Umpqua Bank Presents Misleading Maxims For December Artwalk

In the month of December, Umpqua Bank is showing the work of photographer Laura Gehring. This show is titled "Misleading Maxims", exploring caricatures of the 1930’s, inviting comparison to times of loss, distrust, tumult, and uncertainty.  Each character’s story of loss, gain, or greed brings forth a projection of history onto today’s ideologies, unearthing contemporary affects in the process. The melting pot that is America is able to obtain a rendering of the highly sought after “American Dream,” yet within the realities of past and present it proves to be fleeting.

Growing up in rural Idaho with the urge to document the small town culture, beauty of the prairie, and mountain life, Laura followed in her grandfather's footsteps as a photojournalist. After moving to Seattle 4 years ago, she needed to find her own voice in storytelling. Moving into the fashion industry, she was able to tell any story through light, set, and mood. Now she uses that same aesthetic to work closely with clients to learn their story and produce imagery that clearly defines their business as a whole.

Knutzen's Surrealist Landscapes Return to BalMar for December 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.
