Happenstance: A Photo Show By HollyAnne Sarah Faber at Annie's Art & Frame

Some of my favorite photographic encounters with people have arrived by pure happenstance. They are rarely executed by planning concepts, models and locations.

These journeys happened by one single decision. One choice to take a job offer that introduced me to creative people. One choice to volunteer for an organization that took me to the other side of the world. In the end, whenever I have a decision to make, I know that each choice is a different catalyst for a new adventure and new moments of happenstance.

All images were produced by the Mamiya C330 with Kodak Portra 120 film. Locations span from the Pacific Northwest, Southern California and North Africa between 2012 - 2013.

Continued for the July ArtWalk : Landscapes and Abstracts by Jamee Linton On Display At Camelion Design

Camelion Design is excited to feature the beautiful paintings of Jamee Linton during the June and July Ballard Art Walk. Jamee, a new Seattleite, has recently relocated from our sister city Portland, Oregon. She will be exhibiting both her well-known landscape paintings as well as her new abstract works. 

Her paintings demand attention through their use of color, composition, and mark making. Her landscapes offer a soothing escape into environments that remind us of the places we have been and want to go. Her abstracts draw from the motivations of abstract impressionism and tell a story of life, passion, and struggle through texture, mark making, color, and spontaneity. 

Jamee Linton-Kelly, originally from Aiken, South Carolina, obtained her MFA in Painting and BFA in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Jamee has exhibited her work in venues both in the United States and Europe, including but not limited to Paris, London, Dublin, Portland, Atlanta, and New York. Her work has received special attention in a number of publications including: New American Paintings, Picture Perfect, The Atlanta Magazine, The Portrait of Portland Magazine, and The Oregon Home Magazine. Her paintings have also been featured on HGTV’s "Deserving Design". She was also nominated for the 2011 Contemporary Northwest Art Award through the Portland Art Museum. Jamee currently lives in the beautiful, sometimes rainy, city of Seattle.

Photographs by Nathan Brend at Umpqua Bank For June Artwalk

Nathan Brend grew up in Fargo, ND and moved to Seattle several years ago. He loves to explore the Pacific Northwest, a place much different than where he spent his first 30 years. The never ending prairies and farmland of his youth are now a bustling city surrounded by mountains and water.  He enjoys discovering new perspectives of local places seen every day that tourists travel miles to visit. 

His photographs represent a mix of the tourist and local resident. His goal is to provide interesting photos for visitors to take home and inspire Seattleites to rediscover the beautiful place in which we live.

Portrait and Figure Artist Aron Hart Showing at Art & Soul During June Artwalk

Art & Soul is pleased to show artwork by Aron Hart for the month of June. Aron is a gifted and award-winning Puget Sound portrait and figure artist, specializing in both traditional and non-traditional portraits. 

Aron developed his skills by studying locally and abroad, most recently graduating from Gage Academy's Drawing and Painting Atelier, where he is now an instructor. Much of the allure of Aron's work comes from his strong grasp of light and shadow and, whether painted in oil or drawn, his pieces always demonstrate his passion for contrast - on the canvas, in the artist, and in the subject.

Design, Mathematics, Fabrication: Bonnevie Sculpture at Blowing Sands in June

Karlito Bonnevie's artwork often takes the form of beautiful furnishings with a subtle mathematical influence.

 "I love to design stuff - it allows my creative juices to flow.
I love to use and apply mathematics - it keeps me in touch with the universe.
I love to build stuff in metal - it's extremely focusing and surprisingly forgiving.

Ultimately, one must answer the question - why do we make art? Ah, who cares? Just make it!"
Please come see pieces-to-redesign-your-living room-around at Blowing Sands Glass/Laura Frost Fine Arts.

Extra for artwalk! Special one-night-only trunk show of metal and glass pieces by accomplished artist Lon Clark.

Destination Products Rolls Into Venue for June Artwalk

Designer Leslie Pierson loves travel, typography, and distinctive design - and Destination Rolls are a powerful synthesis of her favorite things. The inspiration for the featured line of Destination Products came from a find in a vintage shop of a British destination roll that had been used on a train in the early 1900. These rolls were hand cranked by the conductors to display the next stop. The nature of Leslie’s simple design allows customers to create customized lists bounded only by imagination.

This month at Venue, Leslie will be showcasing some great destinations in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest on black & white destination rolls, prints, stretched canvas, greeting cards, and even pendants.

Leslie says, “Two of the most exciting questions you can ask anyone are: ‘Where are you going?’ and ‘Where have you been?” Her Destination Rolls can document your favorite places in the world – or the future travels of your dreams. Bon voyage!
