The resulting works showcase the artist’s signature iconography including exquisite weeds, “big dumb boots,”, potted shrubbery, flaming wigs, floating scaffolding, and mysterious silhouetted figures achieved by digital manipulation of a hand-drawn form and shape, further reworked by traditional painting and drawing techniques.

Through sanding, polishing, and painting, she creates sculptures with the quality of fabric, filled with movement and expressive quality. She then paints the sculptures with original patterns and geometric abstract shapes that are inspired by her research.  Her work is characterized by an interest in site specificity, socially committed history and current events. Open to the public during Art Attack. 1222 S Angelo St. Seattle, WA 98108

Elysian Brewing  Ellen Picken Untitled Mural is ongoing and on display on the outside of the tap room. This artwork embraces abstraction through an insistent rhythm of lines that evoke the worn grooves of a vinyl record being obsessively played until the scratches make it uniquely yours. The oscillation markings are like sound-waves. They look the way punk rock feels; disruptive, fast, loud… never losing momentum.

The Conservatory   is open during Art Attack with libations, coffee and rotating artists monthly.

studio e   In her latest solo show, Molly Magai continues to explore the world of highways and factories as intriguing, barely noticed peripheral spaces. The manmade structures, and increasingly important natural elements, are seen as if in motion, and often rendered in a near abstract gesture. Magai’s portraiture of nature, influenced by her fear of environmental collapse, grants her industrial landscapes a novel, introspective dimension.   Open late every 2nd Saturday from 6-9pm with Georgetown Art Attack

Bridge Productions is delighted to present In Time, a solo show of work by Portland artist Patrick Kelly. Patrick Kelly’s ongoing series of graphite drawings recall objects found in the natural world such as geological rock formations, hematite, or obsidian. Their layering is a laborious process of hand-drawn overlapping lines describing various jagged gestures to build up the form. The resulting drawings play with and thwart the light in a pearlescent black mass; creating the illusion of a sculptural object in relief on flat, black paper.

Their compositions are built by layering, tiling, and kaleidoscoping forms, photographs, and blocks of color to create intricate, prismatic facsimiles of our world. The reality of these new worlds mimics our own, but reveals something surreal or previously unseen. As a result, they gather together to form an analogous and complementary duo.
