A Pet Project

1st annual fundraiser exhibition benefiting Pioneer Square’s Doney Coe Pet Clinic.

December 5 – 28, 2019

*Exhibition Reception: December 28, 5 – 9pm*


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. Though homeless pet owners are frequently stigmatized, studies have found that for many individuals experiencing homelessness, animal companionship provides them with connection, a sense of responsibility and a positive image of self-worth, all cornerstones of rehabilitation.

In short, the Doney Coe Pet Clinic doesn’t just help pets, it brings hope to families that might otherwise feel left behind or forgotten about by their city. This is why we are thrilled to be hosting a benefit exhibition by local artists, with the gallery’s proceeds going directly to Doney Coe Pet Clinic.

For the month of December, Gallery 110 will host works from the Pet Project in our North Gallery. We have also partnered with All the Best Pet Care for a satellite exhibition simultaneously at their Madison location.

Please join us on December 28th at Gallery 110 for a reception and fundraiser, where we will feature an expansion of the exhibition across the entire gallery for one night only where food and drink will be served and all purchases benefit Doney Coe and the 110 Pet Project. We would like to thank Georgetown Brewing Company for their generous contribution to this event.

If anyone would like to donate to Gallery 110’s Pet Project they are welcome to do so below. Or, feel free to donate directly to Doney Coe Pet Clinic

May You Be Happy

Kevin Marshall

November 7 – 30, 2019

First Thursday: November 7, 5 – 8pm
Artist Meet-and-Greet: November 30, 2 – 4pm

Transcentainment LLC announces a show by Kevin Marshall at Gallery 110 near Pioneer square. Marshall will be exhibiting functional fine art pottery made for modern life styles. He is offering cups, cellphone stands, vessels and more. His work is a combination of free form clay, tight geometric decoration, portraits and decorative glazes. Gallery 110 is located at 110 3rd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104.

Each artwork has a blessing written on it. The name of the show “May You be Happy” is one such blessing. The works are decorated with calligraphy in the Phagspa alphabet along with an English abridgement. The clay speaks. What does it say? “People have been making pottery for 20,000 years. Of all that ware, 99.9% of it is now shards.”

We are here for so short a time. The clay becomes rock. Rock lasts as close to forever as anything humans have made. The work is a reminder of our brief existences. The blessings written on them are to be used for this fleeting time. The pottery for sale is glazed stoneware. This is the hardest and most durable form of pottery. Some of the offerings have parts that are not stoneware. Some parts are made of polymer clay, glass, metal or wood.

Down the Rabbit Hole

November 7 – 30, 2019

First Thursday: November 7, 5 – 8pm
Artist Meet-and-Greet: November 30, 2 – 4pm

From the artist:

In this series I provide viewers abstract macrophotographic images of nature and with them the opportunity to delve into an exploration of the personal unknown. Their reactions to the images have the potential to increase viewers’ self-awareness of the psychic layers of themselves, others and the world.

We Were the Places That We Wanted to Go

Featuring Phantoms in the Front Yard

October 3 – November 2, 2019

First Thursday: October 3, 5 – 8pm
Artists’ Reception: October 5, 5 – 7:30pm

Gallery 110 welcomes the Vancouver-based collective, Phantoms in the Front Yard, with work by Michael Abraham, Jeremiah Birnbaum, Andrea Hooge, Paul Morstad, Jay Senetchko, Jonathan Sutton and guest artist Marcus MacLeod.

Reflecting on the concept of what constitutes legacy, We Were the Places That We Wanted to Go explores the theme of passing life’s lessons down from one generation to the next. Drawing from a range of contexts such as personal narrative, nostalgia, pop culture and climate change, as well as using the figure as subject, the Phantoms invite the viewer to interpret the relevance, permanence and effect legacy has on its inherent recipient.

Phantoms in the Front Yard (PITFY) is a figurative collective founded in 2010, with exhibitions occurring in alternative venues and dedicated to creating an experience of figurative art for all, not just among academics and industry veterans.

More information about the Phantoms can be found here.

Susan Christensen

September 5 – 28, 2019

First Thursday: September 5, 5 – 8pm
Artist’s Reception: September 14, 2 – 4pm

From the artist:

Over the months spent creating the drawings and paintings for this exhibit, I’ve been surprised again and again by how deeply my Mother’s consistent cultivation of her child’s imagination still influences me. Her encouragement and, at times, goading have certainly shaped the image maker I am today.

This body of work developed basically split into two ‘camps’. Mother’s story, my appreciation of who she was as her younger self and recollections of our shared story are generally rendered in softer colors with sparer details. Alongside these works of memory I give tribute to Mother’s indelible mark on my congenitally vivid imagination. These homages are highly detailed images in stronger colors with stranger themes: fantastic creatures, spirit and animal companions, figures with multiple faces, mask wearers, shamans. They do not ‘reproduce the visible’ rather they ‘make visible’ the realms of my imagination, to borrow from Paul Klee’s thought about Art and its purpose.

Mother – who is an artist herself but modestly never claims to be more than a crafter – named me Artist even before I became aware of that calling in myself. What a lifelong gift, this recognition. I hope these visual tales of mine provide a conduit worthy of transmitting her beneficence to all who engage with them.
