A Fat, Fat First Thursday
Seattle favorite Claire Cowie maps her process of painting in a large-scale, multi-panel, mixed-media work called Dead Reckoning
, referring to a rudimentary nautical navigation by which current position is estimated solely based on previous position. It creates a multiplication of distortions as you go. At James Harris
with Brazilian artist Efrain Almeida.
Plus a Walgreen's drugstore "super-aisle"
by Vivian Girls musician Cassie Ramone at 619 Western
, prints by the incomparable Kerry James Marshall and paintings by the incomparable Joseph Goldberg at Greg Kucera
, James Cicatko's channelings of 18th-century head sculptor
Franz Messerschmidt at Gallery4Culture
, the towering delicacy of Elena del Rivero at Lawrimore Project
, the utterly unnerving drawings of girls
by Mugi Takei at Cullom Gallery
, and the blood-tainted wood carvings of Pakistani artist Humaira Abid at ArtXChange
I am truly excited to see each and every one of those. I promise you: There'll be something worth freezing for. See our absolutely, totally, full, with-descriptions-and-images First Thursday listings right here.
