Seattle’s missed Margot Quan Knight. She makes brilliant photographic images that hover on their surfaces, each like a corner you want to look around. After solo shows in 2008 and 2010 at James Harris Gallery, Quan Knight spent some years in London, but this quiet new show signals her return home. This time, her subject of experimentation is unlikely: doilies. She orders the floppy things from around the world on eBay, and when they arrive, embedded with grease and smells and stories of handmade care, they are, to her,“disgusting and amazing.” How do you picture that? See them in the middle of First Thursday art walk. (SOIL, 112 Third Ave S, soilart.org, noon–8 pm, free, through Aug 30)
