Kate Neckel Stories

Winston Wächter Fine Art is proud to announce our first solo exhibition, Stories with artist Kate Neckel. Kate Neckel’s paintings record the energy and flow of her surroundings. For years, living in New York, her work reflected the kinetic, vibrating energy of the city, in vibrant and colorful topographic compositions. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, there is a noticeable shift in her work, where her brushstrokes have become bold outlines, like winding rivers mixing with totemic symbols. Her visual stories are spontaneous and pour from her, like ancient guides to her two homes.

Kate Neckel earned her BA from University of Maryland at College Park, and her MFAs from the Maryland Institute College of Art and the School of Visual Arts in New York. A selection of her collaborations include designer Zac Posen, Ace Hotel, Cole Hahn, The New York Times and the Seattle Seahawks. A resident of New York for seventeen years, she now makes her home in Seattle with her family.

Diaper Drive - Pilates ProWorks Helping Mary's Place

From August 8 through September 30, Pilates ProWorks, the boutique fitness studio concept known for its contemporary twist on traditional Pilates, is collecting diapers of all sizes to help support local mothers in need.

Roughly 1 in 3 American mothers report experiencing diaper need and nearly 5.2 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families and are in need of diaper assistance, according to the National Diaper Bank Network.

“As a mother, I know the importance of clean diapers and the health risks soiled diapers pose to infants and young children,” said Taylor Carter, co-founder and president of Pilates ProWorks. “We want to do our part to help support struggling mothers. So many of our clients can relate to how overwhelming motherhood can be, so we hope to  provide them with much-needed relief.”

Diapers will be collected at the South Union studio, located at 771 Thomas St. All of the diapers collected will be donated to Mary’s Place, a homeless shelter that aims to provide resources for struggling families in the Seattle area.

Pilates ProWorks’ diaper drive is a part of a larger brand-wide initiative, “Restore Your Core,” which emphasizes the importance of empowering mothers to practice self-care.

Mary’s Place has a specific need for larger diapers (sizes 5 and 6) and Pull Ups (Sizes 4T-5T). The center also needs soy formula and strollers.

Founded in 2009 in San Francisco, Pilates ProWorks took the Bay Area by storm, quickly becoming the leading Pilates-based fitness concept in the area due to its alternative workouts and unlimited class membership offerings. Introducing Pilates to innovation, Pilates ProWorks offers a fresh approach to the traditional Pilates method, using the brand’s patented, custom-made reformer machine and contemporary teaching methods.

Each studio offers a variety of classes that give members inspiring, full body workouts and help clients around the world achieve their fitness goals. The innovative fitness concept offers a variety of 40-55 minute classes lead by professional instructors.

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

September 1 - February 10, Museum of History and Industry

WW1 America

Empires were destroyed, millions perished, and the world was upended by a war meant to end all others. Making its West Coast debut at MOHAI on September 1, 2018 through February 10, 2019 WW1 America tells the story of one of history’s most remarkable moments.

The WWI era—1914 to 1919—saw America transformed. It was a time of wrenching extremes that pulled Americans between the poles of fear and hope, between deepening cynicism and broadening optimism. Through original artifacts, images, voices, interactives and multimedia presentations, WW1 America tells the extraordinary stories of Americans—both legendary and unsung—during this turbulent time.

“The City of Seattle welcomes this opportunity to explore the causes and consequences of World War I,” said Seattle Mayor Tim Burgess, “and also to salute the generations of veterans in our region who have served the nation at home and abroad.”

This powerful exhibit will coincide with the centennial of Armistice Day on November 11, 2018 the day the war ended and an especially important day of international observance in 2018 (known in the United States as Veterans Day).

Developed by the Minnesota History Center in partnership with the National Constitution Center, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, the Oakland Museum of California and the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, WW1 America illustrates how the past can help us understand our nation and our world today.
