Bird in flight--Bly

Two female artists focus of September show at Burien Arts Gallery

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

Two exciting female artists—Kris Vermeer and Kim Bly– will be featured in September at the Burien Arts Gallery.

Meet Kris and Kim at the grand opening reception, Thursday, Sept. 4, 4-9 p.m. The gallery is located at 826 S.W. 152nd St. in Olde Burien.

Kris Vermeer is an internationally known artist whose work has been collected by famed British natural-history filmmaker David Attenborough and several Nobel Prize winners. Her work can be found at AT&T’s main office in Phoenix and in permanent display at the Las Vegas airport.

A self-taught artist, who has been selling professionally since 1985, Kris works in a variety of mediums, including fused glass, steel and stainless sculptures and acrylic painting.

Kim Bly was born and raised in Washington state. She received a bachelor’s degree from Central Washington University, majoring in both photography and painting. Following graduation, she was an active participant in Seattle’s independent art culture.

Kim relocated to San Diego in 2002 where she started her own business as a wedding, portrait and event photographer.

She is back in Seattle to pursue her art and raise her family.

Her oil on canvas paintings are expressive, bold and most often layered, conveying a sense of growth within each painting. Much of the lines and shapes within her paintings flow together and grow out of one another, simultaneously showing unity and evolution, which bring to mind cause-and-effect relationships.

Kim comments, “So many of my paintings have so much connected imagery and lines that the viewer can continue to see new shapes and images every time you look at a piece. The viewer often even sees things in a way that I did not initially intend. I love that about my work—how it continually evolves even after it’s hanging on a wall.”

Works from Artists United will also be featured.

About the Artist:

“Looking for unique, handmade art? This is the place! I create realistic collages in a variety of themes, no oddball or dark images. 

My tools of the trade are sharp scissors, glue stick, and old magazines. Some pieces also have acrylic paint in the background. The finished pieces are coated with gloss medium for better adhesion and color preservation.

Come see!”

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.

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.”
