Deb Achak: Culture and Sea

Winston Wächter Fine Art is proud to announce, Culture and Sea, an exhibition of new photographs by Seattle artist Deb Achak. Opening reception for the exhibition will be held on May 2nd, 6-8PM at 203 Dexter Avenue North. The artist will be in attendance.

Photographer Deb Achak explores her fascination with water and the ways in which we connect with it in her debut exhibition Culture and Sea. This exhibition examines the texture, color, and poetry of the ocean with her Ebb and Flow photographs, as well as the commonalities across cultures in the way we gather, find joy, relaxation, and contemplation at the beach in her Aquatic Street series.

With Ebb and Flow, Achak takes the viewer into the water, at times submerging her camera, others hovering just above the water line. This series allows us to feel the power of the ocean, as well as it’s ability to sooth and heal.

Achak’s Aquatic Street photography documents life by the ocean as the silent observer. She moves within the crowds of people, capturing the impact the ocean can have on human behavior in honest and genuine expressions.

The photographs in this exhibition were captured in Positano and Capri Italy, Hawaii, and Florida.

June 20, 6:30 pm, Museum of History and Industry

The Presence of Absence

MadArt is excited to welcome Seattle-based artist Katie Miller to the studio this summer. Miller’s site-specific installation of sculptural forms, including a labyrinth of cut paper, will envelop visitors in light and shadow. Layers of coalescing lines and latticed structures will create an immersive environment referencing the changing urban landscape.

Katie Miller was born and raised in the pristine wilderness of Northeastern Minnesota, but is now deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest. As an interdisciplinary artist, Miller creates immersive installations often with a participatory element. She received her BFA from the University of Washington and her MFA from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Her work has been collected and exhibited nationally, with recent solo exhibitions at Gallery 4Culture and METHOD Gallery in Seattle, Washington and group exhibitions at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, Washington and Temple Contemporary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Miller has been selected for numerous artist residency programs including the Montello Foundation, Bullseye Glass Resource Center, Art Farm, Anderson Ranch, and Sculpture Space.
