ActivSpace April Artist Ariel Rathbun

Ariel Rathbun

My creative arts training and expression has been primarily contemporary dance and physical theater. Being very kinesthetic I move intuitively into my big surface, it becomes a dance and then something else, you decide.
New to painting and utterly fascinated by the exploration process and mystery of this spontaneous adventure, I invite you to join the journey, see what you see of yourself .
I have been a student of Mary Tudor much of 2009, who said I was “having a love affair with color”, how delightful is that? Try painting, find time to access the creative…you never know what’s going to emerge !

Brunette Mix April Artist Max Humphres

Conspicuous by Absence:
This work uses latex paint as a tool for drawing and painting. This is an exploration to further investigate how I can use latex as a tool for sculpture as well. These works are intended to be imitations. Common shapes reflecting graffiti and architecture, are used to create ambiguous spaces. Future work will explore the ties between the animal, and the graffiti artist. As of now, each has been explored individually through the work.

West Seattle Wine Cellars April Artist Tom Douglass

West Seattle Wine Cellars April Artist, Tom Douglass

Artist Statement: I have a long-standing fascination with the spontaneity of the simple snapshot. Candid when among friends, voyeuristic when a stranger is in front of the lens, the snapshot has an immediacy and intimacy not found in more formal photography. Derived from snapshots taken over several nights out, this series applies the deliberate process of painting to the near accidental images of the source. Whether it's evoking a mood, expressing a sense of time and place, or simply emphasizing an area of specific interest, each painting in this series attempts to capture and refine the core element that drew me to the original picture.

West Seattle Cellar's free wine tasting on Art Walk night will feature dry German Rieslings from the Mosel region. Sample an excellent array of these very food-friendly wines while you enjoy the t art of Tom Douglass.

ArtsWest April Show The Likeness of Form

Michelle Templeton’s work focuses around human gesture and shape derived from significant personal moments of her life. Templeton doubles as an editor for a University Psychology publication, and her fastidious observation of human behavior is essential to the scope of her work. She also brings these skills of perception to the canvas using paint and brush.

Janet Marcavage’s work addresses the properties of the body and current issues in genetics through printmaking, papermaking and installation. Using colored dots and embossing techniques similar to the visual display of molecular DNA coding, Marcavage expresses a correlation between the changes in science and how we see ourselves. Marcavage is also the assistant professor of Printmaking at the University of Puget Sound.

Fine Art Photographer, Nancy Angermeyer, draws from classical Greek form and surrealism for her inspiration. Angermeyer’s movement-based photographs are ethereal and sometimes eerie, but always beautiful representations of the human figure. Angermeyer is a native of Wisconsin and holds an MFA in painting from the University of Kentucky. Currently, she lives and works as an artist in Vancouver, BC.

Hotwire Coffee April Artist John Flemming


These assemblies represent a small portion of my larger Sign Language collection. Each piece is composed of multiple 2" squares cut from recycled traffic signs. The constructive process allows a scrambling and re-ordering of the original sign's message and purpose.

The Masks, like the construction of crossword puzzles slowly uncover a variety of characters and personalities. Some Masks are serious, others funny or sad. One uncovered that weasel-faced man from my re-occurring nightmare.

The Five x Five’s are purely abstractions, yet as abstractions they offer many possible stories and interpretations. At their core is the ‘RE’ story—Re-claim, Re-cycle, Re-interpret,
Re-examine, and Re-store.
