Shift warmly invites you to an artist talk by Jodi Waltier at noon during this month’s Second Saturday (April 14th) at Shift. Below is Waltier’s statement, a poetic glimpse to what you will hear!

Persistance, Iron-Cotton-Indigo

Artist Statement:
Listening to Pages Already Written

Floating  in  a  slurry  of  acrid  decay  these  were  the  lucky  ones  that  got  away. If  it  had  not  been  for  the  structural  degradation  of  the  neglected  trusty hardware  store  bucket that  had  seen  and  been  privy  to  way  too  much  back  breaking  underappreciated  labor over  the  course  of  a  quarter  of  a  century  these  soldiers  of  fortune  would  have  been  content to  be  tossed  into  some  Portland  cement  at  the  end  of  a  very  long  day  graced  with  the  resolve that  at  some  moment  a  lunatic  with  a  sledgehammer  might  get  the  hare-brained  idea  that  those cast  off  concrete  chunks  dumped  by  the  side  of  the  road  might  make  a  swell  retention  pond french  drain  to  gather  what  little  rainwater  visits  us these  days. Just  patient  in  their  contentment  that  what  goes  around  usually  comes  back  around  and  might even  come  in  handy…

Stephanie Hargrave
Artist Talk
Saturday February 10, 2018, 1:00-2:00pm

312 S. Washington St.
Seattle, WA 98104

Stephanie Hargrave will be giving an artist’s talk from 1-2 pm during this month’s Second Saturday (February 10th) at Shift.

In her show, Obeisance/Derision, Hargrave both honors and mocks. One section features an installation homage to nature using wood, encaustic, wire, paper, thread, yarn, sterling and clay. A second section features encaustic paintings and porcelain sculptures that mock the current administration. The body of work as a whole espouses the idea that art​ making itself is a political act. By persisting in a meaningful career that rarely pays well, ​the artist’s​ ​values are on display. She chose humble materials and employs several techniques considered ‘feminine’, like hand stitching and crochet, in response to the sexism within government, Hollywood, and throughout society.

gracz_e30_2kIn Land Marks, Carolyn Gracz explores the crossings and markings of humans on the landscape. She expertly combines elements of monoprint, etching and collage, tiny in individual scale, yet full of detail and open to viewer interpretation.

In Glittering City, Rachel Holloway’s paintings are a reaction to the local building boom. Straddling between representation and abstraction, her facades mimic rapid growth with skillful interplay between color, shapes, pattern, movement and light.
