August @ Shift: Patrice Donohue and Daya B. Astor

Is it summer yet?  Well, August tends to be on the seattle-hot end of the spectrum, which makes it the perfect time for a First Thursday art walk in Pioneer Square.  Shift is very pleased to offer for your viewing pleasure two artists who explore the senses in most engaging ways….

Patrice Donohue: Wax, Paper, Scissors at Shift Collaborative Studio August, 2012

Wax, Paper, Scissors: Patrice Donohue weaves, layers, breaks, stitches and marks the surface of her works, revealing a juxtaposition of light and dark, of things hidden and discovered, depth and the emergence of something new brought forth.  The surface of Donohue’s large pieces suggest a shift in awareness and perception.  For more information or to schedule an appointment outside of regular Shift Studio hours, contact the artist at

Daya B. Astor, Flavor at Shift Collaborative Studio, August, 2012

Flavor: Daya B. Astor explores the mingled sensation of smell and taste through color, texture, facial expression, text, and photos of international food markets–could anything be better for a summer show?  Using one news story about flavor as a springboard for investigating the topic, the viewer is witness to wide array of expression that flavor evokes.  For more information about Astor’s work, please visit her at

So.  Don’t miss this show, come on by, we’re right in the heart of First Thursday in Pioneer Square.
