Brewery Art Walk 2018 Part 8 Drawing Painting
Art is many things but often it is considered on a canvas, a painting or drawing. Brewery has many exemplary examples. These are just a few. Yes the walk was a few months ago. I apologize. It has been a few hard months.
Some are rather different. Blair Maffris includes sand, stone and objects into his work. His exhibit at the the Brewery art walk was entitled “Works in Sand.” Jim Scheel works in many mediums, including pen, pencil, ink, acrylic, and pastel. His work can be representational, and abstract. The work shown here is black and white done in pencil and ink, but he also works in color.
Some artists are surprising. They appear to be traditional trainers. However Burton Gray started in tradition, but has moved into the modern era of digital. This bunny is one of his very detailed and original works. There is also this very fanciful Joker style image.
Miki Yokoyama is an artist who works on canvas and murals, alone and with collaborators. Her work at the Brewery was abstract, organic, and geometric.
Theory Lab is also Liz Huston whose work can also be seen down town upstairs at the Last Book Store. Her work is very steam punk with gold antiquated frames around images that are surrealistic. Jill Sykes is an artist who started as a graphic designer and illustrator, but her work at the Walk was primarily paintings. Her paintings do poses a kind of graphic quality with colors of an earthy hue.
Cynda Valle paints with a surrealist style ordinary moments of life to create images that are bright and memorable, as can be seen by these two images that appear to contain the same man in the same hat.
Victoria Viramontes work is very detailed. She spends a great deal of time on them, constructing smaller versions before completing the larger completed works. the works are in black and white and shades of gray.
Robert Peluce was present in spirit. Aparently he passed away in 2004, but hsi estste was part of the show. He shared a space with a second painter, who unfortunately I seem to have misplaced their information. Peluce’s work are the darker mages of figures in masks with a surrealistic feel. The painting of the Asian figure in a kimono I am not sure who the artist is.
There is also an artist named Britta K who does drawings, acrlics, watercolors, and murals.
Unfortunately there were some artists whose name I did not acquire. One set of paintings was in a room called “theframacy.co” which is a cannabis company. The art resembled the zen circle of meditation.
The incredible painting done of a woman in the water with killer whales was done by Mason Geick.
Finally one of the artists specializes in botanical art, detailed illustrations of plants and flowers. Unfortunately I appear to have lost her card.
