West Seattle Cellars October Artist, Kate Fluckinger

Working primarily in oil paints and encaustic (pigmented beeswax) Kate Fluckinger explores themes of transition, sensation, and perception. She is drawn to the concept of liminality, an inter-worldly or in-between state that hints to us that there is more to life than what we see. Her paintings often reflect landscapes, emotional and otherwise, and are frequently rooted in the internal mutability she feels. While drawn to organic shapes and processes, she is fond of structure, lines, and boundaries, so painting for Kate is about finding the place between total control and freedom. She seeks to convey a kind of meaningful chaos, where meticulousness meets uninhibited expression. See more of her work at http://www.katefluckinger.com

Kate is also a long-time customer of our shop and we’re excited to be able to present her artwork this month.

On Art Walk Thursday, our weekly wine tasting features wines from Neal Rosenthal, an importer of fine wines from France and Italy. Our good friend Greg Finger, of Domaine Selections, will join us to present some of his favorite Rosenthal French and Italian wines. The tasting is free, and runs from 5:30 until 9:00 on Thursday, October 14. Good wine and good art–always a winning combo!
