Paintings – Seattle, Me – New Studio

It has been an eventful couple of months–days, in fact.  The closing of my gallery (Works on Canvas) so that I can devote more time to painting and less to running a gallery business, two studio moves and now, representation in Seattle.  Whew, my head is a spinning.

Mike and Jack had attended an exhibit at Works on Canvas Gallery over a year ago–and when they came again this Friday during artwalk it was with a great deal of news for themselves.  The opening of a gallery on 1st Avenue/Pioneer Square in Seattle in May is making their lives eventful.  And that they’d like to exhibit my paintings, specifically my Reading Rilke paintings and large Nimbus Grey painting, is making mine ever so exciting.  So in between scrambling to paint the walls and floor and move into my new pinch me if it’s real studio, I’m packing up 8 paintings and taking them to Seattle next week to Mike and Jack’s fabulous new gallery.  My first First Thursday opening on May 5.  Cool, huh?  And all this while Mercury is retrograding…

Here is the info.

      Sharon Kingston is a Northwest WA oil painter who uses the properties of her medium to create paintings that respond to both the atmosphere of her surroundings and poetry. This method of looking inward and outward and, in the moments of painting, finding her way on the canvas is her approach to creating paintings infused with poetry and the memory of landscape. The atmospheric element of her work is a testament to her desire to create spaces that are undefined, contemplative and allow room to reflect and accept uncertainty. Poetry, by nature open ended, is used both in the conceptualization of the work and as a part of the studio practice. The words of Rainer Rilke have informed Sharon’s work for many years, but she also turns to contemporary poetry when it resonates with her life. She uses layers of transparent color, reveals forms by concealing and unearthing pentimenti and suggests elements of landscape in her process.
