Flora Carlile-Kovacs @ The Building

January 8, 2015

Flora Carlile-Kovacs will have her studio, within The Building, open during tonights Art Walk. Stop by and check out her beautiful creations.


Artist Statement:

Nemez is the Hungarian word for an ancient textile proces using wool fibers, water, and vigorous kneading, the end product being a durable, unwoven material: felt.


I knew I had found my medium and perhaps my life's profession as well when, after long experimentation, I began to recognize what possibilities working with wool holds in terms of surface textures, densities and colors, in both two and three dimensions. I experimented with different grades and qualities of wool and various processes, from the soft, magical silk-and-merino layers of nunofilc to the hard, durable traditional raw-wool nemez and its modern applications. 

Felt-making is painting and sculpture combined. The combinations of colors and the different qualities and applications of wool hold vast possibilities, and the textures, forms, and effects which can be obtained through the introduction of 'foriegn' materials (i.e: other textiles, organic materials, wire and metallic thread, beads, stones, etc.) are virtually endless. Felt as an expressive medium is conducive to an instinctive and spontaneous creative process for both beginners and veteran felters. 

My personal creative process is one of constant experimentation, and the gratification of creating beautiful objects is enhanced when I feel that others can appreciate these magical qualities and processes.

The Building is located at 4315 SW Othello St.

She started a line of functional ceramics as a small business in 1997 after studying with Carol Gouthro, and has worked with metal, oil paint, and acrylic paint over the years, but her medium of choice is beeswax.She learned a great deal from studying with Jef Gunn and Larry Caulkins at Pratt Fine Arts Center, and began teaching at Pratt using wax as an element in sculptural collage with Rickie Wolfe. Encaustic has been her focus for the last ten years. It is the one medium that affords all the other materials she has worked in to overlap and inform one another.

Christina Miglino @ Locöl Barley & Vine

January 8, 2015

Christina Miglino is a Washington native. She started off as a dancer, actor, and choreographer in New York, and San Francisco. In SF, she coined her name, conjuremovement, as a title for anything she made performance or otherwise. Eventually, her work became much more visually focused. Christina believes that, "There is no performance without the observer just as their is no visual art without the same." The audience is vital to the work.


In general her work is 2nd, 3rd, and 57th chances... It's about meditating on the human experience, those unconscious threads. And, spinning new life into the old or discarded.


This show is called, "face's face," which comes from a stupid joke some of my friends and I used to say. " in your face's face." It makes me think of the mirrored self and all we can learn from looking into our own eyes. Why not?

Locöl Barley & Vine is located at 7902 35th Ave SW

Tim Cross & Mugi Takei @ Arts West

January 8, 2015

Big Little Self
Tim Cross & Mugi Takei
Nov 20, 2014 - Jan 10, 2015
“My little self can only make artworks to resolve the distance between my imagination and what I can never touch.” 
Tim Cross
“I longed for intimacy with and within everything and anything. I wanted to see each and every microscopic structure of being. I wanted to see through my lover’s eyes into his soul. I wanted to see cells breathing in plants. Ultimately, I wanted to see something I couldn’t see. Slowly within me those kinds of urges disappeared and something lighter took over.” 
Mugi Takei

Tim Cross’s large scale (in the range of 5 – 8 feet) works are created by transferring Laser and Xerox prints to silk using matte medium. Imagery suggestive of 1970’s sci-fi rocket ship parts, water, the surface of the moon, and abstract shapes and patterns reverberate off each other in compositions that function more as paintings than collages. 

Mugi Takei’s watercolor paintings, too, seem to transcend their materials; the bodies of color read more like earth, blood, and water than they do pigments from a tube. Girls with swollen bellies lie submerged under oceans and commune with human-sized plant beings covered in thousands of quivering hairs. Both artists make work from a place of acknowledging and questioning the size and shape of their own selves in the face of what they perceive is possible.

George Perrou @ Click! Design That Fits

January 8, 2015

New work by George Perrou at Click!




Inspired by mid-century animation, George Perrou's 'Mod-Culture' art gives nods to Miro, Kandinsky and Calder.

1st Quarter Art Walk - 2015

January 4, 2015

Welcome to another year of West Seattle Art Walk. We look forward to seeing everyone out and about this coming Thursday. Check out the new postcard and walking map now.





Bill Reiswig & Andy McConnell @ Windermere

December 11, 2014

Windermere is excited this December to welcome two West Seattle artists onto its walls, featuring the sumi-e ink and watercolor paintings of Bill Reiswig and framed wood sculpture of Andy McConnell. 


Our December Artwalk also features a Pop-Up Holiday Sale featuring the work of 6 other artists: Photography from Holli Margell, fire-etched wood scultpures and ornaments from Toni Wells, sculpture, drawings and jewelry from Noelle Congdon, paintings from Jennifer Carrasco.

All this, and we will feature wines from highly-regarded Charles Smith Winery!

Bill Reiswig’s sumi-e ink and watercolor paintings on wood panels are a departure from the printwork he usually focuses on. They are of northwest landscapes and animal-life and use ink and sparing color on handmade paper that has been attached to wood panels.



Bill’s statement:


My use of sumi-e ink and watercolor this winter is an desire to get away from the very planned work of wood-block printmaking. In these paintings I am focused on the wet-in-wet movement of ink on the paper in the mist, clouds, waters, landscapes and vegetation of Washington. I am interested in the connection in Japanese art between sumi painting and woodblock prints and in the next year I aim to use sumi-e ink paintings as the basis of new woodblock work. 



Andy McConnell’s series of painted wood sculptures was inspired by the desire to create something beautiful from the interesting scrap lumber he intercepts as a carpenter.




Andy’s statement:


(One) summer, I took a week off from work to incorporate my trove of scrap into my art (usually egg tempera on flat Masonite). After a week, I had several wine boxes filled with small, painted wood and had hit a creative dead end. Frustrated, I started messing around with a piece of wood I had rejected because it had split apart..... and then I was on to something! So typical of life and art; the value and beauty hides in places we reject or don't notice.


This series was heavily influenced by my friend, the Northwest poet, Robert Sund's "Blanket Paintings." ​

Karin Bolstad and Clare Johnson @ The Gatewood Bed & Breakfast

December 11, 2014

The Gatewood Bed & Breakfast is excited to feature the artwork of Karin Bolstad and Clare Johnson for December Art Walk. 


Statement from Karin:
 
My artwork is primarily figurative, and my current favorite mediums are acrylic painting, icon writing and mixed media. My process is to find a vintage photo or postcard to use as a model, and then embellish the painting with antique papers, fabrics, jewelry, bits of nature: anything that catches my fancy. Some of my favorite artists (and influences) are Gustav Klimt, Amedeo Modigliani, Kay Nielson, Michael Sowa, Mercer Mayer, and Edward Gorey.




Clare Johnson is from Seattle in the Pacific Northwest of the US. Her creative work is much influenced by a sense of longing for the landscapes and moods of home. She is the eldest of three daughters and close to her family. She likes to walk and swim, thrives on exploring old buildings and is happiest when in the rain or underwater.

Statement from Clare:


The fact that we can only exist in one time and place is both an ordinary truth and a tragic one. We inevitably lose loved ones, have to live away from friends, see landscapes change, wish we could relive some great day.


My work is a futile yet sincere attempt to locate and recover these lost things. It tries to let us exist again with what has slipped away, hovering between now and then. Persistent themes include memory, absence, growing up, fragmentation, nostalgia, and in-betweenness.


I am inspired by the experience of reading a book, whereby one can be alone but feel the presence of other people's thoughts and experiences - and can even, in a limited way, transcend physical location. I also look to the idea of a band-aid or plaster, a profoundly ordinary object that both identifies a wound and acts as a healing attention to it.


My art should operate like both of these things - vividly depicting an absent time, place or person without ever fully recovering it, soothing our perpetual losses by mourning them.


The Gatewood Bed & Breakfast is located at 7446 Gatewood Rd SW

Hannah Diamond @ Cupcake Royale

December 11, 2014

Hannah Diamond grew up in an artistic environment with her father being a florist and sketch artist, and her grandmother being a painter. From an early age, she loved to draw and paint. If she had a paper and pen or pencil in her hand, she was drawing! As she grew older she developed a talent for pen and ink drawings, which is her favorite form of artistic expression. The variety of artwork that is on display is all done with pen and ink.

Hannah is a native of Seattle, Washington and finds great inspiration in the Pacific Northwest. She will be doing live art work in store during the December Art Walk.

Cupcake Royale is located at 4556 California Ave SW

Cariña Booyens @ The Office Junction

December 11, 2014


 
Cariña Booyens, born 1977, studied at University of Tshwane, South Africa where she received her Bachelors in Fine Arts in 2000. She later worked as Project Manager, Project Assistant and Curriculum and Logistics Assistant to the Director of the Market Photo Workshop in Johannesburg until she immigrated to the United States. 


Negotiating the enigmatic pleasures of the ‘new world’ brought her to an accidental exploration of acrylic paint and the act of losing herself in time and space. The birth of Sparkly/Shiny was quite serendipitous.

Since discovering the amazing reflective qualities of sparkly paint Cariña has become captivated with iridescence and shifting luminescence within a painting. The constant surprises of how the paintings become more than just her creation, it becomes its own being. The new owner of the painting will learn much more of the paintings personality than the maker.

Her current work focuses on the expression of the internal landscape which finds its vocabulary in Nature. In this body of abstract paintings she develops a visual language which describes a world which is seen with the emotional eye. The work springs forth as a spontaneous flow of movement that dances against a neutral but rich background that both anchors and frees the shapes that appear on it. The images are uninhibited expressions of what the artists has come to know as “flow”.

The Office Junction is a Coworking/shared office space in West Seattle. Coworking is about making the personal choice to work along side other people instead of isolation. It's a powerful and exciting way to work. We offer access for a day per week to a full time, fixed desk, host social events and meetups for freelancers, small business owners and entrepreneurs and are located just one block north of Morgan Junction on California Ave.

The Office Junction is located at 6040 B California Ave SW

Jeanne Waters @ West Seattle Cellars

December 11, 2014



Jeanne Waters studied art at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles
where folk art was the style that permeated the art department. She traveled to Mexico on a trip with her painting class and eventually made Mexico her home where she lived and worked for 23 years.

She studied ceramics at the Institute of Design and Visual Art and textiles at the National Institute of Fine Art, both located in Mexico City, then moved to Xalapa, Veracruz where she worked in ceramic workshops and continued to paint in acrylics and mixed media. Waters showed her work in one-person shows and also national juried shows in different cities in Mexico, and also in Cuba, Korea, and the USA during that time. The Carillo Gil Museum in Mexico City, one of Mexico City’s leading museums, has pieces of hers in their collection, and she will be showing at the prestigious Museum of Anthropology in Xalapa. She illustrated four children’s books in Mexico, two of which she wrote.

Waters returned to the USA in 1992 and established J&J Studios with her husband Jim Halvorson. They invite musicians and other artists to show with them each year at their studio and actively participate with shows in Seattle.

Waters combines airbrushing with acrylics in her paintings. She did a 14-foot mural, I Go through the Night with Tiburi in this style, and also five 7-foot panels, Suenos de Amor, for her daughter Sara Robledo's band, Roble de Agua.

This month’s Art Walk night just happens to be the night of our annual Port tasting. Just in time for the holidays! Come by and sample our tasty and varied line-up of Ports this Thursday, from 5:30 to 9:00, while you enjoy the artwork of Jeanne Waters.

Susan Cole @ Windermere

November 13, 2014

​​Kim Tingley Realtor with Windermere is proud to present Susan Cole as the featured artist for November.



Susan Cole bio:

I had a dear friend once tell me if I ever had the chance I should visit Seattle. He thought I’d really like it. He really underestimated me!

Seattle and the Pacific Northwest have so much to offer for the nature lover as well as the urban city dweller. This series of images, Standing Still: Moments in the Pacific Northwest, are captured moments where I felt moved to bring not only what I saw but also what I felt to an image.

With each photo or pairing there is a short description of the circumstances surrounding the creation of the image(s).

Karin Bolstad & Clare Johnson @ The Gatewood Bed & Breakfast

November 13, 2014

The Gatewood B&B is presenting the work of Karin Bolstad and Clare Johnson for November Art Walk.


Karin received a Bachelor’s Degree in Illustration and Design from Western Washington University in 1994, and since then has worked both as a freelance illustrator and designer and as an in-house illustrator and designer (among other things including, but not limited to: waitress, childcare provider, saucier, assistant manager of a spa, assistant manager of an herbal remedy retail store, oh and so many more random jobs). These days she has abandoned the world of illustration and design and spends her time being a mom, but when she has a free moment, you’ll find her in her studio on Whidbey Island WA, pursuing fine art.

The series featured at The Gatewood this month is based on her high school obsession with Zebra Gothic Romance Novels, all which had a cover depicting a woman running in terror from some sort of foreboding structure that had one light on. It's her own fun take on that. But her ladies are not so much terrified as kind of terrifying in their own right


Clare Johnson is from Seattle in the Pacific Northwest of the US. Her creative work is much influenced by a sense of longing for the landscapes and moods of home. She is the eldest of three daughters and close to her family. She likes to walk and swim, thrives on exploring old buildings and is happiest when in the rain or underwater.

The influence that children and children's books have on her work can be seen in her exploration of childhood memory and playfulness. Music also impacts her art and writing. Johnson listens to music whilst she paints and has hosted eclectic radio-shows. After dividing her time between Seattle, USA and Cambridgeshire, England for several years she now lives full-time in Seattle.

The Gatewood Bed & Breakfast is located at 7446 Gatewood Rd SW

Jake Millett @ Happy Family Health & Wellness

November 13, 2014

 
Jake is 26 years old and born and raised in the Columbia City neighborhood of South Seattle. He currently works as the assistant to the artist Peter Millett. Duties include the fabrication of steel and wood sculptures. He loves the great outdoors, sailing and swimming in Lake Washington, playing soccer and basketball, surfing, eating good food with his family and friends, and the Seahawks.

Artist Statement: 
I approach painting as an experience. Each line depends on the one that was laid down before it, improvisation is a part of the process. The finished product is a result of how and what I was feeling while creating the piece. From a distance they appear precise and possibly even computer generated, but when studied closely one can see that they are human after all, and it is the imperfections that make them beautiful.
Happy Family Health & Wellness is located at 5400 California Ave SW., Suite F
