Virago Gallery: Works by Dahlia Elsayed Fictions, Frictions 5p to 7p
Meet the artist Dahlia Elsayed,
Saturday, September 16th from 6 to 9pm with artist talk at 7pm
Dahlia Elsayed’s first show with Virago Gallery features works on paper on the theme of language, landscape, poetry and shifting perspectives. The 16 works in the show include paintings and a series of 12 painted paper collages with handwritten text as part of the image.
Dahlia Elsayed combines text and imagery to create visually narrative paintings that document internal and external geographies. She begins with verse as a starting point of each work and uses the edited texts in created landscapes, mixing the psychological with the topographical.
Her work, influenced by conceptual art, comics, and landscape painting, is informed by autobiography and environment, to create illustrated documents of place and memory. Symbols of hard data- flags, borders, geologic forms, horizon lines – are used to frame soft data – wordplay, metaphors, lists allowing image and language to continuously modify each other.
Wallflower Custom Framing: Identity Works Michelle Smith-Lewis 5p-8p
IDENTITY, An intimate view of dancers in the Pacific Northwest and how identity is reflected through movement.
IDENTITY is an ongoing photographic project that focuses on capturing the signature style of an individual dancer. It is not about the traditional or perfect pose but a closer look on how a dancer moves revealing the key elements that form their identity.

No wine tasting fees for Art Walk participants! Pamela Resnick will be painting live in the Viscon Cellars Winery Tasting Room for September 14th Artwalk.
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.
