Art Up Phinneywood artwalk: Fri, January 13 from 6-9pm


A-1 Piano Sales & Rentals: 7020 Greenwood Ave N
The work on display is from John Smither's recent series on loose canvas that depicts the struggle between old (cedar) and new (blackberry) in the back alleys of Seattle.

Assemble Gallery & Studio: 7406 Greenwood Ave N
Featuring the art of Jill Labieniec. Childhood memories of attic treasures nestled away in dusty corners and piled high in cardboard boxes is the inspiration for this show. Each piece tells a story, some through lazy afternoon daydreams while others rely on the viewer to create a narrative of their own out of a simple object.

This collection is made up of Gocco prints, a process similar to screen printing that uses a Japanese child’s toy to make detailed and sophisticated prints. Artist present.

"Between The Lines" is John Osgood’s latest series of work that focuses on his signature style of portraiture. His work features multi-faceted interpretations of emotion and perception by utilizing shared lines, forms and color between characters. He has worked diligently to create pieces that the viewer can study and be able to see new perspectives each time they go back. He purposefully plays with the subconscious mind, directing the audience both literally and figuratively. His goal with this series is to have you “reading between the lines” to find your own meaning within his work. Artist present.

The Showroom @Bherd Gallery (Greenwood Collective)
8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite 1
In The Showroom, Bherd represented artists Siolo Thompson, CASH & John Osgood featuring their recent works.

About the Artists:
Thompson is interested in exploring through image, the human need for narrative and our relationship to our own histories and the stories of other lives. In her paintings she imbues animals and robots with totemic powers and she attempts to bring a sense of history to all of her subjects. Osgood paints idiosyncratic characters and animals with a bold palette. He's a people watcher and enjoys spending time following the emotions that flicker throughout a person’s face during an interaction - his art is the expression of these every day emotions. CASH's latest work has been influenced by John James Audubon, Pablo Picasso, Jean Michel Basquiat, hand drawn fonts and street art and graffiti. He uses spray paint, acrylic, charcoal and oil pastels to create his works on canvas, paper, and wood. His paintings reflect the textures of the city, as well as the colors and spontaneity found in nature.

NEW VENUE! Umpqua Bank: 7120 Greenwood Ave N
Lynn enjoys all variations of art and has explored many techniques, but seems to lean toward collage and multidimensional acrylics. She is a self taught painter and has learned her techniques through many "happy accidents". Lynn created her mixed-media paintings to explore her interests and fascination with old buildings and unique architecture. She loves and admires anything old... something that has a story all its own. She enjoys abstract art, due to each individual that views a painting will have a different opinion or "view'. Lynn loves to hear what people "see" within her paintings, it motivates her to create more.
Her little "friends" are a new addition to her art family. She started with abstract... and am now exploring an interest in painting people. Lynn’s "people" are a little twisted... but, fun. Check out Lynn’s webite, www.hollowmoonz.com to learn more and see some of her work. Artist present.
