Featured Q2 Artist! Congratulations to Jenna Roby whose lovely original watercolor, These Small Hours, graces the new poster AND walking maps, available in participating businesses this week. You can see Jenna’s work in May and June at Viscon Cellars.
About the Artist
As a creative watercolor artist, Jenna strives to create beauty out of the chaos. Jenna’s paintings are created by vibrant washes of watercolor mixing together to create unique and unpredictable combinations. Then she molds and shapes the image and slowly builds while still highlighting the chaotic first layers. Life is unpredictable, live free.. paint free.
Jenna has been teaching watercolor for the past 6 years at many wonderful locations such as Bellevue College, South Seattle Community College and Daniel Smith in Seattle (current).

Deb McCarroll BUSINESS HOURS ONLY (Permanent collection)
Deb McCarroll’s bold work embodies the Northwest’s regional culture. Patterns are created with Seattle’s ubiquitous falling rain. Paper is integrated into wet paint and then set on fire. Metal leaf is frequently woven into scenes and selectively oxidized with acid to add patinas in glittering greens and browns. Local flora and fauna are painted in startling realism and then pared with raw abstract practices.

Leonardo Lanzolla INDOORS+RECEPTION 5pm to 8pm
All Creatures Great and Small
Leonardo’s art is always intended as a poetical-ephemeral visionary navigation of his senses, using color to express the conducive energy of his characters and creatures from his visual experiences deconstructing the esthetic form. The fluid properties of the paint reveal to him a glimpse of a shape or a form that he can capture and let arise with his creative unintentional painterly carving compositions. He explores the life and influences of his characters and their dialogues in an almost not gravitational environment bringing forward an eclectic perception as inner medium.\
Learn more about Leonardo’s work and Fogue Gallery at their website, Facebook and Instagram pages, and read more about owner Patti Curtis’ return home to West Seattle and the history of Fogue in our Business Spotlight on Fogue Gallery!

John Keatley INDOOR + RECEPTION 5pm-8pm
Mystery Made presents Uniform, the photography of John Keatley
His photography career has grown steadily, with a sense of restlessness pushing him to keep exploring. While receiving awards and recognition for his portraits of Annie Leibovitz, Macklemore, and Anthony Hopkins was satisfying, the need persisted to explore ideas outside of commercial photography. Through a process of introspection, Keatley discovered a passion for fine art and self-expression through his photography. Once his series, Uniform, was framed and hung in his first solo exhibition in 2017, Keatley felt he had finally found the outlet he had been looking for to express ideas that he has wrestled with throughout his career. His first book, Uniform, was released in 2019. Honored to showcase some of his insane photography and support another West Seattle friend/patron of the shop
Note from Mystery Made: These Uniform pieces works are beautiful and highly recognized within the art community and make stunning statement pieces for any home office or interior. We want them all!

Damon Brown AKA Creative Lou BUSINESS HOURS 9:30am-5pm
I am a SeattIe, WA-based artist who, from an early age, knew I loved art and to create new designs. I drew inspiration from comic books as I spent countless hours exploring different images and heroic storylines which opened my eyes to artistic creation. As my imagination grew, I began to study various art movements, illustration styles, and urban art. This, in turn, taught to me how things like color, shape, story, and texture can manifest into something so vivid for people to feel and see. I was then able to blend my love for classical art and illustration.
Grace Shipley INDOORS + RECEPTION, 5- 8pm

Hello! My name is Grace, I’m 17 years old and I have been painting and drawing since I was very small. One of my goals over this quarantine has been to create more frequently and take time to work on my painting and drawing skills. So, throughout the past year, I have made more than forty new art pieces, some paintings, and some drawings, that reflect life in quarantine, as well as life before it. I live in West Seattle with my family and dog Rosie and am going to college in the fall in New York. So, I feel very lucky and excited to be having this art show before I leave for school!

Evan Schoenfeld, INDOORS + RECEPTION, 5PM-7PM
Artist Statement: I was born in Seattle in 1958. By my teens I had acquired some drawing and painting skills through independent study, then neglected visual arts until around 2000. The discovery of alpine scenery in the Cascades had a profound effect. “By Jove,” I said, “Somebody needs to paint these.” Since retiring in 2013 I have spent 40 delightful hours in the atelier a week, completing three oils in an average year. Besides mountain environments, my favorite influences are Leonardo, Vermeer, Odilon Redon. Pet peeves: Global warming.

Smoke Signals and Warning Signs
Oil Paintings by local artist Tina Anderson.
“We are all experiencing the impact of climate change.
We’ve witnessed summer days thickened with smoke
from unprecedented wildfires and extreme weather

There is no doubt that we are overwhelmed by the
current onslaught of risks to our lives. The current
global pandemic, gun violence, social and political
unrest is all front page news – in the papers, and in
our minds. But there is no bigger threat to our future
than the health of our planet.
I want my art to contribute to a new dialogue about
climate change in a way that will provoke without
being judgmental. Through the traditional subject of
landscapes, I’ve focused on severe weather events and
wildfires as subjects in order to emphasize that this is
our legacy. Unless we act, this is our new normal. We
