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.

Live music from 7:00 – 9:00 P.M.

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

Featured Artist: Sunni Farley
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.

Squid Inc-crop

Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th Street, Suite 101
(located above Chase Bank)
Squid Inc.—or Giant Squid Supply—was one of the great companies to arise from the American Industrial Revolution, establishing itself in Ballard, WA in 1839. A squid-producing, transporting, refining and marketing company, their products fed kings, presidents, and the common man. Their miracle cure—Squid Ink—battled ailments from halitosis to boot rot, and could be found across the nation and the world (especially popular in print shops behind the Iron Curtain).

A powerful monopoly on the cephalopod trade, the company was broken up by the Supreme Court in 1987, and its history is shrouded in mystery. But the curtain has begun to lift! The collection of artifacts on display at Bherd Gallery was unearthed as recently as 1993, and has been painstakingly restored to the current condition. Four local artisans—Duffy, Justin Kane Elder & Stefan Hoffman of Electric Coffin, and Kellie Talbot—worked with the region’s top scientists, sociologists and philosophers for two decades to piece together facts amidst the mythology behind Giant Squid Supply. Transforming the Bherd Gallery into a cabinet of curiosities from the rise and fall of Squid Inc., these artist-scholars present vintage advertising and artifacts, shedding light on the history of this company that once held the world in their tentacles. Learn the forgotten history of this once-proud company, and find out why Great Grandpop always smelled of brine when he brushed his teeth. Artists present.

April_Ludlow

Ludlow: 7315 Greenwood Ave N
Morgan Jane Miller, Photographer. I am in love with photography. My photographs tend to be uncluttered and sometimes starkly simple.  and have often been described as painterly. I print on canvas and a very fine textured French cold pressed watercolor paper.  Coming in close with my camera isolates and tells what I think is a truer story. Light, form and shadow amaze me.

I trained at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and was, in my early years, a medical photographer in a teaching hospital.  The technical training I received there was unlike any I ever received in art school.  Because photographing sick people is both difficult and sad, I pursued beauty to help make up for the things that I photographed day to day.  My fine art work has been sold through designers and is in private collections across the United States, Canada and France.  I also have been published in National Geographic Travel Magazine.

I plan to continue learning to the very last of my days. Photography is such an exciting field and the new tools that have been developed for Digital Photographers has opened whole new worlds for creating.

Recently, I have been photographing things that are considered vintage.  I get a kick out of using a state of the art digital camera to capture the beauty and patina of chipped, rusty and just plain beautiful old buildings and  other things I come across in my travels. These images are all from France.

This Friday, we are pleased to host artist Rowena Mae D. Javelona and will have some light refreshments available, including Filipino beer and lumpia.

Ms. Javelona is an architect by profession, but has a passion for fine art drawing, painting and photography. She has lived and traveled in many places and now divides her time between the two countries she calls home, the Philippines, the country of her birth, and the United States, specifically the Pacific Northwest. Javelona has exhibited her work in local libraries and neighborhood galleries.

Each of the drawings in this exhibit is done in Prismacolor color pencils on Canson sketch paper. All are created simply from my spontaneous, technicolor, wild imagination. If you have any questions or would like to purchase a drawing, please email the artist at maedcjavelona@yahoo.com.
