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.

REI Pinnacle and Pints

What’s better than an evening of climbing? Grabbing a beer afterwards, of course! REI’s got you covered for both during our REI Pinnacle & Pints outing. Your evening will start at the REI Climbing Pinnacle where we’ll provide all the gear you need and an expert REI host/belayer. After climbing, we’ll conclude our evening with a short walk to one of our favorite local watering holes where we’ll relax as REI pays for the first round. The Climbing Pinnacle has routes for beginners and experts alike, so whether you’re brand-spanking new to climbing or climb every week, this is a great way to break the monotony of your weekday routine. So, what’s better than climbing and brews? How about climbing, brews and a Klean Kanteen Pint Cup to go home with? We got you covered there too. Age: 21+ (Photo I.D. required).

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.
