SWAY: Infinite Color & Sound Duo Mike McCready & Kate Neckel

Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce the premiere exhibition Sway by the collaborative group Infinite Color & Sound, comprised of artist and musician Mike McCready (of Pearl Jam) and New York/Seattle painter Kate Neckel. Infinite Color & Sound is a visual art and music duo, with works ranging from collage, sculpture, painting, drawing, music and performance. Guests of the two performances will experience an intimate view of the process which created artistic duo, Infinite Color and Sound.

Upon meeting, the two immediately connected artistically and began their journey through color and sound, which can be described as ‘Infinite’ due to a lack of rules, boundaries, or restrictions in their synergistic creations. “You could drop us anywhere and we could create…,” says Neckel. “We intuitively guide each other and know how to play like kids. Mike feels what I feel and knows exactly what to do with it. I trust his hands and eyes like my own.” McCready adds, “Kate has an amazing, artistic vision. Her paintings are expressive and moving and it’s an honor to be creating with her. She has given me a confidence to step out of my comfort zone of (Polaroid photography and music) and challenges me to try other mediums like painting and collage. One of my favorite aspects of this project is the vulnerability that is celebrated.”Kate Neckel’s work has been exhibited nationally, and in the documentary “House of Z.”. Neckel has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, InStyle, O, Fast Company and GQ. Her drawings have been commissioned for the walls of private and corporate clients, including The New York Times, Cole Haan, the Seattle Seahawks and the Ace Hotel New York. Neckel holds a MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and a MFA from School of Visual Arts.

Mike McCready is the lead guitarist, and one of the founding members for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted band Pearl Jam.  He has also been a member of Temple of the Dog, Mad Season, The Rockfords and Levee Walkers. Additionally, McCready plays with friends in Flight to Mars, a UFO tribute band that hosts charity events for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation’s Camp Oasis program and the Jennifer Jaff Care Line. When not performing live, McCready scores TV and film projects, which have included Elvis Presley: The Searcher, The Glamour & the Squalor, Shameless, Fat Kid Rules the World, Hawaii Five-O, We Bought A Zoo, Horrible Bosses & Fringe.

BACH’S COMPLETE CELLO SUITES MARATHON… BY EMERALD CITY MUSIC

Emerald City Music is South Lake Union’s destination for vogue, eclectic, open-bar classical music shows. Top-flight musicians gather from every corner of the globe to perform on ECM’s stages! The six cello suites of Johann Sebastian Bach are considered the Baroque composer’s most iconic set of chamber music. However, performing them in one marathon session is a bold and challenging feat for any cellist. British cellist Colin Carr returns to the Emerald City Music stages to conclude the season with this marathon full-evening performance of Bach’s complete Cello Suites.

“a beacon for the casual-classical movement, presenting high-level musicians in an unstuffy environment.” – CityArts Magazine
“intimate concerts that value a relaxed, communal vibe.” – OlyArts Magazine
