected and sharpened, none have been “artistically” enhanced with filters. What you see is how the original image appeared. Any “effects” are mostly the result of In-the-Camera Manipulation.

Scott McDougall is an illustrator, artist and rock-poster collector who grew up in northern and central California in the sixties. He lived in Seattle on Phinney Ridge for more than 30 years and only recently moved back to California. Scott has created artwork for mare than 50 CD and LP covers for the Grateful Dead, as well as posters for Hempfest, EMP and H.O.R.D.E. Festival; covers for The Rocket Magazine and Guitar Player; and illustrations for Rolling Stone.

I have spent many years figuring out who I am as a photographer, but it has all come back to where my heart belongs. Capturing the spirit of the animals we love so dearly brings me the greatest happiness. I believe that a portrait can be not only a way to document the memory of those we love, but more importantly, a piece of artwork that we cherish for the rest of our lives.”

Featured artist: Veronica Mortellaro

“Sentient” brings together the newest body of work from Veronica Mortellaro. Using ink and watercolor, Veronica explores what it means to be fully human. Each of her works feels familiar and intimate, haunting yet sensual. Veronica’s medium forces serendipitous moments, casting figures that represent both strength and frailty.

Veronica grew up in Fort Collins, earning her BFA at Colorado State University. Prior to relocating to Seattle, she developed chronic pain that would change her life. The figures in her work represent not only the sorrow and fear she has experienced, but the sensuality, power, and human connection that emerged.

Also featuring live music by Velvet Doll and Clarkia Cobb. Performances from 7:30 – 9:30pm

Featured Artist: Taylor Hammes

Taylor Brienne Hammes is a queer Seattle-based art maker, student and teacher. In 2013 Taylor received her A.F.A in Visual Arts in Minneapolis, and will continue her B.F.A this coming fall at the University of Washington. Taylor has been an educator with Seattle ReCreative since June 2016. She has worked with art and environmental non-profits for four years now; including, Art Heals Minnesota, Sunny Day Earth Solutions, and Err: Minneapolis. Her favorite part about being an artist is making art accessible for others to enjoy as a healing process.

Taylor is inspired by the resilient female energy that surrounds her. She uses minimalistic lines to create surreal-like environments with graphite and paper; and, the occasional use of photography, digital art, watercolor, and recycled 3D forms.
