Photographer Marlin Greene Showcases the Kiger Mustang Refuge at Horseshoe in November

Join Horseshoe this Artwalk and meet Nature & Landscape Photographer, Marlin Greene.  Artist reception from 6:00-9:00.

Marlin will be featuring his most recent collection of photographs of the Kiger Mustangs. These beautiful mustangs are the oldest horses in North America--brought to our country over 400 years ago by the Spanish. Their story is as compelling as the images that Marlin has captured.  Come pay witness to an American Legend.

Horseshoe will donate a percentage of Saturdays sales to the Kiger Mustang Refuge.

The story of the Kiger Mustangs:
The band of twenty-seven horses discovered by the BLM(bureau of land management) in the Beatys Butte wilderness of eastern Oregon in 1977 was the last group to be found that are so true to type -- the last of the Spanish "special forces horses" that had come to the Americas in the 1600s. When the BLM moved the herd to two management areas -- Kiger Creek and Riddle Mountain -- where they could be protected and developed, they insured short-term that the Kigers would survive. Now there are precious few of these unique, pure and top class examples of the Spanish origin horses left. There are less than 200 in the wild in the BLM areas. Maybe twice that number that are viable breeders, pure and top class, exist in captivity (excluding the geldings). These horses are endangered by situation if not by government designation.

Trilby Hainstock and OLIOTTO at Venue for November ArtWalk

After receiving her fine art degree from CCA, San Francisco, Trilby Hainstock worked as a scenic artist and properties artisan here in Seattle creating large sets for the theater. Collaboration taught her to find beauty in re-purposing materials and to find new ways to combine technology and craft.

Her current collection under the company name OLIOTTO includes silkscreened designs on paper, cotton tea towels and canvas totes, as well as reversible leather bracelets. She often finds that limited resources and humble materials are her biggest inspiration and aspires to make objects that are uniquely modern, utilitarian, and affordable.  Her work has been featured in Seattle Met, Seattle Magazine, Ecoterre, and Lark Books.

This month Trilby will be featuring a new Wallingford tea towel to join her previous Seattle neighborhood designs (Ballard, Greenlake, Seattle Center, West Seattle) as well as Seattle Neighborhood greeting cards and an expanded collection of reversible leather bracelets.

Lina Raymond Show at Portalis for November

Night Begins (16 x 20, acrylic on canvas board)
Not since her epic 2010 show Bearing Witness / adaption have we had such a collection of Lina Raymond paintings. That show featured lost landmarks of Ballard: Sunset Bowl, Denny's, Ballard Camera, Abraxis Books and the like.

This show, Lina Raymond: On The Avenue, showcases the spirit of Ballard Avenue.
In the artist's words:

In a series that will take 2 more years to complete, this show presents the first paintings in which I attempt to capture this old fishing village that I have lovingly come to call home. Although my approach was initially inspired from impressionistic works such as Pierre Bonnard’s paintings of Monmarte (painted not long after these Ballard buildings were built), my affection for this spot at this moment in time has led me to producing more tediously detailed (and more contemporary) results. They are all acrylic on canvas &/or hardboard, and depict Ballard Avenue in Fall and Winter. The next round of pieces will be of the Avenue in Spring and Summer.

Lewis LaBrash Acrylics at Ballard Beer Company in November

labrashe' original acrylic on canvas Size 18 x 18

Early in his career as an artist most of the work Lewis LaBrash did was through music and painting, after which he went on to a 30 year career in custom design of textiles. 
In recent years he has returned to painting.  
The goal of these new pieces is to have a more organic fluid flow to them. This is to soften the overall texture of a given space. 

The Tell-Tale Heart Glow-In-The-Dark Art Exhibition at Factory vs. Academy for November ArtWalk

Joe Reno and one of his "mystic" eyes

"...and the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
on the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
and his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
and the lamp-light o'er him streaming
throws his shadow on the floor;
and my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor"
shall be lifted - Nevermore!

Here is a show dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe's classic horror tale. Featuring paintings and assemblages by local legend Joe Reno and papier mache object's d'art by Michael Matewauk.
The companion The Tell -Tale Heart audiobook, narrated by Reno, is available on iTunes.

Factory vs. Academy is a series of collaborations between artists and writers. Exhibitions revolve around a theme and feature the work of local artists and indie authors.
