CoCA LAB: Artist-in-Residence Adam Sekuler

CoCA Georgetown: Seattle Design Center | 5701 6th Ave. S | Suite 258 | Seattle WA 98108

CoCA Lab: Adam Sekuler, Artist in Residence, April 17 – May 5 2014

Introducing CoCA Lab, CoCA’s new artist residency program, in which we invite an artist, or group of artists, to transform our Georgetown gallery space into an art laboratory. Our first CoCA Lab resident is Seattle’s own award-winning filmmaker and curator, Adam Sekuler.

Adam is a filmmaker and curator, who has organized touring programs of retrospectives and premiere feature films throughout North America. His films have screened at festivals, museums, and galleries throughout the world. His short film Pathe Ballet won a prize at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

While in residence at CoCA, Adam is working on an exhibition of excerpts from his current documentary WORK IN PROGRESS, which documents the current state of the American workforce through two-minute, single-shot profiles of 45-80 laborers, showing their movements and patterns. He is using CoCA as a hub to investigate some of the industrial labor located along the Duwamish and in the South end of Seattle. A fundraiser for this project is currently underway and can be viewed/contributed to here.

Adam will be at the gallery most days, Tuesday-Friday, 10am-4pm. We are open to the public and encourage you to come down, explore the art and visit with the artist.

ARTBRIDGE: Jackson + Hoffman Plus “4 Years on the Hill” Anniversary at Ghost Gallery!

Ghost Gallery: 504 E Denny Way | Seattle WA 98122

ArtBridge: Jackson + Hoffman

On view from April 10, 2014 – May 4, 2014. Opening reception on Thursday, April 10 from 5-9pm during the BLITZ Capitol Hill Arts Walk.

Akiko Jackson and Jessica Hoffman showcase their work from the 2013-2014 ArtBridge Fellowship at Ghost Gallery in Seattle. Conceptually sophisticated and masterfully executed, the exhibition is a true celebration of emergent talent in our region.

About the 2013-14 fellowship:
Created as platform for advancing the work of emerging artists, the ArtBridge Fellowship at Pratt Fine Arts Center identifies artists with exceptional promise and gives them the tools to progress creatively and professionally. Over the course of a full year, Fellowships offer educational experiences, including creative and technical training, access to equipment, and an opportunity to engage with Pratt’s artistic community.

In 2013, thanks to generous support from Chihuly Garden and Glass, RBC Wealth Management, and Chihuly Studio, two Fellowships were awarded by jury to support the emergent voices of artists Jessica Hoffman and Akiko Jackson. Jessica and Akiko have truly exemplified the intent of the ArtBridge Fellowship; they have used their awards thoughtfully, gaining new skills and insights that have been applied to the creation of stunning new work.

For more about this year’s fellowship and Pratt Fine Arts Center.

Not only will this be a very exciting Art Walk event, it also marks four years since the Grand Opening of Ghost Gallery on Capitol Hill!

To celebrate, the gallery will be featuring work by some very special new and emerging artists and designers including Kimberly Hoppe, Cindy Steiler, Michael Alm, Uyen Tran-Gjerde, Gather Jewelry, Myrrh, new designs by Amanda Ilc, Beth Martini, Kim Merritt (Gritty), Nikki Jacoby, Sera Young, Sylvia Baba and more.

Your support is priceless! Visit during April, mention the password “Treasure” and receive a discount on your art or jewelry purchase that day. In addition, Ghost Memberships will be on offer for only $10, are good for a year and provide you with online access to exhibit previews (on our fancy new website!), new arrivals, jewelry sales and more.

The opening reception for ArtBridge: Jackson + Hoffman will take place on April 10th, 2014 from 5 to 9 PM.

 

PARALLELS: Tracy Boyd and Tatjana Pavicevic at AXIS Pioneer Square

AXIS Pioneer Square: 308 1st Avenue South | Seattle WA 98104

PARALLELS: Tracy Boyd and Tatjana Pavicevic

On view from April 3, 2014 – April 28, 2014. Opening reception on Thursday, April 3 from 5-9pm during the First Thursday art walk.

Gallery AXIS presents two artists with very distinct styles who’ve come together to explore the struggles of society and how they parallel with the internal struggles of the individual. Characterized by motion and her use of reclaimed tarps, Tracy Boyd’s life-sized paintings come alive. Her large, colorful animals symbolizing social domination contrast with Tatjana Pavicevic’s intimate graphite drawings. Pavicevic’s monochromatic work creates a sense of self-inquiry and explores subjective experiences and their parallels in the external world.

Originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Tatjana Pavicevic has lived in Seattle for ten years. She received a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts where she majored in painting and printmaking.

Tracy Boyd grew up in the 1970’s and 1980’s on a 66-acre old farm outside of Philadelphia, which allowed her to develop the ability to be independent and introspective. She received a BFA from Carnegie Mellon with an emphasis on Design.

The artists will be in attendance at the opening reception with a performance by Coriolis Dance taking place throughout the evening.
