Recommended by Emily Pothast

In a recent exhibition at Juan Alonso’s Tashiro Kaplan Building studio, Elisheba Johnson—who KUOW has called an “artist you should know”—showed a series of paintings in which she had transcribed the details and images from local rental listings onto vintage pillowcases. Inspired by the process of hunting for a new apartment, Johnson’s tender, intimate mixed-media works reveal just how expensive Seattle’s real-estate market has become, and why affordable housing is increasingly unattainable for many. For her latest exhibit at Virago Gallery, Johnson is responding to how “society tells women from birth that their body is not their own.”
