Scorched Earth

The works exhibited are a selection of digital composites and installations which seek to make sense of the sisters’ shared trauma. The works exhibited discuss impermanence, destruction, fire, home, and the lasting marks humans have made on the landscape.

Join this creative pair for an Opening Reception on March 3rd.

Reception: Friday, March 3rd from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Exhibition: March 3, 2017 – March 29, 2017

Mimi Solum and Stinktown Collective (Sinnem/Kolbo)

Great work in the gallery this month!

Jeff Huston invited an artist: Mimi Solum. It’s an amazing collection of works in the space, filing the large wall and there are pieces, the lids, on walls flanking the back wall.

These are fascinating drawings, and we are looking at the delightful multiplicity of the forms. The wall is great!

Sinners and Kolbo are at it again, with election going on, they are following their inner child.

It just won’t go to bed!

The drawings follow in Kolbo’s style, documenting their research in issues of surveillance and drone work.

They had a periscope project they did last weekend. We watched. 

It’s an election season so we are sure how we feel.

Come and see what they are doing. The work is better than what we have been seeing in Seattle!

It’s funny and interesting.

Have you been by?

Sometimes it’s this way

We sometimes feel as though the world is washing away. Carrie Scozzaro has a great piece articulating this idea. The piece is in the space this month.

We are open today, if you would like to see the work. She has a number of other pieces as she looks at the world. It’s a lovely conversation she has been having about expectations we have of each other.

Come and take a look.

What do you think the window looks like, NOW?

This image is from the weekend after the opening of our current show.

Otis Bardwell covered the window with clay, and drew in the clay by pushing his fingers into the moist clay. The bricks are also drawings.

And, if you look closely, Otis made an Ampersand in the clay. You can see the contrast between the brick outlines and swirl in the clay in contrast to the finger marks.

It’s a nice compliment of organic material’s lines in frames of bricks, and then the human marks producing the human mark of language.

We will keep this short, and cut it here, because we can see a rhetorical investigation looming ahead, like a deep cliff of interest.

We will be back soon from this fall into a reverie.

Come visit!

Could you come by to see the new things at the gallery?

Nancy Hathaway has some new work, and we have invited new members of the universities around the area to have a piece in the space as well.

Both shows are nice. We would welcome you to visit.

Say hello!
