#tarplife

JoEllen Wang

A note from the Director:

#tarplife was scheduled to run at Gallery 110 from April 2 – May 2, but has been delayed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This exhibition was conceptualized last year–long before the first reported cases of the novel coronavirus. Eerily, the ideas explored in JoEllen Wang’s work are more relevant now than ever as we have seen our way of life shift dramatically overnight in the days following multiple cities and states issuing stay-at-home orders. #tarplife will appear in Gallery 110 later this year (exact dates not yet determined), but until then, we are pleased to offer this small preview of the exhibition.

In lieu of First Thursday, a virtual artwalk was streamed for this and several other art exhibitions in Seattle. Viewers can stream the video at https://bythehour.live.

Island Paintings II – Landscapes of the Pacific Northwest Coast

David Haughton

March 5 – May 2

First Thursday: March 5, 5 – 8pm
*please be advised the gallery will open at 2pm on March 5th, please contact director@gallery110.com for an earlier appointment*

Artist’s Reception: Friday, March 6, 5 – 7pm

‘Island Paintings’ are new landscapes of the British Columbia and Washington coasts.

There is something intensely evocative about islands: each its own world, distinct yet familiar. Traveling the waters between them by ferry or small boat, one thrums with anticipation of a new land to explore, and the new loves and adventures one may experience.

Work on these island paintings began over a decade ago, but I can trace their true origin back to 1975, voyaging alone for the first time, free camping on ridges overlooking the Aegean and its many islands, experiencing the joy and wonder of each dawn. Over the decades, with backpack and by bicycle, I explored most of the Greek islands, painting as I went. I am now working my way around the isles of British Columbia — and Washington State.

My mother’s mother came from the Greek island of Naxos. I have “island” in my DNA.

The work seen here is a brief visual commentary that refers mostly to urban landscapes. This project, tracking changes and the “New Topography”, began in earnest at the beginning of the last decade. It seemed timely given the warnings that cities were due to be reshaped to accommodate an economy that supports the technological age, meaning that infrastructures were going to be rebuilt so that cities could experience the population growth necessary to keep this new world order humming.

I began a habit of persistent walking and documenting buildings, neighborhoods and construction sites as an urban Street Photographer. Have always been interested in the decisions made that argue against keeping an existing sense of place in favor of creating more density. Am concerned about gentrification that results in shifting or losing the cultural foundation of a neighborhood. I am also interested in bringing to the forefront clues about anonymous people seen and how they move in impersonal spaces or through a concrete, steel and glass landscape. The urban environment often is hard edge and stark.

The photographs are mostly from Seattle. Some were seen in prior exhibitions at Gallery 110 or in other area shows. Others have never been seen in Seattle.

I make unique prints or small editions of 5. I am not interested in mass production. All this work is printed with pigment ink on rag papers meaning it should last beyond most of our lifetimes if kept out of intense light. These images, although quasi-documentary and interpretive, are fine art and not so different than prints made using photographic techniques part of the printmaker’s edition… like a photo etching or gravure. Both require planning and decisions about composition as well as technical skill. Yes, photos are everywhere and everyone seems to be taking them. Intent and process though give meaning to the work and that is the clue.

A Pet Project

1st annual fundraiser exhibition benefiting Pioneer Square’s Doney Coe Pet Clinic.
December 5 – 28, 2019
Exhibition Reception: December 28, 5 – 9 pm

Every year, the Doney Coe Pet Clinic helps over a thousand families experiencing homelessness in an unconventional, but immensely significant way: by offering free veterinary services and resources to homeless and low income families. 100% Volunteer-run, the Doney Coe Pet Clinic opens its doors in Pioneer Square every other Saturday, starting at 1pm. Their services are so valuable to those they help, that families often start lining up at 8am, rain or shine, waiting hours to receive care for their pets, everything ranging from wellness checks to flea treatments to vaccinations and more. Many pet owners experiencing homelessness are likely to tend to their animal companion’s needs before their own. Continue reading
