Jan Brown at Shoofly Pie

December 13 WSAW, 2012
Jan's work includes abstract paintings and photography. From the artist:
"I truly think it's important to find what you're passionate about in Life and just do it! When painting I like to use expressive abstraction and vibrant colors of magnitude so my paintings motivate dynamic energy and Life. The impact on the viewer will always vary in the art world ...My passion is to reach that place of inner peace and symbolic meaning to an individual."

Jonathan Kimball at Locol Barley and Vine

December 13 WSAW, 2012
"Salvaged from the fallen trees of the great Seattle ice storm of 2012, the collection of art for sale has been crafted and assembled over the past few months in Covington, WA. This concept of capturing small scenes of Aspen wilderness is something I've wanted to put together for a few years.  I'm very excited to finally have some pieces on display. I couldn't stand seeing all of this wood lying on the forest floor, so it's been recycled and finished for your viewing pleasure. The wood frames are made of pine. I rusted and painted the backdrops to add an industrial element to a a few pieces. With appropriate lighting, the depth of the frames allows beautiful shadows to fall on the walls. Finally, the copper deer is framed with reclaimed, whitewashed barn wood from the 1930's.
I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I enjoyed putting them together. This is the start of a collection that will evolve with each new volume. It's amazing what can be recovered, refined, and preserved from organic materials that would otherwise be left to whither and decompose."

Local Art Mart at Nature Consortium

December 13 WSAW, 2012

Buy Local this Holiday Season

Nature Consortium has made it easy and fun to support our local arts community this holiday season by hosting a “Local Art Mart” for one night only.  Join us during Art Walk for an evening full of live music, artists and good people.  Hope to see you there!
Allison Moore: Potter, tile-maker, and mold designer.
The press molded designs are used for embellishment of thrown pottery, as tiles, and in the creation of specialty items. Larger cast images often require further sculpting to make each one more lively and unique. Favorite subjects have been redesigned and improved upon over the years. Pond and forest life, creatures from the ocean, and ancient symbols are her favorite subjects. The work is fired in electric kilns, at the vitreous (water-proof) mid-range stoneware temperature of 'Cone 5', 2200 degrees F. The pottery is dishwasher and microwave safe.  Clays used: Porcelain and Stoneware.

Oleana Perry:  Beetle Shell Jewelry  
Add some glitter to your life by wearing  or giving these beautiful beetle shell earrings. Each shell is hand selected for its shine and amazing color and yes, they are the original color of the Jeweled Beetle.  Come and see the beauty that mother nature creates.

Rowan Mullan:  Felted hats, arm warmers and more
My business and life are aligned with nature - the cycles of the seasons, the plants in my garden, the wild and domestic creatures around me.  I create comfortable, wearable, functional art using a permaculture approach, emphasizing sustainability and re-use of natural fibers.

Bonnie Katz and Nicole Appell at Better Builders

December 13 WSAW, 2012

Bonnie Katz (owner, Fitness Together)

I’m excited to blend my love for fitness and the outdoors with my talent for art. Together I can capture my adventures while hiking, biking, climbing and rafting. Each subject matter is scattered with human emotion that reflect my state of being, and highlight some of life’s most difficult challenges both physical, and emotional.
"Aspen Forrest" 12"x12" oil on canvas

Nicole Appell
My art is about finding beauty and inspiration in life, every day. A native of the Pacific Northwest, I spend as much time as possible outdoors. I love exploring the wilderness and coasts of our region. Waterfalls, rivers, and coastal tides remind me of renewal and possibilities. I am fascinated by the play of light as it dances through branches and leaves and casts lovely images on the earth. The patterns and textures of tree bark, river rocks, and meadows find their way into the layers of my mixed media paintings.

These artworks represent the quiet pause that nature gives us, and my deepest gratitude for the few wilderness areas that are protected.

Chantelle Hartman at Heartland Cafe

December 13 WSAW, 2012

Chantelle Hartman: Bio

I completed my BA in Fine Arts at the Durban Institute of Technology in South Africa; and later completed my Post Graduate in Education at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. I am currently a teacher at The Berstchi School on Capitol Hill, where I teach the Extended Day Art Class.

I majored in sculpture with an emphasis on the traditional materials used by women. Examples of these materials include yarn, string, thread, fabric and sanitary linings

In regards to my practical work I focus on manipulating materials to convey messages and underlying tones through a visual expression. My work comments on the duality of the matriarch vs. the seductress

I have resided in Seattle for seven years now; this exhibit is a comment of my journey as a woman from Africa to America.

Sara Ketner Hunter at West Seattle Wine Cellars

December 13 WSAW, 2012

Artist reflections:
As I grew up living in the Tacoma-Seattle area, I was inspired to capture my thoughts and experiences, always using a sketch book or journal. It wasn’t until I was in design school that I discovered painting as a more complete expression of my inner self. My immediate love was the ability to mix colors in the medium of acrylics and I took advantage of what I could do with a paint brush on canvas.
I use the acrylics to create layers with which to tell my story, using the paint to lead you to the depth where the mind’s eye dwells. Since 2000 I’ve been trying to express myself through my art and define who I am on canvas — abstract, daring but still beautifully interesting. I recreate the visions of my mind with my own brew of colors and textures, inviting my audience to communicate with me and express what they see.

Wine Cellar reflections:This month's Art Walk just happens to fall on the night of one of our most popular tastings of the year: Port. Nothing warms the soul on long, dark, winter nights like a good Port, and we'll be pouring a beautiful selection of tawnies and rubies for all to sample. It's a great opportunity to taste, learn, and pick up a few bottles, whether for gifts or to keep you and your friends toasty and happy over the holidays.
