We had a marvelous time at the Urban life exhibition last week at the Gallery.
On Thursday, September 14th, Gallery B612 hosted the Artist Reception celebrating 11 selected artists and 2 performing artists.
With the Urban Life Exhibition, we wanted to share in each artists personal take and representations if what Urban Life is. The selected artists for the Urban Life Art Exhibition are: Jay Alexander, Laurie, Ragan Anderson, Brian Brenno, Steve Jensen, T. Lilja, Monir Malekpour, Tom McIntire, Morgen Sellier, Marcus Shriver, Hong Zhao, and Elliot Grace Harvey.
Brian Brenno's work preserves forgot icons of local Seattle businesses, such as the Dick's Hamburgers sign.
We proudly showcased two performing artists: Che Sehyun and Michele Wylen. Starting off, Michele shared deeply personal pop R&B indie style beats we were all grateful to hear. Filipina-American songstress (singer and songwriter), Michele Wylen has been known for her upbeat, positive, confident music, which has been featured in TV shows like The Kardashians and Selling Sunset.
Now, she is working on an album that shows a more vulnerable side called, Eternal Dream, which is set for release in Spring of 2024. It is all about her healing journey.
We enjoyed an intimate set with Michele as she shared some new material in progress that night.
Che delivered deep cultural story telling and a heartfelt original song about his grandmother that touched the hearts of the audience that evening.
Che Sehyun is known as The Future Ancient cultural worker in light (pertaining to video, photo & design) and vibrations (music, spoken word & storytelling).
Through his work, he focuses to center our cultural futures and collective liberation towards an indigenous future. The Urban Life Exhibition is open now through October 26th, 2023. See our business hours to stop by and visit these local art works. Thank you for supporting local art.
