Avenue S.  Rediske has been a featured artist with Foster/White Gallery  since 1991. His work is a part of corporate, hospitality and private collections worldwide.

Gallery I|M|A, 123 S. Jackson, is showing the work of James Brown in the gallery this month. Brown’s paintings explore the world of perception and the truths we assume from our sensory experiences. 

Greg Kucera Gallery, 212 3rd. Avenue S., opens for First Thursday with their third one-person exhibition of work by Seattle artist, Dan Webb. In this exhibition, “The Visitor,” the artist continues to use his consummate carving abilities to great effect, creating a collection of work that questions art and its place in the world.  Also showing is the fourth exhibition of photography by artist, Chris Engman. The artist creates labor-intensive alterations to interior settings by installing photographs to the walls, distorting  perceptions of the space.

Harris/Harvey Gallery, 1915 First Avenue,  presents new work by Ed Kamuda in Cabin and a Dream. By transforming simple forms into meaningful and enigmatic landscapes, Kamuda continues the internally symbolic and reverential nature of his previous paintings, while continuing to explore and translate the quasi-spiritual experience of the Pacific Northwest landscape.

Mariane Ibrahim Gallery, 608 Second Avenue, presents the second solo exhibition dedicated to the Belgian born photographer, Sofie Knijff. The exhibition will open on September 7 and will run until October 13. “Tales” features over a dozen photographs of new portraits and landscapes in various countries as the photographer looks at the stories and tales children grow up hearing.

proPrographica /KDR Gallery, 313 Occidental Avenue S.,  presents a solo show of work by famed photographer Marsha Burns. Gallerist Norman Lundin has been an admirer of her photographs for years. He included them in numerous thematic exhibitions at Prographica, but now welcomes the opportunity to present Burns’ work in greater depth. While work for the show wasn’t selected with a chronology in mind, it still provides some insight since the photographs span Burns’ career. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art; the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Smithsonian American Art Museum; the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam; the Centre Pompidou; the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona in Tucson; the Seattle Art Museum; the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington, Seattle; the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, Washington; and the Portland Art Museum, Portland, Oregon, among others.

Studio 103, 306 S. Washington Street, opens for First Thursday with encaustic works by Joy Hagen, “Variations on a Theme.” Hagen selected prior works as inspiration for new work which has been altered and orchestrated into repetitive patterns that reflect new rhythms and harmony.

stonStonington Gallery, 125 S. Jackson Street, opens for First Thursday with young glass maestro Raven Skyriver (Tlingit) who returns for an exhibition of sea-life from oceans and river systems that are threatened by pollution, ocean acidification, and over-fishing. This exhibition is also a family affair, which includes photography on canvas by Skyriver’s sister Summer Moon Scriver (Tlingit), and a book signing by his mother, Irene Skyriver (Tlingit) at the exhibition opening from 5-8pm.

traverTraver Gallery, 110 Union Street,  opens from 5-8p with “LINO,” a new exhibition by Maestro Lino Tagliapietra. In the world of glass, very few artists earn the title of maestro. Still fewer earn the complete respect of their entire community; collectors and artists alike. Lino Tagliapietra is an influencer, an international innovator, and generous educator. His impact on the glass world cannot be overstated. Tagliapietra was the recipient of the prestigious Rakow Commission granted in 1996 by the Corning Museum of Glass, The Glass Art Society Lifetime Achievement Award, and the 2004 Visionary Award from the Museum of Arts & Design in New York. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, Asia and North America and is included in numerous prominent public collections including: The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York; The Danish Royal Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark; The Jewish Museum in San Francisco, California; The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, New York; Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France, and Museo del Vidrio in Monterrey, Mexico.
