Preview Art Magazine PNW Summer 2018 - By Matthew Kangas
NAOKO MORISAWA - Frederick Holmes and Company, Seattle, Jul 5 – Aug 5
Morisawa, born in Tokyo, lives in Seattle but has exhibited widely in Japan and the US, as well as at the recent Phnom Penh Art-Design Triennial in Cambodia. Her colorful woven-wood “mosaics” have attracted attention for their meticulous craftsmanship and intricate compositions, landing her public art commissions; her work is in private collections in Washington State, Oregon, Connecticut, Ireland and Japan.

Juror Michael Monroe had his work cut out for him as he juried this year’s Arts at the Port Juried Show- Anacortes Art Festival. With 220 applicants, and nearly 1100 pieces submitted, he ended up with an exhibition that includes 70 regional artists and 117 pieces of work. This show is diverse, with a strong representation of both 2D and 3D work including painting, fiber, wood, sculpture and glass and mixed media work. Michael will return to select the Award winners on Saturday, July 28, prior to Opening of the Show that evening.

We will suspend a kind of free stuffs and save our time. Free SNS bring lots of fake information. Its wasting time in limited life. They mostly tend to sell your information. There may be no free lunch also in the internet world.
Let it do some official source, newspaper, media, public officials, local cities, company, or interest party to create news and promotion for art and artists, which is back to traditional style and trustworth.

In science, a center of gravity is a point or place where an object can be balanced. The City of Shoreline’s first exhibition devoted to the creation of a permanent collection strives to create a balance of media and artistic backgrounds in keeping with a 21st century city with rapidly changing demographics. The exhibition opens Saturday, June 9, from 5:00 pm -7:30pm, at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline, 98133; on the third and fourth floors with artists in attendance. Regular gallery hours will be 9:00-5:00 M-F and by appointment on weekends until September 17, 2018, when unsold work will be returned. The City plans to spend up to $10,000 on the artwork to begin its permanent indoor collection, complementing its 26 permanent outdoor sculptures, and will announce its selections in July.
From over 105 artist submissions and more than 500 artworks, jurors David Francis and Jason Huff (Seattle Arts and Culture) selected a final group of 30 (45 artworks) that each explore contemporary art as a balancing of objectives and a blending of disciplinary focus. Many of the artists have backgrounds in other fields and experiences in other countries, reflecting a global village of contemporary art. As Huff writes in his juror’s statement, “Given the city's commitment to equity and inclusion, it was important to make sure that the artists whose works are part of this selection reflected diversity of people and communities that make up Shoreline.” Themes vary from nature, to history, identity, and the design of spatial representation.

Glad to know that my work is among of the selection, thank you. This year's Juror Michael Monroe, Bellvue Art Museum Director Emeritus, have completed multiple rounds, ending with 70 selected artists out of 222 applicants.
Following are thoughts from Michael’s jury statement:
“I was impressed with both the quantity and the quality of the entries. While competitions, by their very nature, can’t be complete surveys of all the emerging and professional artists in the region, this exhibition plays a vital role in giving artists a high quality venue, especially in this era of ever shrinking opportunities for showing works of excellence. My personal criteria for making informed decisions can be summed up in the following thoughts. The strongest objects pursue an original idea while interpreting older traditions and/or techniques in a fresh way. The strongest artists recognize their material’s appropriateness for use in the object's creation while simultaneously provide evidence of their masterful handling of those materials and techniques, not as ends in themselves, but rather in the service of their unique vision.
In addition, I embrace those works that embody strong and vital connections between the maker’s concept and the final expression of his or her idea. Finally, my most important criteria is that a work of art carries a sense of feeling and caring on the part of the maker. The objects in this exhibition announce themselves as objects of personal expression; they resound with the artist’s confidence, verve, imagination and inventiveness.”

While flying recently on Alaska air recently, I found the article about the Seattle Pioneer Square section. Great to know about our gallery being on the picture, but the editor did not include not all information about the galleries in these area. But we found our gallery name is not on the magazine. A bit frustrated, is this matter of money business such advertisement fee? Only who paid the fee is able to be shown on the magazine? Please inform the details who paid or not paid or how you arrange the content, was the fee your magazine requested expensive?. Anyway if I am in this shoe in this buisness involved at this area, I should be printed on this magazine in the spot for sure, even they are being charged, I do happily involved in. So many people will find the information about this nice area with interests about Pioneer Square Seattle. Please visit the Occidental Square in case you come Seattle, and you will be fine.
Hi, Margo, I plan to have two person show, a kind of Solo Show here at Fredercik Gallery in Pioneer Square in July 2018. Please visit to come to my gallery and report the show for upcoming Alaska Magazine 2018 issue. Thank you for your kind note and prompt arrangement. LA and New York Times and London Conttemporary Art review editors are wellcome to visit and review the upcoming exhibition. Best Regards,

It is time to wonder Facebook. There are not much value among fake-news surrounded; not connected it for a while and it is no problem. It is not productive either. Maybe it is about high time to suspend it. Back to work.
