Serrah Russell and Maggie Carson Romano are two of the more poetic souls in Seattle art, and Pacific Motel is a display of Polaroids and shells and cast sand made when they spent a weekend in a roadside motel. It’s paired with a show with an equally endearing premise: SOIL member Seth Damm and high-school student Kazel Wood collaborating “to capture the uncertain period of time before a show, before an idea coalesces… Think pre-dawn. Think uncomfortable moments of uncertainty.” (SOIL Gallery, 112 Third Ave S,, noon–5 pm, free)
