First Thursday Arts Walk – July 2014
The First Thursday Arts Walk in Seattle never disappoints and the July exhibits are no exception.
This month, I started out at Greg Kucera Gallery, where the ‘Kinetic Sculptures’ exhibit by artist, John Buck, is absolutely amazing. Massive, intricate, and extremely creative pieces. Well worth your time if you’re in Seattle. If you are unable to see them in Seattle or elsewhere, there is a great video interview of Mr. Buck on his website where you can see footage of some of his work, in action, literally.
Next, I came across the 220 & Change Building where SalaamGarage is exhibiting work from their project called “Long Road Home,” to foster conversation, advocacy and momentum around those who age out of the foster care system. Please stop by and take a look. This important work will be on display until September 1, 2014.
My last stop was Frederick Holmes and Company to see their group exhibition entitled RATIONAL/IRRATIONAL “Why We Do What We Do-Woppa-Do?” An interesting part of this exhibit is that if you have, or install, a QR reader on your phone, you can listen to 30-second videos from each artist on why they do what they do. Very fun.
And, the evening was topped off for many people by music and dancing in Occidental Park.
