For March and April, we will be featuring stunning pieces by two local artists: Deborah Kirsner and Kayako Sareen.
Deborah is presenting “Travels through my viewfinder: an exhibit of infrared photography”. Originally from New York, Deborah has had a camera in her hands since she was 8, but it wasn’t until she moved to Seattle that she truly found her passion in photography. Her focus is fine art photography, while exploring alternative techniques of capturing and/or printing images. This exhibit is infrared images taken on her travels to the Himalayan country of Bhutan, the island of Cuba, France and most recently, Spain (image is from Spain). A percentage of her sales will be donated to Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center.
On the other side of the cafe, Kayako Sareen is presenting her “Simply delicious” collection. Kayako grew up in Osaka, Japan; a concrete jungle surrounded by magnificent mountains and an ocean vista that transformed in color, in texture, and even in shape with every season. Inspired by her mother, who let her use her Nikon F1 camera, Kayako began her journey into photography at the age of 10. Kayako’s motto in photography is “kannon,” which literally means “watching the sound” in Japanese. She seeks to capture images that evoke sounds like giggles, sobs, laughs and conversations.
Kayako started her project called “One Food, One Month” this year. She is focusing on taking photographs of a different type of food every month and creating different images for each.
In this show, Kayako is exhibiting two of her favorite subjects, Coffee and Chocolate.

Enjoy the show, which this month will coincide with the Cascade Second Sunday Stroll.

Drinks at happy hour prices and free nibbles provided.
