TRACY ROCCA: THE ROCKIES

Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle is pleased to announce our fifth solo exhibition with painter Tracy Rocca. The inspiration for this body of work comes from Rocca’s extensive travels through the Rocky Mountains with her family – specifically Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Tetons and Glacier. The compositions are all based on Rocca’s photographs and memories from these family adventures. From each photographic reference point, Rocca then strips away the instantly recognizable details of the landscape in an attempt to present the viewer with a small sense of what it might feel like to be at the foot of the Tetons, or to stand in awe in a deep glacial valley. Rocca’s ethereal, abstract paintings are carefully built up over time to achieve their characteristic luminosity and unique sense of depth. Her painting process is slow and methodical, using layers of oil and pigment to delicately build and blur the paint into soft transitions of color and glowing light. Her blurred images, which are rooted in landscape, seek to soften our attention and create a space where the mind can rest. Through her dreamy compositions, Rocca draws the viewer in to a meditative focus on nature.

Tracy Rocca’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is included in the United States Embassies Collection, the Microsoft Art Collection, the Ritz Carlton and the University of New Mexico Collection.

TALE RETOLD… BY EMERALD CITY MUSIC

Hey Seattle, we’re Emerald City Music, the “beacon for the casual-classical movement presenting high-level musicians in a totally unstuffy environment” (CityArts Magazine). We’re the eclectic, open-bar destination for Seattle’s music lovers to dive deep into the world’s biggest genre of music alongside an unbelievable cast of top-tier musicians.

September 13 (8pm), old meets new in the retelling of Stravinsky’s kitschy Soldier’s Tale. A cast of NYC Ballet dancers join forces with librettist Mark Campbell (award-winning writer of Seattle Opera’s The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs). The night caps off with an edgy world-premiere by Seattle’s own Angelique Poteat entitled “Her Story of a Soldier.”

Poteat “Her Story of a Soldier,” World Premiere Commission (2019)
Stravinsky The Soldier’s Tale, Retold (1918, arr. 2019)
Cast: David Prottas, dancer (soldier) • Taeler Cyrus, dancer (princess) • Ashley Fitzgerald, dancer (devil) • Michael Barrett, director • Mark Campbell, librettist • Josh Bergasse, choreographer • Kristin Lee, violin • Alexander Fiterstein, clarinet • Stephen Burns, trumpet • Jon Rojak, trombone • Michael Thurber, bass • Oleksiy Zakharov, Bassoon • Ian David Rosenbaum, percussion

“Single-handedly raising Seattle’s profile in the classical music world, this series has major performers and composers in a chamber music setting. The venue, the back of a coffee and chocolate shop, increases the salon sensibility.” – ECM Audience member
