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.

Featured artist: Jesse Walton

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.”

-Moby Dick, Herman Melville

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.

A-1 Piano: 7020 Greenwood Ave N
Jerome Stewart pursues photography featuring everyday experiences envisioned through an extraordinary viewpoint. This vision is intended to encourage pause and reflection – the photos are often not what they appear to be, but can represent what the viewer would like to see.

Jerome, a local Phinney Ridge resident, receives inspiration from his family (including artist / wife, Alice Stewart) and travel. He is a former Peace Corps volunteer, lived overseas for six years and currently travels internationally – camera in tow – four months per year.

Alice Stewart’s art reflects images in the past and present that have remained vivid in her mind. She often paints from photos taken by her husband, Jerome, as they both share so many memories from living abroad. Color is the dominant driver in her work. Life’s challenges, it’s great beauty, and the need for unspoken self expression have taken Alice down the artist’s path. Artists present + Live Music.

Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101 (above Chase Bank)
Bherd Studios and Home Suite Home (Greenwood Art Collective) have been busy tying up the phone lines and playing a game of telephone with their artists. Telephone is the visual-arts version of the telephone game: where a sentence is whispered from person to person, becoming more garbled with each repetition.

How do you play telephone with paintings? One artist creates an original work, photographs it, and sends it to the next artist who creates a piece based on the themes of the first—and so on down the line. With only the prior reference to consult, some artists remain strictly faithful to the previous piece, while others embellish and transform, altering the thread as they do. Some threads veer dramatically from their origins, while others end up uncannily similar to the first piece. In the rabbit-themed thread—the first three works pictured above—certain elements wiggle their way into the canon, while others drop out along the way. The longest thread in the exhibition is eight pieces long – does it stay intact or go sideways? Get in the whisper chain to find out.

Co-curated by John Osgood (Bherd Studios) and Solace (Home Suite Home), Telephone’s threads will be on display at both spaces, and pieces are available individually.

Participating Artists: Aaron Jasinski, Amy Huddleston, Andrea Wicklund, Augie Pagan, Carlos Aguilar, Curtis Ashby, Chris Sheridan, Crystal Barbre, Dan Voelker, Ego, Jeremy Gregory, Joe Vollan, John Osgood, Larkin Cypher, Levi Hastings, Mat Savage, Megon Shore, Parskid, Quincy Quigg, Siolo Thompson, Sam Wallis, & Tatjana Pavicevic.

In The Red Wine Bar & Cafe: 6510 Phinney Ave N
I’m sure my mother had a crush on Van Gogh – his bold colors and brush strokes, or it could have just been his red hair or maybe his desire to lend an ear. No matter her reason behind her crush, she felt I should get to know the masters and their greatest works. Growing up, I liked the soft almost ethereal quality of a Degas ballerina. I then discovered the simple brilliance of Georgia O’Keefe. In art class, I tried my best to emulate them both only to fail miserably then came to the conclusion that I would never become a great painter, not even of houses. But through my youthful angst of being a failed artist, my father bought me my first big-girl camera, an old Minolta SLT-101.

My artistic world seemed to open up. Through the lens, I created shapes, views, colors, shades that I could only dream of putting onto canvas. Instead of a brush & paint I created imaged with lens & film. I learned to manipulate scenes through the lens to create a mood similar to my painting idols. I couldn’t have been happier. Or so I thought.

My artistic vision opened up even further with the advent of digital cameras and computer art programs. Not having the confinements of film, I could shoot, examine and reshoot as needed to capture an image in camera to match the image on the screen. No longer was I in the darkroom cropping, cutting, shading for hours on end. At the computer I am able to adjust a setting then quickly readjust if needed.

I look forward in anticipation to new discoveries in both technology and vision while continuing to look back into the framework of the great masters who inspired a young girl and a mother who introduced me to them.

March_Ludlow

Ludlow: 7315 Greenwood Ave N
The human face has always been a constant source of inspiration to me.  Just a pretty face is not what makes me want to paint.  I am fascinated by the cultural, emotional or the unusual in people and what they can offer.  It is my goal to reveal more than just what you see on the surface.

After painting people for so many years I have always viewed my subject as a painting within a painting.  The skin, eyes and expression are truly a window to the soul and I am very conscious of how I portray that.  I have realized that as people we are in a constant state of transformation in our lives and I felt it important to make that a vital element in my work. The story I tell is about change, growth or even decay, depending on how you look at it.

The expression is my first priority when I approach a painting.  Whether it is a calm, intense gaze or an emotional outburst, I cannot have the traditional posture.  I must have life being revealed.  The end result is bold, and it all must work together beautifully.

My style of painting has loosened considerably over the years and is currently very drippy with many layers of thin acrylic paint.  There is an element of losing control, allowing the paint and color to create surprises and often the result is incredible.  To further intensify the image I add layers of textile patterns across the skin.  These layers are blended into the skin as well as dimensional by cutting shapes out of additional paper and working into the portrait.

The why, what, or how I achieve what I do is still somewhat of a mystery to me.  Letting go of control in my painting has proved successful though painful at times.  I know I have produced something really good when I feel an incredible thrill of feeling something emotional, beautiful and original and not understanding how I produced it.  When the viewer can experience a fraction of this feeling that I do, then the success is a feeling that is impossible to describe and the satisfaction is amazing.

Makeda Coffee: 153 N 78th Street
Featuring Jen Grabarczyk: Her work functions as actions of bearing witness – where consciousness, memory, narrative and time are processed through a choreographed integration of cerebral representations and bodily movement. The works included in this little show fall within those parameters, yet more specifically are visual studies in structure and containment, suspension and fusion.

Plus, Live music by Lindee Hoshikawa, a Jazz/Blues/Folk based singer-songwriter. Artists present.

Phinney Neighborhood Gallery: 6532 Greenwood Ave N
EDGES: Recent work by artists Tamara Stephas and Kristen Scott that looks at the boundary between nature and the built environment.

Tamara Stephas explores the relationship between humans and nature in an era of rapid environmental change. Her new landscape paintings pay homage to the power and beauty of the Pacific Coast, with a nod to the romantic imagination of the era of manifest destiny.

As an architect and artist, Kristen Scott is drawn to edges – the line of how a building meets the sky and the ground, the shadow pattern on a wall, the framed view through a window that separates inside and out. Working in watercolor and often plein-air, she describes the unique qualities of a place, by exploring line, shape and the space between. Opening Reception: Join us for an opening reception on Friday, March 8 from 7-9 pm. Dates of Show: February 27 to March 29. Artists present.

Featuring Maggie Sharar: Maggie’s creative journey began long ago in the land of sand and sun. Florida. In 2010 the artist and her young family made their way west to Seattle. Inspired by a new environment and a fresh start the artist began creating. Maggie’s latest work illuminates a lust to let go. To leave the physical body and find the roots of the subconscious. Each piece takes a journey into the layers of the body mind connection, and questions what lies beyond. Most days Maggie can be found nannying, caring for her family, and sketching. Recently the artist began a new journey supporting women in labor as a birth doula.

Barozzi_Deerheart
Bherd Studios Gallery
312 N 85th Street, Suite 101 (above Chase Bank)
Southern Gothic presents the work of five female artists from Portland, whose works reveal a phantasmagoric world caught between fairytale and nightmare. Lea Barozzi, Lesley Reppetaux, Kalina Torino, Heidi Elise Wirz and Kendra Binney paint lissome, sloe-eyed beauties who journey unafraid through places steeped in myth, symbolism and danger.

Fairytale imagery plays a key role in all of these fantastical visions. Lea Barozzi’s luminous gamines shine against a backdrop of twilit blue, their haunting eyes appearing to follow viewers from within the canvas. Painted in cool colors, Barozzi’s small vignettes contain mysterious iconography: sinuous striped tentacles, ghostly dark-eyed dogs, shy red fawns, and mounds of tiny skulls. Lesley Reppetaux’s acrylic on board paintings are scenes plucked from lost myths, rife with menacing creatures, spirit helpers, and not-so-innocent maidens who explore the wild in their skivvies. Rich jewel tones, a strong sense of humor and inspiration from world mythology mark the work of painter Kalina Torino. Whether they are pudgy mermaids, cutie-pie woodland nymphs, or tricksy sprites, Torino’s lively characters invite the viewer to enter a world bursting with mischief and play.

*For the 3rd Year Bherd gallery is co-promoting their All Ladies show with TASTY gallery in our neighborhood, whose show is called: Tarts, Trollops & Tramps. With 10% of all art sales donated to New Beginnings (a non-profit helping to end domestic violence).
