In lieu of an opening reception, we will host a holiday party in December, you are invited. THE show will continue to January 12. Luke Armitstead is a ceramic sculptor living in Seattle. His work is a celebration of the possibilities that can be achieved for sculptural and utilitarian objects in clay. Luke’s work takes inspiration from both architecture and organic forms and references the idea that art can interact with and be derived from a particular place. Luke received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his Post Baccalaureate from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He has shown in Seattle, Chicago, Brooklyn and London. This is Luke’s first show at SEASON. Sean Pearson is a Seattle artist working in dystopic drawings and sculptures. A constant theme in his work is alienation from an obvious peer group and a reluctant acceptance into an Other and how this acceptance can happen naturally, slowly and without recognition. Sean graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, Florida, with additional studies through the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design, New York, New York. His work has been shown in Seattle, Brooklyn and Los Angeles, and written about in Animal New York and Art F City. This is Sean’s first show at SEASON.

“In March 2016 I began making digital drawings and posting them on Instagram each morning. I had planned to continue the ritual for one month and then use the images for a book project, but I find that, more than a year later, I’m still drawing and posting them each day. Initially, they were inspired by the common artists’ practice of showing images of paintings to one another by phone. I wanted to make original work that was actually intended to be seen exclusively on the phone, and practically could not be seen in any other way. I make the drawings directly in a phone app, using simple geometric shape tools. Sharing them on Instagram creates a layer of confusion. “How big are these? What is the medium? Where can I see them?” are questions viewers often ask. “On the phone,” I always tell them. “They are made on the phone, to be seen on the phone.” Sharon Butler
