Storefronts Program - South Lake Union Artists

“Storefronts South Lake Union presents three rounds of installations in 2018- each round is themed around the concept of building relationships with cities, people, and nature. In this second round we explore the works of artists incorporating the human figure into their works. Reflecting the faces, bodies, and silhouettes of those around them, these artists build up themselves and the community around them. Join us in engaging with themes of power, identity, history, community, and all the intricate human connections which frame who we are today and how we relate to each other.” – Hanako O’Leary, Storefronts Program Coordinator

June 26 - August 22, Winston Wachter

Summer Dreams

This summer Winston Wächter Fine Art is transformed into an alternate reality of overflowing color and light. Electric Coffin, Peter Gronquist, Neon Saltwater and Jennifer Zwick each command a quarter of the gallery, taking us to neon arcades, floral portrait studios, fauna portals and the land of potential unity. The exhibition will open on June 26th at 203 Dexter Avenue North, with a reception from 6-8pm (artists in attendance) and run through August 22nd.

Artist collaborative group Electric Coffin blurs the lines between design and fine art. Their work uniquely transforms each space with a collection of installation, sculpture and 2D work. This body of work, Nowhere (Now Here), was inspired by travels around the globe, focusing on the unconsciousness and universal ideals in society and how those are expressed in cultures, societies, and individual thoughts.

Peter Gronquist’s infinity mirrors are concentric, kaleidoscopic pools of light. This series pulls the outside in, with soft botanicals disappearing into darkness, allowing you to lose yourself, if only for a moment.

Neon Saltwater is a place that doesn’t have a location but exists in the dimension of false memories and dejavu. Neon Saltwater is not only the name for the dreamscapes but of the artist as well.  Her intent is to immerse you into an environment taking you out of your element and into a world that is both nostalgic and new. For this exhibition, Neon Saltwater invites you to the love arcade, a tropical sci-fi attraction, that also feels like an abandoned birthday party scene from the past and the future.

Jennifer Zwick’s Flowers & Fabric series captures vibrant bouquets, set against dynamically patterned fabric, creating compositions which imbue personalities on the floral arrangements, sitting for a portrait in a joyful reality where nature is truly alive. She has paired this series with her Exercise in Formal Composition series, which painstakingly deconstructs and arranges flowers creating multilayered triangular forms hovering above or within richly textured soil. With both series Zwick celebrates the powerful beauty found in simply in color and form.

Join us Tuesday June 26th, 6-8PM, artists in attendance

May 14 - August 18, MadArt

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.
