Art Up Phinneywood Artwalk: Fri, March 9 from 6 - 9pm

A1 Piano: 7020 Greenwood Ave N
Paul Knutzen is a local artist who grew up in Seattle and currently lives on Beacon Hill. After attending art school in Seattle, Paul spent over a decade in the video game industry designing and developing 3d environments. Much of his work reflects a strong affinity for architecture and the organic nature that can be seen in it.

“When I was a kid I was captivated with the Surrealists and how differently people could perceive the world. When I can’t come up with something to work on I’ll grab a camera and wander the different areas of the city, checking out buildings, trains, signage, and graffiti; the eclectic blend of people, dizzying color, and clamor of the streets is always inspiring.” Artist Present.

Bherd Studios Gallery (Greenwood Collective)
8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite 1
Look Up Here celebrates 5 years of exhibits at Bherd Studios Gallery and features 33 Pacific NW artists who have been an integral part of the gallery and the Seattle art scene. In addition to the exhibit, a book under the same title features all 33 artists with a book signing event in April. The belief that the Seattle art scene is ripe for recognition has been Bherd's main mission to promote the promising talents of local urban and contemporary artists. While the gallery has shown well over a hundred different artists throughout the last 5 years, these 33 artists have been especially productive within their own careers and have been involved within the art community through creating events and supporting other artists along the way. Many of these artists have also participated in multiple projects, exhibits, and curated shows at the gallery, which truly shows their passion for their work and for their peers.

“The range of media is extensive, from aerosol spray, acrylic, and oil paint, to stencil, pen & ink drawing, collage, sculpture, photography, encaustic, and street-based installation and performance. In just five years, Bherd has created a rich mixture of both lowbrow and highbrow that they bring together under the “urban and contemporary” umbrella. There’s also a fascinating hybrid or cyborg quality to much of the flora and fauna where organic shapes are grafted on to humans, machines, or robots. Nature also appears as a series of scientific specimens, and there’s a wonderful, collective take on the 19th century (Victorian period), with gothic horror, ornate frames, and steampunk paraphernalia.” David Francis (excerpted from Look Up Here, the book)

Ceres: 7102 Greenwood Ave N
Suze has been drawing all her life. After an initial undergraduate degree, she pursued fifth-year studies in printmaking and ceramics at the University of Washington. Her professional career has included the graphic design of printed materials and interface designs for commercial and prototype software applications. In the last few years she has devoted herself to the watercolor medium.

She carries her paints into Washington’s Cascade Mountains, the Canadian Rockies, by the shores of the Columbia River, underneath the overhangs of barns, to the ledges of the Grand Canyon – in short, throughout the North American West.

From traditional landscape sketches –she calls them her love letters to the planet -- to large scale industrial subjects, she finds intense visual experience to capture everywhere she looks. Artist Present.

About the artist: I am very much an abstract contemporary artist and expert colorist with a love for working on a very large scale. All of my original signature style abstract contemporary artwork is created with a palette knife on gallery back wrapped stretched canvas. My palette always includes textures with impasto, iridescent, metallic's, and pure pigments, which make the changes of natural light an important component of my art. I studied art, interior design and have sold large scale pieces. Artists present.
