Robert McCauley / Smith & Vallee Gallery


Stop Making Sense, 2011 by Robert McCauley

I love fall. It makes me want to pop into my car and get out of town for a drive in the country. Well what luck because Smith & Vallee Gallery is having a great opening tomorrow night up in Edison.

Robert McCauley will be returning to Skagit Valley for "Refusing to Only Paint", a series of new fantastical paintings populated with bears, fish and goats.
"Constantly colliding different worlds, such as land and sea, man and beast, wildlife and machine, McCauley draws on larger themes of humankind's impact on nature."
Artist reception: 10/1, 5-8pm

International artist Carolina Silva (represented locally by Lawrimore Project) was selected as Seattle University's 2011-2012 Visual Artist in Residence. Through the end of 2011, she'll be in her campus studio making work and opening up the process of art-making to the students of SU. I was lucky enough to participate in this program back in 2009 and the Artist Salons I hosted were some of my most favorite art experiences to date.

Tomorrow evening, Carolina will give a lecture about her work which, "...uses drawing, sculpture, and installation bring to light the secrets and the unspeakable in surreal tableau’s and images, that takes the ordinary into the fantastic." More info here. Keep up to date on related events at the SUVAIR blog.

Seacat is here!

cover of Seacat

Seacat, short for Seattle Catalog, is a brand new mail-order catalog for art. Starting as just an idea between Gretchen Bennett, Wynne Greenwood and Matthew Offenbacher back in 2010, Seacat now exists in a physical format.

Seacat

But it's also more than just a 'zine; Seacat exists as a non-physical gallery (or a gallery with a micro-footprint of only 93.5 unfolded square inches), connecting artists with collectors. Seacat is also a grant (more details), funded with 25% of all catalog sales. The more art that gets purchased, the larger the grant grows.

Inclusions feel thoughtful and there are lots of surprises. Prices range from $10 for the latest issue of ONG ONG (a great local 'zine going back several years) up to $8500 for Andy Fallat's Plate Spinning Machine. Here are the 35 items currently available for sale.


Seacat

The catalog is on a thin newsprint that reminds me of reading comics as a kid and thumbing through the back pages, looking for cool things to blow my allowance on. And there are lots of things that I want to spend my money on in here! Claude's Beaver, Wynne's Tired Pebbles, Clyde Peterson's Pillowcases, Dawn's Frye Guy flag, Gretchen's Maple Turner, or Matt's video game to start.

Their goal is publish a new catalog 3 times a year. While their tagline might be "This doesn't change everything", it sure seems pretty damn cool.

Prospects / Steele Gallery


installation shot of Prospects

You might want to add a stop by the Steele Gallery at Gage Academy on your list of things to do this evening. Prospects, a rumination on the Northwest, opens tonight at 6pm.
"Tucked away in the corner of the United States, the Pacific Northwest offers a unique landscape that provides unending inspiration to the artists of this region. Tied to this landscape are also historical stories of pioneers and exploration that founded the cities and cultures we know today."
paper and wool installation, detail, by Allyce Wood

I love shows like this and it's got a super solid line-up with artists like Justin Colt Beckman, Matt Browning, Eli Hansen, Whiting Tennis, Brad Winchester, and Allyce Wood. And, for what I think is the first time in the 3 years she's been curating at the gallery, Lauren Klenow will have some of her own work on display. Shaun Scott will be screening clips of his film, Seat of Empire: Seattle since 1909. More details here.

[[TROPHY]] at Hedreen Gallery


Josephine's Echopraxia

Hedreen Gallery's year long experiment will be concluding in grand fashion this Saturday night. Each quarter, HOUSE SYSTEMS has a different focus and Night Club has been exploring some powerful stuff.
"Covens. Basements, and the stairs to get to them. Low visibility. Underground(s). Nightgames. Social Survival. Photoluminescence. Body Awareness. Magic that is a deception. Minimal commitments. Circles of trust. Sometime before dawn. Liminal states. Floor mats, gaffers tape, alcohol, bed sheets. New-age homeopathy. Social Camouflage. The thrill of recognition."
Bring your flashlight because it sounds like things might get spooky. Josephine's Echopraxia (Marissa Rae Niederhauser), along with a cast of collaborators, will present [[Trophy]], a dance/sculpture/video performance that "...explores issues of gender hierarchy, identity erosion, and the use optical tricks to suggest dismemberment of the female form in art." The evening has several components (dance, film, creepy music dance party) and ends with a sleepover (you're all invited!) and Alfred Hitchcock movie marathon. The first part of the evening is a tour (leaving from Hedreen Gallery) so please arrive closer to 7:45.

You can find all the details here. And as always, it's free.

I can't believe it's been a year since HOUSE SYSTEMS began. A big thank you and congratulations to co-curators Jessica Powers and Whitney Ford-Terry for putting together such an amazing year of programming. Next up for the Hedreen Gallery? All Things Equal with new SAM Director, Catharina Manchanda.

Saint Genet Presents Transports of Delirium

image via Saint Genet

I ran into Ryan Mitchell, co-founder of Implied Violence, at the Stranger Genius Awards last week. I love hearing him talk about his upcoming projects. When Ryan promises booze, blood, fog, Whip its and shit, he's not kidding around.

His new experimental performance/visual art group Saint Genet, will collaborate with NKO, Olivier Wevers, Jessie Smith, Casey Curran, and Anna Telcs, the Implied Violence Body Politic and members from BOOM! Theater Company to present a series of Aesthetic Declarations.
"This project was developed while in residence in Mighty Tieton and traces both the direct narrative truth of the hysteria surrounding The Manson Trials, Jean Genet's biography, and the last moments of The Jonestown Tragedy. Altered states combat demanding psychological modes of being; cracking the narrative open and revealing the impossible poetic act wherein hysteria resides."

Image via Saint Genet

This Friday, Saint Genet will kick off their initial performance, First Conversion: Aphoria.
"Begins the ritual within the shell of what was once The Lawrimore Project creating ephemeral images that incite impossible poetic actions from exhausted and drug induced performers, slowly creating (re-creating) a sacred space, revealing beautiful and disturbing images of sexual power and abjection stretched to the breaking point of sustainability. These images act as the primary focus of this piece and are supported by musicians and sound engineers Garek Von Druss, Paurl Walsh, Jeff Huston, and Daniel Salo inducing the audience into altered states though subliminal and hypnotic musical scores taken from The People's Temple."

Islands by Susanna Bluhm & Cable Griffith


We Got High Hats and Loud Claps in Every Mix, 2011 by Susanna Bluhm

My review of Islands, currently on view at SOIL through, is now up over at New American Paintings Blog. The last day to see the show is October 1st.
For SOIL‘s latest show, Islands, Seattle artists Susanna Bluhm (NAP #53, 67, 91) and Cable Griffith are creating mystical terra firma. Strange, new islands, populated with references to Guston, early video games, and feminism, are all tied together with a unified of palette of blues, greens and grays. Where Griffith is tight and controlled, Bluhm is loose and expansive. I’m quite sure at night, the two shows whisper across the gallery to each other, “You complete me.” - Joey Veltkamp, Seattle Contributor

PUNCH Gallery / Winner Takes All

Bear by Justin Gibbens

One of the most surprising things I've learned from being a member of SOIL this past year is just how much work it takes to keep a gallery running. I can't even begin to imagine how much extra work it would be to run a gallery in one city but live in another. And yet, somehow PUNCH Gallery (whose core membership lives outside of Seattle), has been successfully doing it for the past 5+ years.

by Curtis Erlinger

I'm surprised that I haven't blogged about their annual fundraiser, Winner Takes All, yet. (Most likely, I blocked it due to not winning last year when I had erroneously convinced myself I had the winning ticket.) You can see the whole show online. I, of course, am in love with Justin Gibbens' bear. And I really love this series from Curtis Erlinger. And Bill Finger's unsettling photographs of dioramas are always great. The winner is getting an especially great haul this year.

by Bill Finger

Each $10 donation you make gets you an entry to win the entire show. Increase your chances by purchasing several entries (up to 500 chances will be sold) while supporting one of Seattle's most beloved galleries.

Susie Lee / Swimming the List


image via Susie Lee
"Within a daily routine, we have access to creative spaces which are like fissures in time. This work presents these transitory and interstitial spaces juxtaposed within the span of a day. They are the stolen moments, scraps of paper, waiting in line, and our dozing dreams. As the day progresses, there are two lists generated: One is for the routine obligations where we buy, drive, cook, pay, work, pick up and start over again. The other is for the creative obligations; we observe, extract, mutate, expand, deviate, and linger." via
Finding the time to make art (or whatever your passion is) can be a daily challenge for many of us under the Arts umbrella. There are days when I just can't find time to squeeze it in and I'm single without children. Watching my friends with kids, I simply do not know how they're able to find the time. Susie Lee said that struggle was the spark for this piece.
It started with a conversation with the dancer at the end of 2009, in which she said, "I have two children now, and I don't know if I can find the time and studio practice to generate the material, but I really want to...I love to dance...but maybe I'm just not a dancer anymore..."
For 3 performances only (Fri/Sat eve, Sun matinee), the Susie Lee Ensemble will present a multidisciplinary performance which explores the ideas of artistic privilege, where creativity comes from and the conflict of real life versus the creative life. It will feature music by composer Emily Greenleaf, choregraphy by Ying Zhou and live digital drawings by Keeara Rhoades.

It sounds like it's going to wonderfully inspiring.

MEMES / Vignettes (off-site)


the original?

It's no secret (or maybe it is) that my favorite decade was the 70s. The light just felt different--everyone was so golden and sun-kissed. Imagine a world populated with hair as beautiful as Klara's?

"Hang in there, baby" is the first motivational poster I remember seeing. So simple, a gentle reminder to everyone to just hang in there...something good is around the corner. This poster (or a variant on it) was everywhere in the 70s. Soon, the mimicry began. Some were cute, some were too cute, some weren't very PC, some are strange.

Tomorrow, Vignettes will be having a night one only offsite exhibition which will explore this type of cultural transmission known as a meme. ("A meme is an idea, behavior or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.").

Hilde Overbergh & Amy Yoes / CB1 Gallery

Voyeuristic Intentions, 2011 by Hilde Overbergh
Oil on canvas, image via CB1 Gallery

Will someone in LA please go see these shows at CB1 Gallery for me? Repositioning Basics is a painting show of abstracted spaces by Hilde Overbergh. Starting with a photograph, she removes most elements that give the viewer a sense of orientation creating new spaces in between representation and abstraction. This is the same thing I love in Susanna Bluhm's work, only she favors the natural over the architectural.

Input/Output, 2011 by Hilde Overbergh
Oil on linen, image via CB1 Gallery
"Overbergh’s paintings are the result of deconstruction of the physical reality; combining different realities to an entirely new, more abstract interpretation. Peeling away the layers of each image, the artist seeks to reduce it to its essence. Objects are separated from their original context, introduced into new settings, re-assembled but always return to the spatial relationship also seen in cubism. In so doing, the recognizable objects are deprived of their purpose and made non-functional." via
Table Conversations, 2011 by Hilde Overbergh

Light Lab by Amy Yoes
image via CB1 Gallery

For her first project in LA, artist Amy Yoes has created an ambitious architectural installation, Light Lab, which was built using "quasi-organic logic". It has the unsettling elements of an Escher drawing where spatial relationship don't make sense.

Light Lab by Amy Yoes
image via CB1 Gallery
"Much of Yoes’s work has explored the language of ornament, architecture, and the flux of the urban environment. In recent years, her investigations have centered on the geometric language of modernist and constructivist perspectives. Lineages and hierarchies morph into ideas that are new but retain some of the DNA of the original. The ongoing flow of historical alignments and social conduits illuminates new readings of style. References ricochet in a viewer’s mind, each unique and personal. The work is as much about what it does as about what it is." via

Light Lab by Amy Yoes

I also love this series by Yoes, featured in last year's show, "For Your Pleasure".

Both shows will be up through October 16th.

SuttonBeresCuller | To Be Determined


image via SuttonBeresCuller

I've been busy with other projects and not paying close attention and totally thought the SuttonBeresCuller To Be Determined was a one night only event. I wasn't able to post about it yesterday so I thought I missed my chance but someone just clued me in that last night was just the opener. It's also going on through Sunday. Tickets are $15 and I've heard great things about it. Here are some tips.

Folks are writing about last night's performance over at the OTB blog. Here's what Gretchen Bennett (and Steve Zielke) thought about it.

SuttonBeresCullter were recently named as one of 8 finalists for the 2011 Arts Innovator Award.

Friday night


Buoyancy, 2011 by

Tonight at Suyama Space, artist/architects Atherton and Kenner will debut their new installation, BUOYANCY.
Atherton and Keener...will create a continuous reflective surface suspended in equilibrium within the room, its form sculpted to maximize reaction to air movement. Through the deployment of wires and counterweights, the surface will be transformed into an instrument capable of tuning and operation. Experience of the room will be dependent on a range of known and unknown variables including sun position and cloud cover visible through the gallery’s skylights, temperature fluctuation, number of occupants, and use of the building.
The artist(s) reception is tonight from 5-7. There will also be a talk on Saturday at 2pm. BUOYANCY was a 2011 Graham Foundation Project recipient.

Also tonight, the 2011 Stranger Genius Awards. This year's visual art winner was DK Pan. The shortlist was comprised of Jenny Heishman, Sol Hashemi, Joe Park, Robert Yoder, and Whitney Ford-Terry & Jessica Powers. VIP from 7-9, general admission 9pm. Tickets are $10 at the door.

Also tonight, from 8-close, Vito's will be celebrating their one year anniversary. More details here.

Hearty congratulations to Jenny Heishman, recipient of SAM's 2011 Betty Bowen Award. Jenny was also a finalist back in 2009 when she received the PONCHO Special Recognition Award. The committee received 529 applicants this year and narrowed that down to the 5 finalists Michael Endo, Jenny Heishman, Lisa Liedgren, Marc Roder, and SuttonBeresCuller.

I believe the first show I saw by Jenny was Complexions back in 2007. I remember thinking the log was awesome (I still do along with the updated steel version she did for Vulcan hanging out in S. Lake Union). And I think I fell in love once I discovered she had done an entire series called, "Dolly Going Through My Mind". Her work takes the natural and tries to make it better, knowing that while it will lose its essence, it gains something new. If plastic flowers hadn't already been invented, Jenny would have invented them.
"Jenny Heishman grew up in Florida surrounded by theme parks, water flumes and golf courses. Nature was mimicked -- much of her world was a reconstruction of some other place's history and landscape.

She writes: "Because we enjoyed year-round warmth, we built the seasonal changes with plastic autumn leaves, artificial snow, and unspoken agreements. This environment taught me how to use objects to create a fabricated reality."" via
Jenny will have a solo show opening Oct 14 at Prole Drift. Also, congratulations to SuttonBeresCuller, recipient of the Kayla Skinner Special Recognition Award and Lisa Liedgren, recipient of the PONCHO Special Recognition Award. The Betty Bowen Award Ceremony is happening at SAM on Oct 20 at 6pm.

Deborah Scott / Waiting for Prince Charming

"The Girl Would Believe Anything", 2011, by Deborah Scott
Oil on canvas, 24" x 18", image via artist

Deborah Scott just opened up her show Waiting for Prince Charming at the Georgetown All City Coffee.
"This latest body of work, Waiting for Prince Charming, features her signature oil paintings, with a fairytale narrative theme. Often employing mixed media on larger than life substrates that demand attention, Scott sends a message that is whimsical if not tongue in cheek. Enthralled by universal human behavior and the connectivity therein she places herself in tandem with her sitter as they reveal a story both fact and fiction."
Snow White", 2011, by Deborah Scott
Oil on canvas, 60" x 36", image via artist

I love Deborah's updated takes on fairy tales. Her pieces read like found paintings that she's altered. It's the thing that I like in Banksy's work--there's always a bit of the unexpected. They always feel like dreams to me because she creates these surreal landscapes populated with things like Little Red Riding Hood carrying a Target bag or a (post-coital perhaps) Michigan J. Frog dancing his way off-screen.

Blankets

Blanket 21 (BWRY)
Colored pencils, 9" x 12"


A few folks mentioned that they didn't see my work last night at NEPO House. Turns out they did see it--they just didn't know it was mine. I was upstairs with Robert Yoder, Klara Glosova, Tony Sonneberg and more.


Blanket 3 (comforter 1), 2011
Colored pencils, 9" x 12"


A few weeks back, I got obsessed with drawing blankets. I think they're the next branch of my diary drawings; another way to document my personal life without being overly revealing. What's more intimate than something you sleep with? Plus, they look like piles of rainbows.

Blanket 17 (Mexican 1)
Colored pencils, 9" x 12"


I had ten of these new drawings hanging upstairs. You can see the rest of the series here. I'd love to end up with about a hundred of them.

Thanks so much to Klara + Team and all the artists, volunteers, and participants (and gracious neighbors) who made this happen. What a night! See pics from the walk over at Molo's blog.

His show Seattle AsiaTown opens up next Thursday.
"Seattle’s International District (a.k.a. Chinatown) is an excellent subject for painting with its vibrant color and energy. This part of town holds many cherished memories for me. As a child, my parents brought me here to do their shopping and to dine in its delicious restaurants. This is my tribute to Seattle AsiaTown’s beauty and mystery."

Friday Art Events

There's really something for everyone tonight. Here's a small list of things happening tonight around Seattle.

image via Hankblog

As part of Henry Art Gallery's Shelf Life, they are hosting an acoustic recap of Songs about Books. Levi Fuller organized this Ball of Wax quarterly compilation in which The Stranger Books Editor Paul Constant gave each songwriter a book which they wrote songs about. Participating songwriters and their books are Alex Guy (Led to Sea) - Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov; Levi Fuller - Bluets by Maggie Nelson; Johanna Kunin (Bright Archer) - Set This House in Order: A Romance of Souls by Matt Ruff; and Joshua Morrison - The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt. This performance is free with museum admission. More info here.

Stars by Yumiko Kayukawa, image via Roq La Rue Gallery

Yumiko Kayukawa will be showing at Roq La Rue Gallery. More info here.
Japanese painter Yumiko Kayukawa jokingly says "My father is Ninja, my mother is Geisha...and I was raised by wolves!" and that playful irreverence is also seen in her dynamic, rock-pop, color saturated paintings of independent women surrounded by animal totems and Japanese traditional motifs.

Image by Tessa Hulls

Ver(a)rt Gallery will be showing new work by Tessa Hulls, Charlie Spitzack, and Zach Stockman., along with live music by "This Bitch Don't Fall Off."
It'll be the last time to see Tessa before she heads down to Antarctica for a while. More info here.


image via CuS

Urban Light Studios will be hosting It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, curated by Henry Ward and Xavier Lopez, Jr. All art is inspired by the beloved Mad Magazine and artists include Xavier Lopez, Jr., Augie Pagan, 179, CuS, PhotoCoyote, Strange Child plus lots more. They'll even have free tacos (Camarena Tequila Taco Truck) in the back from 7-9 (or until they run out).


"Anemone" by Larkin, image via Bherd Studios Gallery


Bherd Studios Gallery will be hosting
"Askew: pushing the boundaries of realism". This group show, curated by Kate Protage and Chris Sheridan, will feature the work of Yvette Endrijautzki, Carl Faulkner, Zanetka Gawronski, Larkin, Matthew Lewis, Aaron Jasinski, Spyder Peterka, AJ Power, Jim Stoccardo, James Walker, and Andrea Wicklund.
"Realism is making a comeback. After a few years of lying low, representational art is back with a vengeance—artists are creating figurative work with passion and finesse, but now they’re adding their own unique twists. In a fitting gesture for these tumultuous times, the artists that were chosen for “Askew” create intense, layered imagery that challenges our perceptions of “normal” and makes us think twice about what’s real and what’s not."


It's opening night for Le Frenchword's Fancy Mud. Schedule and pricing here.
After a successful workshop run, absurdist trio Le Frenchword debuts the full length version of “Fancy Mud”; a collection of abstract comedy vignettes bolstered by a pastiche of movement, music and a deep and meaningful exploration of all things dumb. Directed by George Lewis, the story takes us from The Last Lame Three-Legged Dying Cow Of All Creation to the origins of the universe. With the help of cell phones, black holes, and the California Cute Cult, Le Frenchword delivers a pastel rainbow of laughter. Beware the flying bunny punch. Beware!

Blitz / September 2011

If you want to check out some great art, it's looking like there's plenty to see at Bitz tonight. Here are a couple of shows I'd like to check out. I've already mentioned the LxWxH launch party at Ghost Gallery and Over and Over at Vermillion. Blitz venue list here.


Lauren Max will be showing at Bauhaus.


Phoebe Clemens Rigg
will be showing in the upstairs gallery at Frame Central.


Ryan McGavin has a great show of work up at Cupcake Royale.
