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.

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.

I am a self-taught artist who has been living in Washington since 1980. My work is about people I know and have seen, thing I have done with my family and friends and would like to do.  My brilliant colors and movement tell a story.  My faceless people has many thought of what he or she is saying or how they are feeling.  I have always enjoyed drawing and painting as a young girl and I am glad I brought it back into my adult life.

Featured Artist: Nancy Durant

I came to the Pacific Northwest 17 years ago not planning to stay long but fell in love with the area. When I’m not working, I’m out in my kayak on the sound or in one of the many local lakes as well as lakes out in the counties. I remember doing art from a very early age using pencil drawing, charcoals and watercolor painting on small scales. Two years ago, I picked up a paintbrush and began painting in acrylics. The process has been very therapeutic for me and given me a chance to center myself and find peace when I’m in front of my easel.

For the month of November we wanted YOU – our community – to be our artists of the month. We wanted to create a space where creativity and conversation could flow, and where community could be built. What happens when you bring friends and strangers together to collaborate on a piece of art? We wanted to know, so we provided canvas and paint, and the results are on our wall.

Featured Artist: Paige Madden

Paige Madden is a multi-media artist living and working in Seattle. Her performance piece, Living Statue, is hosted on sidewalks, in parks and other public areas. She brings her art straight to the public, making it free and accessible to all. The costume for her Living Statue is made to represent an anatomical human heart, composed of two halves, one red and one blue. She stands on a crate with her arms stretched out and remains still until a contribution is given in the bucket before her. Then she gives a token of gratitude, a wand adorned with a red and blue heart. Some may refer to this as a transaction, but she sees it as an interaction between two strangers, between life and art. The costume is made from found and recycled objects. As she travels she collects items and adds them to the costume. The costume will always be in progress, never to be “finished”. Paige seeks to spread love, share awareness and demonstrate that we all must give in order to receive.

Featured Artist: our very own Josiah Green

As a Seattle transplant from Denver Colorado, I work as a bartender while enjoying the PNW outdoors in my spare time, primarily by bicycle.  I’ve had an interest in art and caricature drawings from a very young age and used to spend hours designing my own cartoon stories and illustrations. Just recently, I’ve enjoyed putting together collections of animal characters influenced by the characters I’ve encountered in stories like Alice in Wonderland or simply the ones who come to drink a beer at the Flying Bike Brewery.

Featured Artist: Doug Newman is a photographer and among the creators of Free Witch Quarterly. At 8 pm. he’s going to show a 30-minute slide show of 600 of his photos set to music you will almost certainly like. The show is a work in progress, including some photos up to 15 years old and some taken as recently as two weeks ago. He calls the version he’ll show at GSTS “And These are the Days of Our Lives.”

I always take pictures in the present moment, informal portraits of the people that are a part of my life and the things I am inspired to remember. As I look over my work from the last 10, 13, 15 years I can see all the moments in the present creating this sacred document of the past. I didn’t know that Capitol Hill was gonna get torn apart, that the Cha Cha would move across town, or that The Jade Pagoda would become The Bait Shop, that my boyfriend would grow up in my photographs, that I would grow older, that my friends would move away and some pass on never to return, that bands would start, break up and new bands would start, and that couples would do the same. That my dear friend Vanessa would lose most of her belongings to a house fire and I would hold her memories in my photographs for her because her tangible ones are now gone. I didn’t know that all these 10,000 clicks in the present moment we’re creating this portrait of a community for the future that is now becoming the past. I didn’t know that I would come from Cochranton, Pennsylvania to Seattle to make this, but I did and it’s exactly what I didn’t know that I wanted to do. Love, Doug

A bit about Frida:

Her silk-screened posters have become synonymous with the vibrant music scene of the Pacific Northwest. Her nature-inspired palette compliments her distinctive Scandinavian aesthetic, in which flora and fauna are frequent subjects. She was named “Best Show Poster Artist” in 2010 by Seattle Weekly, has been featured multiple times as “Poster of the Week” in The Stranger, as well as the books of 1000 Indie Posters, Gig Posters Volume II, and Paper + Ink Workshop. Her first fully illustrated book, The Wandering Goose by Heather Earnhardt, was released in September of 2013 via Sasquatch Books/Random House. Her latest book, Have A Little Pun, has been released in 2015 via Chronicle Books.

Featured Artist: Beth Ramage and her exhibit Materia Medica 2017

My work can be described as interpretive reproductions of medicinal plant illustrations of the 15th and 16th centuries. As a modern day scientist, I love to look back to see how my predecessors made sense of the world, how they gained knowledge, and how they applied that knowledge to healing their fellow man. The herbs represented in this work were used by most people for healing,
harming, or ritual.

Embroidery and quilting are also ancient arts that were used in some form all over the world. Incorporating these elements into the illustrations brings another layer of interpretation to the importance that these plants played in everyday life. My goal is to bring the viewer from the present day to a time in history when life depended on knowledge of the natural world.

Meet the artist, buy some art, load up on your witchy goods just in time for fall!

Featured Artist: Joanne Heppert

I am a Greenwood-based artist who loves to explore. I make art about landscapes that are dear to me, expressing a sense of place through texture, color and light. I want my painting to push past the representation of a place to the feeling of a place. A sharp windswept coastline, parched bright prairies, and damp fragrant stands of trees- I draw inspiration from field sketches and original images to create my acrylic paintings, while my watercolor practice is a mix of studio and plein air creations.”

Featured Artist: Shyla Carter-Braxtan

​Urban Light Studios presents “Corvidae”, featuring the work of Shyla Carter-Braxtan.

“Corvidae” uses the crow in both a physical and symbolic form to weave narrative, stemming from Shyla’s fascination with the bird’s social behaviors, intelligence, and cultural emblem. She creates a connection between the crow and the human form, likening her sense of self to the symbol. “Corvidae” explores dream sequences, self-reflection, and inner turmoil, combining representational elements with bold, cubist forms.

Shyla is a Seattle-based artist from Spokane. She graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2015. From there, she studied under Kimberly Trowbridge in the Trowbridge Atelier at Gage Academy of Art until 2016. Presently, Shyla is a working artist at Equinox Studios in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.​

I am fascinated with how our perceptions expand and contract parallel to our interactions with our environment, culture and one another. My compositions are based on emotions, conversations and current events that are funneled through a lens of color, texture and movement.

I want to capture the movement of our past, present and the future, but it won’t stay still. That is my challenge and my inspiration.

Originally from Santa Barbara, California, I have been inspired by the vivid colors, dramatic skies and landscapes of the Pacific Northwest since 1993. Please contact me directly for artwork sales.

Featured Artist: Max Court

I am a third generation artist who paints subjective, random, colorful, chaotic, tactile and visually stimulating art. When it comes to creating art, I like to be a rebel. With that being said, I rarely use a paint brush and mostly paint on wood. As for inspiration for creation, music is my muse. Though, on rare occasions, certain situations in life inspire me.

Tracy Wallschlaeger is a Seattle artist and illustrator who works in oil and mixed media.  Her lifelong interest in nature and animals is often apparent in her work.  Warm colors and images inspired by the small Eastern Washington town where she grew up often merge with the cooler palette of her current world.   Each image is an invitation to visit a place where opposites not only attract, but thrive.  Animals co-exist with humans, albeit in unusual ways, and share each other’s story.   Her work has been described as warm and inviting, but with an underlying mystery.

Nature is all around us. We are never outside of it even though we may feel far removed from its touch. Having a background in Wildcrafting, Botanical Medicine, Fashion Design, Fiber Arts, Permaculture and Shamanic Studies has helped me understand my place in the natural world. It is through these skills that I’ve deepened my love and fascination with the green veil and striven to incorporate it into my life, my art, and my spiritual expression. Through my creations I hope to help others connect with the strong and vibrant medicine of the Earth and the nature spirits that surround us. My work includes decorative ritual tools, talismans, and empowered objects for use on altars, around the home and in sacred spaces and ceremonies. All are created in partnership with the spirits of the land.

Featured Artist: Alejandra Juliette Olivos.

My name is Alejandra Juliette Olivos, the eldest of 3, with roots extending from the PNW to Mexico. I’m an artist, daughter, dreamer, creature, thinker and siSTAR. I value love, justice, people, art, and healing. I recognize as a person that holds multiple identities (womxn, fluid, college educated, first generation, Xicana) that with the knowledge I have learned and continue to seek, that my entire being is political. I am in a constant journey of unlearning, uncovering, reflecting, thinking and growing as my consciousness continues to reroot. In my art I acknowledge the beauty that the earth has allowed us to experience, and remember that we all depend on one another to survive. Through bright colors and bold lines I ask the person that is entering my world(s) to keep in mind that they will experience the pieces differently, through my stream of consciousness for each art piece I recognize that each one of us has different lived experiences and comes from different places. I am in the process of undoing how trauma through colonialism and my lived experiences have impacted my mind, body and soul. I choose to create art because it is an extension of my being, and survival.

Derek Erdman loves Triscuits, Haribo Bears, hiring couples to impersonate him at his gallery shows, psychic hotlines, the Misfits, and playing loud animal noises out the windows of his apartment to see how people react. He once sold dozens of signs from condos and donated all the proceeds to a women’s shelter called Mary’s Place. Most of all, Erdman loves to paint–he is probably painting you right now. Also, he is soon leaving town, and this will be one of his last shows as a resident of Seattle–crack open a box of Triscuits and get over here.

Collaborative art presented by The Art of Alzheimer’s, in association with Seniors Creating Art

The prevailing narrative around the issue of Alzheimer’s and dementia tends to be one of fear and loss—people with dementia thought of as empty shells where someone used to be.

These 16 murals of artwork by nearly 200 people living with dementia and memory loss tell a different story—one of hope, connection, purpose and courage. One look and you immediately realize—they are definitely Still Here, living with dignity, creativity and joy.

Featured Artist: Meggi MacKenzie, Plein Aire Artist

I recently returned to Seattle from Santa Barbara, CA as I was born & raised here and 3 of my 4 daughters & 5 grandchildren live here. My art experience began in my early formative years:  I would lay on the living room floor in front of the picture window of my neighbor, coloring in my Betty Grable crayon book. I moved to Santa Barbara in 1985 and took advantage of free art lessons by accomplished local artists. I joined a pleine aire art group,   S-C-A-P-E, Southern California Artists Painting for the Environment. I was Paint-Out Chair, organizing monthly paint outs in the local areas of Santa Barbara County 11 months of the year. Then I was invited to join the Board of Directors and voted President for 4 terms of 2 years. I continued on the Board until a few years ago. I am now interested in painting with local artists in the environment

Featuerd Artist: Lindsey Schoeneman

Lindsey’s work explores the reflective metaphors exchanged between psychological spaces and the external natural world. She believes in the experience of aliveness as landscape, as weather, as moments of the moon, as wakeful and unconscious, and as dynamic encounters with paradox. Her work is an effort to illuminate the myste­rious, the nuanced, the nebulous, the intangible—the living of a life that asks us to embody the complexity of existence, remaining open to what we do not know and what we cannot hold onto.

BARB GIPPLE is a Seattle artist who draws and paints with oilsticks and graphite on paper.  She looks to urban street painting (graffiti) for inspiration – with its informality, spontaneous gesture, multi-textured surfaces and unexpected color.  Surrounded by the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, Puget Sound, rainforests and the rich countryside of the Pacific Northwest, landscape imagery is exerting a stronger presence in her artwork; her tabletop still-lives are giving way to energetic compositions of mountains, foothills and water vistas. Gipple has a BFA (PNCA, Portland, OR) and an MFA (Columbia University, NYC) in drawing and painting.

MARY POWERS gives new life to antique jewelry using pieces from the Victorian era, 1920’s beads and reworked chain.

“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.

Essie the Mermaid is a 24-year-old Seattle native and owner of Essie Mermaid Photography, a Seattle-based underwater photography business. As an accomplished scuba and apnea diver, underwater photography allows Essie to combine her passion for the environment, imagination and art, and diving into one giant amazing experience. She draws inspiration from fantasy themes to create unique and powerful images underwater.

She prides herself on helping her subjects feel comfortable in the water and has found something deeply rewarding in the process. Being in the water while having your photo taken is the closest thing in this world to magic. Every shot is a completely different take than the last and almost everything in the shot is dependent on the water – the way the light filters beneath the surface, the way that one little movement results in a dramatic change. This is what makes underwater photography such a rewarding and challenging endeavor.

Oil paintings & pin-ups

I was born and raised in Newport News, VA and moved to Seattle in 2004. Art and drawing have always been an interest of mine from an early age. Having dabbled with painting over the years, I have grown a passion for oil painting. I use my own photography for my reference. I also like to paint a still life occasionally, though mostly for study. I like to paint figurative art that is simple, yet complicated, and like life-a bit surreal.

Featured Artist: Amelia McGee

As a former editor, I find the concept of editing to be a universal framework. Realizing that art too can be iterative, especially when applied to collage, was liberating, allowing me to enjoy the process of making without worrying about the end product. Nothing in my creative process is wasted—castoffs make fodder for other projects.

Subject-wise, I am inspired by the imperfect geometry of nature. In the repetition of an organic pattern, there is a wide range of extrapolation on any shape, yet all hang together in one gorgeous composition. This dovetails with my love for abstract art, with its paradoxical confined wildness, organized into something that makes you instinctively feel right. Like nature, abstract art can be wild and uneven, yet wholly cohesive.

Ken’s will have their usual array of tasty grab and go food options available.

Portrait of Barba family

Featured Artist: Julia Tatiya

My artwork contrasts the materiality of feminine craft with more masculine digital/electrical cabling and bare screws, creating a peculiarity to these fun pieces, that makes them contest gender norms. For those that know the crafts of knitting and crocheting, the textured patterns in many of these pieces will be familiar. Growing up having learned to knit and crochet from my mother, the use of such forms in my work is deeply personal. With knitting, crocheting, weaving, and basket weaving techniques, I look to have their labor and materiality emote in my work. The cables put on display in my artwork create discourse on their utility or lack thereof, especially in the context of society keeping wires out of sight and the movement to go wireless. By mixing traditional craft with electrical cable materials, I’ve taken two contrasting forms with functions and stripped them of their function so they can be viewed formally in a beautiful and quirky way. These almost monochromatic pieces are complex yet simple and are meant to be lighthearted and playful.

In addition, Arbor Creative Media will screen a line up of free PG family-friendly films.
