“No Witches Allowed” featuring the works of Sasha Barr and Megan Hall of WONDER THUNDER. No Witches Allowed is a collection of enchanted artwork by Seattle artists Meagan Hall and Sasha Barr of Wonder Thunder. Through screen-printing, collage, and some haphazard stitchery, Wonder Thunder battles superstitions, bad dreams, and other haunted nonsense. In this exploration, Wonder Thunder has challenged a number of old wives tales and myths, carelessly resting hats on beds and spitting in the mouths of dogs. This work is a testament to the power of these seemingly nonsensical beliefs and their grip on our fragile minds. Artist present.

Bherd Studios Gallery (Greenwood Collective)
8537 Greenwood Ave N, Suite 1
"Power in Numbers" features the contemporary print works of Seattle artists: Zach Bohnenkamp, Jen Bauer, Joey Katzer, Chris Rollins and Nate Stottrup. Many times printmaking is little understood by the layman, but a lot of the methods used in printmaking like wood-block cuts and engravings are an intense and tedious process. The outcome seems effortless in many people's eyes. Jen Bauer, who utilizes the engraving method, illustrates this point well in her artists statement...

"Printmakers spend days on end hunched over a piece of metal scratching away at it with another piece of metal until it kind of looks like something they might be going for, backwards. The tedium and labor are beneficial, however. The time it takes to make a print is as much time as it takes to contemplate and understand the subject, and this could generate the elevated and powerful subject matter prints are known for. Printmaking is an intellectual medium and printmakers are an intellectual sort, and needless to say intelligence is sometimes paired with a proportional degree of insanity. While the insanity may or may not lend some interest to the print, the question remains, was the artist insane before picking up printmaking, or was it the tedious and laborious process that made him/her that way? " Artists present.

Artist Statement:
I paint indiosyncratic characters with a bold palette in an urban art style mainly using acrylic and aerosol. I'm a people watcher and I enjoy spending time following the emotions that flicker throught a person's face during an interaction. I feel my art is the expression of these every day emotions and my collection of colorful and odd characters are inspired by life and the uncomfortable, forlorn and many times humorous circumstances that happen within it.

I also enjoy using vibrant contracting color palettes to elicit a "pop" factor, often juxtaposing bright vivid colors with depressing emotions to provide balance and to surprise the viewer. I think that peole enjoy looking at my work because they see something of themselves or people they know in my paintings, which often time eveokes a smile or a laugh.
