SWAY: Infinite Color & Sound Duo Mike McCready & Kate Neckel

Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce the premiere exhibition Sway by the collaborative group Infinite Color & Sound, comprised of artist and musician Mike McCready (of Pearl Jam) and New York/Seattle painter Kate Neckel. Infinite Color & Sound is a visual art and music duo, with works ranging from collage, sculpture, painting, drawing, music and performance. Guests of the two performances will experience an intimate view of the process which created artistic duo, Infinite Color and Sound.

Upon meeting, the two immediately connected artistically and began their journey through color and sound, which can be described as ‘Infinite’ due to a lack of rules, boundaries, or restrictions in their synergistic creations. “You could drop us anywhere and we could create…,” says Neckel. “We intuitively guide each other and know how to play like kids. Mike feels what I feel and knows exactly what to do with it. I trust his hands and eyes like my own.” McCready adds, “Kate has an amazing, artistic vision. Her paintings are expressive and moving and it’s an honor to be creating with her. She has given me a confidence to step out of my comfort zone of (Polaroid photography and music) and challenges me to try other mediums like painting and collage. One of my favorite aspects of this project is the vulnerability that is celebrated.”Kate Neckel’s work has been exhibited nationally, and in the documentary “House of Z.”. Neckel has been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, InStyle, O, Fast Company and GQ. Her drawings have been commissioned for the walls of private and corporate clients, including The New York Times, Cole Haan, the Seattle Seahawks and the Ace Hotel New York. Neckel holds a MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art and a MFA from School of Visual Arts.

Mike McCready is the lead guitarist, and one of the founding members for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted band Pearl Jam.  He has also been a member of Temple of the Dog, Mad Season, The Rockfords and Levee Walkers. Additionally, McCready plays with friends in Flight to Mars, a UFO tribute band that hosts charity events for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation’s Camp Oasis program and the Jennifer Jaff Care Line. When not performing live, McCready scores TV and film projects, which have included Elvis Presley: The Searcher, The Glamour & the Squalor, Shameless, Fat Kid Rules the World, Hawaii Five-O, We Bought A Zoo, Horrible Bosses & Fringe.

Circum∙ambience by Taiji Miyasaka

Circum·ambience
By Taiji Miyasaka

Open Studio*: January 9 – February 23 → Tuesday – Friday, 12 – 5pm
*Open Studio means the artwork is under construction, but MadArt is always open to the public during the process period to see the artist working and watch the installation come to life.
Opening Reception: Sunday, February 24 (1 – 3pm)
Exhibition Period: February 26 – March 23 → Tuesday – Friday, 10am – 5pm & Saturday, 12 – 5pm
Artist Talk: Wednesday, March 6 at UW’s Architecture Hall (ARC), #147 (6pm)

MadArt Studio presents Circum∙ambience by Taiji Miyasaka, a professor in the School of Design and Construction at Washington State University. In this exhibition, Miyasaka responds to the various conditions of MadArt Studio by creating three spherical sculptures that independently investigate the light, scale, and atmosphere of the physical space. Though bound by form, each sphere uniquely relates to the studio’s environment through its distinctive material and method of assembly.

The largest of these sculptures – a thirteen-foot inhabitable clay and wood sphere – is created through a traditional method of Japanese plaster construction. To learn these techniques, Miyasaka is working with a group of master plasterers both in his native Japan and in Seattle. The participating Japanese plasterers will be holding demonstrations of their traditional methods of soil application from February 7th and 8th at MadArt Studio, as part of the Open Studio installation period.

Generous support for this exhibition has been provided by MadArt, Artist Trust, and The Japan Foundation (Tokyo). Special thanks to Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture Engineering Shop at Washington State University, and the School of Design and Construction at Washington State University.
