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.

Christopher Boffoli Exhibit

OPENING RECEPTION SATURDAY 11/16/19 FROM 1-3PM

Christopher Boffoli’s “Big Appetite” photography series combines miniature, hand-painted figurines with staged arrangements of food and beverages to create clever vignettes. Inspired by an unusual combination of magazine food photography and the 18th Century fable “Gulliver’s Travels,” Boffoli explores how inverting the proportions of people and their surroundings creates unexpected points of interest. These creative scenes evoke an uncanny likeness to the world at large. Boffoli also uses language to enhance the photographic narratives by selecting tongue-in-cheek titles that draw on old adages, colloquial sayings, and witty repartees, adding another level of interest to the work.

Christopher Boffoli is a Seattle-based photographer, artist, writer and filmmaker. With a background in literature and writing, Boffoli travels the world writing and photographing his travels through documentary and editorial photography and video. Christopher Boffoli’s work has been published in more than 80 countries around the world. His photography can be found in galleries and private collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.

Digital Perspectives: Maja Petric, Etsuko Ichikawa & Peter G

Winston Wachter Fine Art is excited to announce Digital Perspectives, an exhibition of digital works by Maja Petric, Etsuko Ichikawa and Peter Gronquist. Each of these artists embraces the digital medium as a way to reflect on our relationship to the natural world. Each invites the audience to join the conversation in these imagined realms, through AI interactive experiences, narrative, futuristic, social commentary and looping, meditative desert landscapes. All three artists ask us to take pause and consider the world we share.

Inspired by her nationally exhibited immersive installation We Are All Made of Light, Maja Petric has created a more intimate and personal interactive experience, where the viewer is a singular figure moving throughout simulated nature. In her new work, Particle Attraction multiple environments depict abstracted landscapes, such as water, earth and air. Interactivity is used to mirror the silhouette of a person viewing the piece and animates their reflection to appear as if they are emerging from the represented landscape. Through the use of AI, Petric is able to simulate the harmonious relationship with nature that so many of us strive for.

Etsuko Ichikawa continues her conversation about nuclear waste, what we chose to leave behind and how we differ from previous cultures with concern to future generations. Murmurings of Love depicts a futuristic heroine smashing an ancient vessel created out of uranium glass, a byproduct of nuclear energy. The figure wears protective clothing and is masked, while almost carelessly smashing the toxic vessel she presents. This is reflection not only on our relationship with nature, but also the thoughtlessness in which today’s world considers our global impact.

A Visual History of the Invisible 2 by Peter Gronquist is soothing and hypnotic digital installation. A single, oversized piece of gold fabric flaps weightlessly in the wind, set against the bright blue sky, seemingly untethered. The large square ripples and moves yet remains suspended high above the quiet mountains below. The peaceful sound of the wind paired with gentle movements and reflections of light, create a quiet moment demonstrating the simple beauty found in nature.

Susan Dory Exhibit: Exotic Mass

Winston Wächter Fine Art Seattle is pleased to announce a new solo exhibition of work by painter Susan Dory. As Dory explains, the title for this new body of work, Exotic Mass, is taken from “a term in particle physics, roughly thought to be some form of unknown, exotic subatomic particles not categorizable, within the realm of dark matter.” In relation to her work, Dory uses the term to describe her painting compositions, which are built up of precariously balanced forms that stack and tip onto one another to create large, beautifully composed geometric (exotic) masses.

Susan Dory draws inspiration for her work from a myriad of ideas, subjects and visual information. Color is perhaps the most obvious of these subjects, as she relates to Joseph Albers’s idea that color is relational and that certain colors respond and change when juxtaposed with one another.

The natural landscape and the marking of time continue to be sources of compositional inspiration for Dory.  The forms and movement in her paintings evolve as she explores and studies the topography of the earth.  Geological formations, masses of rocks, the negative space and craggy forms of Gongshi rocks, the amorphous shapes of the desert plant llareta – just a few of the things that inform Dory’s work in abstract ways.  The resulting paintings are concerned with color, balance, weight and an interweaving composition built upon heavily layered paint. These overlapping shapes create a layering effect that consequently serve as a visual document of time. This layering process not only allows viewers to see through one shape and into another, it also creates a distinct, tactile quality to the pristine surfaces of her paintings.

Susan Dory’s work has been collected and exhibited nationally in public and corporate collections including the Tacoma Art Museum, the Art in Embassies Program, Microsoft, Nordstrom and the City of Seattle Arts Collection.

November 16, 1:00 pm, Museum of History and Industry

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):

Tues-Fri 12-5pm

Opening Reception:

October 17 @ 6pm

Exhibition Period:
