Izaya Colson INDOORS SHOW + RECEPTION 5pm – 8pm

Visit Lily’s not just for their wonderful cuisine but to see their large wall mural depicting the city of Guazapa where the owner, Lily, grew up. Below is the description of the art murals:

The inspiration for this painting was to replicate a peaceful, small city in El Salvador, called “GUAZAPA”. Lily, owner of “LILY’S SALVADOREAN RESTAURANT”, was raised in Guazapa before moving to USA in 2004 and then to Seattle in 2007. One of the first and most important things to notice is the woman in the lead. She is wearing a blue and white dress to represent the El Salvador flag. In the center of the painting is the lifeline river “RIO GUAZAPA”. A river like this is where Lily’s family would wash clothes and bathe. The yellow flowers in each corner of the painting are the national flower, called “FLOR DE IZOTE”. Unlike flowers which face up, these face down, almost as if they are relaxing. They vary in color from vibrant yellow to soft off white. One the far right, you will see the national bird El Salvador, called “TOROGOZ”. Lily recalls how the birds would sometimes peck at her window, which she found humorous. She felt a friendly connection the the birds, as if they were very aware of each other’s presence.

Look closely at the mountain in the background, you might see the “sleeping lady”. This mountain view is only visible from some angles. When the civil war started in 1979, the fighting was fierce in Suchitoto on the other side of the mountain. Many people fled Suchitoto for the safety of Guazapa.

The painting took ten full days of hard work to realize, from building the frames, painting and installation. Izaya’s intention is for the viewer to feel as if they are stepping into Lily’s world, to experience where she’s from and the things that made her happy. This captures the place where Lily learned about herself and shaped how she relates to the community, family, food, and her culture.

Learn more about Lily’s Salvadorean Restaurant at their Instagram and Facebook pages.

Throughout the pandemic and into the “now-times” I’ve changed much of my artistic style to incorporate the landscapes and beauty of the Pacific Northwest into my already existing abstract flow. Landscapes that focus on the changing coasts, bodies of water and skies, flowers that bring bright color to our long grey months, and contrasting lines and movement. These pieces are my love letter to sunshine, the birds and the bees, and the things that grow all around us.

Shael Anderson INDOORS+RECEPTION, 12pm-8pm

Shael’s images are triggered by seeing a material or object in place. Capturing how it has aged, weathered, and worn. How it was manipulated, either intentionally or unintentionally by its use or function. And how it has been polished or finished to gain its patina and beauty. Shael believes ‘seeing it in place allows my eye to capture it as a thought, and then let my mind work on where I want to take it as an ongoing experience for myself and others.” Born and raised in Seattle, the majority of the work in this show was discovered and captured locally. 

Shael Anderson’s abstract photography beautifully framed and ready to hang in your art collection. Nicole Pepper’s hand carved ceramic mugs, dishes, and other vessels. WEND Jewelry’s hand made and nature inspired rings, earrings, necklaces and more wearables.

Scott Chreist INDOORS + RECEPTION 5pm-til late

Scott Chreist hails from just left of the center of New Mexico. In his early years it was quite obvious that he was highly creative long before it was noted in any police blotter. He emerged unscathed from primary schooling only to find that he had somehow ended up in New England while his parents remained in the Southwest. So like any other normal young man, he launched himself into college for the third time. His GPA soared though he continued his valiant, if slightly misunderstood, efforts to understand the world around himself. If not for the heroic friendships he formed and the weathered guidance of his professors, surely Scott would have ended up working as a bartender for the remainder of his life. His art is influenced by people he’s known and places he’s been, by artists like Luigi Profeta, Matisse, Richter, Mark Price, and by the scenery life presents.

Rance Holiman INDOORS SHOW+RECEPTION 5pm-8pm

Beverages & Appetizers Available 

A local artist born and raised in Seattle Washington. The youngest of 6 boys from a family of 12, Rance soon put crayon to paper, while coloring the world around him. Eventually realizing that what had once just been a way of passing time, had become his passion as an artist. After experimenting with different mediums and styles, oil became his medium of choice. Rance became increasingly drawn to impressionism and its effects. The mere idea of taking an empty canvas or board, and transforming it into a work of art excites his creativity. Not only has Rance Holimans work been appreciated in many Seattle homes and offices, but also around the world.

Patrick Sanford started drawing at a young age and creating art has always been present in his life. Pat’s first professional art job came in 1976 as a staff artist at KOMO-TV, and later was a designer/animator/art director at KIRO TV’s Third Avenue Productions. Between stints at the local TV stations, Pat studied illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.

In 1992, Pat co-founded the video post-production/design company, FlyingSpot. The next 22 years were spent building and running a business, with clients across the country, highlighted by an Emmy Award for the design of a National Geographic Television show open. With a rapidly growing business and family (3 kids – Kristian, Raija, Hanna), the need to make art was always there but was limited to family pieces, vacation sketches, and the occasional arts festival entry.

In 2015, Pat rededicated himself to get-your-hands-dirty, non-digital art but video design, animation, and editing are still very much part of Pat’s work in his home studio.

A 45-year resident of West Seattle, Pat lives in Endolyne with his wife, Kristi.

Pat especially enjoys portrait work, both humans and animals, and welcomes commission work. Recent commissions include portraits of Edgar Martinez and Ken Griffey, Jr. for the Seattle Mariners. Samples of Pat’s artwork can be found on Facebook (ArtSanford) and Instagram (@patrickssanford).

From that simple enjoyment of visual things, I wanted to create my own which has slowly led me to where I am now.

5435 California Ave SW

Alessandria Rosa INDOORS SHOW & RECEPTION 5pm-8pm

For February, Canna West Seattle and Canna West Culture Shop are excited to present local Alessandria Rosa.

Artist Statement
My art is often expressive and emotional and is created using a variety of mediums such as paint, ink, and found objects. Rather than adhering to a predetermined set of rules or restrictions, I create art intuitively, using my own emotions and life experiences as inspiration. The goal of my work is to communicate something personal and meaningful to the viewer, and to connect with them on a deeper level. I utilize my work to communicate and process my feelings about healing from trauma, staying present, and connecting to the divine energy of the natural world. There are many ways that I convey these themes in my art, and the specific approach will depend on the emotional impact of the experience I am working through. My ultimate goal is to serve as an example of how to express the process of redemption via spirituality and to release pain through art. For myself and maybe even the viewer, I want to provide a cathartic outlet.

Artist Biography
Beginning when she was 16 years old, Alessandria Rosa has hustled her entire adult life to achieve her dreams. She put herself through a community college while still in high school before transferring to Western Washington University to receive a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Studio Art and Graphic Design. Alessandria is currently trying to start her own art business. She also works in procurement and occasionally does freelance graphic design. Over the course of the past six years, Alessandria has experimented with the idea of creating abstract paintings utilizing fluid acrylic paint and mixed media. Since then, she has exhibited her work in group gallery exhibitions and local neighborhood venues. She has also granted permission for her artwork to be used on packaging. Alessandria is presently on display at the Onyx Gallery in Seattle’s downtown Pacific Place. Alessandria frequently draws inspiration for her artwork from a variety of places, including her personal life, her spirituality, and the natural world. Alessandria also uses collage and drawing to produce her pieces in addition to paint pouring.

Flora Carlile-Kovacs: Flora Felts Handmade Textiles

My interest in textiles drew me to graduate studies in ethnography, but I felt a deeper passion for creating with fiber than analyzing it. I have learned several traditional fiber arts from the greatest masters in Hungary. When I’ve learned the basics of the felting technique, I realized this is a limitless medium with amazing possibilities. In my work I use the most ancient textile technique, combining carded, unspun wool and silk fibers with water, soap and vigorous kneading to create a durable, unwoven material: felt. I have improved the traditional techniques and invented new ones of my own. Breaking away from making useful objects I am now exploring how handmade felt can become applied art for public spaces. I use several layers of hand-dyed merino wool and silk fibers and fabrics to create optical color blending. I incorporate various materials in the felt to achieve captivating textures and surfaces. I often create raised surfaces so the light refracts on the ruffles of silk and synthetic fabrics. Handmade felt is underestimated and underrepresented in the art world. My mission is to find its audience and to break the boundary between craft and fine art.
