Kindra Nikole and Isobelle Ouzman bring the fantastical to life on a regular basis.  Lifting the veil of disbelief and separating the viewer from reality, their work explores our relationship with fairy tales by spinning elaborate, otherworldly narratives.  Coming together for the first time in this debut show, the two artists transform Urban Light Studios into a surreal visual playground.

You can read more details about this show on the Facebook invite here.

Art Walk Preview:  Amelia Sherritt SOLO Exhibition - this Fri 5/8 6-10pm!
May2015 6

This show is sure to appeal to all those wine-o's out there!  Amelia Sherritt has been rooted in the Seattle area for her entire life.  She finds inspiration in her city, as well as the surrounding beauty of Washington State.  Amelia began working with recycled art in 2007, her palette solely comprised of foils from emptied wine bottles.  Each piece of art contains hundreds if not thousands of recycled wine foils.

"I love to think of how each foil represents a memory or experience shared.  By re-purposing these foils, I am able to make what would normally be thrown away into something long lasting and beautiful."

Art Walk Preview:  Jeremy Kronbach Solo Exhibition - this Fri 3/13 6-10pm!
Mar2015 11

Jeremy Kronbach's body of work serves as a reflection of travel, echoing the idea of place.  Sometimes, his paintings suggest a physical location, other times compositions emerge from memories associated with the idea of a former home.  Inspired by West Coast abstract expressionists such as Richard Diebonkorn and Raimonds Staprans, Jeremy uses abstraction to process the difficulty of returning to the places he used to inhabit while attempting to connect the duality of past and present.

His goal is to depict the psychic states associated with a specific place as a means of self-knowledge and awareness,  His painting practice parallels the travel process, revealing nuanced layers and combining them with new information through the continued journey.

Urban Light Studios is proud to present the work of conceptual photographer Vera Pashkevich.

Vera’s work echoes a sense of childlike wonderment in a series of nighttime portraits lit by LEDs. Assembling large installations on location, she portrays the effects of modernity and light pollution by transforming otherwise untouched landscapes into meticulously composed sets. Often influenced by magical realist literature, her primary interest is encouraging the viewer to ask questions.

In her smaller works, she explores alternative processing/printing through experimental portraiture.

Urban Light Studios presents Elle Hanley, an American fine art photographer living and working in Seattle.  She emerged four years ago as a self-portrait artist and quickly expanded her work into the realms of fashion and surrealism.  On any given day, Elle can be found scouting locations on the outskirts of the city with her camera handy and her dog nearby.

Elle's scope of work addresses the natural tension between the human form and the space it occupies.  Her sets are often fantastical and ask the viewer to take a participatory role in imagining the narrative behind each piece.  Her work plays on the seemingly apparent contradiction between the modern process and the timless aesthetic, requiring the audience to momentarily suspend disbelief and engage in the storytelling process.

"He's're out...and I don't think I'm in either."

"I wrote a hit play. What have you done with your life?"

"I'm not talkin about dance lessons. I'm talkin about puttin a brick through the other guys' windsheild. I'm talkin about takin it out and choppin it up."

"Tell them if they don't get off my boat right now, there's going to be a major shit storm."

"I love you too but I'm going to mace you in the face!"

"In a way I'm almost glad that flood interrupted us because I don't like the toast I was giving"

"Jiminy cricket he flew the coop"

"Get your hands off my lobby boy!"

A director as brilliant and creative as this one, deserves an art walk dedicated to his masterpieces. Over 20 artists will come together for this show with their Wes Anderson inspired pieces. We will be screening some of the movies throughout the night and serving up some refreshments. Costums are VERY encouraged, especially since Halloween is right around the corner. In true Wes fashion, It will be an evening of beautifully warm tones and symmetry.
