Joshua Thompson (@joshuathompsonstudio)
Joshua Thompson holds a BFA from UWF (2005) and an MFA from PAFA (2008) and has lived and worked in Seattle since 2013. He has worked across many mediums and processes throughout the years but continually comes back to oil painting as his primary focus. There are many things that filter into and out of his work, one common influence comes from natural and man-made structures both as objects and the processes by which they are formed. Building, growth, excavation, decomposition, destruction, symbiosis, temporality, birth, death, and rebirth are all frequent components that dictate process and metaphors within his work.
Josh R.M. (@joshrm)
Josh R.M. grew up on a small farm in Central Oregon. His earliest experiences with art included drawing in the wet sand that lined the ponds that irrigated the land. He became intrigued by the interrupted landscape, of inorganic shapes and lines cutting through the scene, like a fence running through a field or a stick dragging through the mud.
Josh studied at Eastern Oregon University where he was inspired by both landscape painting and early Modern Art movements like De Stijl. Known for limiting the use of color and painting in a particular set of angles. Josh currently lives in Seattle where he continues to depict themes from his past, explored through a

Hoa Hong (@hoaaahong)
“Painting is my way of recording my existence... What a time to be alive with good music, art and fashion.”
Hoa is a figurative oil painter. Her portraits emphasize the fine line between abstraction and realism. As a mixture of sharp and broken details suggests both clarity and ambiguity in the subject she paints, hoa believes you can never truly know someone completely; only what they allow you to see.
“Everything I paint is “my” reality. Nothing more, nothing less. Now it is up to you to interpret what you see as “your” reality”

Deane McGahan (@deanemcgahan)
Deane McGahan is a contemporary sculptor who is inspired by the desire to create unconventional forms that push the boundaries of the material employed. Altering what ordinarily is the solid uniformity of concrete into casts that seem pulled, stretched, in transit. To revise what is normally the process of casting the wet matrix of concrete into a solid block. To discover instead a form that looks like a sound wave instead of a static obelisk. A reverberation rather than an inert constant.
Her aim is to create work that inspires, connects and contributes. Work that bridges the abstraction of human emotion and solid objects. If there is a message in

Cady Bogart (@thequeencity)
Cady Bogart is a Painter and Muralist living in Seattle, Washington who specializes in acrylic painting.
"Painting for me is a thinking process, a way to engage in a kind of internal discourse. In my work, I deconstruct the American dream, fairy tales, and cartoons that are part of our childhood and adult culture. I am inspired by tattoos, street art, and the crisp line work of iconic mid-century cartoons. I continually strive for my paintings to show the celebration of life and what it means to be human. "
Bridget Sexauer (@lazaretta)

Her dream is to one day form an artist residency program on an old navy ship where artists from all trades can come together, share ideas, and travel the world. Until then, she is excited to continue painting the many robot-like faces she encounters on the job.

Blake Blanco (@blakeblanco)
"My goal with painting is to connect with the viewer and maintain a state of constant discovery. I do this by incorporating subjects that oppose each other rather than flow together and I search for ways to connect them."
"Adorn The Day" is a series of paintings placing figurative sculptures in a position where they become the viewer and are provided a chance to admire the brilliance of nature. Blakes interest within this series is focused around the longevity and impermanence of the paired subjects. In one hand you have a state of beauty captured in stone that is everlasting and relished by all of mankind. In the other a product of nature that is ephemeral
Blade Palace (@bladepalace)
Blade Palace is a psychedelic garage rock band birthed in the dark, damp womb of a Seattle basement. Made up of members Rob Nightingale (vocals, guitar), Elliot Preston (vocals, guitar, synth), Kurt Roy (bass), and Nate Louis (drums); the band bathes you in eerily tranquil psychedelic waters, then tosses in a toaster; shocking you with 1,000 volts of pure electricity. Fuzzy guitars in a cacophonous chaos course through your veins while driving drumbeats and thumping bass slither around your brain and squeeze. Described by one fan as "being shocked to death by electric eels while tripping on acid," the band's frenetic live show is slowly submerging the Pacifi

Veta Bakhtina (@vetabakhtina)

The project explores interplay between decoration and low brow realism influenced by traditional Slavic Palekh and Khohloma styles. In this work the artist explores h
