11th Annual Holiday Mini Exhibit at Ghost Gallery in Seattle.
“not afraid of…
After being confronted last autumn with some very scary things, I started drawing images which named things I was NOT afraid of, in order to help calm myself and restore my sense of safety and power. The boxwood wreath is always the first drawn element, providing a safe circle to begin in. In the spirit of a tarot deck, this series now is named only with Roman numerals, since I hope that your individual interpretation will lead to meanings which have resonance with your current moment.”
“I’m a discourse surfer in theater, dance, film, and visual art. I do production design and set decoration for motion pictures, design sets for live performance as well as create title sequences. I draw and paint, and lately have started to learn how to bend neon. I enjoy collaboration. I believe that when they censor our words, visual art will be our path of resistance.”
The Ghost Gallery project was founded in December 2006 by independent curator/event planner Laurie Kearney. She has curated and hosted art exhibits, auctions, benefits and music events at various venues over the past 11 years including the Pretty Parlor, Solo Bar, Saint John’s Bar & Eatery, Stylus Salon & Spa, Neumos, McLeod Residence, Rocco’s in Belltown, Capitol Hill Block Party, Havana, Edie’s Shoes and more.
Ghost Gallery acquired a unique brick & mortar space in Capitol Hill in April 2010. Come visit us! There is no entrance fee to see exhibits on view.
