HIGHLIGHTS:

  • All City Coffee presents Seattle photographer Niffer Calderwood. Known for her photographs of musicians on stage and off, a stroll through Ms. Calderwood’s portfolio will remind you of the blood pumping euphoria of live music and loud guitars. Niffer’s aesthetic has the high low grit that personifies many of Seattle’s greatest music and art superstars. Like a perfectly dressed vixen flipping you the middle finger, Calderwood captures the razor edge beauty of music in action.
  • The Alice hosts their third exhibition, Made Personal, guest curated by Serrah Russell, featuring new works by Serrah Russell, Joe Rudko and Colleen RJC Bratton. Drawn together by their formal composition, minimalist aesthetic, and shared interest in working with found materials that reference a past history, including photo collage, sculpture, fiber arts, and a collaborative publication. The artists will continue studying how gestures of collage can frame common materials as personal and significant. The works will be installed alongside objects (plants, rocks, domestic and architectural symbols) from the artist’s own lives to form pairings and associations that question an understanding of the object and image. Opening reception May 9, 6-9pm.
