Autumn Tranquilino is a self-taught artist living in Seattle, Washington.  She has been drawn to art her whole life.  She paints in acrylic, oil, watercolor and ink. Autumn is mostly inspired by painting people and nature.  She incorporates myth, folk lore and fantasy into her work.  Her paintings capture an almost surreal state and at times look more life like and real than the actual subjects and photographs that inspire her work.  She enjoys studying different cultures and people from all walks of life and captures this in her work.

Featured Artist: Ryan Synovec

Ryan Synovec is an award winning fine art photographer from Seattle, via Chicago and Minnesota. Since 2007 he has been shooting exclusively with a Holga medium format plastic camera. Ryan’s projects Ethereal, Faraway, and Chicago-in Contrast, were all shot with a Holga and infrared film, a combination used by a very limited group of photographers. This technique can be extremely challenging, but when successful, the result is a uniquely beautiful, dreamlike image.

Ryan has emerged as one of the leading photographers using this technique. His Holga infrared images have been published multiple times in B&W Magazine. Several images appear in the 2ndedition of Michelle Bates book “Plastic Cameras, Toying with Creativity”. Ryan’s work has been shown in galleries and exhibitions throughout the country.

Featured Artists: Paul Komada, Paul Louis Nelson

SAD Gallery is thrilled to announce our third exhibition, PAULS WORK, featuring Seattle-based artists Paul Komada and Paul Louis Nelson. Trained in the tradition of abstract painting, Komada has expanded into areas of sculpture, installation, and performance. On view for this exhibition, Komada’s elegant, soft-sculptural forms use techniques of abstraction and knit-work, walking the line between craft and high-art. Nelson’s work performs a similar balancing act. At once sincere and tongue-in-cheek, his pieces pull heavily from kitsch and craft while maintaining the meticulous presentation and display modes of contemporary art. Additionally, Nelson’s background in photography remains evident in his focus on the recording and monumentalizing of time.

Puzzle pieces, stitching, layers of paint, each piece in PAULS WORK is a testament to hours spent, repeated motions, decisions made. Time-in and technique are laid bare for scrutiny. Using modes of production accessible to most, Komada and Nelson utilize, if not the ready-made, the ready-to-be-made in their respective practices. The mystery of production moves away from the ‘how’ into the realm of ‘why’, and ‘to what end.’ Through labor and deft handicraft Komada and Nelson elevate their materials, asking questions about worth, time, and what it means to work.

OPENING: Sep. 9, 7-10PM

Featured Artist: Kathleen Green – Arbor Knits | www.arborknits.com
“Growing up in Oregon, I had a wall-sized, tree photo mural in my bedroom. I knew every inch of it before I left for college. As a photo editor and photographer for most of my adult years, I sought out trees as subjects, always thinking of new ways to capture their beauty. Arbor Knits “grew” from my love of nature, trees, and big warm sweaters.
Trees tell beautiful stories of growth, strength, and support. By salvaging branches and treasure hunting for old sweaters, I can give a new life to both. I’m a reuse kind of gal.
I currently reside in Seattle with two cats, one dog, one husband and one almost teenage daughter.”

Opening Reception: UNDERPINNIGS
Rachel Lee

“Climate change” calls to mind images of increasingly severe wildfires and droughts and stranded polar bears, but there are devastating changes taking place beneath the surface of the seas due to ocean acidification (sometimes referred to as “global warming’s evil twin” in the media), the mostly invisible and cataclysmic effects of which will reverberate through marine ecosystems as well as human communities worldwide.

In this debut show, Rachel Lee, an interdisciplinary artist with a keen interest in the sciences as well as contemporary drawing and painting, visually highlights recent findings about the many ocean species being impacted by the changing ocean chemistry, from familiar oysters and corals, to the fascinating and alien world of the microscopic zooplankton that line the foundation of ocean food webs.

Opening reception features live performance by The Black Chevys.

Leo Shallat Solo

Leo Shallat is a calligraphy artist born and raised in Seattle. He works as a painter, illustrator, and muralist. “Expansions” builds upon Shallat’s foundation of calligraphy and technical line-work by moving into three-dimensional imagery. Inspired by motion, this new body of work uses color, texture, and space to express the intangible flow of energy the artist regards as a constant in the world.

Featured Artist: Ruthie V

Buddhist philosophies of emptiness and the self fuel this collaboration between Butoh dancer Kaoru Okumura and painter Ruthie V. in her new series “Neither Will This Stay.”

Expressing the enormity of immediate emotions, larger-than-life-size figures transition through solidity to emptiness; move into and out of existence. The emptiness within and around the figures becomes just as much the subject as the body itself. From turbulence to tranquility, these renderings articulate the artist’s experiences of vitality, loss, and acceptance.

Stephanie Morales

I am a homegrown, Seattle born and based artist. Creating art from a young age, I recently returned to my passion through acrylic and pencil mediums nearly two years ago. Both my travels throughout the US and Europe influence my work, much of which is focused on femininity, thought, self-reflection, and beauty. My multicultural background, education in social justice, and varied life experiences contribute greatly to subject of my personal work. My portrait work, both personal and celebrity icon, and a study in line and figure have also recently been fairly popular. One artist I admire and relate to is Frida Khalo. Her work is vulnerable, narrative and highly reflective and I have found my work on some occasions unintentionally modeled after hers.

I make art to highlight the elements of life I value most. It’s a way of reminiscing, finding meaning, and giving these little moments and ideas the attention and admiration they’re worth. As humans, we are consistently submerged in these incredibly complex, intricate, sophisticated environments of contextual and relational oddities and delights- and it seems sometimes the chaos robs us of truly savoring the occasions, emotions, and people that genuinely charm us. Creating art, to me, is about hunting these moments, fascinations, and thoughts down, capturing them, and granting them some form of immortality.

Featured Artist: Margarita Jordache

I paint urban landscapes from direct observation, from the photographs I take from the sites, and memory. I believe urban environments are reflecting the culture of its inhabitants and it differs so drastically from place to place. I tend to pick a scenery that is reminiscent of my Eastern European background and it might be my way of dealing with dislocation and finding a sense of a new place. But I hope that you will enjoy the paintings for your own reasons.

Featured Artist:  Alexander Keyes

Through cataloging and organizing my private domestic space, ak industries lays bare my hopes and dreams, my self-doubt and empowered motivation, and my endeavors to make it as an artist. During a year away from home as artist-in-residence, this work charts the doodles and models that develop out of living alone in an unfamiliar place. As I sit in my little apartment, slightly lonely and bored, I have nothing to occupy my down time but organize my pantry and clean out my fridge. I display my constant struggle to do better and strive for more by hand writing motivations on a collection of found landscape photos. I dream of starting my own corporation and moving out of poverty by using the skills I have gained constructing custom cabinets. Living in a dump of a place, I dream of the modernist homes that I grew to love in school and start to reproduce them from various cereal, beer, and pizza packaging. The particulars of my day-to-day life begin to consume me and I let that minutiae become a portrait of my domestic self.

Featured Artists: Jonathan “Wakuda” Fischer & Eva Yuewang

Eva Yuewang: I have many fetching images coming from my head, and I don’t want to just see the pictures myself, so I attempt to express them in the paintings on my own to share. This is my motive to doing my art.

My theme is surreal. I am obsessed with the kind of feeling it evokes. It looks realistic but more imaginative than the real life, catching the subtle waves of humanity. The characters in my paintings have some paradoxically personality; be it sensitive yet indifferent, innocent yet ruthless, attractive yet unconfident.

Most of the influence in my art can be found in my cultural background. I grew up in China, and thus my outlook of world and its value is all informed by my country. Having spent time in the United States, I now see certain differences between the East and West. This is a phenomenon that I think it is very interesting and influential, and it will be reflected in my art.

Painting

Paul Richards, born in Seattle, lived on/in Phinney Ridge and Greenwood since 1968, that panoramic picture at the PNA of the school class of JB Allen 1976, I’m in it, second white blur left of the center door.   I was never the rich kid so I always had to figure out how to do something with what I had, which is reflected in the 99% recycled materials I use for my art projects.  I like to make people think with my art and add a level of difficulty so you can’t just glance at a painting, you have to move around it a bit.   I also build bicycles and rebuild furniture.

Graduated from the graphic arts class at the DOD Mapping School of Ft Belvoir Virginia.

Mike Larsen can describe that emotion.  Armed 24/7 with his Nikon D7100, nature and wildlife is his passion. He wakes with the sunrise, drives in the twilight, and patiently waits for the perfect shot.

Featured Artist: Jessica Byrd

Jessica Byrd is an artist residing in Greenwood, Seattle. She is inspired by community-driven subjects in her artistic practice, which have ranged from painting live at homeless dinners to painting murals on the boarded up windows after the Greenwood explosion. Her latest series has included working with real people in the Seattle community who have willingly come forward to not only model for a portrait, but to answer deep personal questions that she uses to inform each piece. Looking beyond depicting a likeness of the individual, she looks to extract what she believes to be the most real part of them. This exploration of “what makes us human” has been a question that has inspired larger public works in the Seattle community.

Urban Hands: 8420 Greenwood Ave N

Featured Artist: Aleksey K. Aluf

Aleksey Aluf was born in Kharkov, Ukraine in 1981. At age 12 he moved to Edmonds, Washington. This challenging time of change, transition and travel has had a strong influence on the artist.   Aleksey attended Virginia Commonwealth U in Richmond and got his BFA in art education in 2004. Since then he has been working as an art teacher for Edmonds school district. He is passionate about introducing and teaching art to young people, and hopes to grow and mature in his teaching career.  Along with teaching Aleksey spent many hours working with acrylics and mixed media at Edmonds Community College.

Some of the concepts that influence my paintings are: nature and environment, man and destruction of the ecosystems, travel through space and time, butterfly effect and, everyday human desires. I paint things the way I feel them in the physical and metaphysical world. The painting process usually starts with an expressive mood. Large brushstrokes are applied and the work progresses rather quickly. These earlier stages of my paintings are most intuitive and subconscious, almost coming from a dream or a vision.  The painting then takes a more conceptual turn and eventually narrates multiple themes and ideas to the viewer. Being an artist means I am always changing, and although I find this very challenging and unpredictable, it is also most enjoyable.

Featured Artist: Courtney Martin

I have been shooting around the Seattle area for over 8 years. With a fine art background, I want to bring another level to my Portrait photography: A story. My goal is to perfect each and every shoot into a story the viewer can relate to. Working closely with my team, models, hair and makeup artists, stylists and assistants, I ensure continuity between every element, and I edit the images in a near obsessive way. I enjoy connecting with the creative world, and pushing conceptual boundaries. I have been featured in Dark Beauty Magazine, Avari Magazine, Numinous Magazine, and Obscurae Magazine, featuring work from local designers. Collaborating with creative souls around me is my passion.

Music Performance: The Hawkins-Walters Duo (cello and piano) celebrate the release of their new full length album “Tales of Woe” (available on CDBaby.com and all streaming platforms) featuring works by Shostakovich, Liszt, Schubert, and Seattle composer Adam Haws.

Featured Artist: David Wright

Born deaf in a hearing family, I became visually communicative, to show people what I see in the world, in my mind’s explorations. My ability to see and understand visual detail is enhanced because of this. Art, being a major mode of my communicating with the world is why I have done urban design planning and landscape architecture for almost my entire career.

I am a geology nut, citizen scientist, anthropologist, astronomer, and love archaeology. It’s much easier to show complex geomorphological processes (how the earth is shaped) graphically through art and design than by writing. I also love reading maps, and making them both professionally and as a hobby.

I love to look at beautiful things. I love to explore intricate details. I love artworks which inspire my imagination and lead my mind down paths of creative thought. When I create art, I strive to design works that bring wonder and amazement to all viewers. I like to design around themes which reflect the natural world and which also reach toward the land of dreams. I enjoy working in the medium of laser cut wood because it emphasizes the qualities of the natural material and allows for a unique and complex interplay of positive and negative space in the building of intriguing imagery.

Featured Artist: Megan Noel Smith

Megan Noel is a painter, illustrator, textile and mixed media artist working in the Northwest. For many years she has been known for her beadwork, but in recent years has chosen to focus more on her equally intricate painting and illustrations.

Her favorite media are watercolor and pen and ink. Her paintings and illustrations range from dreamy and surreal to delicate and whimsical. She seeks not to create masterpieces to grace the walls of museums, but rather to create smaller more intimate works to fit into the lives of readers and writers, poets and dreamers, mother, fathers, and everyday folk.

Featured Artist: Mallory Milke

I’ve been painting ever since I was a kid, but never really thought of doing it as anything more than a hobby. As I filled up the walls of my home with my own art, I had so many of my friends and family asking for their own that I decided I might as well go for it and see where it takes me. Three years later, tons of empty paint tubes and I’m here, working for myself and loving every minute of it. I get to stay home with my son and create fun, colorful paintings that I love.

I’m inspired by things I love, like mischievous creatures, Pretty Dark things and bright whimsy colors. I do a variety of styles but love bright colors and animals the most,adding a slight whimsical feeling to owls, Lions, Lemurs and any other creature that tickles my fancy.

Featured Artist: Joshua Boulet

Featured Artist: Richard Jahn

I am a painter and though I don’t try to paint like any other artist you could probably put me in a category similar to Vincent Van Gogh, at least in attitude towards painting.
I like to experiment with lots of different artistic ideas but overall I want my art to express who I am as a person and have a certain honesty about them that comes from doing my best as it comes from my heart and hand, as opposed to doing something that I was taught – regardless of subject matter. Most of my paintings are local recognizable scenes.

Featured Artists Saturday: 3 Play Ricochet, a bluegrass band

3 Play Ricochet is a bluegrass band that knows no boundaries, or perhaps
simply respects no boundaries. They happily spill over into country blues,
ragtime, and Appalachian old-time music. They gleefully steal from the
Beatles, Joe Cocker, Dave Brubeck, and Johnny Mercer right along with Doc
Watson, Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, and the Carter Family.  They call it “String
Band Americana – Bluegrass and Beyond.”

The band members are Peter Langston, Tina Webster, Ron Haas, and Bonya
McGarrity.

Band leader Peter Langston has been playing bluegrass music for more than
50 years, starting in New York City’s Greenwich Village in the late 50s, then
in Portland Oregon in the early 70s, and now in Seattle. Together Peter,
Tina, Ron and Bonya represent the 4 geographical corners of America and they
call on their differing backgrounds to make exciting, multi-faceted music that
pleases the mind as well as the soul!

After spending 18 years as a Washington State Representative I wondered, “Is there life after the Legislature?” Indeed there is for me, and it is the life of an artist.

Being a Northwest native surrounded by mountains, lakes, rivers and meadows not to mention awe inspiring sunsets, it was destined that I was bound to turn to Mother Nature for artistic inspiration. Although I have dabbled in still life paintings and portraits, landscape paintings feed my soul like nothing else.

My starting point is usually a photo that I or a friend or family member have taken. Translating that into a painting is an adventure of discovery.  In looking deeply at the photo I see patterns and colors that become the focus of my work.

Featured Artist: Markel Uriu
Mixed Media

Markel Uriu blends various mediums and practices to create abstract narratives. It is ephemeral with an emphasis on process, inevitably placing it within the context of time. Pieces change through personal manipulation as well as natural shift and decay. Change shows the natural life cycle, the birth and deterioration of objects meant to comfort, fixate on, or defend. Blankets, barriers, and pelts have as much a cycle within the piece as in the botanical sources. Drawing on myths, tropes, and classical narratives, she uses repetitive tasks that speak to the mythical tasks of steadfastness and endurance, but also more essential aspects of living: heartbeats, blood flow, and breath.

Featured Artist: Simon Campbell

I first adopted photography as my creative outlet of choice. I’ve been taking photographs for 20 years, since receiving a cheap 35mm point and shoot camera from my parents in my early teens. Ever since then I have been developing an eye for artistic things: color, light, balance, composition etc. Other than art classes at senior school in my native England, I didn’t pick up the paintbrush until 2005, into my mid-twenties. Already self-taught in photographic composition, a steady stream of collages, mixed media pieces, and mostly paintings emerged. Evolving into a loose expressive style that still remains varied.

My process involves many layers. I let my paintings evolve somewhat naturally, the idea I have in my head when I begin is sometimes very different to the finished piece. I build my layers with colors and sometime surprise myself by putting down a layer not knowing that it will be the final touch and the painting will be deemed “done!”

Photography

I am a graphic designer, a photographer, a musician and a collector living in the Phinney/Greenwood community. Photos of a band or performer can be a visual record of their stage presence or a captured moment, one that revels their energy or insights to their personality.

These photographs are from some of the many different and varied concerts I’ve attended; some from stage access, some taken from the audience, some of the audience. Musicians and bands, such as, Jake Shimabukuro, Taj Mahal, The Black Angels and Jimmy Cliff have all provided me an opportunity to capture a unique moment of their performances.

As a long time resident of the Phinney/Greenwood area and a supporter of the Phinney Neighborhood Association, I will be donating $10 to the PNA for each photo sold during this exhibit.

Featured Artist: Tara McDermott

The subject matter of my work stems from a love and obsession with the natural world. It is a place I find comfort and where my imagination runs wild. I begin by photographing the world around me. From this raw material, I overlap layers of film then scan them together. The process results in joining fragments of places that couldn’t possible exist together. Encaustic wax adds a layer of texture and helps create the feeling of an ethereal dreamscape, or a portal into another realm.

Kolab Studio/ Gallery, formerly P.D.C., is a group of local artists/designers that reside in the north west.

The Name Kolab comes from the Prefix Ko meaning little or small and Lab short from Laboratory. “Kolab” is also a nickname for collaborative which is the theme for the gallery.

Artists have the chance to work together on paintings, projects and special events for the gallery space.

Kolab Gallery is proud to introduce new artist Megan Noel Smith.

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Megan Noel is a painter, illustrator, textile and mixed media artist working in the Northwest. For many years she has been known for her beadwork, but in recent years has chosen to focus more on her equally intricate painting and illustrations.

Her favorite media are watercolor and pen and ink. Her paintings and illustrations range from dreamy and surreal to delicate and whimsical. She seeks not to create masterpieces to grace the walls of museums, but rather to create smaller more intimate works to fit into the lives of readers and writers, poets and dreamers, mother, fathers, and everyday folk.

Megan has been creating, initially with beads and later with other media, since her early days, growing up on a sheep farm on Vashon Island, and surrounded by weaving, spinning, dyeing, felting, and a appreciation and respect for all forms of textile arts. Megan discovered her passion and gift for beading in 1990 and began teaching several years later. She has developed her own style of bead embroidery. Her work includes beaded dolls, evening purses, amulet purses, brooches, and buttons. She also works with fabric and fibers to create wearable works of art, each utterly one of a kind.

While these creative interests may seem far reaching, there is a thread of connection that weaves through them all, her own unique style that is immediately recognizable in her works, from watercolor to elaborate hand knitted shawls. In a time when many artist’s works seem to “all look the same”, Megan’s work stands out as unique.

Megan has been teaching beadwork and drawing classes over the last 15 years and is currently considering expanding her offerings.

Megan has shown her artwork locally and nationally in various galleries and other venues, including: Mesolini & Amici , Turtle Press, The Artists Tree, BKB & Company, The Artifactory, Gallery Ten, The International Bead and Button Show, the National Button Convention, North Seattle Community College and Beads and Beyond.

Featured Artists: Georgetown Atelier Student Exhibition

Georgetown Atelier presents the student work of the full-time atelier. By teaching the foundations of classical art as the building blocks for professional artists, this program is designed to develop visually inventive gallery and industry artists alike.

The work represents the three tiered curriculum taught at Georgetown Atelier—Tier I: Drawing Foundations, Tier II: Painting Foundation with optional Digital Painting, and Tier III: Advanced Painting and Thesis Projects. Throughout the program, the students are training their eye in order to see and capture the subtleties of what they are observing. As they work towards becoming more accurate in their observations, they are creating a visual library from which they can work constructively and inventively. The program lays the foundations of observational and constructive methods from which the students are then able to build upon to achieve their individual goals.

Opening reception features tunes by Shane Degan

CLOSING RECEPTION for Nikki Frumkin

Nikki Frumkin is an artist, teacher and alpinist living in Seattle, Washington. Her work is inspired by time spent hiking, climbing and mountaineering in the great pacific northwest. She is interested in the patterns in nature she finds as she explores.

Nikki believes that sharing stories makes the world a better and more interconnected place. Her work is driven by a desire to share the visual stories she collects as she adventures. As she goes, she bring her sketchbook and watercolors. Sometimes this is serene; sometimes it is bitterly cold.

Nikki Frumkin’s work thrives on the conflict between the wild wonder of the outdoors and the challenges that go with it. Although it is joyful, hiking can be very lonely as well, mountaineering more so. Mountaineering requires a person to spend long periods of time separated from their team by a rope for safety, often in the dark and alone in their thoughts. These activities are both incredibly difficult and supremely rewarding. Representing these ideas on paper through art gives them meaning.

By invoking this contrast in her work, Nikki aims to inspire wonder for the outdoors. In this way, the viewer will be able to discover what they already know about who they are and how they belong to the wild.

Featured Artist: Rick Williams

Rick “RT” Williams is a seventh generation Nitinaht carver of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations. He is not just a woodcarver, but a community leader. In 2010, Rick’s brother, John T Williams was shot 4 times and killed by a Seattle Police officer. John Williams was also a master woodcarver. John was crossing the street, committing no crime, and was shot in the back only 4.7 seconds after the officer left his car. John’s murder ignited outrage amongst the community towards the Police Department. When no charges were brought against the officer, Rick and others feared that some protests might become violent. Rick responded to the heinous act by bringing the community together in honoring John by hand carving and raising a 34-foot memorial totem in Seattle Center. The totem stands to honor John’s art, his legacy and to symbolize the community’s response. Rick continues to carve every day and teaches calm, peace, and honor.

The works here on display are all inspired by the Greenwood gas explosion of 2016 and the community’s work of repair and relief.  She wanted her work to remind viewers both the destruction and loss to the neighborhood and the beauty that remained and could be seen in the community’s coming together after the incident.  Many in the neighborhood will remember that in the days following the blast one of the most visible signs of the explosion was the shattered windows of the impacted residences and business and broken glass that covered streets and sidewalks.  For this show Jesse choose to work exclusively with or directly on glass in recognition of the unique role glass played in how this disaster impacted her neighborhood.  All proceeds for this show will go to fund the Greenwood Disaster Relief Fund at the Phinney Neighborhood Association.

Gegenheimer’s colorful paintings and installations border on the abstract, while still referencing landscape, architecture, and the allure of the unknown. Lohmann’s soft-hard forms hang, curl, lean and slump in place.

Together, Gegenheimer’s and Lohmann’s works beg to be touched, further explored, and traced back to their liquid origins. Now crystallized, arrested, dry paint and plaster form richly-textured pieces which both stand alone and use the exhibition space as their substrate

Originally from Birmingham, England, I moved to the states in 2004 – after meeting an American girl on a bus in Southern India in 2002. Travel Photography has remained a creative spark, and has provided me with much inspiration. Along with nature documentaries which I have been fascinated by since the days I’d watch them with my Dad as a youngster. I think this reflects in my work! I’ve seen many parts of India, S.E. Asia, Southern Africa and Brazil. These days I’m much more settled, enjoying the gem of the Pacific NW and about to start a family.

Featured Artist #2: Cecile Disenhouse
Watercolor

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.

My paintings can be seen at www.jettes.org

Featured Artist #1: Julia Hohlbein Vo

Julia is one of the most talented artists we have ever come across. Her portraits capture her subject with perfection. She will be offering original pieces, as well as custom pieces done per customer request. Julia’s ancestor, Hans Holbein the younger, was a renaissance master who did custom portraits for the likes of King Henry VIII! Once you see her work in person you will have no doubt that she is truly a master! Her art pieces are hard to believe and if you order one of them you will cherish it for a lifetime!

Featured Artist #2: Rick Williams

Rick “RT” Williams is a seventh generation Nitinaht carver of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations. He is not just a woodcarver, but a community leader. In 2010, Rick’s brother, John T Williams was shot 4 times and killed by a Seattle Police officer. 50 year old John Williams was also a master woodcarver. John was crossing the street, committing no crime, and was shot in the back only 4.7 seconds after the officer left his car. John’s murder ignited outrage amongst the community towards the Police Department. When no charges were brought against the officer, Rick and others feared that some protests may become violent. Rick responded to the heinous act by bringing the community together as one in honoring John by hand carving and raising a 34-foot memorial totem in Seattle Center. The totem stands to honor John’s art, his legacy and to symbolize the community’s response. Rick continues to carve every day and teaches calm, peace, and honor. His positivity and wisdom make him a pleasure to be around. Each piece of his art is amazingly detailed and masterfully hand carved. ​

Featured Artist: Michael Ford.

As a biologist, part of my job is finding and understanding patterns in nature.  As an artist, I’m exploring using computer graphics and a commonly used open source statistical programming language (the R framework) to bring large sets of environmental data to life.  Currently, I’m focusing on using local data from the Pacific Northwest to create a visual display of days or years of wind, temperature and precipitation information, and to show the relationship between local killer whale and salmon abundance.  The goal is to create something that is both fun to look at in its own right and that also says something interesting about the underlying information.

Featured Artists: Ingrid Matthews Olson and Jon Schmidt
Paintings and sculpture

In Organic Equilibrium, the Phinney Center Gallery will showcase the work of Ingrid Matthews Olson and Jon Schmidt. Both an artist and a musician, Ingrid Matthews Olson is fascinated by the way differing wave-lengths, whether of sound or of light, combine to create feeling. Her abstract paintings explore the affective power of color while playing with the balance between the organic and the constructed. Much of Jon Schmidt’s work has gravitated in some way toward the themes of enlightenment or emergence. His work also captures his life struggles such as Missing, Beginnings, and Harmony. He captures the themes radiating from the stone, emerging from either the natural (unaltered) portions of the stone, or in the form of open arms, or faces looking upward. Come see their work through April 1.

Featured Artist: Ruty Daniels
Mixed media

Ruty Daniels is a self­-taught visual artist, whose paintings aim to create a space that is colorful, tactile and interesting; a space that breathes off to the left of routine.

Her materials are wood, acrylics and polymer paste along with various items rescued from the recycling bin. Daniels uses re­used and up­cycled materials with the purpose of creating something new and interesting where there was nothing before. Her paintings are intended to be touched, as well as viewed.

The subjects live in a world of hyper-­bright shapes and texture, which are physical manifestation of her feelings and thoughts.
