February 13th 2016 Artwalk Artists

Couch Seattle
5423 Ballard Ave NW 

Artist, Jay Alexander 
"I began painting in 2002. Aside from a few art classes as an undergraduate, I have little formal training in painting and I am primarily self-taught. I became interested in seascapes and city scenes in 2006 when I moved from the Midwest to the outskirts of NYC. More recently, I have been more interested in the exploration of the abstract expression of urban subjects and geometric designs."

Artist of the Month: Kara Queen

Featured Artist of the Month: Zuzana "Zuzko" Korbelarova, Handcrafted Sterling Silver Jewelry.

Zuzana Korbelarova (Zuzko) is a Seattle based jewelry designer, originally from the Czech Republic. She designs and creates jewelry primarily from sterling silver and hand selected semiprecious gems. She patina's her silver and then polishes it back up to bring out the depth of the metal for a feel that has been worn and loved for a long time. Zuzana's designs are inspired by simple lines, different textures and most of all movement that brings the jewelry to life when worn. All of her original designs are hand crafted and fabricated in her Vashon Island studio.

BallardWorks Exhibits "Fresh Art for 2016"
Saturday, February 13th, 2016  6:00pm-9:00pm
BallardWorks, 2856 NW Market St., Seattle 98107

"Fresh Art for 2016" features artwork by our Friends and Tenants. This 
exhibit features some especially fine work from guest artists new to us. 
We are especially amazed at the Shards of Ice Lamps which have 
constantly changing complex colors reflecting and refracting within a 
highly textured transparent and translucent lamp. The shapes resemble 
the hoar frost one sees on the trees at the tops of mountains in 
midwinter lit by an Aurora Borealis.  Come see for yourself and make 
your opinion known! February is always a good time to relax after the 
holidays and take your time strolling our exhibition spaces and open 
studios which are warm and rain free!

Annie's Art & Frame
From the artist:  My name is Gabriel, I typically work in drawing and painting. My mediums are charcoals on wood and paper. I have always been inspired by artists growing up, the whole process and build of a painting has always sparked curiosity. I use art to express my moods or just thoughts that come to mind intuitively and in some indirect way. Some drawings describe pain and some are just random.. I just draw. Freestyle drawing is something I really love to do. I like feeling the moment, to just create what you feel or dont feel at all. I make a few marks and embrace the whole process.

Gabriel Marquez is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in charcoals and mixed media fabric painting. Other mediums include photography, sculpture and graphic design but with more focus on illustration. Gabriel graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with a BFA in Studio Art in 2012. He studied painting and graphic design. Gabriel Marquez was born in El Paso, Texas and joined the artist community of Seattle in 2014 and has since been collectively engaged in the arts.
