Nicholas Holzer INDOORS + RECEPTION 5pm – 8pm

North Dakota native Nicholas Holzer moved to Seattle in 2019 to pursue art and architecture. Inspired by the artistic talent and entrepreneurial spirit of his grandparents, Nicholas first began selling art in college for beer money. This hobby quickly turned into a serious pursuit as he continued developing his artistic voice. Since arriving in Seattle, he’s been developing a style that incorporates his varied influences and a desire to subvert artistic rules of composition and scale. This pursuit resulted in his most recent series titled, “concepts?”. In an attempt to eliminate or sometimes heighten negative space, Nicholas pairs large swathes of color and texture with elements of fine tooth realism. This style, accompanied by a keen focus on American nostalgia, highlights the exuberance of the community and the loneliness of the individual.
Come and Enjoy.

T. Frick is a self-taught artist and female entrepreneur. She is a licensed Landscape Architect with a Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Art has always been a key part of T’s life, even as a young child. But it was her training in the architectural field that advanced her drafting, sketching, and painting style.
Growing up, T. could be found wandering the backwoods with one of her resident pups or when indoors, she occupied her time with drawing, painting, or other creative hobbies. Her love of nature and the outdoors led to a career in design. When not working, you’ll typically find her creating — colors, shapes, textures, and movement creatively come to mind, manifesting into abstract, typically landscape or floral visions.
T. will tell you she dreams in trees. They just seem to end up on the canvas! No painting is ever planned. She begins with freedom of expression and movement, mark-making with no preset destination. After multiple sessions, a painting will eventually begin to reveal itself and navigate towards its intended vision. T. is currently working in oil and cold wax, acrylic, and mixed media in an abstract, expressive style. Her paintings are typically smaller in size with larger works on the horizon. Commissions at any scale are available upon request. Check out T’s website and join her on an artistic journey through her diverse array of artwork!

Debbie Bianchi INDOORS+RECEPTION 5pm-8pm

I love painting flowers and birds, many of my paintings contain cherry blossoms and or magnolia blossoms. It took me a while to realize how much I love 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 strength, 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 that remind me of whimsical daydreams. Of course I have included my beloved birds, by painting them I am trying to share their freedom of motion and beautiful magic with my viewers. This body of work has been created to inspire an appreciation of natures indulgences in our natural eco systems and I hope to remind all of us to not take any of these gifts of nature for granted. Love your planet. My art has been published in many magazines and art books in addition to have many shows throughout the Pacific Northwest and I have participated in the New York Art Expo. I am honored to say my art has been included in several European private collections.

Framed original art, and prints and cards. I have been interested in the natural world my whole life, and I find joy in seeing the tiny details in living things. As a child, I enjoyed books and the outdoors, and was influenced by the words and illustrations in stories like Watership Down, Charlotte’s Web, and The Wind in the Willows. My paintings are little stories from a world where animals live a cozy, rural life, but one which is also sometimes unexpected and surprising.

FLYING APRON

4709 CALIFORNIA AVE SW

Matthew D Hoover ARTIST OPEN STUDIO 5pm-8pm

Matthew D. Hoover first emerged in the 1980’s as a photographer earning recognition through showings such as NW International Exhibition of Photography, Exposure Gallery of Photography, the Bellevue Art Fair and the Bellevue Art Museum.  A series of 40 paintings were created during this period with all ending up in private collections.  There was also a small set of note cards once distributed locally. Photography was the primary creative mainstay until 2018 when more time could be dedicated towards painting once again.  A small set of acrylic paintings were created during the Covid shutdown of 2020 although oils are the medium of choice.  Subject matter is heavily influenced as a Pacific Northwest native with travels through Italy & France.  Landscapes are formed through a distinctive pointillism style creating textured layers with rich colors. With a multitude of layered oils, it is not uncommon for a single piece to take months to complete with beautiful scenery through a potpourri of color.  This very refreshing impressionistic work is worthy of gallery, business or home environments.  See a full portfolio and bio at //www.MatthewDHoover.com

A big supporter of local small businesses and charitable causes, Matthew D. Hoover will occasionally offer art donations to charitable events for fund raising purposes.

4711 CALIFORNIA AVE SW

Barry Johnson INDOORS 4pm-7pm. Business hour display only.

Sumthin’ Sumthin’

Seattle-based artist Barry Johnson works explore a deep investment in his cultural heritage. His work was created to combat the overarching absence and erasure of Black figures throughout time. Noting how canonical Western history has obscured and annulled Black history, Johnson’s work echoes this deletion only to reclaim that very same space. Johnson’s portraiture series displays a unique range of techniques. Elements of collage, stoic faces and partially obstructed figures are emblazoned by bold strokes, shapes, and colors that imbue each of his characters with zeal and strength. The duality between the sober expressions of the figures and the vivacity of the canvases is the artist’s pointed reminder to the audience that the contributions of artists of color are vast and yet rarely acknowledged. Johnson addresses this inequality and he and his figures alike demand better. As tangible, personal investments to right a flawed narrative, each of the works presented evoke their own energetic tenor and comment on the mental trauma in dealing with the effects of an ever intolerant and racist society. Johnson has received the Edwin T. Pratt Award, smART Ventures award, GAP Award, and was a finalist for the Conductive Garboil Grant, Neddy Award and Seattle Art Museum’s Betty Bowen Award. Johnson’s work has been shown and collected throughout the nation. He’s also created multiple permanent artworks regionally, including an immersive mural for Facebook’s Bellevue Office during his Open Arts Residency with them and a large-scale permanent fabrication and sculpture for the Midtown development in Seattle, WA.

Christy Kruse is an artist originally from Seattle, WA. She always loved drawing and photography from a young age. She studied fine arts at the University of South Australia, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and the University of Washington where she completed the Scientific Illustration Program. Her photography has been published in Black & White Magazine. Christy has displayed her work at the Burke Museum in Seattle, WA  and received a second place award on the DP Challenge for “Night Snow Ferry”. She most recently participated in the Bellevue Art Museum Art Fair, the largest award-winning arts & crafts festival in the Northwest.

From the artist: The materials I work with are paper, glue, gold leaf, gel medium, my printer, and film or digital photographs (some I manipulate, some I do not); some I have taken recently and some long, long ago. Using the medium of a piece of paper and the multi-step layering process of painting gold leaf, I find myself with boundaries, structure and depth, allowing me to complete the next flash of inspiration along my journey.

Nick Riesland BUSINESS HOUR DISPLAY ONLY 3pm-11pm.

Please note: Artist is not able to attend.

In our time, the inundation of digital images is extraordinary. Yet perhaps surprisingly, people remain captivated by works using traditional media, such as painting and sculpture, and continue crowding museums to experience their marvelous power. Painting, for me, transforms that which it seeks to captivate, thereby promising to bring a new experience to the viewer, even inviting participation. I like to hope that this process, and what I bring forth through working it out, will hook the eye and engage the psyche. I feel extremely fortunate to engage in this transformation, whether painting from life, from photos, or from pure imagination, across an undulating range of subjects.

Works are being exhibited at both the Canna West Culture Shop and at the Canna West dispensary (21+). Please visit us on Thursday August 11 when Sam will be discussing the art and their process and inspiration.

My name is Sam King. I am a self-taught artist from Seattle, WA ! All my work has its roots in realism and the challenge to accurately depict the image in front of me. My works stays within the realm of people and animals, with forays into still life or elements of the world around me. Most of all, I love creating meaningful art that tells a story and speaks to the soul. If you’d like to show my art in your establishment or would like to book me for a live event, please visit my contact page for information on how to get ahold of me. My medium of choice is acrylic paint. They allow me the precision to render life expression and detail but also the freedom to blend and move. I also use watercolor to capture light and softness or pen and ink to make a dramatic statement with fine detail.

Liz Moody INDOOR SHOW+RECEPTION, 5pm-8pm

“My latest body of work explores the intentional disintegration and abstraction of a still life scene, eliciting a feeling of beginning a profound sense of nourishment and newness. The warm cradle of a burgeoning kaleidoscopic natural environment evokes calm but reminds the viewer of times rapidity and the constant annihilation cycle of the natural world. WE see the energy of the paint as moving object and hold onto it for a moment before the decay.” – Liz Moody

Seattle based artist, Liz Moody, has been honing her skills in painting for over 20 years. Originally a Minnesota native, she’s made the Pacific Northwest her home since 2007. You can usually find her riding her bike all over the city or doing doing sun salutations at roof top yoga. Although she loves the outdoors; camping and all things nature, her favorite weekend activity is antique shopping and thrift-store “picking” for her vintage clothing business (@babydeervintage).

Kevin Ducoing INDOOR SHOW 5:30pm-8pm

It’s a pleasure to meet you. I am Kevin Ducoing, or just Kev (as in ‘Art of Kev’). Living in the ‘island town’ of West Seattle has given me the opportunity to unplug from city life just by being in my neighborhood. This allows me to concentrate on making art. Lately, I’ve been concentrating on the trees in our neighborhood, and how trees — even a single tree—  transforms a neighborhood into something quite different. Urban trees absorb noise, make shade and homes for a wide variety of animals. Attempting to capture this aesthetic in my art is a continuing adventure. I invite you to enjoy my work!
If you like a painting, I offer custom payment plans. If you would like a print instead, please contact me! I am also available for commission if you would like me to paint something special for you!

Rodolfo Rios Garza INDOORS + RECEPTION 5pm-9pm

I am mostly self-taught but early on benefitted from the mentoring of the late renowned Southwest artist Mel Casas, and from Peruvian artist, Francisco Grippa. I get my inspiration from my surroundings, both natural and man-made, photographs, music and from images in my dreams. This exhibit focuses on trees. Trees are such an endless source of inspiration for me. Trees speak to me in many ways. In them I see energy, love, sadness, and so much more. Their texture lends itself to detailed expression while their limbs can denote a range of moods and resurrect memories. As is my practice, I also include new pieces outside of the show’s main theme as a means of hinting at where my mind wonders and where that wondering might lead me creatively.

Theme of the show is “Trees”, with original acrylic paintings and a few prints on canvas.

About the Artists Please note: artists will not be present as exhibit is business hours only.

Glenda Weibel

Glenda is a watercolor artist who has lived in West Seattle for over 20 years. She loves the immediacy and fluidity of watercolor, but has recently been exploring ways to free watercolor paintings from being framed behind glass. Several of the pieces in this show are done on archival tissue paper and mounted on a canvas and finished with varnish. This technique maintains the freshness of watercolor, yet sets it free from glass. She also enjoys using traditional watercolor paper and some of those are also in the show.

Laurel Donkervoet

Laurel Donkervoet is a Washington native, born and raised in Puyallup. She moved to Seattle to attend school at Seattle Pacific University seventeen years ago to study apparel design and has been here ever since. She’s lived in West Seattle for the last ten years with her husband and three children where she spends her free time exploring the beautiful world of watercolor painting.
