September 12 – October 31
Art Opening: September 12 @6pm
Bherd Studios Gallery: 312 N 85th St, Suite 101, Seattle (Greenwood)
Featuring two solo shows from Seattle artists Ego & Jenny Dayton.
Ego’s work has a flair for slightly dark, whimsical creepiness, influenced by the macabre sides of tattoo culture, street art, and underground fine art.
Dayton creates both paintings and 3-d miniature scenes for this exhibition. Her work is message intense, compassion and respect for animals is the gospel she preaches but she does it quietly. The message is always there, but you have to unfold the layers of the work to see it clearly. Jenny uses images, Cyrillic text and other graphic elements to guide the invested viewer toward an important truth.

Introducing WEAVE Magazine, an arts publication highlighting and supporting the best of the Seattle urban and contemporary arts community!
The inaugural Spring/Summer 2014 issue, which recently launched officially at a party in Seattle, features interviews by Sarra Scherb with Seattle artists Adream de Valdivia, Robert Hardgrave, Kate Protage, Miguel Edwards, and Daniel Voelker.
The theme of this first issue, “Monochromes,” was inspired by the beauty that can be found all around us, even in the prevalent grays of Seattle winter. The works featured in this issue all reflect this theme and we are proud to spotlight Seattle artists whom we admire both professionally and personally. Our hope is that WEAVE Magazine will introduce you to new amazing artists and give you some deeper insight into artists you may already know.
