opening reception: july 2, 5-8pm
Traver Gallery is pleased to present Heike Brachlow:
Color Through Form. This exhibition marks Brachlow's premier exhibition with the gallery.
German born artist Heike Brachlow is a provocateur, inviting viewers to touch and play with her massive, precarious-seeming works of kiln cast glass. Her remarkably seductive sculptures reflect her fascination with movement and transformation, both in color and form.
installation detail: THREE VIEWS: IN, OUT AND AT
Timed to coincide with Seattle's inaugural Seattle Art Fair, Traver Gallery is excited to announce a special exhibition by sculptor Mark Zirpel. "Three Views: In, Out and At" explores notions of perception and physical experience. Light, shadow, reflection and rotation provide the means in this spacious triptych.
Mark Zirpel's work is driven by ideas and context. It is physical in its materiality and conceptually insistent. It is sculptural, installation-based, kinetic, and often explores a convergence between art and science. Combining sculptural materials, including glass, steel, and mechanical components, with physical forces such gravity, magnetism, wind, and light, Zirpel investigates the mechanisms of the world and physical experience.
