Kindred Spirits – opening next Friday!

I liked Sarah Bear Miles the second I met her. Then I saw her art and then liked her even more! Her website says she, “gleans her inspiration from interacting with little forgotten things like snails and maple seed pods”. Really though, I think she draws her inspiration from deep forest magics that are openly hidden in every day life.
She introduced me to the fabulous artist Christopher Allman, who makes all of these fantastic dioramas and cut outs featuring wood land animals. His paintings are lovely in shades of umber, ochre, Prussian blue, and sap green – I love how some of the animals have little windows into their bodies showing their food.
Sarah, Christopher and I will have art work up through the month of February at Urban Light Studios which is part of the Greenwood Art Collective. If you haven’t been there you should go because it’s an amazingly beautiful space. Sarah will have a solo showing of new painting in the downstairs gallery which will include an opportunity to make a sheet fort.
There will be an opening during the Greenwood – Phinney Art Up Art Walk on Friday, February 11th, 2011 6-10pm. Urban Light Studios is located at 8537 Greenwood Ave | Seattle, Washington 98103 (map). Live music & wine tasting!
