Seattle First Thursday Art Walk in January 2017

Showing through January 28 at the Artxchange Gallery, 512 First Avenue S., is award-winning Canadian artist Chin Yuen with paintings from her “Organic Evolution” and “Dim Sum” series.

 

 

davidFeatured this month at Davidson Galleries, 313 Occidental Avenue S., are three concurrent shows featuring etchings by Toru Sugita, prints by Chinese artist Xiao Dai, and etchings by Ben Beres. Shown at the right by Xiao Dai (detail).

 

 

Opening from 6-8pm at the Foster/White Gallery, 220 Third Avenue S.,  is a collection of the work of James Martin spanning more than five decades with many pieces never before seen at the gallery. One of Seattle’s most beloved and prolific artists, Martin is a natural storyteller drawn to the unexpected, the surreal, and the vaudevillian. The exhibit runs through January 21.

 

 

Greg Kucera Gallery, 212 3rd. Avenue S.,  is showing their  fourth one-person exhibition by Portland, OR painter Michael Knutson. At first glance, Knutson’s oil paintings and watercolors appear to be computer generated or at least based on complex mathematics. In reality, while a computer is used briefly in the creation of the painting’s structure, the artworks are quite labor intensive and painted by hand. The opening reception is from 6-8pm.

 

 

The Harris/Harvey Gallery, 1915 1st. Avenue,  exhibition features works from the estate of John D. Cole, most by the artist’s own hand, but several by artists whose work he collected together with his wife, Lucille. Some of the Coles are being offered for the first time. This intriguing selection of landscape and the figurative works spans Cole’s activity over 30 years. The exhibition includes small drawings in pen and ink, charcoals, oils, acrylics, and pastels, as well as a number of monotypes and woodcuts.

 

 

prographicPrographica Gallery, 313 Occidental Avenue S., opens from 6-8pm with a solo exhibition of work by Ellen Garvens featuring her recent archival inkjet prints and videos along with a small selection of work from her earlier “Ambivalence” series. On view through February 25, the opening reception is from 6-8pm.

 

 

stoningtonStonington Gallery,  125 S. Jackson Street, opens from 6-8pm with “Into the Woods Forests of the Northwest Coast.” The exhibition explores what makes the Northwest such a vibrant, unique environment. In the hands of skilled artisans, one single giant western red cedar tree can provide wood for a canoe, house, bowl, mask, cape, hat, rattles and mats. To know a tree so well as to perfectly craft every part of it into something as beautiful as it was functional is a remarkable skill. Shown: Junior Henderson (Kwakwaka’wakw), Raven Transforming into the Hunter of the Woods Pole.
