Coming Up This December~ Femke Hiemstra

Here is a super sneak peek at a new piece by Femke Hiemstra who is busily painting for her new show this December at Roq La Rue, while also working on a book based on her "The Timid Cabbage" show held last year at the Roq. This new book will be a beautiful collectable published by Sympathy Press and we'll get the word out soon as we know of it's release (shooting for Christmas!)

Upcoming~ Stacey Rozich

We are thrilled to announce we just signed up one of the Northwest's meteorically rising art stars, Stacey Rozich, for a solo show next May.
Rozich is gaining huge recognition for her work, which blends global folk imagery and patterns to create narratives that both evoke an shamanistic world view combined with contemporary narratives. Rozich will be traveling to Croatia for three months and this show will be the end result of her residency and explorations. We are thrilled to host this show of new works which will undoubtedly take her to the next level.

Eric Fortune ~ Process

Eric Fortune has a beautiful new painting in the current Lush Life Four show- and Hi Fructose published a nice write up hi lighting the time consuming process Eric takes when he created the painting "Goddess of Antiquities".

A Studio Visit with Sam Wolfe Connolly

Hi Fructose just posted a nice little write up featuring Sam Wolfe Connelly, whose work is in the current Lush Life Four show, and who will be having a solo show at Roq La Rue next year.
