January 9 - March 23, MadArt

Circum∙ambience by Taiji Miyasaka

Circum·ambience
By Taiji Miyasaka

Open Studio*: January 9 – February 23 → Tuesday – Friday, 12 – 5pm
*Open Studio means the artwork is under construction, but MadArt is always open to the public during the process period to see the artist working and watch the installation come to life.
Opening Reception: Sunday, February 24 (1 – 3pm)
Exhibition Period: February 26 – March 23 → Tuesday – Friday, 10am – 5pm & Saturday, 12 – 5pm
Artist Talk: Wednesday, March 6 at UW’s Architecture Hall (ARC), #147 (6pm)

MadArt Studio presents Circum∙ambience by Taiji Miyasaka, a professor in the School of Design and Construction at Washington State University. In this exhibition, Miyasaka responds to the various conditions of MadArt Studio by creating three spherical sculptures that independently investigate the light, scale, and atmosphere of the physical space. Though bound by form, each sphere uniquely relates to the studio’s environment through its distinctive material and method of assembly.

The largest of these sculptures – a thirteen-foot inhabitable clay and wood sphere – is created through a traditional method of Japanese plaster construction. To learn these techniques, Miyasaka is working with a group of master plasterers both in his native Japan and in Seattle. The participating Japanese plasterers will be holding demonstrations of their traditional methods of soil application from February 7th and 8th at MadArt Studio, as part of the Open Studio installation period.

Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by MadArt, Artist Trust, and The Japan Foundation (Tokyo). Special thanks to Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture Engineering Shop at Washington State University, and the School of Design and Construction at Washington State University.

February 6 - March 16, Winston Wachter

Kim Keever: Three Dimensional Rorschach

Winston Wächter is pleased to announce our first solo exhibition with New York photographer Kim Keever. Trained as a thermal engineer (having worked on several NASA projects), Kim Keever brings his knowledge of science and physics to his experimental experiences of water and paint. He blends his “ingredients” in what he calls his “painting machine” (a large water filled aquarium) and documents the transient results. For Keever, he is only in control of what is put into the process, but the results are wholly random. From his numerous documentary images, he will narrow down to a select few, spending months discovering the composition which moves him most. What excites Keever in part, is the distinctly personal reaction each viewer will have with the forms, bringing part of their memories to each artwork.

Kim Keever’s work is included in numerous collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC. He has been featured in many publications including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Wired Magazine.

#fromwhereistand by Arit Gordon

Winston Wächter is proud to announce the group exhibition #fromwhereistand. #fromwhereistand is an Israeli photography exhibition, curated by Tel Aviv native and Seattle resident, Arit Gordon.

Since moving, her perspective has changed, and through this exhibition we see her view of Israel through the eyes of photographers Yair Barak, Asaf Gam Hacohen, and Gidon Levin.

Storefronts South Lake Union presents the last round of installations in 2018 – The year is comprised of three rounds themed around the concept of building relationships with cities, people, and nature. In this third round we explore the works of artists exploring issues relating to nature- a study of terrain, habitat, and the systems that support or degrade the very ground we stand on.
