Cedar Goddess (Digital Art), 2010... [19 Nov 2011|08:56pm]

virgofolkie
My digital art, for some reason, is becoming more Pagan-oriented all the time, with increased use of natural/photographed rather than digital backgrounds. This one includes Neolithic European artistic motifs, original Poltava (Balkan cross-stitch) designs, Old European and Classical Cypriot script characters, and one original Neolithic-inspired polymer clay ornament--all on a cedar-trunk photo background...

Remembering Su Job [23 Jan 2009|06:00pm]

(x-posted from my journal)

I was just at her hospice fundraiser art auction (Dec. 6), where she still looked so cheerful and healthy. Just discovered she passed on Dec. 25.

For those of you who knew Su Job, here is an event to honor a prominent member of the Seattle art community.

I knew her as one of the master tenants of the artist loft 619 Western Building (where I share Studio Q Gallery with a few other photographers). She was an influential artist, teacher, friend.

There is a parade and public memorial reception this Sunday. I will probably be there for the early part of it.

------------------

2:30 - 3:00 Gather at TashiroKaplan Studios at 306 So. Washington Street for Parade.
3.00-Parade leaves TashiroKaplan going past All City Coffee then down Washington to Zeitgeistat at 2nd and Jackson down to First Ave. and left on Yesler to the viaduct along the waterfront for a few blocks towards the Market then south and east to the Arctic Club Hotel Dome Room where the Parade meets with the people who were not in the Parade.
We should arrive there at 4:00 and plan to use it until 7:00 for catered refreshments and live music.
4.00--We arrive at the Dome Room, speechify, socialize, schmooze.
7.00--the party moves to 619.

After the Parade and Memorial there will be a Party for Su at 619 at ACE studios 3rd floor South around 7pm. If you would like to attend it would be nice if you could bring some food or beverage.

Tonight and This Weekend: Remembering John Logan Harter, Northwest Surrealist [04 Dec 2008|02:53pm]

ninjarugrat
Remembering John Logan Harter, Northwest Surrealist, Dec. 19, 1940-May 2008




Studio Q is proud to present a show celebrating the life and art of a tremendously prolific Northwest surrealist painter, sculptor, poet, and more – whose career spanned more than four decades.


Remembering John Logan Harter
Dec. 19, 1940 – May 2008


An exhibition of selected works


Curated by Ken Slusher of Open Mondays and courtesy of the estate of John Logan Harter


First Thursday Art Walk, Dec. 4, 2008, 6-10 p.m.
Open House, Dec. 6-7, 2008, Noon-4 p.m.


Studio Q Gallery
619 Western Ave. (near Yesler in Pioneer Square)
Fourth Floor North
Seattle, WA 98104

"He's an artist who is not afraid of distorting reality, using enigmatic objects, and/or creating a visual vocabulary through the juxtaposition of objects within his work."
– Duane Kirby Jensen, Everett Independent Voice, November 1999


"Harter has a theory that Northwest art is distinguished by a peculiar blend of realism, Asian influence, East Coast pop, West Coast funk, and folk art."
– Lynn Basa, Bellevue Journal-American, Nov. 29, 1987


"John Harter's work would get a lot more attention if he were living in Chicago. He paints a kind of precisely delineated visual oddity that has no precedents here. The ground isn't the ground, the sky is a drop curtain and the roads tunnel off to nowhere. Harter's contribution to this show will offer many people a chance to catch up with one of Seattle's own first-class, latter-day Surrealists."
– Regina Hackett, Seattle-Post intelligencer, Oct. 26, 1980


"There is an element of the absurd coupled with wit. ... the paintings and drawings are intimate explorations into a very subjective reality. There are oddities -- rendered in meticulous detail. The aesthetic seems as cleancut as a crewcut, but we know it isn't. It is a mockery of the crewcut syndrome."
– R.M. Campbell, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, August (year unknown)


"Harter's flawless technique of acrylic on masonite creates fun studies which take a distorted view of the objects around us."
– Mayumi Tsutakawa, Seattle Times, February (year unknown)

Seattle School Board Attempting to Close the Only Arts Focused Public School in Seattle [11 Nov 2008|10:22pm]

Seattle School Board Attempting to Close the Only Arts Focused Public School in Seattle
by Gabriel

The Seattle School Board is voting WED (11/12/08) to re-purpose the Jane Adams Building where the Summit K-12 program is located. They do not have a replacement building planned and are depending on as-yet-undecided school closures to move the program. The likely outcome is that the program will be strongly negatively impacted or closed.
The Summit K-12 program is the only public school in Seattle with a core focus on the arts. The arts are integrated into every class, and art is a key to the curriculum.

Seattle Drink 'n' DrawSeattle Drink 'N' Draw This Friday!

Hey all, the next Seattle Drink 'N' Draw is this Friday the 14th at the Old Pequliar in Ballard, starting around 7:30 and running 'til eleven (or we all get sick of it and go home). In attendance this month will be yours truly, thespusAdam Watson, snowmanJustin Ison, daltonwDalton Webb, and more! We're going to sit around, knock back a few, talk comics, draw and collaborate, continue working on the first official Drink N Draw jam comic (begun last time around, get in on it) and generally just kick back and relax a little.

The Old Pequliar is very likely going to be our regular spot for this monthly get-together; if you've never been, you'll enjoy it, it's a great place in a great part of town, plenty of light and room (unlike some of our other locations) up on the second floor, where we'll be meeting. It's also down the street just a ways from Archie McPhee, which I've not lived here long enough to get jaded about yet. As always, we'll bring the paper if you bring the presence, hope to see you there!

For more information, drop us a line or check out the blog.

Tomorrow @ Noon @ Seattle City Hall, downtown [29 Oct 2008|04:50pm]

More info here:
http://www.seattle.gov/arts/events/calendar.asp?d=30&m=10&y=2008
Tim Cowley, the visual artist behind the real-time effects is one of the brilliant minds who did the pack-in visualizers for Windows Media Player. (Download the stand-alone versions here) His work in this show has a mostly-planetary/space theme, where planets explode, reassemble, and dance while stars streak into hyperspace warp-lines in real time, reacting to the vocals through a mic feed. There are also themes of organic / fractal growth patterns.

Anyway it's free, and weird. If you lunch downtown, stop on by!

Capitol Hill Art Walk: Illustrator Ellen Forney
Tuesday, September 9th 6-9pm, Free
Babeland Seattle
707 East Pike Street

ELLEN FORNEY’s Ta-Ta, “Lustlab Ad of the Week” Original art exhibition and LUST book signing. Join Ellen Forney in bidding “Ta-Ta!!” to her provocative “Lustlab Ad of the Week” cartoon series! Forney's collection of cartoons celebrates the sometimes stunningly crude, sometimes surprisingly sweet online world of kinky personal classifieds. For four years Forney illustrated the Seattle Stranger's "Lustlab" classified ads by interpreting the most interesting, outrageous, or idiosyncratic ad in that week's paper. Ellen will be on hand to sign copies of LUST, the hardback collection of the series. The art exhibit features the original ink-on-paper art selected from the series.

Check out my interview with Ellen here:
