ART BACKGROUND: Bachelor of fine arts in graphic design from University of Georgia FAVORITE MEDIUM TO USE: Right now I’m having a lot of fun with the Apple Pencil and my iPad. FAVORITE MEDIUM TO VIEW: I studied art history in college and fell in love with sculpture. I tried my hand at it, but I wasn’t very good at all. So I have a lot of respect for the medium and enjoy seeing sculptures in person, especially when I travel to places like Italy and Spain. FAVORITE ARTIST: Sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini GO-TO PLACE FOR INSPIRATION: I get inspiration from everything—the natural landscape, billboards, TV—any form of visual communication. BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION ABOUT ARTISTS: That they’re all starving. You can make a good living as a creative. ADVICE FOR ASPIRING ARTISTS: Don’t be afraid of constructive criticism. ADVICE FOR FAMILIES: Think of the arts as something active, not just something that’s hung in stuffy museums. Allow your kids to get dirty and have fun while they create.

Eastside news from our partners at 425 Business magazine. BELLEVUE’S GIX FACTOR

Few Eastside areas appear to be as poised to become the next major urban hub quite like Bellevue’s Spring District. The 36-acre, $2.3 billion Bel-Red Corridor project is the site of proposed office towers, apartment buildings, retail shops, a brew pub, and parks. REI will relocate there from Kent in 2020, and the district will be served by a light rail station by 2023. In the end, more than 2,000 residents and 13,000 employees are expected to populate the neighborhood in 10 years. You also can add college students to the Spring District’s neighborhood mix, thanks to the Global Innovation Exchange (GIX), a partnership between the University of Washington and Tsinghua University in Beijing that will create a graduate school focused on technology and innovation. GIX is backed by a $40 million investment from Microsoft and will open in a threestory, 86,000-square-foot building in September, when the inaugural class of students will begin a 15-month program on its way toward earning a Master of Science in Technology Innovation degree.

LOCAL BRANDED MERCHANDISE FIRM EXPANDS EAST COAST OPERATIONS

If you’ve ever gotten a prize from your Kellogg’s cereal box, received a bobble head doll from a baseball game, or a battery charger from a business colleague, you’ve likely been exposed to merchandise agency Bensussen Deutsch & Associates, or BDA for short. Recently, the Woodinville-based branded merchandise company announced it had acquired SwervePoint, a Boston-based promotional merchandise firm, in order to expand its operations in the Boston market while strengthening its industry foothold on the East Coast.

Recent round of funding propels Bothell company’s presence in global drinking water marketplace.

HaloSource, a Bothell-based provider of clean water technology, announced it has secured $2.2 million in a recent round of funding as well as signed a distribution deal that will help the company accelerate its presence in the global drinking water filtration market. “Since our founding, we’ve been building an extensive technology portfolio of ways to treat water, powering some of the world’s foremost brands in household drinking water devices on an OEM basis,” said CEO James Thompson.

MINDFUL DR I V IN G Bellevue Club member Dirk Nevelle has a thing or 50 to say about the problems that contribute to road rage and dangerous driving, and he recently wrote a book all about what is disturbing his peace.

D

irk Nevelle had been thinking about writing a book addressing driver etiquette for over 20 years. So when he finally put pen to paper, it wasn’t hard for him to list more than 100 infractions he sees drivers make regularly that can contribute to road rage. In his illustrated book Road Rage Justified, Nevelle distilled his list down to 50 rules (some are laws, some just pet peeves) he wishes everyone would remember and follow— for safety and everyone’s sanity. Now he’s on a mission to educate others by depicting different drivers violating what he sees as vital rules of the road. He cites the “Left-lane Camper,” the “Anti Zipper Merger,” and the “Social Media Addict” for displaying some of the most common examples of inappropriate behavior. Short descriptions of the infractions being committed by the characters make up the meat of the text and are meant to primarily inform readers in a comical and lighthearted way.

34 | september 2017 reflections


COMMUNITY bellevue club september 2017 | 35


BC MEMBER DIRK NEVELLE

While he agrees some of the misconduct is cause by carelessness, his ultimate goal is for driver education programs, concerned parents and possibly insurance companies to use his book to help bring attention to the problem and more peace to the road.

“Despite the title, it’s actually not a book about rage. It’s a book on social etiquette. I think if these 50 things were followed, there would be some huge benefits. People’s lives are at risk,” Nevelle says.

We all experience drivers who threaten our cool. The result is typically some form of frustration or Road Rage – the leading cause of driving accidents. Cluelessness is part of the problem. Others, the kings of the motoring narcissists, could care less at the fury left in their wake. Chances are you’ll recognize some of these driving irritations and may even smile as you realize you are an offender. Hopefully Road Rage Justified will make commutes a bit less frustrating. It’s a modest investment, and we all know a few individuals who could use the education! If you want to make the roads safer, buy the book for anyone you know who drives. Perhaps send a copy anonymously. Here’s to calmer times behind the wheel!

Nevelle has talked to nearly 70 radio and TV stations about the book and says part of what interests him is that road rage and driver etiquette are universal topics.

ROAD RAGE JUSTIFIED 50 Rules Every Driver Should Follow

“I’m very interested in the psychology of it all,” says Nevelle. “It’s such an interesting dynamic when we’re on the road, and you don’t see it play out in any other area of life. A little more awareness would go a long way.” For more information or to order the book, please visit roadragejustified.com.

“Driving is something everyone can relate to and talk about. If people talk about their pet peeves, it creates a debate, and that’s where progress starts,” he says.

ROAD RAGE JUSTIFIED

For Nevelle, who published under the pen name “Neve Roark,” the safety concerns and feelings of being threatened bother him the most. “I’m not a road rager. I’m a pretty chill guy, but I can relate to the anger because it’s a matter of life or death.”

Recent renovations, Rauschenberg and other reasons to visit the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

T

he City by the Bay has both world-class art museums and an endless array of galleries with emerging artists whose names are worth learning. When the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) reopened last year, it was with 10 extra stories, nearly triple the gallery space and free admission on the ground-floor level. Now the first museum on the West Coast dedicated to modern and contemporary art is also one of the world’s biggest. Here are a few reasons to make a trip to see it. ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN Comprising works of modern and contemporary architecture, furniture, product and graphic design, SFMOMA’s architecture and design collection is widely considered one of the most significant in the United States. The collecting and programming strategy focuses on identifying and contextualizing transformative or game-changing design, especially softwareintegrated design and works that have changed the course of a discipline or introduced new social, economic or environmental relationships. MEDIA ARTS The media arts collection encompasses a diverse range of time-based media artworks, including video, film, slide, sound, computer-based and online projects as well as live performances. Reflecting the Bay Area’s tradition of technological innovation and forward thinking, SFMOMA is a leader in the presentation, collection and preservation of time-based media works. Dedicated galleries for media arts, located on the 7th floor, accommodate collection-based presentations and new special exhibitions. PAINTING AND SCULPTURE As a cornerstone of SFMOMA’s identity since it opened its doors in 1935, the Department of Painting and Sculpture consistently engages with the art and artists of our time. Whether by supporting artists at early stages of their careers or by organizing major retrospectives and thematic exhibitions, the department is committed to fostering new ideas and approaches to modern and contemporary art. The collection includes paintings, sculptures and works on paper created from 1900 to the present day.

PHOTOGRAPHY One of the first institutions to recognize photography as an art form, SFMOMA holds more than 17,000 works of photography dating from the advent of the medium in 1839 to today’s digital images. The new Pritzker Center for Photography, made possible by the Lisa and John Pritzker Family Fund, offers 15,000 square feet of gallery, study and interpretive space—the largest space in any U.S. art museum permanently dedicated to photography.

THE MAIN ATTRACTIONS: WALKER EVANS On view September 30, 2017–February 4, 2018 A major photographer of the 20th century, Walker Evans’s iconic images of the Depression, his photo essays published during the 1940s and 50s and his definition of the “documentary style” influenced generations of photographers and other artists. Organized by the Musée National d’Art Moderne of the Centre Pompidou in Paris and conceived as a complete retrospective of Evans’s work, this exhibition examines the photographer’s fascination with vernacular culture. Through 300 prints assembled from major international collections, many of which have never before been exhibited, the exhibition presents a wide range of Evans’s photographs and his many sources of inspiration. Walker Evans includes documentation of the major subjects that Evans photographed during his career, as well as nearly 100 documents and objects, including many from the photographer’s personal collection of postcards, enameled plates, cut images and graphic ephemera. SFMOMA will be the only U.S. venue for this exhibition.

ROBERT RAUSCHENBERG: ERASING THE RULES On view November 18, 2017–March 25, 2018 From the 1940s until his passing in 2008, Rauschenberg worked with everything from photography to items scavenged from New York City streets to vats of bubbling mud. More than 150 of Rauschenberg’s artworks, including prints, sculptures, paintings and Combines (works that incorporate painting and sculpture), will be on view in the retrospective Robert Rauschenberg: Erasing the Rules, celebrating the artist’s continual experimentation with materials and collaborative working processes. The exhibition demonstrates how, with razor-sharp humor and intelligence, Rauschenberg broke down boundaries between disciplines, anticipated many of the defining cultural and social issues of our time and redefined what art could be for the generations of artists who followed. 2.

With the philosophy that quality skin care should be simple and easily accessible, member Michelle Hillis created her own line of products to help people put their best face forward.

ichelle Hillis knew she wanted to work in natural medicine after researching the side effects of prescription drugs while working at the University of Washington. After subsequently attending medical school and becoming a general practitioner, she knew she wanted to hone in on the skin when patient after patient showed up in her office with complaints of eczema, acne, psoriasis and other skin irritations. “It really made an impact on me because I saw how it affected their daily life. A lot of times patients felt held back and didn’t want to do everyday things because they didn’t feel comfortable in their own skin,” Hillis says. “Furthermore, I found a lot of patients’ skin conditions were being exacerbated by certain skin products, everyday products—lotions, makeup, soaps.

Really, I saw it on a very regular basis.” hat’s when she closed her practice to focus on easing people’s skin troubles full-time. But she didn’t want to do so in a clinical setting. “I decided it should be something helpful for daily life, something people use every day and something people could easily access—that was really important to me.” So about three years ago Hillis began making organic soaps and room sprays in her kitchen, and now her company, Tate Naturals, has grown by leaps and bounds. Recently, her soap was featured in Mantra magazine as one of their “best natural skincare products.” And she has been asked to attend national events regarding natural health, including a fund-raiser for thyroid cancer with Jill Zarin of The Real Housewives of New York City in July. Her soaps and room sprays—free of sulfates, parabens, dyes and synthetic fragrances—have also appeared in self-care subscription boxes and are available in various boutiques and stores around the Pacific Northwest. Hillis is currently in discussion with a few large national chain stores, which she hopes will help take the accessibility of products to the next level. But outside of sales or commercial success, she says the real pride comes when she hears stories of her products relieving people of their skin issues. “The most rewarding thing has been having people tell me they feel better, their skin feels better. Several people who use the soap say they’ve seen their children’s eczema or acne improve,” Hillis says. bellevue club september 2017 | 45


"I decided it should be something helpful for daily life." She credits the effectiveness of the soap to the ingredients, which are simple and thought to restore a natural balance to the skin. “Instead of stripping oil from the skin with chemicals, we’ve combined natural plant oils and essential oils. Our combinations do three things—cleanse the skin, nourish the skin and soothe it. The products are gentle, but your skin will feel nourished instead of being tight and itchy from other products,” Hillis says. For more information, please visit tatenaturals.com.

alitha Eustice knows a thing or two about building a happy and healthy body. Certified in massage therapy, corrective exercise and yoga, she offers a plethora of options to her students, including a unique kind of meditation-focused experience now offered weekly at the Bellevue Club. The two-part class begins with a hatha (yoga of the body) flow and is followed by half an hour of pranayama (breath work) meditation. The classes can be taken separately or together. While both sides to the practice focus on calming the mind and gaining awareness of the body, Eustice says by including a classical meditation portion of the class people can make sure they are taking the time to hone their breath work. “There are so many people who breathe very shallow, which is how you breathe when you’re stressed,” she says. “Focusing on the breath is such a good calming technique—just taking good, deep, full

breaths for any amount of time. I also feel like the nice thing about breath work is it can appeal to everyone—all different populations. Everyone needs to breathe.” Eustice was certified at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, a non-profit school in Massachusetts where she lived and trained in many disciplines from 2006 to 2010, and she brings many of the teachings she learned there to her classes. “The goal of this style of yoga is to cultivate witness consciousness, the ability to engage with the experiences of life both on and off the mat with more equanimity and without judgment,” she says. “We focus on practicing the poses with mindfulness, exploring our edges, and allowing ourselves to soften into the experience without judgment.” To train with Talitha, please email fitness@bellevueclub.com.

MEDITATION MADE SIMPLE Talitha shares two of her favorite meditation exercises that can be done anywhere.

THREE-PART BREATH

1. Sit in a seated meditation posture with your legs crossed and eyes shut. Place your hands on your lower belly. Take a deep breath in, focusing on your belly softening into your hands. Breathe out, releasing all the air in your lungs and pulling the navel in toward the spine. 2. Move your hands up to your lower ribs. Take a deep breath in, focusing on flaring the space between your lower ribs. Breathe out slowly, releasing all the air in your lungs and pulling the navel in toward the spine. 3. Finally, move your hands to the outside of your upper ribs. Take another deep breath, filling the lungs to maximum capacity while floating the upper ribs. Breathe out slowly, releasing all the air in your lungs and pulling the navel in toward the spine. ALTERNATE NOSTRIL BREATHING

1. Start in a seated meditated position. Using either hand, place your forefinger and middle finger on your forehead. Release all the air in your lungs. Use your thumb to close off the nostril that’s closest to it and slowly inhale through the open nostril. Once filled with breath, hold to the count of four to 10. Then use your ring finger to close off the nostril you used to inhale and then release the air through the other nostril. Repeat on the opposite side. Perform for three or four times.

nown for his advancements in the field of aquatic rehabilitation, work in non-operative rehabilitation and the creation of the not-for-profit organization Community Based Rehabilitation International, Andrew Cole is not only a fascinating doctor; he happens to be my dad. We sat down for a conversation about his career. Reflections magazine: When did you realize you wanted to work in non-operative medicine rather than perform surgery? Andrew Cole: I think sometime during my third year of medical school, during my clinical training. Because of my own spine injuries that were successfully rehabilitated non-surgically, I felt I wanted to offer people better options to help them avoid surgery if possible. Of course, if the patient needed a surgeon immediately or if they did not respond to nonsurgical care satisfactorily, I guided them to a surgeon who best met their needs.

RM: What exactly is aquatic rehabilitation? AC: Aquatic rehabilitation is the practice of using water to help facilitate recovery from various types of injuries, illnesses and long-term medical problems. This type of rehabilitation can help back pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, elbow pain, joint replacements, spinal cord injuries, stroke, amputations, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and more. Water has properties that facilitate a more rapid progress from musculoskeletal injuries as well as many other types of medical problems. The buoyancy alone helps reduce pain, and the water acts as resistance to movement so you can work harder or slower against it. It also helps improve range of motion. Interestingly, aquatic rehabilitation can also help other problems like certain types of heart and lung problems, because it facilitates exercise in a safe environment based on the physiology of how the water affects blood flow and blood pressure and swelling in the limbs.

THOUGHTS ON AQUATIC REHABILITATION • Bellevue Club member Dr. Andrew Cole, a board-certified physician in physical medicine and rehabilitation, discusses his role in helping advance the use of aquatic rehabilitation.

bellevue club september 2017 | 53


RM: What does a typical aquatic rehabilitation program look like? AC: Like any prescription, the most important thing is to customize for each person’s own medical problem and rehabilitation needs. You have to specify the type of exercise. Specify how often it’s supposed to be used and the dose, or how intense the episode of exercise should be. Depending on the problem you’re trying to help rehabilitate, the prescription for aquatic rehab is almost infinitely variable. RM: What would you say is the biggest accomplishment in your career to date? AC: I think that’s a multi-part answer. First, having the opportunity to treat so many people and have them share their most personal concerns with me. Helping people improve and guiding their care are by far the most gratifying clinical things I’ve done. Administratively, creating a team with the goal of developing programs for non-surgical care of musculoskeletal injuries and pain has been extraordinarily gratifying for me. I think the third thing is the opportunity to mentor and teach. Mentoring one-on-one with younger physicians, helping them learn clinically and academically how to advance care for their patients in both small and large health-care systems. I really enjoy helping people achieve their maximum potential. I’ve always felt that having someone succeed is the greatest reflection of me.

“I wanted to understand more about the mechanics of swimming and water exercise. ” RM: You have written a number of books about aquatic rehabilitation. What was your inspiration? AC: My interest in aquatic rehabilitation stemmed from when I hurt my own back. I went to see John Downey, MD, former chairman of the Department of Rehabilitation at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. He told me one of the best things I could do for my low back pain was swim. I started to realize his advice was extremely helpful, but there were certain movements that seemed to cause more pain. I then realized it wasn’t as simple as “go swim.” I wanted to understand a lot more about the mechanics of swimming and water exercise in order to make sure patients were getting the appropriate types of exercise for their particular diagnoses. Dr. Downey, who is one of the original leaders in our field of physical medicine and rehabilitation, was one of my greatest mentors; he encouraged me to explore the science supporting the use of the aquatic environment for rehabilitation. bellevue club september 2017 | 55


RM: What challenges do you face in this turbulent time for medicine? AC: A big part of my role as a physician executive is to help develop better and more efficient ways to provide higher-quality care at lower cost. We call this the value relationship. To do that requires a lot of forward thinking and teamwork among many different providers. And at the end of the day, you usually get better clinical results at a lower cost. Using evidencebased medicine, or what science tells us, can help guide us to make better decisions about how to use the limited amount of health-care dollars that are available. At the end of the day, the most important thing is the patient comes first, and we never want to do anything that will sacrifice the quality of care we provide. Dr. Rayburn Lewis was also an extraordinarily talented mentor for me as I shifted my career from purely seeing patients to executive leadership. I have been very lucky to have some wonderful people mentor me during my career. RM: How do you balance a thriving career and being a father? AC: I’ve tried very hard over the years to do a better job of making family time and not letting work intrude upon it. However, when I was trained, one of the parts of the training was that the medicine and the patient always come first. The balance is something that’s different for everybody but is extremely important to be aware of and work on. When I didn’t have the quantity of time, I tried to provide the quality. However, there’s also a balance between quantity and quality, and you can’t shortchange either one in trying to find the right work-life balance. RM: Outside of your career, what do you enjoy doing in your free time? AC: Spending family time with my daughter! I like sailing, freshwater fishing, cooking, gardening, reading and exercise. I do Pilates and yoga. But I think the best of all is spending time with my daughter.

“The practice of medicine itself is very humbling.”

56 | september 2017 reflections

RM: Did you ever consider another career path? AC: When I was in college, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go into the U.S. Foreign Service, because I was particularly interested in international health, or go into medicine. My father said to me, knowing my personality, I would do better being a doctor, and then if I wanted to do international health, I could do that later. It turns out he was right. I have gotten involved with international health. During my last year of medical school I volunteered for five months in the third-world part of the Caribbean country St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The team I joined had a grant from Rusk Institute to identify people with different types of disabilities, impairments and handicaps. Using the World Health Organization model of Community-Based Rehabilitation, we developed treatment plans for them. Ultimately, about 30 years ago I helped start a nonprofit health organization called Community-Based Rehabilitation International to continue this work. RM: Working in such a high-intensity career can be both physically and mentally demanding; how do you remain relaxed and grounded? AC: It’s been challenging. Most doctors are not relaxed, but try to find ways to do so. I find that sailing, fishing and regular exercise are very helpful. I help myself stay grounded by working with those less fortunate than me through volunteer work and the types of patients that I see. The practice of medicine itself is very humbling.

ROME POPULATION: 2.8 MILLION ••

SANTA FE POPULATION: 84,000 ••

THE SCENE: No matter what style of art you lean toward, there’s simply no question that Rome contains some of the world’s greatest artistic treasures. You’ll run into creativity nearly anywhere you go, but it’s worth getting a ticket to the Galleria Borghese, where you can see works from Caravaggio, Titian, Peter Paul Rubens and more. The sculptures from Gian Lorenzo Bernini are a highlight; Apollo and Daphne expertly captures a dramatic moment that you can feel unfolding in front of you.

THE SCENE: To say that New Mexico’s Santa Fe punches well above its weight class in art is a bit of an understatement—more art is sold here than in any other U.S. city, with the exception of New York and Los Angeles, quite a feat given its relatively small size. But one visit and it’s easy to see why. There are more than 200 galleries, and people flock from miles around for that classic southwestern aesthetic the city is known for. Find the highest concentration of art on Canyon Road, where a mile-long stretch buzzes with more than 100 galleries and artist studios.

WHERE TO STAY: The First Luxury Art Hotel Roma is a five-star spot close to the Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo and Via del Corso. The hotel’s contemporary art collection is curated by the nearby Galleria Mucciaccia, and each room is like a mini gallery.

WHERE TO STAY: The art program at La Posada de Santa Fe began decades ago, back when the hotel was an art colony. The pieces are for sale, and if you find something you’d like to take home, you can pay a return visit to the resort at half price.


MARFA POPULATION: 1,900 •• THE SCENE: This tiny desert town in the middle of West Texas started its transformation into what it is today in the 1970s when artist Donald Judd moved here from NYC, acquiring a decommissioned military base that he turned into art spaces. Now you’ll find more than a dozen galleries, the largest of which is Ballroom Marfa. A hub of activity, the nonprofit is focused on visual arts, film, music and performance. Even the sky sports some artistry of its own, with the famed Marfa lights— mysterious glowing orbs that appear on the horizon outside of town. WHERE TO STAY: The design-forward, minimalist Hotel Saint George includes 300 pieces of art throughout the property and houses the popular Marfa Book Co., which hosts readings, performances and exhibitions.

There are galleries and museums, but it’s the street art here that defines the city’s scene. You’ll stumble upon it while wandering the cobblestone streets, but if you’d like a little context, take a tour with Valpo Street Art Tours to learn all about the graffiti culture and visit some places you probably wouldn’t find on your own.

NELSON POPULATION: 10,200 •• THE SCENE: Thanks in large part to the Kootenay School of the Arts at Selkirk College, there’s a ton of artistic talent in Nelson, British Columbia. You’ll see it on display at places like the Craft Connection, a co-op that’s been in existence for three decades; Touchstones Nelson: Museum of Art and History, which highlights local talent in its art gallery; and Oxygen Art Centre, a renovated warehouse studio with classes, residencies and exhibition space. WHERE TO STAY: The historic Hume Hotel & Spa property dates back to the 1890s and, as a result, oozes character. On-site, you’ll find multiple restaurant/bar venues (including a live jazz lounge) and an eco-conscious spa. Plus, the rooms were recently renovated and a full breakfast is included each morning.
