Click! Design that Fits: Works by Vivan Wang 6p-9p
The prints I’ll be showing at Click investigate how we perceive and interpret space. I created compositions of interweaving lanes that are accented with an arrangement of lines. I endeavor to push how the viewer sees this illusion of dimension. Their eyes would navigate the intertwined lanes, following the arrangement of lines into the depth of the print, but also find the flat areas of color to contrast that dimensionality as their eyes are drawn back to the surface.
Re/Max: Works by Kane Bowen 6p-9p
Kane Bowen is a Seattle artist, musician, and stylist. His visual artwork is a byproduct of self reflection, the observation of reality, and the exploration of the subconscious mind. Attention to detail and meticulousness are the backbone of his creations, whether using acrylics, watercolors, or pencils. He finds inspiration in his perception of dreams and nightmares, the immense and mysterious nature of the universe, and the elements that form our existence. By day, Kane expresses himself creatively as the Style Director at Essensuals London on Capitol Hill.
Virago Gallery: Works by Brianna McCarthy Matters of Inheritance 5p to 9p
Matters of Inheritance illuminates the serpentine process of constantly making and mending ourselves from legacies of violence that constructs Black womanhood as the antithesis of human. Through ornate paintings and fabric assemblages, Brianna McCarthy examines the internal atrocities caused by centuries of colonial mythology brutally imposed on our bodies. McCarthy confronts the ways Black women are taught to be dim, to be small, and to be soft while carrying the trauma of generations shattered by a world that does not want us alive.
Wallflower Custom Framing: Works David Atkinson 5p-8p
Come visit the West Seattle office on Thursday, August 10, 2017, from 5-8PM for our first West Seattle Art Walk exhibit. We are excited to feature the works of West Seattle resident artist, Carolyn Autenrieth. Refreshments will be provided.
The ordinary often holds mystery and beauty.
I have always appreciated Georgia O’Keeffe’s thoughts: “No one really takes the time to see…” she writes noting that we see only what we think we see, often never slowing down to invest the time it takes to really understand the visual world.
West Seattle Performing Arts
Viscon Cellars: Works by Pamela Resnick 5p-9p
No wine Tasting fees for Art Walk participants!
My artwork is inspired by nature.
The colors, textures and form are just the beginning; they touch my life and motivate me to paint and bring them to life indoors.
Whether it’s the beauty, light, warmth of the sun or sense of calmness, they must have depth and dimension.
I want to see and feel the depth in my paintings and be taken to that inspiring place.
