Patryk Stasieczek  is a visual artist living in Vancouver, BC. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography and philosophy from Concordia University in Montréal, QC as well as a Master of Applied Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design where he investigated the ontological relationships between photographic acts, objects and experiences and is currently a sessional instructor. He is the active director and co-curator of Gallery 295, a young gallery located in the heart of Vancouver’s art district that focuses on emerging contemporary photographic practices and dialogues. He also works as a photographic lab technician at The Lab.
  • Krab Jab Studios is exhibiting Randy Gallegos: Level Up! Game illustrator and imaginary realist Randy Gallegos has put together a show that explores his lifetime relationship to the game industry, from playing his very first home video game console as a child to his professional career as a successful game illustrator for Wizards of the Coast/Hasbro, Topps, White Wolf and more.
  • studio e presents ‘Hinterland’, new work by Northwest artist, Brian Cypher. In his first one-person show in Seattle since 2013’s ‘Future Forage’ at LxWxH Gallery, the new work features paint drawings made with oil sticks, drywall mud and brown builder paper. Utilizing the construction leftovers of building a new studio, Cypher found potential in the Twombly-esque paper scraps. What results is an intersection of found material, Ab-Ex scrawlings, uncharted landscapes and an abstraction of references.
  • Machine House Brewery  is showing Women in Trades, Bettina Hansen and Susan Kelleher / The Seattle Times. Ironworker. Meatcutter. Journeyman Lineman. For Labor Day this project celebrates the hard-working women of Washington in the skilled trades, blazing their own trails in careers that were once only reserved for men. Black and white 4×5 portraits will be displayed alongside the stories of the women who are featured in the work.
  • Guest Shed Gallery presents Pam Keely, “How Can I Help You”. Open for Art Attack and happily by appointment!
  • Eight and Sand is hosting a group show, Lifeblood, literally the blood which flows through our veins. Lifeblood can be many things, family, love, coffee, art, music. In this group show, the artists exhibit what lifeblood means to them.
  • Spectrum House Salon & Photography  presents “Two Thangs”. Matthew Brennan IV creates pop art customized to the patron. Using two pieces of popular culture picked from a buyer’s head, he crafts bright and colorful images creating a modern portrait of the person’s interests. On exhibit will be a series of acrylic paintings mashing up ideas such as Miley Cyrus/Lil Bub, Scarface/ Beignets and Biggie Smalls/Camping.
  • Mary Tudor and Ferrell  Mary Tudor, art with timeless, iconic, images verging on being meditative objects and Ferrell, art with spacial and abstract imaging. Music by Luscious Leopard Lips, the Georgetown atmospheric music DJ with a Theremin synthesize.
  • Praxis Arts Grand opening and Art Collision exhibit reveal. Art Collision is part group art show, part social experiment. In the spring of 2105, 12 artists and makers, mostly strangers, working in a wide variety of mediums dropped their names into a hat. The names were drawn in pairs and 6 teams were formed with the goal to each create a collaborative art piece.  The finished artwork is only half of the story, so we’ll be asking a special guest to join us to share the finer details during Art Attack, 6-9pm.
  • Equinox Studios  is growing arts community in West Georgetown, home to 65+ artists working in a staggering array of mediums, including blacksmithing, welding, woodworking, cycle fabrication, sculpture, painting, film, glass, ceramics, photography, performance art and more! Hop on the free Art Ride shuttle and join us for live demonstrations, open studios, bonfires, and the Wanderlust Art and Fashion Market featuring many talented guest artists and local vendors.
