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 patricedonohue@aol.com.

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 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.
