  • Lisa Hasegawa, intentional art.

    simplicity, focus, repetition - all apt words to describe Lisa Hasegawa's intentional art making. In her own words "...the process of art-making is as important as the finished piece itself." Holes are punched into sheets of paper that she has been collecting for years. Thread is sewn and the holes are burnished closed at the end of the sewing process. Truly a meditation in art.

    Click! welcomes Lisa Hasegawa to the West Seattle Artwalk Thursday February 13th from 6 to 9pm.

    Although we have retired our own line of concrete jewelry, we do have a soft spot for the material. It therefore makes us extremely happy to be hosting the launch of Karen Konzuk's Orbis collection.

    Combining steel, cast concrete orbs in incrementally varying greys, and forged spheres of bright gold, Karen has created an absolutely stunning collection of work.

  • Sarah Loertscher Metalpoint

    Have you ever seen Metalpoint drawing? It's an ancient and mesmerizing technique that our own Sarah Loertscher has been working with since her Core Fellowship days at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina.

     

    Sarah will be at Click! for Art Walk this Thursday. Stop by for a tour of these amazing drawings rendered with metal. Her jewelry case will certainly be well displayed for the occasion if you prefer to adorn yourself rather than your walls. And don't forget to ask her about her further adventures in the world of fashion. She has 2 runway shows under her belt after recently adorning Angel Sanchez's Fall collection during NY Fashion Week with her big, bold, geometrical jewelry creations.

    We'll have snax and bevs and of course you know that many of the Junction restaurants have great happy hour deals both before and after Art Walk -  so stick around!

  • Look what Shelli Markee is bringing to Click!

    You've likely seen her graceful wire birds sailing through the upper altitudes at Click! As our featured artist in January and February, she has turned her gaze homeward. Using her favorite medium, steel wire, she has created drawings of furniture...

    ...and constructed one of a kind wire lighting dubbed the Circus Collection. We just installed the show and it is well worth a trip out in the cold for the West Seattle Artwalk tomorrow. Shelli will be in attendance and we'll have snacks and sips to welcome you.
