August 11 - September 15, Winston Wachter

Jessica Cantlin Ethereal

Winston Wächter Fine Art is proud to announce our first solo exhibition with artist Jessica Cantlin. Cantlin’s photographs elegantly capture the connectedness to nature found in moments of quiet solitude. Fueled by her love of travel, Cantlin has documented the universal peacefulness which can be found with time by the ocean, the desert or with wildlife. Cantlin’s ability to capture atmosphere and light, further enhance the sense that the viewer is experiencing these meditations personally. Her work encapsulates moments in time and the joy found in exploring new environments.

Jessica Cantlin is a fine art photographer and writer. After leaving her career as a successful attorney, Jessica searched for ways to “feed her wanderlust”. By creating the popular blog of the same name, she was able to document her travels and share her experiences, with the hopes of inspiring others to appreciate the beauty surrounding them.

July 1 - November 15, South Lake Union

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
