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.

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
Ceramic

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.

Artist will be present 

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.”

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

Featured Artists: Anthony Zawitkowski , “LipServus” Sunny, Michael Paul Ambrose, Mikayla Fjeld, Amante De Mar, Jackie Mehtala

Anthony Zawitkowski – Anthony Zawitkowski is a visual artist and photographer born and raised in Seattle. Creativity is his greatest natural expression. His work reveals personality, openness and introspection. Anthony begins the artistic process with real life inspiration, then wraps his creative energy around the thought. His imagination brings the mundane to the abstract, ensuring no rules or limitations apply. He strives to channel expansive, free energy, giving viewers a new, cathartic perspective.

“LipServus” Sunny  – “LipServus” Sunny is inspired by the oft-transgressive power of adaptation, parody and homage. Thoughts and themes foraged from the vast junkyard of Sunny’s mind offer the audience the finest in up-cycled feelings through a personal prism of dark whimsy, known in technical circles as “Dwimsy”. Themes involve space, thresholds, love, animals, cars, and apparently, teeth.  Sunny also features unique familiarity with refractometers, and an uncommonly high surface area-to-mass ratio.

Michael Paul Ambrose – Michael Ambrose is a traveler, craftsman, and visual storyteller with his hands perpetually dirty.  He currently works in art-book making, assemblage, monotype, and alt-process photography.

Mikayla Fjeld – Growing up, art was a therapy for her and a way to express feelings and emotions she did not know how to convey. She had a rough childhood and battled addiction for many years. Now that she is sober, she has begun making art again, expressing those same emotions that any human could relate to, through surrealism and portraiture.

Featured Artist: Eric Rabena

Earth Chimes are an energetic exploration of, and reverence to, the wisdom, perfection, and impermanence of the earth and all her beauty. 

The artist, Eric Rabena, combines earth elements—remnants of trees, animal skulls and horns, and a variety of healing gems and crystals—and binds them together with hemp rope, in a fusion of classical and macramé knots.

Earth Chimes are an extension of Eric’s yoga practice. They are a thoughtful and expansive expression of Conscious Awareness. Eric sculpts pieces that honor the strength, life, and energetic potency of each element. The Earth Chimes pay respect to the healing properties of the trees, animals, and gems. The elements represent the inevitable cycle of all things manifest: creation, sustaining, and eventually, death and reabsorption back into the whole—back into the nothing that holds everything.

All my life, I’ve been captivated by water–especially the sea. These paintings are a reflection of Oceans Above and Below–aerial oceans, from above the waves, as if one were floating right over the water, and cosmic abstracts from other planets, like photography negatives of earthly oceans. 

By connecting with the cosmic and most hidden, as well as the very surface of the earth, I hope to show how connected we are with all life on the planet.

My work is abstract in nature, using color to create emotion and drama, while the titles of my work serve to focus the emotion and message. I use my background in archival documentation and social activism to fuel artwork about the issues I find most pressing. The ultimate goal of my work is to enable people to broaden their emotional perspective, allowing them to empathize with perspectives they could not previously understand.

Featured Artist: Lauren Mitchell

I aim to create art that connects with people on some level. My inspiration comes mainly from nature, wildlife, and the built environment. I often paint from photos I’ve taken during travels, with the intention to spark reminiscence of the viewer’s own experiences. My bond with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest has motivated me to create art that could connect with people the same way nature does.

Featured Artist: Margaret Fitzgerald

Margaret Fitzgerald currently resides in Seattle with her partner, Julie, and a timeshare cat, Louie, who lives on the block.  She holds a BS in Art Education from Montana State University, Billings. She has recently returned to making art after a long career in the field of education. She is growing her art practice through participation in art classes, meeting with an art coach, attending gallery talks and making art daily in her home studio

“I enjoy using acrylic paints for my work and have recently been attracted to exploring mixed media painting and abstraction.  I completely surrender to the seductive nature of paint and color. Currently, I am following an arduous yet joyful process of exploring how I can juxtapose abstract and recognizable forms in order to satisfy a curiosity about how the concrete informs the purely imagined. “

Photography

I like to make interesting images. A mentor once said all of my photographs are infused with a haunting nostalgia. I have always been attracted to exploring my cameras’ abilities to create the dreamy realities I experience in my mind. Cameras are thought of as technical, mechanical instruments, but I use them much more intuitively to capture the world around me along with the emotions I am feeling while making the images. The end result provides insight into not only me, but also my perception of the somewhat universal experience of life.

From a young age I’ve been fascinated by the natural world.  Animals of all kinds, plants, trees, rocks, snow, and ice.  And dinosaurs.  I draw inspiration from being outdoors, especially in the PNW.  Much of my work is combination of various aspects of trips I’ve taken, and on occasion with hops and beers – the celebratory drink at a campsite, a summit, or the bar with friends after a great adventure.  I hope you enjoy and come share a RaineMaker with me!

OILS BY DENNIS

I started working in 1945 and retired in 2017.  Within that time, I became a workaholic. Three months into retirement boredom set in.  After I watched this artist on TV, I decided to try oil painting, even though I haven’t had any formal training in the arts and I was partially color blind.  I completed my first painting in February 2018, since then I have painted 29 more. My friends and associates praise my work and coax me on.  I enjoy the finished work and it gives me a feeling of self-worth.  My future plans are to take a few art classes at a local community college, (it might help and it can’t do any harm).

My theme for this series is Creation & Wonder. All original concepts are ink based pointillism. This year I’ve been inspired to draw a lot of solar-based pieces with elements of natures experiences. I’ve tried to capture the geometry in our universe and the beauty of being a part of it. I’m struck with awe and wonder of our natural world and am left curious about how life has defied all odds to be what it is today. So come say hi, grab a pint, and take a look. Artist will be present. GreenwoodCollective: 8537 Greenwood Ave N A group of galleries and studios under one roof Art Up Site
