Current Exhibition

Seattle Presents: Juan Alonso-Rodríguez


January 19 — March 20, 2015

I recently had a dream my job was designing swimming pools based on my client's favorite shapes and colors, so I've decided to temporarily make that dream come true.

I will be asking for simple drawings of what you (willing participants) would imagine your ideal swimming pool to look like and will create various sized paintings based on the audience's input. The finished paintings will gradually fill the walls of the gallery.

Upcoming Exhibition

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. As part of the Waterfront Art Program, artists working in various art forms, media and genres have been asked to conduct short residencies on the waterfront, producing works that will be digitally archived and distributed through the city as posters, performances, or other ephemeral forms. 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.
