MICHAEL NICOLL YAHGULANAAS:

SOLO EXHIBIT

        

         Detail of RED: A Haida Manga - Sheet 14

 

 

Opening Reception,

First Thursday, April 2nd, 6-8pm

Artist will be in attendance at opening for an exhibit tour at 6pm.

 

We are proud to present the first American gallery exhibit of contemporary Vancouver artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas (Haida tribe). His dynamic work has been seen in museums and galleries across Canada, Asia and Europe, but he makes his Seattle debut with Stonington Gallery and the Seattle Art Museum.

Yahgulanaas is known for his hyper-kinetic drawings that combine the bold lines of traditional Haida formline, and the narrative form of Japanese comics. He dubs the style "Haida Manga", an unexpected and successful genre pairing that he has explored in varied media.

He makes use of the buoyant and exaggerated caricatures seen in cartoons and comics, and uses the elegant lines of Northwest Coast design to both border the action and direct the flow. The result are narrative paintings that burst with motion, exuberance, humor and arresting characters, while tying together the graphic traditions of two disparate Pacific Rim island-dwelling cultures.

Yahgulanaas' crowning achievement in the style is RED (right), a huge narrative painting that will be shown at the Seattle Art Museum from February-May 2015.

Our exhibition will feature works on paper, limited edition prints, and works on metal. Of particular note are Yahgulanaas' two sculptural series Coppers From the Hood and Flappes, which are made from actual car parts.

New Works for Spring

 

Opening Reception: First Thursday May 7

In May we present an exhibit of works ranging from traditional sculpture to blown glass, works on paper to sumptuous jewelry, fresh for the spring season! The days are getting longer, and the sun is out--in Seattle, at least--so it's the perfect time to dust those cobwebs and spruce up your living space with new artwork that will make you happy, energized and inspired.

We are proud to present brand new works from artists such as Susan Point, carver Scott Jensen, glassblower Preston Singletary, jeweler Courtney Lipson, painter/carver Neeka Cook, and others.

June 3-28

Masters of Disguise:

 

On Masks and Faces

 

Opening Reception: First Thursday June 3

6-8pm

Exhibit Runs June 3 - 28

 

 

Each year Stonington Gallery presents one or two large themed group exhibits that showcase the astonishing variety of styles, skills, and imaginations of artists living between Northern California all the way up to the northernmost tip of Alaska.

This year, we are proud to present an exhibit that focuses on the myriad ways in which we represent the human face, in Masters of Disguise: On Masks & Faces.  Traditions of masking are found all up and down the Northwest Coast, from the subtle and realistic portrait masks of the Tlingit people, to the fantastic and famed transforming masks of the Kwakwaka'wakw. But masks are not all about tradition: we use the art of masking when we face the outside world, we show different faces to different people, and we find ourselves transforming throughout the course of our lives.

Join us as we explore the moods of masks in this exhibit of the very best contemporary artists on the Northwest Coast. Participating artists include Qwalsius Shaun Peterson (Puyallup), Greg Colfax (Makah), Phil Gray (Tsimshian), Susie Silook (Inupiaq/Siberian Yupik), Scott Jensen (Non-Indigenous), Larry Ahvakana (Inupiaq), Preston Singletary (Tlingit), Joe David (Nuu-chah-nulth), Trevor Hunt (Kwaguilth), Tom Patterson (Nuu-chah-nulth), Courtney Lipson (Non-Indigenous), Robert Barratt (Non-Indigenous), Drew Michael (Yupik), Art Thompson (Nuu-chah-nulth), and others.
