Keller Williams April Artists Ben Scherer and Kristy Logan with Catering by Emerald Cove













BEN SCHERER
Photography

Ben Scherer’s passion for photography is clear through his work. His preferred style is often black and white with highlights, shadows, and contrast; usually with little to no editing. He particularly loves taking photos of the everyday things people walk by, but give little notice to; buildings, signs, reflections.

KRISTY LOGAN
Jewelry

Kristy began her career in public relations working with talent, entertainment, and travel destination clients. From there, she segued into television development. Six years ago, she started a side business of making jewelry. Within a short time, Kristy’s sales volume demanded her full time attention.

Emerald Cove Catering comes to you through the vision of two culinary professionals, Freddie Detore II and James Privette, who met while working at the famous Seattle restaurant; Palisades. Their specialty is Pacific Northwest cuisine with Asian and Mediterranean influences.

ArtsWest Artist Panel During Art Walk

ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery announces Artist Panel
“The Value Of Nothingness”
April 8, 7:30 pm in collaboration with the exhibition: contemplating nothingness

ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery announces the panel discussion “The Value of Nothingness”, a free event open to the public on Thursday, April 8th at 7:30pm. Gallery Director, Nichole Dement, explains that “the discussion will explore the current trends in art making, buying and collecting.” In the current economy funding for the arts has decreased dramatically, as have art sales. Conversely, this past February brought the highest art purchase on record at an auction for Alberto Giacometti’s , The Walking Man I. The sculpture sold for a cool $104 million, barely beating the 2004 record of $104.2 million for a 39” x 40” Picasso. “This panel discussion is for artists and art-lovers alike, who are interested in learning about new art market trends and how they relate to this tricky economic climate,” Dement states.

Deborah Paine, City of Seattle curator, and Michael Alhadeff, art advocate and avid collector, will be among the panelist speakers. Both Paine and Alhadeff will discuss current buying trends and various motivations for purchases and acquisitions.

The conversation will also include the participation from abstract artists, Jane Emens, Akiko Kino and Maxine Mattson, three of the featured artists from Contemplating Nothingness, currently showing at ArtsWest.

Shoofly Pie March Artist Zoya Naskova


Zoya Naskova
Photography
http://ZoyaNaskova.com

I do not remember when I took my first photograph.
The first camera I used was my dad’s Zorkiy, a
Russian 35 mm. Some years later when I moved to
the US I took photography courses and enjoyed
printing my own black and white. Since my family
presented me with a digital NIKON a couple of years
ago,
I have been exploring digital photography. In any shape and form, I believe that photography has
changed me and made me a better person.

Feedback Lounge March Artist Scott Cahill


Scott Cahill Rude is a native Seattlite who returned home

perspective of our city; a unique and fascinating view of the place that
we all know and love. Scott uses very low-tech equipment, his pictures
are presented as he saw them. His use of water and light reflection
shows the world as he sees it; this is Seattle through his eyes.

Windermere March Artist Robert Hardgrove

Robert Hardgrave : Local Seattle Artist!
My paintings are meditations on the unpredictability of life. Despite all the information we are given, I believe much is unknown to us in the moment, with clarity only achieved upon later reflection. My working process parallels this belief. There is never an overall plan or formula in my work, but allowing the imagery to manifest itself, it becomes an exercise in movement and a dedication to discovery. It is about the excitement in each evolving moment in life be it minute or grand and savoring it.


Join Kim the 2nd Thursday of every month for the West Seattle Artwalk. Stop by Windermere, pick up a map, have a snack and a bev. and enjoy a wonderful community event! Hope to see you soon!

Funky Janes March Artist Jersey Girl


Capturing life’s moments...

It started when my father gave me his old 35mm Canon a few years back. The way I saw the world changed. I was no longer just seeing life pass by me in a moving sense but began to see life in still frames.

Capturing the moment


The irony is that change and movement can exist in a still frame.
How life has been so different here but yet so the same.

San Pellegrino and TJ's chocolate butter cookies will be offered ...as well as postcards with postage paid

Wallflow March Artists Jennifer Mercede, Elena Cronin & Betsy Levine


"Three Faces" by artists Jennifer Mercede, Elena Cronin, and Betsy LeVine.

Jennifer Mercede, an artist originally from the east coast is inspired by graffiti, color combinations and little kids art.

Excerpt from Elena Cronin's artist statement:
A large portion of my recent work centers around a first-person perspective of my own body. This concept is something that is rarely seen in art, even though any second-person rendering automatically detaches both the artist and the viewer from the artist's true perspective.

Excerpt from Betsy Levine's artist statement:
This show started as a celebration of the children I met in Fiji this summer while leading a community service trip. They ran through the village calling everybody mother, and their laughter rang in my ears the whole month. I loved capturing their faces on film and later on the canvas.

Hotwire March Artist Patrick Robinson


I've been taking pictures ever since my brother handed me a camera when I was twelve. I've shot with every film format you can think of and then I went on to do other things only really buying my first serious digital camera three years ago. I look for light, color and mystery if I can find it but I love great images. Working for my family and the Robinson Newspapers has given me an opportunity to not only document our community for the West Seattle Herald but keeps a camera in my hands so when I see a chance to make a good photograph, I'm prepared.
