Sunday/ Seattle Art Fair

I went to the Seattle Art Fair here in the city today.  Check it out .. here are some of my favorites.  (Pictures taken with my phone.  I was a little surprised that they allowed us to take pictures.   Even so, I tried not to go overboard with taking pictures).

Inside the Art Fair. The Fair featured galleries and exhibitors from cities across the USA, as well as from Tokyo, Vancouver and Paris. It’s only its second year, and I overheard an exhibitor say this year’s exhibit was quite a bit bigger than the first one had been.

This looks a little like a reinterpretation of ‘The Landing of the Pilgrims’, by Henry A. Bacon, 1877. It is called ‘In Empathy We Trust’ and is a combined effort of Elizabeth Kleinveld and Epaul Julien, both from New Orleans.

This is actually a coffee table with mirrors and lighting that creates the illusion of endless depth when you peer into it from the top. (I did not take note of the artist).

More art from Tokyo, this one by artist Shintaro Miyake, and titled ‘Court of Great King Enma’ (2014). The characters are inspired by Buddhism.

This is a Dale Chihuly lamp (Chihuly is a glass sculptor from Tacoma). Interesting, but a little too wild from my old house, I am afraid.

Can you guess the artist? Andy Warhol, of course. It is from 1983, and called ‘Eagle’.

Wow. Three dimensional art by Christopher David White. A little creepy, no? Not something to bump into on one’s way to the kitchen for a midnight snack!

These are called Las Amazonas (2008) by Walter Robinson. The non-smiles on the smiley faces are upside down smiles from the Amazon logo. (Maybe the little faces represent ‘buyer’s remorse’?)

The entrance. The event was held in the Century Link conference center. There was a baseball game right next door at the Safeco Field stadium. Yes : I chose art over baseball. Hey, to each his own, right?

I really liked this black and white work of art with its child-like elements, but did not note the artist.
