Styling Studio November Artist Tarsha Rockowitz


Originally from Maine, Seattle resident Tarsha Rockowitz is an artist
and freelance graphic designer. As is evident in her bold, yet
intricate body of work, she is inspired by nature's patterns, colors
and all of its strange inhabitants. She believes that art does not
always have to be overly conceptual and instead creates simple works
of pure eye-candy. She enjoys brightening the world with her vivid
color palettes and stylized subject matter. In addition to painting,
she can also be found combining the art of hand-embroidery with
screenprinting and has recently been trying her hand at her new love,
metalsmithing.

More of her work can be viewed at: www.varinia.com
and www.trockowitz.etsy.com

ArtsWest November Show I Am/I Am Not a Woman



Chamberlain’s colorful oils on textured canvas and hemp combine visual representations of the contemporary sensual woman alongside spiritual notions from artistic cultures of the east. Pasties paired with an androgynous figure clothed only in gold and sapphire striped thigh highs are Chamberlain’s exploration of a sacred playfulness in contemporary life.

Siege paints expressionist images of women, with lascivious details obscured, furtively positioned within typography, graphs, fabric and found objects such as broken cassette tape cartridges, razor blades and spark plug boxes. He describes the female form as “the most powerful shape in the world.” A passionate internal confrontation between this adoration and a refusal to recreate the centuries of abuses of the female form is palpable within the many brilliant layers of his work. Both Siege and Chamberlain are graduates of Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA.

Video artist Susie J. Lee presents a playful flapper singing and dancing for her viewer. Her work explores the intersection of experience and memory. Lee was awarded a Bachelors of Science in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University and a Masters in Education at Columbia University. She received her MFA at the University of Washington. She is represented by Seattle’s Lawrimore Project and Galleria Tiziana Di Caro in Italy.

Join us on November 12 from 6-7:30pm for wine, hors d’oeuvres and conversation at the opening reception with the artists in I Am / I Am Not Woman.

Cupcake Royale November Artist Erin Shafkind



"Growing up in Los Angeles, with a single mom, McDonald’s every Tuesday, and lots of television I have been greatly influenced by popular culture and modern mythology. I always felt that there was something else, something intangible that I needed, but more and more I wonder if this is a product of growing up in American Corporate culture that strived to create illusion so we would consume. Do I know what I want? What makes me happy?

In this show I am sharing a few photographs and several objects made from 1/4” birch plywood. Spinning off the idea of the flat image I am trying to create something fun yet iconic, therefore potentially mythic and even sacred. Each wood piece is editioned to 11, the idea of repetition hopefully pushing the boundaries of the machine. Yet all are hand cut and drawn and are objects that I find to be truly beautiful."

ActivSpace November Artist Devrim Ozkan


Devrim was raised splitting her time between Las Vegas, NV and Istanbul, Turkey before moving to Seattle to finish her B.A. in Visual Arts from the University of Washington. She attributes much of the organic nature and patterns that appear in her work to the Native art of the Southwestern desert as well as the intricate designs that dominate Turkish culture.

Typically, Devrim works in mixed media, with a strong tendency towards mono-typing and oil painting. She is versed in ceramics, photography, sculpture (plaster, wire, wax, wood and clay), weaving, jewelry and installations. Her motivations for moving color are instinct based and rooted from the many memories she has acquired throughout her journeys. She believes visual art is an instinctive method of internal showcasing.

C&P Coffee November Artist Jennifer Nerad


C & P Coffee Company welcomes painter Jennifer Nerad. “There is something archetypical about the natural landscape and human interaction with it. It is as if the answers lie just beyond that line of trees or those rows of waves, and if we stare long enough it will reveal itself in full. My hope is to create this sort of intimate connection with the viewer, a step closer to understanding. I seek to evoke that feeling of looking out into the sea: one of wistful contemplation, introspection, and general peacefulness. “ www.jennifernerad.com

Feedback Lounge November Event ZZ Top Documentary


West Seattle Filmmaker Jamie Chamberlin’s second ZZ Top-related
documentary was released Oct. 20. The 2-DVD set, “Double Down Live,”

behind-the-scenes footage. The film will be screened at the Feedback
Lounge Thursday night, Nov. 12, 7pm and again at 10pm, in conjunction

Chamberlin filmed the hour-long Disc 2 last year while he toured with
ZZ Top across the United States and Europe. They perform 11 songs on
Disc 2, including “Jesus Just Left Chicago,” “I’m Bad, I’m
Nationwide,” “La Grange,” “Hey Joe,” and “Tush.”

“I shot close to 70 shows over the course of 2008, 95-percent shot on
one camera,” said Chamberlin, who attended Vancouver Film School and
met Billy Gibbons while producing rock segments for Fox-TV. Chamberlin
also filmed “Billy F Gibbons: Rock + Roll Gearhead,” based on four
days with the ZZ Top band leader.

Bird on a Wire November Artist Zach Bohnenkamp


Zach was born beside the railroad tracks in Iowa City. He spent most of his childhood in a tunnel beneath the very tracks upon which his first blood spilled. An adventurer by birth rite, he first reached the Gulf of México at age 7 on a raft he fashioned from lilac branches.

For the last 10 years Zach has called Seattle home but the rich black soil of his homeland still remains between his toes, where morel mushroom grow to this day.

He is currently printing out of Print Zero Studios in Georgetown and making murals with the crew Matamuros in Seattle.

Artist: Lucie LaMaine

Medium: Acrylic Paint, Mica Flakes, Glass Bead Gel, Molding Paste, Organic Paper, Netting, Glitter and Nail Polish on Canvas and Wood.
I have spent many years in the Northwest loving the forest and the sea, from shopping at the Public Market to boating in the San Juan’s and camping in the Hoh rain forest. I’ve faced challenges like commercial fishing in Alaska, losing my direction in the woods, and fearing the unseen but heavy breathing Sasquatch.
People want to know what motivates me as an artist. Why do I create? I create because I am able to communicate with others and express my deep thoughts and feelings. My focus is to paint images that evoke emotion, tell a story, amuse people and make the ordinary extraordinary. I want to bring light and color into a world of dark images and reflect on the creation of life in the Northwest.

Hotwire Coffee November Artist Todd Martin

I was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington and has been a lover of animals since he was a small child.
After high school I Studied Design. I also studied radio broadcasting independently, and hosted a radio program at WWU. I traveled to Thailand to discover the riches of the jungle, and that opened my eyes to the adventures of photography. For many years I have been involved in the design and sales, and have been featured in such newspapers as the Everett Herald and in 2008 was featured in a Christmas special on HGTV. I work in many types of media, but really enjoy photography. I have been a West Seattle Resident for 9 years.

The show: “Head Shots, if animals were celebrities”, is based on the idea of what it would be like if the paparazzi chased animals instead of celebrities. While I do not claim to be the greatest photographer in the world, I do believe I can connect with the animals on film. I do not just take random shots. I wait for them to happen. Whenever I take a walk with friends and I take my camera I can hear a sigh of despair….”I thought we were going for a walk”.
Besides photography I enjoy working with non profits. For this show I have partnered with the Woodland Park Zoo, and will donate 25 percent of the proceeds to their good works. I also like designing holiday décor and sometimes consider myself the John Waters of Christmas. I take a holiday theme and stretch it as far as I can go, many times searching for hours and days for items exclusively for this matter.
