Made in the Northwest Visit Seattle Partner!
Now through 10/23/2014
Keyword: Museums, Visual Arts & Galleries Region: Downtown

SAM Gallery presents three Northwest artists who have been thinking about the influence of our natural surroundings and infusing their work with what they see: Linda Davidson, Nichole Dement, and Ryan Molenkamp. From the blurred landscapes of Davidson, to the sometimes exploding natural surroundings in Ryan Mokenkamp's paintings, these artists give you a new way of seeing what is all around us. Bringing us closer in, Dement often infuses her mixed media work with a close-up view of nature's details that we often miss.

Anne John: Here on Earth
Now through 10/26/2014
Keyword: Visual Arts & Galleries Region: Queen Anne / Seattle Center

John is a figurative painter inspired by the human nature of life. Here on Earth is an accumulation of animal images as they relate to our own predatory instincts for survival on the planet. She tries to portray humor within the allegory as a way to soften the blow of reality. The rabbits are understandably wary, the males in the woods appear clueless, and our protective angel who was the starting point of the series looks a bit angry.

A fictional 1920s duo, literally frozen in time while touring in Antarctica, thaws out nearly a century later to discover their original music has been co-opted throughout the years—and they're not going to stand for it. Wigs will fly as the two perform hits from the likes of Janis Joplin and Gloria Gaynor in the style of Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. It's a vintage cabaret with a twist of drag. Following a sold-out off-Broadway run and an international tour to Australia, Seattle natives Jerick Hoffer and Richard Andriessen bring this bawdy, rowdy musical revue home.
