Dan Jacobs INDOORS+RECEPTION 5pm-8pm

I’ve enjoyed the art of photography for over 40 years.  I’ve explored and enjoyed many other mediums but keep returning to my love for creative expression through photographs.  Most of my work involves exploring various forms, structures and perspectives in the PNW and how they are enhanced by natural lighting.  I especially enjoy highlighting detail that you might not see at a casual glance. On occasion I may drift into some more abstract filtering techniques, but for the most part what you see is what I saw in the moment the image was captured.

Megan Skinner INDOORS + RECEPTION 2pm – 8pm

Seattle artist Megan Skinner is excited to present her Couture Tarot prints at Molly’s Bottle Shop West Seattle. Each piece features Megan’s unique collage art, re-envisioning the archetypes of the Tarot through the lens of couture fashion. This showing includes 16 of Megan’s collages, which were the basis of her Couture Tarot deck. 

Infused with mysticism, the Couture Tarot combines traditional symbolism along with contemporary imagery. The collages are bright, colorful and fun, creating an uplifting and inspired visual experience.

This show will include the art from some of Megan’s favorite cards, including the Fool, Moon, Wheel of Fortune and Star, among other. 

To Megan, high fashion is art, and one of her greatest inspirations: “From a stack of fashion magazines, I became a mystical seamstress, cutting and sewing (or in this case, pasting!) together different images to create 78 individual tapestries reflecting the energies of each card.” 

Each print in this limited edition batch is available for sale and signed by artist.

Reeve Washburn Art INDOORS+RECEPTION 5pm-8:30pm

E V O L U T I O N  //  L A Y E R E D

When is a painting complete? It’s a popular question or point to ponder among artists. Sometimes, when the deadline looms. Sometimes, when it just feels right. Which may be within a very short, or considerably longer, period of time, and with a number of iterations. I am finding that the reconsideration of a work’s color palette, technique, composition, or mood can bring unexpected results, even delights. I am also finding that an artist (like me) can evolve in bursts, which might mean a work’s revision becomes a new expression of self. The new layers are a mantle for the work’s original intention, just as the experimentation and learnings are a mantle that enfolds me as I progress in my practice.

MY STORY

I’ve always been in the business of creating, first as a graphic designer, then as a project and account manager of strategic brand design. Being artistic has been a constant, and being part of the creative process in my professional life has been very satisfying. At a career juncture in 2018, I joined the West Seattle Art Walk as a coordinator, to engage more deeply in my community. The experience was transformative: inspired by the participating businesses and artists, their stories and their work, I tapped into my own curiosity to paint abstracts.

I was born and raised in Manhattan and live in Seattle, where I moved to in 1991, with my husband and two young-adult children. I have a degree in Architecture but turned from three dimensions to two, paste-up to pixels, and now to paints.

Rena Haveson and Lauren Milne INDOORS+RECEPTION 5-8pm

Art & Jewelry Show!

Rena Haveson has been painting for 25 years. She began her education at Boston University studying Art and Art History. From 1988 to 1996 she owned and operated an art gallery in Pittsburgh, PA., displaying works by contemporary American painters, including her own.

Strong color and passion for life are evident in her work. Subject matter is often expressionistic, with dream-like qualities. She often uses a palette knife or collage techniques to enrich the canvas. This is to allow the viewer to constantly wander in and out of reality while perceiving the painting.

The Faces series is a collection of feelings and emotions that lend themselves to an abstract vision. The paint is built up with layers of acrylic and oil and then it is painted over again so that there is a sense of mystery of what was before, beneath the layers of paint

Learn more about Rena’s work at her Instagram and website.

The far-reaching origins of Lauren Milne’s materials lend significance and richness to each unique creation. From the Far East she has sourced artifacts such as hand-carved jade and turquoise, Buddhist prayer beads of lotus seed, centuries old tribal Burmese pumtek beads and ornate Chinese silver locks. From the marketplaces of the Middle East, Lauren has curated a collection of silver from the nomadic Turkoman people and coins from 18th century headdresses. Through Lauren’s artistic eye and hand, these antiquities are transformed into contemporary heirlooms.

SHIMA STAR FOR
SEATTLE DECONSTRUCTED ART FAIR

Thursday, August 12, 20215:00 PM  5 – 9 PM

Devised in response to the cancellation of much anticipated 2020 Seattle Art Fair due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the SDAF allowed for local galleries to showcase the work they had already planned to exhibit at the fair, and then grew to include the whole visual arts community in a truly collaborative effort. A hybrid of virtual exhibitions with in-person offerings, drew the attention of over 13k unique website visitors and brought crowds safely back into the galleries to view artwork over the course of the month.

Through the collaborative efforts of the gallery community, the SDAF returns in August 2021 continuing with the hybrid format of online and in-person exhibitions, with an added calendar of in-person events. With the aim to raise awareness of the existing vibrant arts and culture available in Seattle and beyond, SDAF celebrates the re-opening and recovery of our neighborhoods and the resilience of the visual arts community as not a single art gallery has closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Kate Wolf INDOORS + RECEPTION, 5-8pm

Altered Polaroids

I love connections to place and people through art. I stumbled into making altered Polaroid pictures in 1999 in Provincetown, MA. I had a Polaroid 600 and a pair of scissors. I’d snap the shot, cut around the edges of the image, peel off the top layer and interrupt the development. It was as if the picture was transported back in time: the colors remained muted, crackles appeared, and a fiery seal wrapped the border. It was exciting to compose an image but also be able to manipulate it on the spot to accomplish something that really wasn’t within the capabilities of the old Polaroid. Then in 2008, Polaroid folded and stopped making the film. The altered Polaroids literally became sealed in the past. This happened right at the rise of digital filters – which could generate similar effects – and other instant film and cameras which didn’t respond to the guerrilla method with the scissors. It was disappointing, but there was also something poetic about the medium itself becoming something that could not be recreated.

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.

Please contact Jan at West Seattle Cellars for purchase details.

Debbie Bianchi INDOORS + RECEPTION 6pm-9pm

In this series I have been playing with and exploring the elegance and simple beauty of the magnolia flower. Some Victorian texts state the meaning of the magnolia flower represents the symbols of nobility, perseverance and love of nature. Soft and subtle in color yet strong in appearance, the flower is representative of the beauty encompassing femininity and gentleness.


The flower generally comes in pinks, lavender and whites but I have been exploring the same shapes and planes with bold or just unexpected colors to hint of indulgent daydreams and whimsy. I incorporate my birds to frolic among my fairy tale inspired abstract flora. I include hints to natures indulgences in our natural eco systems and hope to remind my viewers to not take any of natures gifts for granted. Learn more on her website.

You will also have the chance to meet massage therapist Julene Coblentz of Chrysalis Cove Massage who has been providing therapeutic massage and cranio-sacral therapy in West Seattle for 22 years. She shares space at Resolve Chiropractic in a complementary partnership, for more comprehensive care.

Lady Elliot

Lady Elliot’s artistic style has developed from a mixture of influences from her personal evolution as well as fondness for the life and excitement of the night. When she first began to paint black backgrounds it was because she felt that the blackness has so much more potential and mystery to it than any other colour. White backgrounds always felt like an empty container void of mystery whereas the darkness spoke to her, as if all the vivacious characters hiding in the blackness were inviting her to come and discover them. Lady Elliot has always been a night owl and first began to pair black backgrounds with brightly colored characters and creatures as a means to connect with her child-self who would always insist on staying up late to create and play with bizarrely colored creatures. May we all stay connected with our inner child!

Inclusive Care, Inclusive Artwork

Dr. Stefanie embraces care for every body, providing chiropractic that is personal, compassionate, and effective. She curates her monthly art exhibits to reflect her practice’s inclusivity with body positive imagery, and hosts artists of color, such as Jade Buchanan of White Center in September. She would love to say hello and share more about her background and practice! Come by Resolve Chiropractic on August 12 to help celebrate: 6553 California Ave SW, Suite B, on the corner of California Avenue and Holly, one block south of the Morgan/Fauntleroy Junction.
