Tons of different exhibits, shows and in-person events to be checked out. Here’s a sampling…

Fremont Abbey Arts Center (4272 Fremont Ave N) – “Contemplations on the Dialectical Utopian Vision”

Join us for a tremendous collage art show! We will have 7 artists presenting work which depicts an alternate take on our current reality. Some work is political satire, others are social commentary or just fascinating juxtapositions of media images. Singer songwriters Jon Pontrello and Mads Jacobsen will be performing during the 6-9pm art show, followed by a 9pm screening of the claymation-tastic independent film “A Jazzman’s Jazzman: The Gerry Carruthers Story”.

Gallery Notebleu (600 N. 36th Street, Floor 3) – Melanie Masson, Photography

“Doppelgänger” is a visual exploration of a well-known concept from German folklore: a double of oneself, as conveyed thru the lens of a Lomo 360 camera during travels to Masson’s ancestral homeland of France.

ArtFX Gallery (420 N. 35th St.) – Melanie Reed, Collages

Using fragments of found paper, these seamlessly crafted works serve as deeply personal reflections, employing vivid colors, energetic lines and visceral, evocative imagery to spontaneously capture and depict the varied terrain of a series of emotional landscapes.

Scott Cahill Rude’s photographic series “Reflecting On Seattle” carries an eye-catching thread of water and light reflection throughout.  These pieces capture a unique perspective of our northwest city as seen through the eyes of a native Seattlite returned home.

There’s a ton more artists and venues to see so make sure you check the entire list. Happy art appreciating!
