Sandy Ruffin
Featured Artist: Sandy Ruffin Phinney based artist Sandy Ruffin will be showing a selection of her project 100 Monotypes. These are bright, graphic prints created with a gelatin plate and acrylic paint. A wide variety of materials are used to make texture, stencils, and masks to create layers of paint, forming abstract shapes and vibrant color juxtapositions. The process is driven by “what would happen if…” – that sense of trying without knowing the outcome. Artist will be present. Coindexters: 8556 Greenwood Ave N Art Up and Chow Down Site
Admit One
Featured Artist: Admit One Inspired by environment. That environment includes late night bus rides, adventures with the dog, and skating wherever my wheels roll me. If you take a look at my work, you can see how much of a roll music plays in my life. Mostly I just make pictures of things that I see regularly and think are awesome.
Jason Singler
Featured Artist: Jason Singler J has been skateboarding for more than half his life, and started creating art on his griptape during bus rides almost a decade ago to and from school and work. He utilizes pointillism not just because it looks rad to him, but it also makes the markers he uses last longer. He is inspired by his home of Seattle, music, animals, cartoons, and the forever unfolding of life itself. Artists will be present. The Cookie Counter: 7415 Greenwood Ave N Art Up and Chow Down Site

Josiah Green
Featured Artist: Josiah Green This is now my second year doing ArtUp at the Flying Bike and I couldn’t be more thrilled to spend another evening with everyone. 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

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.

Featured Artist: Stephen Gilbert

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.

Miniature Houses Appear in Trees Lining Greenwood Avenue

Miniature houses have sprung up in six trees lining Greenwood Avenue. Seattle artist Carolina Silva created the houses, which are reproductions of existing homes located along Greenwood Avenue N between N 67th and N 80th streets. The project is part of Art Interruptions, a partnership between the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and Seattle Parks and Recreation. Art Interruptions is supported bySDOT 1% for Art funds.

The miniature houses are made of balsa wood painted and varnished to be waterproof, with Plexiglas used for the windows. Each miniature house was placed in city-owned trees close to the original house. The average size is 10 x 10 x 12 inches. The houses are attached using twine and fasteners that are harmless to the trees.

The project Art Interruptions encourages artists to install approved artworks on city sidewalks and parks and offer passers-by a brief interruption in their day with a moment of surprise, beauty or humor. Locations for artworks include street and park infrastructure and street furniture such as railings, stair risers, walls, tree pits and trees.

Additional art projects are coming to the Phinney Ridge and Greenwood neighborhood during PhinneyWood Summer Streets, 6 to 10 p.m., August 10, in conjunction with the monthly Art Up Chow Down art walk. Summer Streets will open Greenwood Avenue N between N 67th and N 87th streets for people to stroll, bike, shop and just enjoy being in their community. Partnering with the Greenwood Arts Council and the art walk means this event will be a bonanza for art lovers.

Along with Art Interruptions, art displayed inside of businesses and yummy eats at Summer Streets, Tasty, a shop featuring original art, is hosting their Third Annual Street Art Fair. Local artists will showcase their wares and chat with passersby. Visitors will also be able to watch artists work in various media, including painting, printmaking, woodcarving and stone carving, created right in front of their eyes by Art on the Ridge. A little farther north, outside of the Greenwood Collective, people will be able to observe large art canvases come alive.
