Opening Reception:
Rachel Lee
Friday, August 12th from 6-10pm

"Climate change” calls to mind images of increasingly severe wildfires and droughts and stranded polar bears, but there are devastating changes taking place beneath the surface of the seas due to ocean acidification (sometimes referred to as “global warming’s evil twin” in the media), the mostly invisible and cataclysmic effects of which will reverberate through marine ecosystems as well as human communities worldwide.

In this debut show, Rachel Lee, an interdisciplinary artist with a keen interest in the sciences as well as contemporary drawing and painting, visually highlights recent findings about the many ocean species being impacted by the changing ocean chemistry, from familiar oysters and corals, to the fascinating and alien world of the microscopic zooplankton that line the foundation of ocean food webs.

Opening reception features live performance by The Black Chevys.

DJ: Erik Siegling
Closing Reception:

Leo Shallat Solo

Leo Shallat is a calligraphy artist born and raised in Seattle. He works as a painter, illustrator, and muralist. “Expansions” builds upon Shallat’s foundation of calligraphy and technical line-work by moving into three-dimensional imagery. Inspired by motion, this new body of work uses color, texture, and space to express the intangible flow of energy the artist regards as a constant in the world.
