Emily Gherard: We Have Always Been Broken. March 14 6-9pm                                   

We Have Always Been Broken features a selection of recent plaster works. These works were made by pouring wet plaster into molds constructed of intaglio printing plates. The result is a contradictory form that has the delicate rich marks of an intaglio print but the weight and solidity of a plaster block. These large wall sculptures are made up of multiple individually printed blocks that assemble to form larger structures. The boat-like piece Precious and Vulnerable is made out of 30 shaped printed plaster blocks with an embedded cedar wood structure that stains the plaster. The result is a form that slopes downward, sinking into the ground. A feeling of instability is created by its off-balance composition and top-heavy form.

UNDERBELLY

Lauren Boilini Henry Cowdery 

Closing reception: Saturday February 8th 6-9 pm

UNDERBELLY is an immersive impression of a whale fall. When a whale dies and falls to the floor of the ocean, it creates a complex ecosystem that can provide sustenance for deep-sea organisms for decades. Similar to the nurse logs we find in the Northwest, this occurrence creates life after death. As artists, we are both interested in the cycles joining life and death. Cowdery’s work investigates the role of time in the natural world and Boilini’s looks at violence and death, both the man-made and the natural.

Neighborhood Arts Collective

Fundraiser event December 14 6-9pm

Works on view December 9-14 hours TBD

More about the organization:

We create art that is based on the lives of our neighbors. We do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to this, but we do follow a general process. First, we interview a subject “neighbor”, possibly multiple times, and try to get an accurate sense of what their life is like. We then sit down as a team and discuss the ideas and themes that stand out to us from those interviews. Each artist in the collective spends time developing their own ideas regarding what their contribution will be, and we discuss what media will best portray that neighbor and their life. Then we spend time (weeks, and possibly months) creating art, often with the subject neighbor’s input based on the ideas that have come out of this process of getting to know them better. What you see/read/hear is the product of that process of getting to know one of our neighbors.

This project came together out of a desire to know more about one another. To knock on the door of the people surrounding us and make tangible connections again. Neighborhood Arts Collective was created out of need, something we felt was necessary and important in a nation torn apart by differences and fear. What’s missing? Empathy.

A true master of both drawing and color, Theobald further develops her painting series, Fictive Landscapes, in this body of work titled “And the Language Was Beauty.” Her abstracted landscapes situate radiant notes of color in combinations and contrasts that invite the viewer to bask in their invigorating atmosphere. Her vivacious signature collages, made from found packaging and acrylic manipulated into a shallow bas relief space, likewise emphasize color and texture in layers that suggest a playful exploration of space.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery 

Fantagraphics Bookstore hosts the conclusion of the 3-day Kathy Acker in Seattle Symposium with an exhibition of works by Alice Wheeler, Louie RaffloerCharles Peterson, Megan Kelso, Ashleigh Talbot, and Cam Garrett with readings by Stacey Levine (live), Kathleen Hanna (via video). The late Kathy Acker’s residencies in Seattle in 1980 and 1989 were brief but important to the development of this influential author. While residing in Seattle’s Belltown arts community in 1980 she was completing work on her signature novel, Blood and Guts in High School, and beginning to write Great Expectations, which includes passages about her experiences here. She returned in 1989 for a residency sponsored by Seattle’s Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA), which inspired and gave momentum to the Riot Grrrl feminist movement.
