Illustrated Collage By Dan Voelker Featured at Umpqua Bank for November Artwalk

Dan Voelker explores relationships in tone, line, shape and depth using collage. The layering effect of collage allows his drawings to become paintings. The collages begin with several “automatic” charcoal drawings on paper. All of the material found in each collage comes from these drawings, which are sliced up and reassembled in a new way. The cutting up process is an extension of drawing, as Voelker is able to create new and unique forms. When assembling the pieces, he does not begin with a plan or sketch. His process is improvisational, immediate and organic; slowly building each piece into a balanced composition.

Though his work is abstract, it often references figurative elements. A portrait, landscape, or still-life will often emerge, sometimes in the same composition. Voelker is deeply fascinated by sculpture and often sees his work referencing 3 dimensional forms. He attempts to engage the viewer by shifting perspectives and/or subjects, creating movement with dramatic events while leaving the piece open to interpretation.

For November's ArtWalk, BalMar will be Showing Photographs by Aaron Hartel and Presenting Music by DJ Gyp Chi (aka Jittania Smith)

                                                            And The Days Go By
                                                               Aaron D. Hartel

At night with the sun hidden and the ancient starlight shining in the sky the vastness of the space that surrounds our planet becomes visible. The borders between the built and natural worlds take on aspects not always visible. In particular, the bright and busy lights of the city become a surreal backdrop to the islands of trees and small shorelines along the waters, especially in our city parks.



Photographs done at night I find reveal these interesting qualities. Exposures can often last for several minutes, due the low light.  As the moments stack upon each other human activities have an evanescent quality showing up as streaks of light on the final image. It is a reminder of the ever changing and incredible space we live in.

                                                                       DJ GYP CHI
                                                                       Jittania Smith

GYP CHI (aka Jittania Smith) is a DJ and producer from Seattle, WA. Long before she pursued DJing, Smith played percussion for Washington Middle School and Garfield High. In her spare time, Smith was influenced by many styles of music ranging from Moby and Thievery Corporation to Jimi Hendrix, The Orb, Bjork and RJD2. While pursuing a degree in Marine Biology at Brown University, Smith discovered her passion for electronic music production in an elective Computers & Music course. A year later, in 2012, Smith was given the opportunity to pursue her DJing skills internationally while traveling on a working visa in Australia. Upon her return to the states last fall, Smith made the switch from CDJs to Technic 1200s and Serato, and has been hooked ever since. Smith enjoys mixing a wide array of genres, ranging from 80's and 90's pop, disco and old school hip hop to modern reggaeton, electrohouse, trap, soul and glitch hop. She also loves any opportunities to collaborate with others, and is always looking for other musicians and artists to practice and perform with.

Nancy Reithaar and Suzanne Lorenz Fill BallardWorks For November Artwalk

abundance, variety, adaptation, proliferation, versatility, color, texture, shape, ink, collage, paper, comradeship

These words describe my process, focus, and evolution as I reflect on ten years of exhibitions as a Ballard printmaker and participant in the Ballard Artwalk. This show is a celebration of a decade of collaboration with local businesses and artists in our vibrant Ballard community. On display will be some of my earliest prints of elephants (featured in my first show at Sev Shoon Arts Center), as well as blue herons, cats, and every animal I could fit in up to my newest series of sea creatures and beaches. Please join me in my journey through monotype, etching, and the animal kingdom.  -Nancy Reithaar

I am inspired by broad expansions of light and color, beauty in nature, and the landscapes that surround me. I look for capturing the ‘beautiful impermanence and rustic decay’ symbolized in the Japanese phrase 'wabi-sabi.’ I am interested in photographing the decay of iconographic imagery of my lifetime: pioneer cemeteries, antiquated trucks, drive-in movie remains, deteriorating barns, movie theater marquees, vanishing telephone booths. I have recently begun photographing urban environments, commercial window reflections, fire hydrants and urban life.

I have been photographing for over 3 decades,  some of those years more concentrated than others. I started with film in the darkroom with black and white images, focusing solely on tonality and controlling light. Now, in the digital age my focus still remains the same. -Suzanne Lorenz
