Each of these artists works in a unique representational style and this will be the first time each has shown in Seattle. Opening reception is Sunday July 19, 2-5pm and the show continues to September 27.
I saw an old wise bird, a symbol. It upset every fool inside me, unsettled my things and bound me lonely floating on empty pillows floating on empty logs floating on empty. There is no fortune to mention–between the sunrise and sunset, nothing fathoming. The rain is not landing though I know it falls while galaxies go ripped with reason and Neptune may have a fine fine fine fire. Why must they say oceans go from mother to panic? Seeming in such little ways little, my dreams here are alone; they must be lost (beautiful hands-off.) Consider me when you round the horn and sound a good morning emotion across and on and on and across the sea-shadow. Just know nothing can scare me. As a figure rises from the tide, another sinks with truth and chutes, like others.
