OLIVIA KNAPP at Ghost Gallery

On view through Sept. 8th, 2014

Ghost Gallery is pleased to present the original drawings of Seattle artist Olivia Knapp. Along with exhibiting a collection of large format, highly detailed pen and ink drawings, Olivia will also create an original mural inside the gallery.


About the artist:
Olivia Knapp’s intricate hand drawn pen and ink style is influenced by European line engravings of decorative relief and scientific specimens from the 16th and 17th centuries. Her tight cross hatching technique involves long slow and steady curved lines that articulate the surface contours of her subjects; creating supple and tangible imagery. These un-swelled lines incorporate a “line to dot” rendering method as well as an, extremely rare “dot and lozenge” rendering method. “Dot and lozenge” is a practice that was used by 16th century masters, in which a dot is placed in the center of a diamond shape made by a cross hatching pattern, helping to refine the transition between values.

Most of Olivia’s content explores the relationship between desire, reason, and circumstance. Her current body of work uses the head and heart as contrasting characters in an on going story.

Olivia studied at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Parsons The New School for Design, majoring in Fashion Design and receiving her BFA in 2006 from Parsons.


OF MARROW & LEAF: New Paper Cuts and Reliefs by Joey Bates

Of Marrow and Leaf: New Paper Cuts and Reliefs by Joey Bates

May 8, 2014 – June 9, 2014.

Joey Bates was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. He received his BFA in painting in 2005 at Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids, MI. Joey currently resides in Seattle, making art almost daily.

Artist Statement:
I find it compelling that some of the things we find beautiful and otherworldly can be so harmful to our well-being. As we trek through our yards, forests, and neighborhoods, we so often fail to acknowledge the plethora of plants that could wreak havoc on our innards.

Of Marrow and Leaf is a collection of cut paper pieces that explore the beauty of deadly plants in conjunction with the human figure. The central focus of my work has long been portraiture. I have traditionally practiced a highly particular dissection of the figure, and that breakdown resonates with the shapes and forms of plants.

“Castor Bean (Ricinus Communis)” by Joey Bates

My intention is for these images to evoke a sense of memento mori, the notion that death is constantly present. While the fragility of life is not a revolutionary idea, I value taking pause to reflect on this simultaneously vital and lethal fact. My hope is that these works inspire viewers to do so as well.

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.
