Paul Knutzen's Surreal Landscapes Show at BalMar During September Artwalk

Paul Knutzen is a local artist who currently lives in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of South Seattle. Paul attributes his interest in art to his father, a painter himself, who exposed Paul to a wide range of art as a child. He graduated from Seattle Central Community College with a degree in graphic art and soon found a home in the video game industry, where he spent over a decade creating 3D environments.

Much of Paul’s artwork reflects his strong affection for architecture and the organic elements found in man-made structures. He enjoys experimenting with different mediums and surfaces in order to create subtle and unpredictable textures in his artwork. When he is not working in his garage studio, Paul can often be found wandering the city streets with a camera looking for inspiration in unusual buildings, trains, colorful signage, or local street art.

Photographer Karen Hyams At Umpqua Bank During September Artwalk

As a former painter, photography is very interesting to Karen Hyams, as there are so many opportunities for distortion between her brain and the camera sensor. This bending and distorting makes photography plastic, surprisingly like painting, which feels very natural.

Painter Kathy Liao Featured At Annie's Art And Frame For September Artwalk

Kathy's work is about relationships.

In her own words: "I paint from observation and I want to become familiar with the various relationships that present themselves in front of me. The air, the color, the light, and the distance and space between the sitter and I shift week to week. More significantly, time moves on, and people’s lives change. In the end, I only hope to be truthful to what I see and to build upon that strange, unique, and, I believe, temporary relationship that transpires with each sitting and each moment."

Little Worlds Captured By Photographer Christopher Boffoli At Venue During September Artwalk

Join Venue in welcoming a photographer who was nominated for a James Beard Award for his food photography. Christopher Boffoli will be at Venue during this month's artwalk for a booksigning of his new book from Workman Press, Big Appetites. 

Christopher creates little worlds in his wonderful photographs using food and tiny people with inspired captions. It's smart, funny and quirky vision of what it means to play with your food - a man uses a jackhammer to open up pistachios, a farmer shovels a pasture full of cow pies (aka chocolate chips), and deep "tea" divers take the plunge in a cup of tea. The book features more than a hundred scenes from breakfast through dessert and makes a wonderful gift.

Christopher's Big Appetites series of cards, stocked by Venue, has been featured in the Washington Post and on NPR, The Chew, the Huffington Post, and other media outlets around the world.

Mary Martin-Capouya at Filthy Rich This Saturday

Mary is a native Floridian, new to the Pacific Northwest since 2007. After her first winter she decided to find an indoor hobby to get her through the rainy season. Since 2008, she has taken jewelry classes in local bead stores with a focus on working with Sterling Silver (925) and Fine Silver (999).

After several years of gifting my bracelets to friends and family, she was encouraged to sell her pieces. Her focus is to design beautiful sliver bracelets that can complement casual attire as well as more formal occasions.

Painter Amy Pleasant Returns to Art & Soul in September

For September, Art & Soul presents a new series by local artist, Amy Pleasant. After a challenging year, Amy used her experiences to inform this new body of landscape paintings.  Turning to nature for a space of solace, Amy took walks in some of her favorite forests in the Puget Sound region for comfort and a broader perspective.

Her usual painting practice normally filled with light and color on every layer began instead with a canvas of inky blackness and became a metaphor for the dark night she has struggled to let go of. On these canvases she wanted to see what would come out of her mind and her hand. The inspiration of those forests; a reminder of the perfection of nature, the cycle of life and most importantly a reminder that light appears from the darkness.
