BuildingC is Back on the Second Saturday ArtWalk

Terry Reed Photographs at The Scoop At Walter's November 14

Terry Reed, a commercial and fine art photographer in Seattle’s vibrant photography scene, will exhibit a series of new photographs this November. The group of 18 images is selected from a larger body of work created during the past year.

All 18 photographs seen in the show were first published on Instagram. Reed was one of 12 photographers from around the world who contributed to Stories and Pictures, a recent Instagram - Tumblr project that married storytelling with photographs. Nine pieces in the current show come from that project and showcase Reed’s writing and image-making talent.

Reed, who lives in Ballard, joined Instagram in 2013. He’s connected with far flung photographer friends. And, he’s found a passionate community of shooters from around the world who are struck by the quality of his images. “Instagram has been a nice surprise,” he said. “It’s been invigorating, there’s a lot of interesting people doing great work.

Monster Art and Clothing Shares Ryan Henry Ward for November 14 ArtWalk

Ryan Henry Ward's vision of creating primitive images with a dream-like, surreal quality is awake with life in this show.The natural rawness of the painting process  shows through his balanced, bright, and whimsical work.

His work has a combined feeling of neo pop and neo primitivism yet somehow lands in a genre of its own. He has been a muralist in Seattle since 2008 and has created  the largest public body of work in the history of the city.

BallardWorks Exhibits "Self Portraits--Original Selfies" in November

BallardWorks Exhibits "Self Portraits--Original Selfies"

Self Portraits--Original Selfies is the theme of our November show featuring artwork by our Tenants. This promises to be an amusing and amazing exhibit with all portraiture styles represented from cubist to realist. How do we picture ourselves? After all, that face looking back at us in the mirror is not how we appear to others. The mirror reverses our image, so if the artist paints his/her self portrait while looking in a mirror, it is not the face his/her friends are viewing. If the artist paints from a photo, it might or might not be the same view as others see. Come and consider the likeness of these personal works presented for your enjoyment.

Three floors of art studios and exhibition spaces open for the Art Walk Saturday, November 14, 2015. Open 6:00-9:00 pm.

Families with kids welcome. Enter through the 1st or 2nd floor doors on 30th Avenue. Includes painting, wood working, sculpture, wearable fiber art, encaustics, print making and more, all under one roof.

Horseshoe Features Abstract Artist Tara Flores in November

Abstraction gets me. There’s an immediacy to it. You don’t know what it is, what it “means” or what it is trying to convey for sure, but you feel it. It works outside the bounds of language. It cuts through the struggles entangled inside the modern human condition by bringing you back to your soul. Reminding you of you. Steeping you in emotion, knowing and connection.

Even if you don’t “get it,” it gets you.

I tried for a long time to figure out abstract art before I realized that to understand it is to feel it. Emotion understands it, not intellect.

Making these connections, to how we feel, what we want, what brings us joy. Well, its the whole point.
For me, a lot of these connections are made through the process of painting.

If you’d like to learn more about me, my art or experience along the creative path, visit my blog at Tara Flores or find me on social media (@tarafloresart).
