Martyr Sauce Pioneer Square
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Sept. 8 2016
Martyr Sauce's first exhibit in its new location will feature Blood Over Square: new works by Elizabeth Lopez. The opening reception—on the tail end of First Thursday Art Walk and concurrent with the opening of the Seattle Art Fair—promises music from The Hollers.
About the exhibit, the artist writes: "It's times like this - everyone scrambling to have the last, loudest word - that I find myself passionately exposing my innermost thoughts and ideas. And while I want to share, I also want to bury these ideas, rushing to delete them. My thoughts, my being, my loves, my frustrations, my body… It all has been here, why should I hide it all now and for whom? It is fitting that I am showing this body of work at the new Martyr Sauce space; now located in the epicenter of art galleries in the oldest part of Seattle, underground. Hidden in plain sight, like all of us. This work is about wanting to scream when you can only muster a mumble; wanting to run when you realize you're lying down. Where am I? This is right about now. I want to share and talk about this with you - and at the same time, cover it all up."
