Gage also seeks to build bridges between two distinct worlds: the tradition of skill-based, classical art where the realism of the image is a major feature, and that of non-literal, contemporary art celebrating ambiguity, posing difficult questions and consciously engaging with the emotions and insecurities of modern life. This is an awfully tough job for either an art school or an individual artist, but it can also be an energizing challenge. How have successful artists navigated the Contemporary/Classical divide? A look through the Gage catalog reveals approaches ranging from the Matisseand Picasso-inspired figurations of Kimberly trowbridge and terry Furchgott, to the enigmatic self portraits of Kathy liao and Vonn sumner. Students of Mark Kango’higgins continually push the edge of what Gage art looks like; while those of Juliette aristides often find their personal voice once they graduate.

“i’m after the unexpected beauty, the hard-won beauty, the quirky beauty with thorns and a bit of background radiation.” — Gary Faigin

If you’ve been following my ArtTalk series (see page 9), you’ve also had the opportunity to hear local artists explain how this creative tension plays out in their own work. trimpin showed us complex electromechanical sculptures that give musical voice to user input or distant earthquakes; while Bill Finger discussed creating miniature worlds on a tabletop that his high-resolution photographs bring to enigmatic, “full-sized” life. Tension, contradiction, juggling competing imperatives — if this sounds like a description of daily life as well as of the artist’s dilemma, that’s because it is! We hope you’ll join us this winter at Gage, and together we’ll explore a path through this fascinating maze.

In the future, I hope to use the knowledge I gained during my time at the Portfolio Intensive to continue to communicate to others through art, which I hope to study in college through graphic design. I hope to create, share and experience art for the rest of my life.”

he painting I chose for the cover, Streaks and Rumbles (2013), features a packed, highly unlikely grouping of objects (indeed, there isn’t enough space for them all), hovering in front of an incongruous urban setting. The moody cityscape is roughly suggested with monochromatic, rag-applied paint — in every way a contrast to the shiny, precisely-depicted still life in the foreground. The viewer searches for links between these two discordant realms.

Based on the 19th-century model for training painters, this four-year diploma program provides time-tested methods for solving pictorial problems. Aristides teaches in stages: serious beginning students focus on drawing; more advanced students move into monochromatic and then fully-chromatic painting. Fourth-year students work on individual projects with guest mentors. Work from casts, the model and master copies in a series of progressively complex projects. Intended for long-term students, the Aristides Atelier offers you the necessary vocabulary to create well-designed and well-executed drawings and paintings.

Intended for long-term students, the KangO’Higgins Atelier offers the opportunity to work on increasingly complex independent projects under the close guidance of your instructor. You work with line and tone, light and shadow, color theory and mixing, proportion and anatomy, as well as different approaches to life drawing and painting. Learn to convey the essential nature of your subjects through finding the balance between technical accuracy and expressive gesture. Short slide and technical demonstration lectures help you add to your skills and place your work into a wider historical and contemporary context.

The Faigin Atelier offers painting students the opportunity to focus their studio practice on the study of still-life arrangements over the course of one to several years. The intimate studio setting enables you to devote as much time as you wish to creating paintings, without the limitations of model time or weather conditions. Because everyone shares the same focus, optimal conditions for creative interchange and dialogue develop. You work toward success using the still life as a tool for the development of your own artistic voice, creating original, lively pictures that express your ideas and feelings, and focus on technique, rendering and composition.

Focusing on the quick sketch, you practice reducing a scene to its key elements. Pencil, pen or watercolor; emphasis is placed on recording the basics — the viewer’s impression and main idea. An understanding of general principles of perspective is helpful, but guidelines and vanishing points are foregone in favor of loose capture, while still invoking the artist’s subjective viewpoint and sensibility. Class held outdoors if weather permits, but principles can be demo-ed and explored through interior settings and still lifes. Each day includes a demo on a specific focus, including contours, contrast, composition, artist compositional options and more. WW1403

Learn to use flat and graded washes and apply dry-brush technique as well. Work with simple subjects from the grocery store such as mushrooms, peppers and squashes, as you gain confidence in the traditional techniques of botanical watercolor, then move on to larger, more complex subjects. Costs of materials can be minimized by purchasing small amounts of necessary paints, paper, etc. from instructor. WW1406

Build on techniques introduced in Illustrative Drawing I, with a deeper emphasis on composition, subject matter and the artist’s personal approach, and with an eye towards the finished piece. Careful observation to detail, exaggeration, distortion and unique viewing angles are embraced as tools for “pulling focus,” and making an ink wash and watercolor drawing personal and specific to the individual artist. $25 partial materials fee payable to instructor.

Working abstractly opens doors for the individual artist, inviting surprising expansions of the range of both the painter and the paint. Without the usual reliance on an image or a scene as a guide, making a painting requires sharpening your listening skills. Instead of observing what color a tree is, for example, you are more likely to ask the painting what it needs. Form overrules content. WW1408

Discover the freedom and expressive quality of ink wash layered with charcoal and white chalk while improving your ability to accurately draw the figure, perceive simplified planes of light and shadow and render drapery and folds. Complete gesture work and several finished drawings on tinted paper, learning to capture the essence of the nude and clothed figure in space with incisive lines and strong tonal values. Some previous figure drawing experience recommended. $10 partial materials fee payable to instructor.

Learn how to paint ripe, colorful fruit by first studying master copies, then with direct observation from life set ups. Focus on paying close attention to pictorial composition, value structure and gestural dynamics of the painting while learning how to apply classical painting techniques. WW1410

Begin by introducing simplified perspective lessons for elementary students, building skills throughout middle school lesson plans, and finish with advanced perspective for high school students. Complicated perspective problems are introduced to improve skill level with perspective. This is an intensive course designed specifically for art educators that not only covers one- and two-point perspective, but addresses inclined and declined planes, drawing curves in perspective, creating vanishing points, finding existing vanishing points in a picture plane and much more.

Former Florence Academy instructor Jordan Sokol leads this workshop, which offers new insight into the “sight-size” method of drawing the figure from life, immersing you in a comprehensive investigation of the human form and equipping you with the tools to intelligently compose an accurate and convincing figure in two dimensions.

Florence Academy instructor and internationally celebrated sculptor Eran Webber leads this weeklong sculpting workshop, offering an intensive approach to sculpting the figure from life. Immerse yourself in a comprehensive investigation of the human form and discover the tools to intelligently compose an accurate and convincing figure in three dimensions.

Develop a fully rendered charcoal and white chalk drawing in this week long intensive; regular demonstrations and individualized critiques guide you through advanced concepts of figure construction, light and form modeling, anatomical and proportional canons to support a visual understanding, analyzing depth and understanding contour movement in space. Prior figure drawing experience is recommended.

Explore sculpting the figure from life through the teaching method of the Florence Academy, which derives from the classical-Realist tradition, rooted in the Renaissance, and revived by the major Realist academic ateliers of the 19th century. This approach allows students to balance both a visual and constructive approach to understanding the mechanism of the body.

Designed for the practicing artist to explore, question and understand the making of dynamic space and color as light, O’Cain’s approach helps each student to seek which direction they wish to develop and to know and understand their personal strengths and weaknesses. Students may bring examples of their art for group or individual critiques. Class time features discussions on how color creates light and its emotional and psychological effects, as well as its dynamic spatial concepts. The principles and exercises presented may be employed by both the representational artists and the artists of abstract ideas. Slides of works of art are presented to illustrate spatial structure and those that do not. Students may paint in any medium they wish. Representational painters work from a still life, or may use a study or other image as a reference point. Exercises help to organize shapes and color into special relationships for those who would like to form abstract ideas. Demonstrations and discussions are conducted in the morning, and should run close to an hour depending upon the needs of the students.

Mon-Sat 9:30am-4:30pm 1/6-1/11 [6 days] As a foundation for your own contemporary works, explore the indirect painting techniques of the Venice and Florence schools of the 15th and 16th centuries. Working from the model, each day you progress through set stages of this rigorous painting technique in order to complete one finished portrait by workshop’s end. Progressing from compositional studies, develop a careful underdrawing and fill in your portrait with a monochromatic grisaille painting to establish tonal gradations, then overpaint your portrait with a classic dead palette of red oxide, yellow ochre and cold black plus white before applying a warm/ cool palette that pushes the value contrasts and gives your portrait a beautiful tonal depth. The final stage of your painting process includes working with a full-color palette while applying glazes and scumbles, as required. This is an advanced course suitable for anyone with an interest in classical painting techniques and intermediate painting skills. Wa1401




Mon-Fri 9:30am-4:30pm 1/6-1/10 [5 days] Working from the live model, learn a number of conceptual and practical tools by which to better solve the observational and practical problems associated with naturalistically depicting the human face and head. While seeking to grasp the character of the sitter, develop drawings from the block-in stage through to the modeling and completion of forms. Recognizing stages in the drawing’s development serve as the discussion point of various topics including gesture, proportion and likeness, the anatomy of light and shadow, structural and physiological anatomy and value, line and mass. Wa1402



[5 days]

Trompe l’oeil painting (literally “trick-theeye” painting) has a rich tradition going back to the ancient wall paintings of Pompeii. The beauty of this technique is that it is so simple and yet visually arresting. It’s application ranges from illusions of bas relief wall decoration to still-life painting to public murals. Explore the compositional strategies that make striking illusions possible, while refining your rendering skills in the painting medium of your choice. Wa1403

Vashon Island sculptor Julie speidel began as a jeweler and transitioned to sculpture, with her vision and feeling for design intact. Her indoor and outdoor pieces have become a familiar presence in the Northwest, and her art continues to evolve, both in terms of scale, materials and concept.

Representational paintings owe much of their power, structure, mass and volume to value and its careful consideration. This class provides students an opportunity to refine their perception and depiction of value. Working only in black and white paint, you focus on the accurate interpretation and organization of value, form, structure, mass, volume, texture and atmosphere. Address methods to keep the composition organized, the application of value in under-paintings and assess Masterworks to examine and explore their use of value in structure and composition.

Explore different approaches to abstract art including spontaneous gestural painting, color-field simplification, drip painting and collage. Experimental application of paint using brushes or anything that lends itself to a particular painting, such as palette knife, Popsicle stick, spray bottle or sponge is encouraged.

Delve deeper into color mixing in the second course in the series. Tackle classical color theory, color harmony, avoiding muddy color, color keys and color schemes. Composition plays a greater role, along with continued practice in direct and indirect methods and brushstroke technique. Develop criteria for evaluating your own and others’ work. Prerequisite: Foundation Still Life I.

Turner, based in a traditional realism, and Monet by way of late Impressionism are two pioneers of Modern Color — color that informs, lights, structures and adds emotional power to a painting rather than only decoration and beauty. Often this is done by moving a work into abstraction, gently or powerfully, with meaning and purpose always in a logical, consistent manner. Beginning with the works of these two Masters, you advance to include more contemporary artists such as Rothko, Hofmann, Albers, Matisse, Marden and Diebenkorn as to their conclusions, reasons, methods, techniques and results in their explorations toward a profound, emotional, and meaningful visual experience; always more experiential than referential. Oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastels or in any combination. Experienced Intermediate with some color knowledge. $15 partial materials fee paid to the instructor.

Unlike figural or landscape subjects which move and change with time, a still-life can offer at its best something of a continual spiritual presence. More than just a picture, an additional reality can be evoked in the most humble of objects through insight and techniques concerning color, composition, texture, structure and subtle shifts in vision. These are yours along with a few secrets in a series of exercises leading to a finished painting in oil or acrylic.

This course continues an investigation of the language of abstraction through the working methods of 20th and 21st century artists. Working in drawing materials and oil or acrylic paint, create and define new abstract forms, develop compositions and distill personal content into new imagery. Instructor guidance, short lectures and discussion enhance your experience. New students welcome.

As an experienced watercolor painter seeking to refine your practice and strengthen your personal style, work under the close mentorship of Tom Hoffmann to develop independent painting projects according to your artistic vision. Hoffmann assists you in your mastery of advanced techniques and innovative approaches to increasingly complex compositions. Group discussions and critiques further stimulate visual openness and growing awareness of varying approaches to common problems.

Start by sketching and learning the bones and major muscles and how they relate to the overall form, then watch your animals emerge through understanding how the bodies work with both expression and form. You also study action and the scale relationships of the various body parts for proper proportions. Class price includes clay. s1406

GaGe GuiDeD tours

In the tradition of all professional art schools, Gage offers drop-in figure studios every day of the week. Artists work independently from the model on a drop-in basis, gaining hands-on practice in drawing, painting or sculpting the figure. In Artist’s Choice sessions, the pose is set by a Gage instructor who works alongside studio artists for the duration of the pose.

In the Reserved Figure Studios, a group of dedicated artists work from one figure pose throughout the 10-week quarter, with the pose set on the first night. Artists must register before the quarter begins to guarantee an easel space.

Connect with a Gage mentor for guidance on your creative journey. Depending on your skill level, mentors give private art lessons or assess your work, make suggestions for further study and help develop a road map for your future study. To enroll, call Gage for help with determining the best match for your mentoring needs.

Art historian, curator and author Richard V. West is Director Emeritus of the Frye Art Museum and a member of the Board of Trustees at Gage. A native of Prague, Czech Republic, he studied in Europe and the United States before receiving a master’s degree in art history from the University of California at Berkeley.

Join Gage teaching artist Charles emerson for two tours of the Miró: The Experience of Seeing, on view at the Seattle Art Museum. Emerson lends a unique artist’s perspective to this striking exhibition, drawn entirely from the collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid. The exhibition features 48 paintings, drawings and sculptures made in the period between 1963 and 1983.

A fascinating aspect of recent representational art has been the revival and transformation of illusionist painting. Influenced by recent art movements and the emerging science of visual perception, contemporary artists have taken the traditional form of trompe l’oeil painting and invested it with new narratives and symbols. Other artists are deploying illusionist cues to create images that misdirect the eye and initiate perceptual dilemmas for the viewer. In either case, these works engage the viewer in a dialogue concerning meaning and intent that intensifies the experience. West explores examples of recent illusionist painting by contemporary artists and discusses the sources and ideas that influenced them.

Having recently moved to South Park in Seattle, a neighborhood flanking the Lower Duwamish Waterway Superfund Site, watercolorist Chandler Woodfin uses vibrant plein air landscapes and images of neighbors in their environments to visually examine what it means to live on and around a hazardous landscape.

Over 25 Youth and Adult Programs Gage teaching artists show new work spanning the mediums of drawing, watercolor, painting, collage and sculpture. This exhibition provides an insider perspective to what inspires our instructors when they redirect their attention towards their own studio practice.

Mixing Western and Japanese traditions in his printmaking process, Charles Spitzack develops complex multi-color blocks that vacillate between abstraction and representation, revealing influences of German Expressionism in his carving technique. Spitzack’s subject matter recalls printmakers such as Käthe Kollwitz and Jose Posada, as he calls attention to the complex but simple human condition.

From cast drawings to classic table compositions, Gage teaching artists utilize multiple styles and techniques when teaching students how to work in the still-life genre, a variety of which are on display in this exhibition. This show includes a special highlight exhibition for Melissa Weinman’s weeklong workshop Trompe L’Oeil Painting.

Andrew Martin: Self Portraits February 21 – April 4 Opening Reception: February 21, 6:00pm-8:00pm Andrew Martin (1923–1997), the son of a sculptor, was born in Paris and trained at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts and the Art Institute of Chicago. He lived and exhibited in New York and North Carolina, and for several years had a studio in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. From sketches to oils, Martin’s self-portraits are selected from a large collection of his works at Gallery Andrew Martin in Port Townsend.

8th Annual Spitting Image juried Self-Portrait Exhibition February 21 – April 4 Artists’ Reception & Awards Ceremony: February 21, 6:00pm-8:00pm Juried this year by the Nordic Heritage Museum’s Chief Curator Lizette Gradén the annual selfportrait exhibition showcases student’s best portrait work in competition for hefty tuition prizes.

Inspired by the BUSTER SIMPSON // SURVEYOR retrospective exhibition at the Frye Art Museum, // SIGHTLINES presents the perspectives of five Seattle artists on the build-up of the detritus of a life lived and our choices about what to save (or document) and what to toss. With reference to Simpson’s self-documented performances, environmental activism, and the fleeting utility of objects and structures in the landscape, artists include Thuy-Van Vu, Iole Alessandrini, Rodrigo Valenzuela, Whiting Tennis and Allyce Wood.

After we flush where does it all go? Stokley Towles’ production of Flushed: into the world of wastewater treatment is part of the on-going public art programming, produced by 4Culture in partnership with King County’s Wastewater Treatment Plant, Brightwater. As part of the Conveyance Project, Stokley and five other county-based artists are producing temporary artworks designed to engage the broader community in a conversation about water quality in our region, environmental stewardship and the extent of the Brightwater system. For ten years Stokley Towles has been exploring the infrastructure of municipal systems, taking up residency within and looking closely at the environment and the people who work there. Towles has performed in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle, and his work has been presented locally at the Henry Art Gallery, Greg Kucera Gallery and Seattle Art Museum.

The Synthesis of Conflicting Forces Benjamin A. Vierling

Benjamin A. Vierling: A Decennary Retrospective January 17 – February 14

Friday, January 17  7:00pm  Geo Studio, 3rd floor

Artists’ Reception: January 17, 6:00pm-8:00pm Concurrent Artist’s Lecture at right:

Exhibiting artist Benjamin A. Vierling discusses his techniques, influences, and working processes. “The time period that speaks to me with the clearest voice remains the early Renaissance in Northern Europe,” says Vierling, “where crystallized forms and the rich use of color brought the reflections of the contemplative mind into focus. If I were to look to one beacon for guidance, it would be Hans Holbein, who refined this visual language into an enduring standard. Holbein imbued his subjects with a dignity to which we can today only aspire.”

In Conjunction with Benjamin A. Vierling: A Decennary Retrospective

Showcasing select drawings and paintings from 10 years of work, this is Benjamin A. Vierling’s first solo exhibition in Seattle. Employing primarily a 15th Century mixed-media technique of egg tempera and oil paints on panel, he integrates mythical references with contemporary subjects to bridge the timeless with the ephemeral.

That’s Art! The American Comic Strip from Mutt & Jeff to Doonesbury February 21 – April 4

Benjamin A. Vierling is an American artist known for his diversely applied renderings of arcane subjects. Born in San Francisco, he developed an affinity with the fine arts during his childhood, and has studied independently in the United States and in Europe. His paintings are exhibited internationally, most recently in New York and Berlin, and previously at Seattle’s Roq la Rue Gallery. Benjamin A. Vierling

The Rise and Fall of the Classic American Comic Strip Richard V. West

Artists’ Reception: February 21, 6:00pm-8:00pm Concurrent Artist’s Lecture at right:

Friday, February 21  7:00pm  Geo Studio, 3rd floor In Conjunction with That’s Art! The American Comic Strip from Mutt & Jeff to Doonesbury

Selected from a Seattle collection, the exhibition presents vintage examples of such well-known daily and Sunday features as L’il Abner, Brenda Starr, Terry and the Pirates, Blondie, Barney Google and Bringing Up Father. Lesser-known strips such as Tailspin Tommy, Mickey Finn and Hap Hopper are also represented along with modern strips that include Gordo, Peanuts, Hagar the Horrible and Doonesbury.

The comic strip as we know it today had its origins in a bitter circulation war fought in the late 19th century between rival newspaper publishers Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. By 1924, the well-known critic Gilbert Seldes declared that the newspaper comic strip had become a true American art form, like jazz and the movies, which deserved to be taken seriously and enjoyed without guilt. West explores the dynamics of this modern art form that, like jazz, impacted American cultural life at all levels for over a century.

introductions Meet allyce Wood, youth teaching artist “I have been teaching at Gage Academy of Art since 2010, but my experience began in 2004 when I was a Teen Art Studios attendee. As a public school student, I was interested in art but wanted more comprehensive skill-building. These Friday night sessions were the spark that lit my passion, freed my ambition and unleashed my creativity. TAS was, and still is, the place where dedication blooms. Now as an instructor, it is my greatest thrill to see that spark of artistic liberation and joy in a young student as they respond to new media, processes or Allyce Wood historical examples of what art can be. To have a space that celebrates a student’s role as a creator is something to be treasured.”

Focus on basic drawing skills with a three dimensional twist, and learn how to sculpt with paper! Fold, rip, cut and form paper shapes that can be hung or even worn using traditional and non-traditional folding techniques. In addition to more customary forms, create pop-up images, lanterns, cut patterns, masks and more!

Recreate the cover art on your favorite novels or stories using watercolor, pencil and pen. Create a series of book covers exploring elements of design, watercolor technique, illustration and lettering. Imagine your own versions of old stories, literal or whimsical interpretations and spoofs on the cover art of famous novels.



color, paTTErn, absTracTion Madeline Crowley Discover new ways to use old tools for expression and discovery. Explore patterns to create layered texture, learn how color carries deep symbolism in art history, and play with abstraction to express pure emotion or form. Study both historical and contemporary artists using these elements in their work to guide and inspire your own original drawings, collage and mixed media.

Explore the detailed worlds of still lifes and your imagination through ink on paper. Study pattern making, layering, scale and composition as they relate to scenes you can see before you and from what your hand can exaggerate and build from scratch. Experiment with large-scale sumi brush drawings, small-scale micron drawings, and permanent markers using rice paper, Bristol board and acetate.


Use a variety of materials and techniques to capture the human face in accurate and dynamic ways. Practice gridding a photograph to create a larger drawing or painting. For a powerful effect, render your subject in a simplified two-value drawing, capturing depth and movement. Play with charcoal, pencil and ink, to express a range of energy and styles through new mark-making techniques. Madeline Crowley

Allyce Wood


Learn how experimentation turns the unpredictable into amazing art! Examine how artists throughout history have broken boundaries with their work, and how you can use that experience to grow as an artist. Use multi-media, drawing, sculpture and photographs to turn your art studio into a laboratory for experimentation and discovery.

Learn about famous artists who created abstract, surreal, and impressionist portraits and the techniques and whimsy that make them so recognizable. Use acrylics, watercolor or oil pastel to compose your own bold, unique and peculiar portraits. Explore the classical and contemporary techniques and eccentricities of Picasso, Kahlo and Van Gogh to create beautiful, strange works of your own.
