November 3rd from 5-9pm

Opening on First Thursday, “Narrative” brings together an all-female cast of artists in a show of largely allegorical, highly detailed, and emotionally resonant works.

Reilly Jensen invites the viewer to spend blissful hours at the junkyard with multitudes of ruined and discarded parts, artifacts of consumerism and desire for novelty. Inspired by objects that morph between the mechanical and organic, she blends reality with imagination in her paintings.

Bette Burgoyne works monochromatically, restraining herself to a black and white palette. Her newest series “Smoke Noir” features women’s hands holding pipes that billow a peculiar smoke, suggestive of shadowy notions.

Izzie Klingels is drawn to building ‘feminine’ attributes into her work, such as sparkle, shimmer, and delicacy. Using obsessive details and rich texture, she describes fragments of a larger narrative.

Artwork up until January 5th.



"A Quiet Truth"
Jessica Jorgensen Solo

AXIS Pioneer Square is pleased to present “A Quiet Truth”, a solo show by Jessica Jorgensen.

Working in a classical realist style, painter Jessica Jorgensen visually examines the narrative of moments typically seen as private, often set inside the home.

Rich in texture, her work reflects an overwhelming sense of solitude and intimacy. Jessica Jorgensen is a curious observer documenting visual absurdities and narratives repeated in day-to-day life. Her work explores the figure's ability to carry emotion and story through the body, as well as the underlying figurative nature of objects personified. The observations are sometimes simple, sometimes serious, spiritual, and even silly at times, but her work consistently incarnates those moments along with the emotional connections attached.

Please join us for this opening reception and solo exhibition on October 6th. Opening night will feature performances by Coriolis Dance and live music by Cody Jorgensen on piano.

Knick Knack Records, a 100% independently-owned label and record store specializing in vinyl will be vending during opening night.
