Featured Artist of the Month: Brandon Vosika, Mixed Media
On view will be Brandon’s unique light boxes, paintings, craftings & collage, all accompanied by the haunting melodies of his musical work – a land & soundscape into the past; memoryscapes perhaps of an old and fading world juxtaposed with a modern overlay. Ancient explores lost on tundra’s of ragboard and reclaimed wood; innocent rabbit children pose for an unseen cameraman under coffee stained skies; quizzical dogs await the sound of their master’s voice…all are present in Vosika’s miniatures.

Artist: Tyson Anthony Roberts, Paintings
Tyson Anthony Roberts is a painter based in Seattle, WA. He studied studio art at UC Davis and after college moved to Mexico City to continue developing his style away from home. Upon his return to Northern California, he voraciously worked to distinguish his brush-work and thus his style has culminated into what you see today. This past year Tyson exhibited his work twice in NYC and at numerous locations throughout Seattle.
Live music by Bar Tabac, and Skillet Street food truck will be serving deliciousness out of their iconic Airstream trailer in the parking lot. Wine for $5/glass (or 5/$20). This is a great place to start your evening and then work your way around to the other galleries!
