Artist Brett Polonsky showing at Keller Williams in August

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

This month, Keller Williams is featuring mixed media artist, Brett Polonsky. Don’t miss this local artist! Visit Brett during the beat on August 7th from 6-9pm at the Mark Restaurant, 918 SW 152nd St .

Artist Bio:

 I am an abstract mixed-media painter. My paintings are typically highly layered and textured creating subtle shades of what lies beneath. I look for interesting perfect moments in each piece and consider it a success if each viewer sees in them something unique.

I work with acrylics, paper, toilet paper, surgical gauze among other things. All work is on stretched canvas, wired for hanging, and signed on the back.

I work from my studio in Bellevue, WA.

Sara Mark’s Food Photography showing at Start Fresh Market

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Photographer Sara Mark will be showing at Start Fresh for August’s art walk. Make sure to stop by to gaze at these mouth-watering pictures and then satisfy that hunger with some delicious food from the deli!

Artist Statement:

“Iconic imagery is what I strive to produce. Whether it be food or drink, I love to bring creativity and uniqueness into all pieces of my work. Being raised by two parents who both attended culinary school it was no surprise I combined my love of food and art.  Seeking to evoke new feelings over food photography, I add a conceptual and colorful touch to the already delicious subject. With a simple concept and the desire to spike more than just an ‘mmm’ from the viewer I blend two worlds of food and conceptual photography in a vivid and exciting way.”
