    PERFORMANCE

  10. Beer & Puppet Theatre
    Be forewarned: Someone who has attended one of these shows in the past tells me it was “extremely obscene” and possibly inappropriate for children. That may actually be the point: a press release describes the early show as “funny, surreal and violent fun for all ages.” The late show—which will apparently include “explicit puppet-on-puppet sex, and unspeakable acts with a sexy mule”—is (thankfully) adults only. Featured performers include a hairy clown, a family band, and a number of talented local puppeteers sure to both entertain and appall. KATIE HERZOG
    (University District, $8)

    READINGS & TALKS

  11. Heather Mayer: Beyond The Rebel Girl
    Heather Mayer peers behind the popular (predominantly male) image of the Industrial Workers of the World—or "Wobblies," an international labor union that was founded in 1905 in Chicago—to uncover the role that single and married women played in the movement in Seattle, Portland, Spokane, and smaller Northwest towns. This sounds like a refreshing corrective.
    (Lake Forest Park, free)

  12. Lindsey Freeman: This Atom Bomb in Me
    Lindsey Freeman's childhood must have been weirder than most. She grew up in and near Oak Ridge, Tennessee, a secret uranium-enriching town during the Manhattan Project. According to the book description, Oak Ridge's facilities "add[ed] something to each and every bomb in the United States arsenal." Hear Freeman read her reminiscences of a kid's-eye view of this strange time.
    (Downtown, free)

  13. Nickole Brown and Jessica Jacobs
    If you think of poetry as something over-precious and pretentious, read Nickole Brown's "The Scat of It" (2018), which is about exactly what you think it is: "The shit of it, the slick of it, the beetle’s tumbling joy / the bear’s berry slush of it, the coyote’s ghost white dry of it—undigested fur, nothing more / hot-pressed into a turd—that nothing-wasted prayer." How's that for rich nature imagery? Brown is the author of the collections Sister and Fanny Says as well as the recent chapbook To Those Who Were Our First Gods. She'll read tonight with her wife Jessica Jacobs (Take Me with You, Wherever You’re Going), past winner of the New Mexico Book Award in Poetry and a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. JOULE ZELMAN
    (Wallingford, free)

  14. Nikkita Oliver: Pebbles in My Shoes

Outline and its sequels, Transit and Kudos, have together racked up about a dozen mentions and awards, including Vogue, NPR, the New Yorker, and the Guardian's Best Book of the Year.

    (University District, free)

    VISUAL ART

  18. Chelsea Ryoko Wong: Maximalist in Motion
    San Francisco–based artist Chelsea Ryoko Wong is interested in urban culture. Streets, crowds, sidewalks outside of yoga studios, supermarkets, parks. Using vibrant hues and mediums like gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil, Wong brings these diverse scenes to life. There’s a text element to her work as well, with her figures wearing clothing that say things like “WOMEN’S RIGHTS ARE SEXY,” “DRIVIN’ A JAGUAR SEDAN,” or “LOST FLAMENCO DANCER.” In a time when humanity seems to be more at odds with itself than ever (though, if I’m being real, humanity has always been at odds with itself), Wong’s work is like a cloud break on a warm day. Reminding you that we are all part of a community and that we really should look out for one another. JASMYNE KEIMIG
    (Pioneer Square, free)
    Closing Saturday

  19. Mary Coss: Groundswell
    Mary Coss spent two years working with Roger Fuller, a spatial ecologist at Western Washington University, examining the dangerously increased salinity levels encroaching on local estuaries. Estuaries are where river, land, and ocean meet and mix—for instance, in the Skagit Valley, one of our fresh-water resources. On the left side of the gallery is an installation called Silent Salinity, a ghost meadow (as the artist calls it) made of 300 pieces of hand-tied wire sedge, a grass-like plant, dipped in abaca pulp, a type of fiber. The ghost meadow in the gallery consists of crusted layers of salt, out of which stick salt-casted things like kelp, barnacles, and other organic matter. The other day in the gallery, Coss was in the middle of installing a giant wave of tulle overhead. It's meant to represent Mother Nature fighting back. "Ultimately, the water will be here," Coss said, referring to her wave specifically and the future of this imperiled planet more generally. "We have a window where we have the opportunity to turn things around or not. And if we don't, we probably won't be here, but the water will." JASMYNE KEIMIG
    (Pioneer Square, free)
    Closing Saturday

    (Capitol Hill, free)
    Closing Saturday

  22. Swoon: Every Portrait Is a Vessel
    “Every portrait is a vessel” is an interesting proposition. My brain begins to fill in the rest of the sentence. Every portrait is a vessel of love. A vessel of self. A vessel of truth. Every Portrait Is a Vessel is the first solo exhibition by Swoon (aka Caledonia Curry) in the Pacific Northwest. Swoon is a legendary street artist, most famous for her portraiture-based artwork and large-scale installations. At Treason, she’ll be showing a mix of new and old pieces in a range of formats, from music boxes to mixed-media pieces. JASMYNE KEIMIG

    (Redmond, free)
    Closing Sunday

  29. Veronica Mortellaro: New and Recent Work
    Indifference and beauty can be a terrifying combination. I think, as a society, beautiful things are allowed to exist in two ways: with arrogance or with complete innocence. Beauty any other way falls into the uncanny valley—recognizable, but a bit off. Veronica Mortellaro’s stony, beautiful figures are frightening in that their beauty is something accepted and not to be dwelled any further on. The medium they are portrayed in, watercolor, makes them feel so fragile, so permeable, that you halfway hope they’ll manage to soak into you. JASMYNE KEIMIG
    (Capitol Hill, free)
    Closing Sunday
