  • studio e  hosts the works of Brian Beck and Daniel Mount. Brian Beck presents Obsolescence,  a traditional, hand-built Swedish log cabin, assembled and installed inside the gallery. Since the quality of the wood and its availability determine the form and the design of the cabin, Beck sees a direct correlation between the material and the process of construction/creation. Beck’s artwork simultaneously breaches and reinforces the boundaries between the aesthetic and the usable. The title of the work further alludes to the shift in our appreciation of traditional design and materials, craftsmanship, non-mechanized technologies, and durability in today’s utilitarian culture of readily made, disposable objects. Willow: Daniel Mount Photographs by botanist, Daniel Mount. The willows are a variable and primordial group of woody plants.Daniel Mount has turned his lens on the collection of over 50 types willows he grows on his property nestled in Carnation Marsh, east of Seattle, showing the sometimes sinister, and often-joyous side of these plants long associated with sorrow.

  • Spectrum House Salon & Photography  presents “Vital Fluids” by Seb Barnett. Seb’s imagery explores the space between reality and fantasy in a contemporary context.

Plants, fungi and color become a symbol of intense emotions that can’t necessarily be known, understood, or expressed. Opening Saturday July 11th, showing Tuesday-Saturday, 10-7, through Sept 6.

  • The Alice Gallery hosts KOAN COMPOSITES: An exhibit by Ari Fish.The line between blame and confession, projection and acceptance, choice and mandate, and life and death feels, at times, palpable. KOAN COMPOSITES is the fourth installment of the SPEAK AND SPELL SERIES of temporary temples by Ari Fish and is an obliterated riddle of the probability of these palpabilities. Fish has orchestrated the fourth installation in the series to allow the congregants of the temporary temple to engage in disengaging. Fish’s work integrates elements of sacred ritual, religious study, multi­sensory saturation and deprivation, and stresses an emphasis on survival and necessity.The Alice has been transformed into an ethereal and challenging experience for the viewer to process the acceptance of death, rebirth, and nothing. All are welcome to come as they are, and leave as they will be.

  • Eight and Sand is exhibiting Childhood Fantasies / Adult Realities, Seb Barnett solo show. Childhood is a magical time, one of the things people forget about magical events is they are not defined by traditional ideas of reality. We look back on childhood with rose colored glasses, not always recalling the upset of a world that was unpredictable, chaotic, and unknown. This body of work is an exploration of the terror and beauty of the fantastic reality that is life.
