March Gallery Show | Midnight Sun - Todd Mires & Re-lationship - Aleeta Renee Jones

Our March gallery show will feature two artist shows combined. See descriptions below of the two shows.

MIDNIGHT SUN | TODD MIRES

After midnight most people are asleep and the buzz of the world is quiet, I become open and awake. Midnight Sun represents this feeling and the work I produce as a result.

Todd Mires, Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

ToddMires.jpg

Painting abstract art is my addiction and meditation. I’m addicted to the smell of blank canvas, to the infinite possibilities within it. When I paint there is the feeling like I’m desperately searching for something. I don’t necessarily know what I’m looking for but it’s the search that keeps me coming back. It is a mystery I may never solve, but this addiction tempts me to compulsively continue my search. In my meditation I try to balance spontaneity and restraint—let things flow and evolve, while simultaneously trusting my judgement to know when to stop. My process follows this practice. I paint organically, non-linear and devoid of a plan for the outcome. While painting there’s a feeling of digging and searching for significance to reveal itself. My job is to then capture it, but using restraint and self-control to stop in the right moment is the most difficult part of the process. Some of my paintings resemble nature, space or organic material, but I always approach a piece from a non-representational standpoint. Texture and its relationship with light fascinates me and there is an elusive and mysterious quality to the depth and contrast that texture creates. My aim as a painter is to structure the colors, shapes, texture and light in a compositionally significant manner to highlight this mystery through ethereal and mystical imagery.

RE-LATIONSHIP: MIXED MEDIA SCULPTURE | ALEETA RENEE JONES

Relationship: the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or state of being connected

Aleeta Renee Jones, Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

Aleeta.jpg

Aleeta Renee Jones presents her large scale mixed media sculpture on the theme of relationship: to self, others, and the environment. This is her first exhibition in nearly a decade and her first ever in Spokane.

Her layered pieces utilize unconventional materials such as glass, steel, encaustic (beeswax & damar resin), and fiber, in combination with found objects to evoke the intended feeling. Using organic materials set against hard materials such as glass and metal, she finds a metaphor for life - its strength and fragility. She simultaneously explores the corporeal as well as the ethereal.

Her works are personal and emotional narratives yet also universal in theme. The titles give clues: “Re-birth from the Marrow”, “A Magical Re-connection After Many Years”, and “Dark Waters”. “Dark Water” was inspired by the horrific Deep Horizon oil spill. It’s essentially a prayer for our oceans.

Each is suspended from the ceiling giving a quiet poetic and mysterious aura. Each piece can be viewed as a poem or a song, evoking feeling rather than words.

Renee holds an M.A. in Sculpture from San Francisco State University where she studied with several well-known sculptors: Stephen DeStaebler, Douglas Holmes, and Kathy Goodell. After graduating, she created and ran a small organic farm in Portland, Oregon, while continuing to pursue her art. She recently relocated to Spokane. Renee is influenced by the artists she studied with and inspired by Eva Hesse, Petah Coyne and many others.

Workshop | Relief Print with Reinaldo Gil Zambrano

Relief-while in kindergarten, carving a potato to create a stamp introduced many of us indirectly to the work of printing. Now, you will be practicing the grown-up version of this process by drawing and carving a matrix out of linoleum to later print multiple of your desired design. In this workshop participants will learn how to take an idea on a journey from a sketch, to carved block to graphically printed matter showing you the drawing, carving and inking approaches to materialize your ideas.

WORKSHOP | Dry-Point with Margot Casstevens

Dry-point is a print process from the 15th century that mimics drawing. The image is created by scratching into a soft surface with a steel needle, rubbing ink into the incised lines and running the inked plate through an etching press. The image usually has a soft pencil look as the ink is held both in the incised line and in the 'burr' created by the scratching process.

WORKSHOP | Monotype with Mary Farrell
Apr

10:00 AM10:00

WORKSHOP | Monotype with Mary Farrell

Monotype is a very painterly method of printmaking. The term monotype simply refers to a single (as opposed to an editioned) image produced from a matrix that doesn’t hold a repeatable image. In this workshop, participants will learn how to draw an image into an inked plate and pull both a print and two “ghost” prints; how to work with layers of color and stencils and how to easily register one layer to the next.

March Gallery Show | Midnight Sun - Todd Mires & Re-lationship - Aleeta Renee Jones

Our March gallery show will feature two artist shows combined. See descriptions below of the two shows.

MIDNIGHT SUN | TODD MIRES

After midnight most people are asleep and the buzz of the world is quiet, I become open and awake. Midnight Sun represents this feeling and the work I produce as a result.

Todd Mires, Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

ToddMires.jpg

Painting abstract art is my addiction and meditation. I’m addicted to the smell of blank canvas, to the infinite possibilities within it. When I paint there is the feeling like I’m desperately searching for something. I don’t necessarily know what I’m looking for but it’s the search that keeps me coming back. It is a mystery I may never solve, but this addiction tempts me to compulsively continue my search. In my meditation I try to balance spontaneity and restraint—let things flow and evolve, while simultaneously trusting my judgement to know when to stop. My process follows this practice. I paint organically, non-linear and devoid of a plan for the outcome. While painting there’s a feeling of digging and searching for significance to reveal itself. My job is to then capture it, but using restraint and self-control to stop in the right moment is the most difficult part of the process. Some of my paintings resemble nature, space or organic material, but I always approach a piece from a non-representational standpoint. Texture and its relationship with light fascinates me and there is an elusive and mysterious quality to the depth and contrast that texture creates. My aim as a painter is to structure the colors, shapes, texture and light in a compositionally significant manner to highlight this mystery through ethereal and mystical imagery.

RE-LATIONSHIP: MIXED MEDIA SCULPTURE | ALEETA RENEE JONES

Relationship: the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or state of being connected

Aleeta Renee Jones, Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

Aleeta.jpg

Aleeta Renee Jones presents her large scale mixed media sculpture on the theme of relationship: to self, others, and the environment. This is her first exhibition in nearly a decade and her first ever in Spokane.

Her layered pieces utilize unconventional materials such as glass, steel, encaustic (beeswax & damar resin), and fiber, in combination with found objects to evoke the intended feeling. Using organic materials set against hard materials such as glass and metal, she finds a metaphor for life - its strength and fragility. She simultaneously explores the corporeal as well as the ethereal.

Her works are personal and emotional narratives yet also universal in theme. The titles give clues: “Re-birth from the Marrow”, “A Magical Re-connection After Many Years”, and “Dark Waters”. “Dark Water” was inspired by the horrific Deep Horizon oil spill. It’s essentially a prayer for our oceans.

Each is suspended from the ceiling giving a quiet poetic and mysterious aura. Each piece can be viewed as a poem or a song, evoking feeling rather than words.

Renee holds an M.A. in Sculpture from San Francisco State University where she studied with several well-known sculptors: Stephen DeStaebler, Douglas Holmes, and Kathy Goodell. After graduating, she created and ran a small organic farm in Portland, Oregon, while continuing to pursue her art. She recently relocated to Spokane. Renee is influenced by the artists she studied with and inspired by Eva Hesse, Petah Coyne and many others.

March First Friday | Midnight Sun - Todd Mires & Re-lationship - Aleeta Renee Jones

Our March gallery show will feature two artist shows combined. See descriptions below of the two shows.

MIDNIGHT SUN | TODD MIRES

After midnight most people are asleep and the buzz of the world is quiet, I become open and awake. Midnight Sun represents this feeling and the work I produce as a result.

Todd Mires, Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

ToddMires.jpg

Painting abstract art is my addiction and meditation. I’m addicted to the smell of blank canvas, to the infinite possibilities within it. When I paint there is the feeling like I’m desperately searching for something. I don’t necessarily know what I’m looking for but it’s the search that keeps me coming back. It is a mystery I may never solve, but this addiction tempts me to compulsively continue my search. In my meditation I try to balance spontaneity and restraint—let things flow and evolve, while simultaneously trusting my judgement to know when to stop. My process follows this practice. I paint organically, non-linear and devoid of a plan for the outcome. While painting there’s a feeling of digging and searching for significance to reveal itself. My job is to then capture it, but using restraint and self-control to stop in the right moment is the most difficult part of the process. Some of my paintings resemble nature, space or organic material, but I always approach a piece from a non-representational standpoint. Texture and its relationship with light fascinates me and there is an elusive and mysterious quality to the depth and contrast that texture creates. My aim as a painter is to structure the colors, shapes, texture and light in a compositionally significant manner to highlight this mystery through ethereal and mystical imagery.

RE-LATIONSHIP: MIXED MEDIA SCULPTURE | ALEETA RENEE JONES

Relationship: the way in which two or more concepts, objects, or people are connected, or state of being connected

Aleeta Renee Jones, Artist

ARTIST STATEMENT

Aleeta.jpg

Aleeta Renee Jones presents her large scale mixed media sculpture on the theme of relationship: to self, others, and the environment. This is her first exhibition in nearly a decade and her first ever in Spokane.

Her layered pieces utilize unconventional materials such as glass, steel, encaustic (beeswax & damar resin), and fiber, in combination with found objects to evoke the intended feeling. Using organic materials set against hard materials such as glass and metal, she finds a metaphor for life - its strength and fragility. She simultaneously explores the corporeal as well as the ethereal.

Her works are personal and emotional narratives yet also universal in theme. The titles give clues: “Re-birth from the Marrow”, “A Magical Re-connection After Many Years”, and “Dark Waters”. “Dark Water” was inspired by the horrific Deep Horizon oil spill. It’s essentially a prayer for our oceans.

Each is suspended from the ceiling giving a quiet poetic and mysterious aura. Each piece can be viewed as a poem or a song, evoking feeling rather than words.

Renee holds an M.A. in Sculpture from San Francisco State University where she studied with several well-known sculptors: Stephen DeStaebler, Douglas Holmes, and Kathy Goodell. After graduating, she created and ran a small organic farm in Portland, Oregon, while continuing to pursue her art. She recently relocated to Spokane. Renee is influenced by the artists she studied with and inspired by Eva Hesse, Petah Coyne and many others.

Scrutinearsighted | RICHard SMOLinski

Scrutinearsighted

Scrutinearsighted responds to the current wave of “Toxic White Masculinity” evident in the Trump administration, the UK’s accidental “Brexit” referendum and the deluge of sexual misconduct revelations that inspired the #MeToo movement.  Combining the notion of the “scrutineer” (an official appointed to ensure that various competitions’ rules and regulations are meet by their combatants) with the condition of “nearsightedness” (or myopia where the eye can focus upon nearby subjects but blurs when greater distances are observed), the project reflects a milieu of biased, opportunistic ideologies and coercive discourse. The installation’s unpredictable mix of drawing, painting and textual components provides audiences with a complex and condensed view of our contemporary predicament; rather than representing easily recognizable contemporary figures, however, the project considers socio-political ills as systemic and stretching beyond their contemporary manifestations, so its caricatures blend a number of power-mad authoritarian tropes from across time and around the globe. The imagery’s palette (a black, white and grey tonal range) is used to invoke both the extremes of opinion and action, and all the ambiguous and ambivalent compromises and equivocations that are part of contemporary life. 

The amassed imagery forms unstable and unpredictable continuums and hierarchies on the gallery’s walls, with the imagery seeming to spill from surface to surface before abruptly shifting tone and direction as it offers divergent and dissenting perspectives. Resembling a corrupted tableau, a tattered scroll or a violently undulating graph, the installation envelops the viewer, situating them within an unfolding incident. This installation format offers its audience a paradox echoing the project’s title—the details of various struggles are visible up-close, but obscured as one tries to view the series’ full breadth and absorb its full implications.

The installation’s unpredictable mix of drawing, painting and textual components provides audiences with a complex and condensed view of our contemporary predicament; rather than representing easily recognizable contemporary figures, however, the project considers socio-political ills as systemic and stretching beyond their contemporary manifestations, so its caricatures blend a number of power-mad authoritarian tropes from across time and around the globe. The imagery’s palette (a black, white and grey tonal range) is used to invoke both the extremes of opinion and action, and all the ambiguous and ambivalent compromises and equivocations that are part of contemporary life. 

The amassed imagery forms unstable and unpredictable continuums and hierarchies on the gallery’s walls, with the imagery seeming to spill from surface to surface before abruptly shifting tone and direction as it offers divergent and dissenting perspectives. Resembling a corrupted tableau, a tattered scroll or a violently undulating graph, the installation envelops the viewer, situating them within an unfolding incident. This installation format offers its audience a paradox echoing the project’s title—the details of various struggles are visible up-close, but obscured as one tries to view the series’ full breadth and absorb its full implications.

Cointagious Cointerventions

Can’t get enough coinage? Artist RICHard SMOLinski is hosting a hands-on workshop that employs portmanteau word-coinage technique that is evident in the installation’s title and throughout the imagery. The workshop offers participants the chance to explore language’s malleability and potential for creative renovation as they devise their own unique “Cointerventions.” Like a non-permanent and non-damaging form of “portable graffiti” or a decidedly low-tech form of “social messaging,” participants invent and produce personal “community improvement” signage to share with their community stimulate “social discourse.” This divergent signage does not monetize or commercialize common public space like advertising, but instead establishes it as a site for creative communication and generous sharing of perspectives.
