Burk Gallery will be showing Kristin Jurist Haakenson's Color of Nature. "With an aura of reverence, Kristin paints her subject, Montana's Big Sky Country in both vibrant and subdued tones."

The Engagement by Toshi Asai (image via)

Joe Bar is showing "Collection", featuring works from artist Ben Beres' personal collection with artists like Chris Crites, Jed Dunkerley, Brad Ewing, Toshi Asai, and more.

Kimberly Trowbridge at The Living Room

And last but not least, Night Moves: A Drawing, by Kimberly Trowbridge at The Living Room. "By merging parts of the figure with the surrounding space, these works create a human form that exposes the collective and temporal aspects of its identity. Images reflect interest in the idea of coupling, and the deconstruction of individual forms in order to create a new, composite form."

And of course after looking at the all the art, head over to Unicorn for Dumb Eyes' Penetration.

Hi Joey - thanks for mentioning my show at Burk Gallery. I'm really excited to be a part of this month's Blitz.

(p.s. - I saw your work at the Tacoma Art Museum. Love it!)
