ZINC contemporary is proud to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Barbara Robertson. Robertson cites an early reverence for science, geometry and the natural world – drawing inspiration from repeating patterns that emerged from her grandmother’s quilt-making by hand – and signaling a universal order to her world. Raised in the Ozarks of Southern Missouri, the artist connects with the mathematics of natural objects and organic forms – finding balance and symbolism within a crystalline, cube, and columnar rock structures. After moving to Seattle to earn her Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington, Robertson began noticing the disappearance of her new city’s architectural heritage – as it was swiftly replaced by industrialized slabs of steel and concrete. Her geometric, architectural-based 2D and 3D works and animated films, seek to respond to the role of the built environment – much as the centuries-old art and architectural movement of Constructivism once did. In fact, the artist finds many parallels between the technological progress that occurred after World War I, and our current detachment from the environment and motivation towards technological advancement.

Fiber Fusion Exhibition Opens at Schack Art Center March 9th http://sdafiberfusionshow.org/ The show consists of 134 pieces from seventy-eight surface design artists and members of the Surface Design Association, an international organization of over 3,000 members.

The artists represent 39 Washington cities and towns. Artist techniques include fabric manipulation, hand and machine embroidery, painting, wet felting, shibori, bojagi, and botanical dyeing. Some of the unusual materials used include stainless steel, sock monkeys, gunpowder, vintage kimono, acrylic, newspapers, sand, wood, gut and hair. This is the culminating show of Fiber Fusion, a year-long juried travelling exhibition and celebration of textiles and surface design techniques at the Schack Art Center in Everett. The exhibition will be opening at the Schack Art Center on 2921 Hoyt Ave, Everett, WA on March 9th, 2017 with a reception from 5-8PM and runs through April 15, 2017. Local artists selected--SDA juried artists local to the area include: [Christina Fairley Erickson, Bellevue; Gale Whitney, Bellevue; Crystal A Edwards, Redmond; Maura Donegan, Issaquah; and Rebecca Wachtman, Renton.] Photos of their work can be found at http://sdafiberfusionshow.org/accepted-artists/ Where we have traveled to -- The show has travelled to three previous locations: Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend (February. 2017); VALA Art Center in Redmond, WA (November-January, 2017; and Allied Art Center in Richland, WA (June, 2016).

A textile is defined as any material that takes on the properties of cloth. Work can be functional or non-functional, and can be for the wall, the body or as decoration. The Fiber Fusion exhibition is underwritten by the Surface Design Association and sponsored by Blick Art Materials. The Surface Design Association is a non-profit arts organization founded in 1977 and is comprised of artists, students, educators, gallery owners and curators.

ZINC contemporary is proud to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Barbara Robertson. Robertson cites an early reverence for science, geometry and the natural world – drawing inspiration from repeating patterns that emerged from her grandmother’s quilt-making by hand – and signaling a universal order to her world. Raised in the Ozarks of Southern Missouri, the artist connects with the mathematics of natural objects and organic forms – finding balance and symbolism within a crystalline, cube, and columnar rock structures. After moving to Seattle to earn her Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington, Robertson began noticing the disappearance of her new city’s architectural heritage – as it was swiftly replaced by industrialized slabs of steel and concrete. Her geometric, architectural-based 2D and 3D works and animated films, seek to respond to the role of the built environment – much as the centuries-old art and architectural movement of Constructivism once did. In fact, the artist finds many parallels between the technological progress that occurred after World War I, and our current detachment from the environment and motivation towards technological advancement.

Eclectic, artsy, earthy, urban and committed to a better future... that's Sustainable Ballard and the 16th Annual Sustainable Ballard Festival. Join this group of Ballard neighbors on Sept 28th at Ballard Commons Park for creativity, passion and community-building while learning about daily practices and big steps toward more sustainable living. This year's theme of "Green Steps", focuses on actions big and small that neighbors can take to reduce their carbon footprint. The Sustainable Ballard festival is your treasure map to responsible local businesses, sustainability education and just plain fun. Press apple cider, peek under the hood of an electric car, test ride an electric bike, learn about solar for your home, explore several options for organic food delivery, buy a raffle ticket! For the kids: visit the Illumination Learning Studio Booth and make a necklace or decorative hanging using recycled marker and bottle caps; or make newspaper and construction-paper cats. Stop by a food vendor and sample healthy local food, visit the street stage to enjoy live music, or visit Festival sponsor Built Green's booth and build a recycled birdhouse. As always, the fest is FREE to the public and perfect for families! With a membership of nearly 2000, Sustainable Ballard demonstrates that energy independence and self-reliance does not mean "going it alone." Attendees are participants and co-creators of the festival experience, and everyone in the community is welcome. While the mood is festive, the message is a serious one - to discover new possibilities and a deepened commitment to living more lightly on the Earth. The choices we make daily can affect global climate change. Ballard neighbors and friends are invited to connect with each other by volunteering at the festival. When we engage, we become part of creating the thriving community and lifestyle we want and need. Contact volunteer@sustainableballard.org for details on how you might help with this community event!
