VISUAL ART

26. Anna Mlasowsky: Noon
At the beginning of January, glass artist Anna Mlasowsky began her residency-style solo exhibition that involves making crystals and inviting the public to help her in creating her beautiful glass objects. And in February, the German artist will be installing the fruits of her labor in the gallery. Taking the title of the show, Noon (the middle ground between night and day), as a jumping-off point, and also using natural materials like glass, water, and salt, Mlasowsky “probes into the opposites in hope to discover balance.” She is the first artist in the gallery’s women-focused 2019 season.

30. Henry Jackson-Spieker: Sight Lines
There is something a bit anxiety-inducing about being in a gallery or museum. As if there’s some specific way you are meant to behave and even look at art in those kinds of spaces. The latest installation from Seattle-based Henry Jackson-Spieker is trying to disrupt and interrogate that very notion. Jackson-Spieker uses the windows of the gallery as the primary viewing perspective, creating a clear “sight line” made of lattice-string sculpture that can only be seen from outside the gallery, obstructing free movement inside the space itself. JASMYNE KEIMIG
(Pioneer Square, free)
