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….
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 http://www.dayabastor.com.
So. Don’t miss this show, come on by, we’re right in the heart of First Thursday in Pioneer Square.
