Clockwork Coterie

Red Raven Gallery is proud to present


We are so happy to welcome Braden back to the Red Raven Gallery for April.

Braden Duncan is a portrait artist by trade, imperfect by choice, and a cog in the machine of human mythology by default. She draws her inspiration from the peculiar minutiae of the human form, symbolism and mythology, the empty spaces left by missing friends, and the intricate elegance created by the convergence of biological and mechanical elements.

She is the co-founder of the Seattle Arts Coalition and a resident artist at Echo Echo Gallery in Seattle. She is the art director at Trabant Coffee & Chai, Laika Lounge, and The Georgetown Liquor Co, and she regularly assists with curating, art installation, and digital design for other art spaces around the Northwest. A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, she resides in Seattle, WA with her chosen family and the animals of the Mongrel Circus.

No more Tears, Only Dreams now... June Show at The Red Raven

No More Tears, only dreams now....


The Red Raven Gallery is bringing out all the stops for June artwalk!  The Show, titled, "No more tears, Only dreams now...." Features Three Uber-talented figurative artists from different corners of the world with all new work done especially for us!

Inachis by Jel Ena
graphite and prisamcolor on Moleskine


Returning a year later, for her second show with the Red Raven Gallery we welcome Jel Ena from Los Angeles. Her show with us last year, Medusa in Furs, was very well received and she brings it again with new  mixed media works on paper and wood. Jels' style is at once in your face powerful and vulnerable... her subjects are the stuff of dreams in saturated color and fine swirling, graceful lines.

Not a feather, Then he fluttered
by Alice Savage
ink on paper


Our second artist in her first feature at the Red Raven is Alice Savage from Italy.  Alice is a well known international artist working primarily in pen and ink.  Her work is highly detailed and striking, concentrating on the face and intertwining the elements of nature in both flora and fauna.

Howl
by Laurie McClave
oil on wood


Finally our featured local artist is gallery manager Laurie McClave.  Laurie is working in oils on wood for the show and will be debuting her latest pieces at artwalk, Saturday night June 1st. Her new works portray a bit of  her life here in the PNW and touch on the fact that her husband works at sea much of the year, a common theme here in Port Townsend. The color of the sky, the water and the nautical elements of life on our little peninsula are interspersed with Lauries' female characters in her signature style.

RED RAVEN is MOVING UNDERTOWN!

Help Red Raven Gallery Co-op Move to their new space UNDERTOWN!!!!!


The Red Raven Gallery must move in July, and we need your help.  We are re-locating to the Undertown spaces of Port Townsend which will be a very cool move indeed.  We are a not for profit co-op so we do not have the funds to pay for the needed lighting, new shelving and the various items that go along with opening up a new gallery.....The coolest thing is we will now have room for an artists space to work in house... but we will need to build a little corner for that.. so, we are asking our loyal art loving customers to donate small amounts to help us achieve our goal of creating a welcoming artist gallery environment that is in keeping with our affordable accessible artwork from amazing artists both locally and worldwide! There are rewards at every level of donating.. cause we love to give back and pay it forward! Thank you in advance for any help you can give, sharing is also an excellent way to help us, so share this and our link to our Go Fund Me page

Dreamscape: Stories from Earth and Beyond


Red Raven Gallery presents.....

Dreamscape: Stories from Earth and Beyond for May Artwalk
 
Calypso, guardian of the sea

Kim Gordon
Full of symbolism, heroines, goddesses and talismans, Kim Gordon's "Dreamscape: Stories from Earth and Beyond" explores the age-old tradition of storytelling with special attention to legend and myth, both modern and ancient.

Kim Gordon is an artist living and working in San Francisco, California. Her art reflects and incorporates her interest in magic, travel, myths, historical events and family heritage. She prefers to paint on wood as the grain, and other natural elements of the material, contribute their own story to the final piece.
Specializing in the honored tradition of painting women, her figures are used as vehicles to represent a wide variety of issues. A soft strength balanced with quiet reflection is found in the faces of her subjects. The worlds she creates echo the present day, historical fact and mythological folklore.

Kim Gordon's art is exhibited, featured and collected nationally and internationally. Gordon's recent exhibitions include the annual Laluzapalooza show,
hosted by La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. Her first show (acting as curator), titled, "Hope Beyond" brought together a talented roster of artists to successfully raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy (www.hope-beyond.com). Additionally, Gordon also generously donates her works to charitable causes, including the Sea No Evil Art Show and the Great West Coast Migration. Gordon’s work has been published in many publications, including Catapult Magazine, Clutter Magazine, Complex Magazine, Wired Magazine and Hi-Fructose magazine.


Jacqueline Chisick Local Painter

Nuns in the field 

JACQUELINE CHISICK has emerged as an important artist of the Northwest. Her rich, luscious colors are always recognizable., and her forms seem full of the very life around her. Born in Arizona, she was raised in the hill country of cowboys and copper miners, with her family later moving to the desert; the muted colors of Arizona figured prominently in her earlier works. She received her Master’s degree from Arizona State University, and apprenticed under several European-trained artists. After teaching university and college art classes for twenty years, she packed her paints, her cat and her levis into her 1977 Porsche and moved to Port Townsend, Washington.


 The human figure has always been important in her paintings, but since moving to Port Townsend her colors have become more intense and rich, with mysterious, deep crimsons and violets contrasting with the light of gold and vermilion.

Please Join us Saturday May 4th for Artwalk night at Red Raven Gallery.. 922 Water st. in Port Townsend from  5:30-8:30
