Storefronts Program – South Lake Union Artists

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. Join us in reflecting on the strength and fragility of our shared Earth.” – Hanako O’Leary, Storefronts Program Coordinator

VINEGAR TOM by Caryl Churchill

Directed by Kaytlin McIntyre

Co-produced with Performance Production Department.

“Alice and her mother Joan are accused of witchcraft after Alice spurns her neighbors’ advances, setting into motion a witch-hunt allegory for the treatment of marginalized women throughout history and today. Vinegar Tom is also layered through with trenchant humor and surprising musicality, including songs that are designed to be playful contemporary ditties. It is rooted in Brechtian Epic Theatre, but this time through a female lens. It is a fertile ground for
acting, musical and comic performance skills…Caryl Churchill herself, and her play Vinegar Tom, are shining examples of theater-as-activism andthe practice of the artist-citizen-innovator.”  – Kaytlin McIntyre, from the director’s notes

Kaytlin McIntyre is the casting director for Seattle Repertory Theatre. Her directing credits inSeattle include world premieres of Zapoi and The Lost Girls at Annex Theatre, and Nadeshiko for Sound Theatre Company.

October 24 - December 8, Winston Wachter

Annie Morris Exhibition

Winston Wächter is proud to announce our second solo exhibition with internationally acclaimed London based artist Annie Morris. Morris creates towers shaped sculptures from carved foam, plaster, sand and raw pigment, meant to resemble a three-dimensional artist’s palate. Inspired by her strength from personal struggles, Morris chooses to focus on the hopefulness and vibrancy of life. The seemingly weightless forms are a metaphor for pure joy and the ability to conquer the impossible. Each layer of her towers teeters over the other, threatening to fall, yet gently supporting each other’s balance.

Since completing her degree from École des Beaux-Arts Paris in 2002, Annie Morris has received international acclaim for her immediate and considered approach to drawing, sculpture and painting. Recently Morris was selected as the featured artist for the Paris Louis Vuitton flagship location. Morris has exhibited at The Royal Academy, London; Baku MoMA, Azerbaijan and The New Art Gallery, Walsall and Tate Gallery, St Ives.

September 21 - October 27, Winston Wachter

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.

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.
