Fred Hutch Research Study Exploring the Common Cold

Do you have a lot of colds and wonder why? Do you never get colds? If you are around kids and want to help us answer these questions, please join our study.

Help us understand why some people get sick from the common cold more than others. We are currently recruiting about 200 people to participate in our study. We hope that this study may provide information to help with designing a vaccine for Rhinovirus or for other viruses. Rhinoviruses are responsible for causing 30-50% of common colds.  Some people report getting a lot of colds each year while others report never getting sick.

This study will compare the immune response to the common cold (rhinovirus) between people who feel like they rarely have cold symptoms versus those who have them more often.  We hope that by closely following the body’s specific immune responses in someone who has exposure to the common cold, we can better understand which responses may be required for a successful vaccine against the common cold.

Demystifying spiritual healing - a free talk

Are you curious about how healing happens? Or how lessons from the Bible can bring peace, healing, and solutions to everyday needs? We invite you to explore ideas about spirituality and Christian Science at an upcoming talk by Beth Packer, CS. Sponsored by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Seattle.

This is a talk full of heart and practical application. Through analogies and healing examples, we discover where genuine security in our lives really comes from. The knowledge that there is a divine Principle underlying our lives that, when relied on, consistently brings peace and goodness to our lives, has been known and proved for centuries. We see that, by looking to God, Spirit, instead of materiality, the people in the Bible found reliable peace, healing, and solutions to their everyday needs. And the discovery of the Science of Christ, by Mary Baker Eddy, shows how we too can experience this same peace, security, and healing in our lives. It brings us to the realization that, we can no more run out of the good that we need than we can run out of God’s love for us.

The how & why & wonder of spiritual healing - a free talk

Are you curious about how healing happens? Or how lessons from the Bible can bring peace, healing, and solutions to everyday needs? We invite you to explore ideas about spirituality and Christian Science at an upcoming talk by Beth Packer, CS. Sponsored by the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Seattle.

This talk explores the phenomena of spiritual healing as recorded throughout the Bible – healing that for centuries had allowed people to live their lives with dominion and not be victims to their circumstances. And it shows by present-day examples, that such healing is not something of the past, but is a present possibility – an accessible transforming power for good in our lives today. It’s shown how a knowledge of our inseparable relationship to God brings practical healing solutions. Also, how practical, effective prayer can help us all experience divine power and protection in our lives. Included are multiple examples of the practicality of spiritual healing, including protection from an attack, healing of a medically diagnosed ‘incurable’ illness, and effects of a severe accident.

September 24 - December 7, MadArt

Lure

MadArt presents Lure, a site-specific installation by artists/architects Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers of Dream the Combine, in collaboration with Seattle-based artist/engineer Clayton Binkley. Inspired by the interplay of light, people, and the architectural environment of MadArt Studio, Lure explores how the gallery engages with public space. The structure—both object and environment, lure and trap—consists of hovering pathways formed by steel supports and sliding opacities of mesh and plaster. Visitors step from the sidewalk directly into the artwork, instantly becoming immersed in a looping circulatory system that encourages exploration, curiosity, and reciprocal engagement between the form and its audiences.

Open Studio (open during construction/installation):

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.
