Seattle Presents: Low Res

March 23 — May 15, 2015

Waterfront Seattle and the Office of Arts & Culture present work from Low Res: artists respond to the waterfront. Low Res, a series of short waterfront residencies that convenes artists in many disciplines to respond to the waterfront in a variety of ways, began in summer 2014. Experts in their fields, including thus far photography, poetry, and music, enlist a trio of artists to make work in response to the waterfront. The first residency featuring photography is under the direction of Michelle Dunn Marsh, the Executive Director of Photo Center NW. The first Low Res program features photographers Eirik Johnson, Canh Nguyen, and Alice Wheeler. Each photographer produced a portfolio of digital images and a single print for the City of Seattle's portable works collection. Their full portfolios will be presented alongside the individual prints. The artworks will be visible through the storefront windows and the gallery will be open to the public on Wednesdays and Thursdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
