Featured Artist: Sarah Meranda

Jewelry

Sarah always knew she would play a role in the arts. After years of studying drawing, painting design, art history and printmaking she was still uncertain but knew that she was close to finding her true passion.  It was in a painting abroad program in Florence, Italy, that she discovered the fine craft of silver-smithing. The school in Italy where she met daily, Art Studio Fuji, was a school for jewelry and textile design. Many times she would forgo her painting assignments and sneak glances of the students in the jewelry and textile program knowing instantaneously that this would too be her path. The day after she returned from her trip she began researching jewelry programs in Seattle. She registered for a 3-day intensive workshop at Pratt Fine Arts, where her suspicions were confirmed; she was to be a metal artist.

There was something about the way metal and be manipulated. How something so hard could be so soft at the same time. There was a 3D quality in the work that was so appealing that she hadn’t experienced yet. It drew her back time and time again.

Fortunate to learn the rich history of Pacific Northwest jewelers, she is honored to have shared space and studied under people she has admired and holds in highest respect.   In the last 5 years she has taken classes at Pratt Fine Arts, Lotta Jansdotter’s Studio, Danaca Design and at North Seattle College receiving her jewelry/metalsmithing certificate and AFA. In the summer of 2015 she received a scholarship to Penland School of Craft to pursue enameling.

She has served as an active member of the Seattle Metals Guild and believes that the metals community is one of the most encouraging and progressive movements in the arts field. She hopes to take metalsmithing to new and exciting places using nature and everyday life to draw inspiration from.

Sarah has a studio in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle and hopes to teach someday. Discovering metal arts has helped her become the confident woman she is today and hopes to give it back to the community one day to help encourage young metalsmiths everywhere.

Featured Artist: Charity Jones

Charity Jones presents two distinctive bodies of work in this solo exhibition. Her urbanscapes exploit the relationship between natural and artificial light in largely man-made environments, depicting the quiet moments of Seattle night scenes.

Her abstract pieces spin a surreal stream-of-consciousness with woven personal symbolism, snippets of written word or song, and deliberate patterns.

Charity’s juxtaposed works expose two sides of the artist’s visual language, digging deeper into the subconscious and human emotion.

Opening reception features two live performances by singer/songwriter Annie Francoeur and Seattle-based alternative/indie band Sleep Talk.

The work presented in this show represents the artist’s deep connection with Montana’s landscape; an abstraction of plain and mountain, buttes and plateau, open prairies, dappled shadows of cloud cover and crystal clear rivers of water. All of these speak to his early and late experience and assimilate through his love of watercolor, mastering his brush.

For his first show in Seattle, Jesse Walton presents Fast Fish: a collection of sculptures and paintings made primarily with found materials.  Walton regularly seeks found materials for his practice, whether it’s scraps of redwood or decomposing logs left on Oakland curbs, cut offs from carpentry projects, or Styrofoam from decommissioned museum dioramas.  The title of the show is a play on the Fast Fish and Loose Fish code of whaling described by Herman Melville in Moby Dick.

“I. A Fast-Fish belongs to the party fast to it.
II. A Loose-Fish is fair game for anybody who can soonest catch it.”

Microscopic Photography

Through my art I want to share the experience of looking under the microscope; the vibrant color contrasts and unique patterns that can be found there.  I want to transform something that has universally negative connotations, into a work of art that can be appreciated for its abstract beauty.  I ultimately hope this might help those battling these illnesses find a renewed source of strength; a symbol of determination and even a victor’s trophy for a battle fought bravely and won.

Watercolor and ink

I am a watercolor painter living in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. I especially enjoy the watercolor medium because of its freshness and transparency.  It is perfect for capturing nature and so transportable.  Often 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 carry a small palette, a few brushes, and some small sheets of watercolor paper.  Despite the extra weight, I love to take my paints on hiking and backpacking trips in the Cascades, Olympics and Canadian Rockies.

My paintings can be seen at www.jettes.org.

Featured Artist: Kristin Alvarado

‘I love whimsy.

My art embraces the bright, the cheerful, the colorful and the iconic. I love embellishment. I love animals and flowers and pattern. I love color. And I love pop art. I love art that evokes a laugh, a smile, a gasp of delight. These elements fuel and inspire my creativity. More is more, baby.

I make my own “canvas'” out of wood; glued and nailed together. This allows me to invert my “canvas” and make it into a box to be enclosed with plexi-glass. It seems to me that whatever you display in a box becomes more precious, more mysterious, more intriguing. The added benefit is more surfaces to embellish. Art-in-a-box.

In the spirit of Andy Warhol, I begin with an existing image; most often a photograph, or found objects (ribbons, shoes, little statues or nick-knacks) and build the piece from there. Using paint, markers, paper, tape, glue, colored pencils, little mirrors, stickers and whatever other items I can get my hands on I layer and layer until it feels “done”. I never know when I begin what it will look like at completion. It’s a delight-driven flight of fancy.’

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul and paints his own nature into his pictures”

-Henry Ward Beecher

Kristin Alvarado graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.F.A in Interior Planning and Design with minors in Architecture and Art. She has worked locally for the past 20 years as an interior designer, commissioned artist, muralist and most recently a reclaimed vintage furniture vendor specializing in distressed paint finishes.

Carvings. Jerry’s love for wildlife began artistically with pencil and ink drawings.  He began carving

beautiful detailed Walking Sticks under the name of “Scare D’ Cat.  The name was

chosen due to close encounters between hikers and mountain lions.  Next he began

experimenting with full body carvings and ended up doing his personal style of Relief

Carvings.  His carvings are done totally by hand on different types of wood making each

piece an original work of art.  The finishing is subdued and transparent to enhance

without taking away from the detail of these unique life like carvings.

Kyle Krauskopf: Just the words “flying bike” evoke a curiosity and whimsy of their own, but add “brewery” and anyone’s interest would be peaked. As an artist and a beer lover, mine was; so much so that I came to imagine an entire world where bikes that fly are commonplace. With all that peddling to propel oneself through the clouds, a mighty thirst would accumulate.  And so was born The Flying Bike Aviator, an intrepid adventurer drinking his first pint after a long day whilst sidled up to the brewery in the sky.  The Aviator offers everyone a welcoming “cheers” as you enter Washington state’s first cooperative brewery.

Breia Mallett:  An avid doodler as long as I can remember, I’ve been creating cute little creatures in the form of greeting cards for the last few years.  Most of the work I do is on a small scale; the largest piece I’d painted before this mural was about 5ft by 3ft.  When Flying Bike put the call out for mural artists, I thought “Hey, why the heck not!”.  I’m glad I did!  It was such a fun experience and hopefully it makes folks smile when they see it.  The whole idea of Flying Bike was a lofty goal and I wanted to capture that in a whimsical way.  If bikes can fly, why can’t fish!?  We should all reach for our dreams and soar.

v2

Featured Artists: Isobelle Ouzman and Kindra Nikole

Kindra Nikole and Isobelle Ouzman bring the fantastical to life on a regular basis. Lifting the veil of disbelief and separating the viewer from reality, their work explores our relationship with fairy tales by spinning elaborate, otherworldly narratives. Coming together for the first time in this debut show, the two artists transform Urban Light Studios into a surreal visual playground.

Isobelle Ouzman’s work alternates between illustration and paper carving, favoring repurposed materials as a nod to her love of nature. Cutting and etching directly into discarded novels, her pieces capture stories within stories. Isobelle lightheartedly renders her dreams as intimate, personal fairy tales while encouraging the viewer to get lost in what results.

http://isobelleouzman.com/

Kindra Nikole is an interdisciplinary artist who photographs meticulously detailed, handcrafted sets drawn from her imagination. Kindra’s conceptual work depicts the natural world as intrinsically magical, her ideas stemming from a deep inner respect and adoration of the planet.

Opening reception features two live performances by Portland-based indie band Small Leaks Sink Ships and Seattle-based electronica band Dacha.

Artist: Peter Howland

Peter Howland’s love for photography was birthed around the same time

as his two daughters. And like his children, he was elated when photos

turned out well, but never quite understood why? A loving wife gave him a

‘photo adventure’ to Vietnam as a birthday present and while in Hanoi, the

‘aha’ moment occurred. Peter has been shooting ever since.

Specializing in documentary portraiture and event photography, Peter has

seen his photos grace Time Square on a few occasions while winning

Kodak’s Photo of the Day, as well as being published in various tech

magazines and the Huffington Post.

Ballard (Seattle) is home that Peter shares with his wife, Heidi, and the

above-mentioned two wonderful (most of the time) daughters, Helena and

Evie…his muses and ever-faithful photo subjects. And also Blue, their

gigantic Golden Retriever.

Inside the city of Seattle there is so much life and movement happening everywhere you look. Sometimes people don’t have the time to stop and stare and get a chance to appreciate the everyday life. With each piece of artwork I was inspired to create the colors of the city the way I see Seattle.

P.D.C. is happy to announce the addition of three new artists to the Gallery, Mallory Milke, Joshua Boulet and Melissa Crosetto.

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 u…p 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. Visit my Shop to get some of my art www.MayhemHere.etsy.com

Joshua Boulet wants to Sketch the World. When he arrived in Seattle, he sketched it, but he never quite left. “There is a lot about the Pacific Northwest I love” He says with a smile.

The Rosetta Stone series is my second series deconstructing the How-to-do-Anything Encyclopedias (circa 1961). These paper and cloth assemblages reference the making of something from nothing tradition of quilt-making. I saw the encyclopedias as a catalyst for a conversation about the loss of hand skills in contemporary life. The works form a practical blueprint for making and repairing objects – if only you could decode them

Artist: Corinna Sinclair
I work in a variety of media and my favorite is oil, pencil, pastels, and watercolors. I appreciate art in all forms, style, and media. My paintings are somewhat rustic, and each original work has its own unique character. I lean a lot on simplicity and bold color. I see hands on art just as important as art created digitally. Exotic ports of call are captured in oil. Most of my work reflects my imagination, emotion, and my personality.

Windows to Ancient Wisdom -- Bull Elephant

Artist: Jodi Gaylord, City Escapes Nature Photograpy

When you find yourself in a place where the landscape takes your breath away, and there is a fair chance that out of the quiet stillness a moose might come lumbering forth to surprise you, then you are in a place we love to be.

Wildlife delights us. Majestic animals, like the eagle and the bear, instill in us a certain reverence. Cute little animals make us want to cuddle up with the little furballs. And, if we wait patiently enough, all of them can make us laugh. When we picture these amazing creatures, though, we cannot forget another aspect of their appeal: the magnificent landscapes in which they find themselves. The natural world is bursting with an untold number of amazing scenes.

City Escapes Nature Photography sprung out of our wonder and awe at such naturallyartistic images. How could we be privy to such beauty and not want to share our excitement with others? As such, we are pleased to offer for sale limited edition prints of several wildlife and landscape photographs we have been fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time to take. Like nature itself, some are serene, some comical, and others puzzling — at least at first glance — but all reflect the art that is everywhere around us.

Jodi Gaylord is our Photographer-In-Chief (PIC), as well as our President and CEO. She is the creative talent behind the company, as well as the original inspiration for creating the company. She spends as much time as possible behind her camera, and hopes that the results of her work inspire you to embrace nature.

    Artists: Color Drop: Caroline Roosevelt and Abigail Elaine
    Caroline Roosevelt and Abigail Elaine mix playful intensity with vibrant, explosive color in this collaborative show. Both artists rely on strong lines and fluidity, shaping the canvas in exploration of the dialogues most central to their lives. For Caroline Roosevelt, these dialogues are based on the interplay of word and form. For Abigail, they revolve around a captivation with the natural world. Both work primarily with watercolor, spinning elements of wonder into each piece. Caroline Roosevelt has been painting since early childhood. Her process is quick and intuitive, often resulting from improvisation. Her pieces suggest humor, incorporating elements of surprise. Caroline’s work is informed by her synesthesia, which offers her an uncommon perspective on the relationship between senses. Abigail Elaine bases her practice on direct experience with nature, seeking to retain the childlike innocence she experiences in relation to her environment. Her newest body of work reflects her personal exploration of Pacific Northwest wildlife, using vivid colors to express the emotion and excitement she feels in the presence of her subjects.Urban Light Studios is also proud to host The Sketch Pistols, one of Seattle’s longest-running creative socialization clubs for local artists, designers, and illustrators who meet up monthly to draw and mingle in a variety of locations in and around the Puget Sound.

Artist: Leslie Ulrich
Leslie’s current series of work is entitled, Patch Worked, which is an exploration and celebration of color and pattern, created from an everyday object. Patch Worked is painted paper, cut and sewn together in interpretive and traditional patterns that hangs and undulates like quilts or blankets. She uses recycled paper bags that she can reuse and paint any color. It is a happy challenge to take an ordinary object and make it into something a little more interesting. It is a contemporary look at the traditional craft of quilt making, “making something out of nothing.”

Leslie will also be participating in Seattle ReCreative’s free Saturday Skill Share program on Saturday, July 11 at 10 am, at which time she will be leading a workshop on Sewing Paper.

Featuring watercolor paintings from Cecile Disenhouse.

Artist statement: I am a watercolor painter living in Seattle.  I expecially enjoy the watercolor medium because of its freshness and transparency.   It is perfect for capturing nature and very transportable. I have spent much of my life hiking in the wilderness and enjoy painting nature, especially on location.  I have also painted on my travels to other countries.  I expecially love plein air painting.   I carry a small palette, a few brushes, and some 7×11 sheets of watercolor paper.  Despite the extra weight, I also love to take my paints on backpacking trips.

Featuring the art of Suzan Fant, J. Gordon and Lindsey Shepherd.

Join us for Layered Forms, an exhibition featuring the work of Suzan Fant, J. Gordon, and Lindsey Shepherd in the Phinney Center Gallery. Suzan Fant’s art is an exploration of possibilities. The focus is on color and pattern, light and movement. The mixed media works of J. Gordon reflect his interest in underlying structures, systems and layers, the landscape and its representation. Lindsey focuses on contrast and simplicity in her series for this show. She draws her inspiration from the design work of ancient tribal cultures and from the design work of the Art Deco movement.

Featuring a gallery opening and book release party for cartoonist Jon Morris.

For every superhero hitting the big time with a blockbuster movie, there are countless failures, would-bes, almost-weres, also-rans, nobodies, weirdos, D-Listers, Z-listers and straight-up wackadoos in colorful spandex union suits. While the rest of the world is cheering on the Avengers and the Justice League, join a local author and several local artists in championing the superheroes whom no one remembers any more. Debuting June 2nd, 2015 from Quirk Books and written by Seattle-area cartoonist and author Jon Morris, The League of Regrettable Superheroes affectionately celebrates the lesser-known costumed crimefighters spanning seventy-five years of comic book history. Featuring 100 of the strangest superheroes ever to see print—from Captain Tootsie to Thunderbunny—The League of Regrettable Superheroes comes complete with backstories, vintage art, and colorful commentary.

Please join Urban Light Studios on Friday, June 12, from 6pm to 10pm for a gallery show of original art and prints for sale by The League of Regrettable Superheroes author Jon Morris, plus Tom Dougherty, Scott Faulkner, Justin Ison, Kim Kirsch, Gloria Reynolds, Dan Schlitzkus, and Adam Watson.
