Lake City Artist Has Solo Gallery Show

Local Artist Lynn Debeal Shares Her “Multiplicity” Artwork

Lake City artist, Lynn Debeal talks about her work –
“Multiplicity” – “Celebrating the Sacred Geometry.  “My work is inspired by the Sacred Geometry.  I use it to generate Mandalas from my original hand done pastel, color pencil, vector, & painted artwork.  10 year of asbestos exposure in the 1970s/ 80s & mold exposure in the 90’s caught up with me. Pulmonary Fibrosis & a restrictive lung disease made art mediums that produced dust became toxic to me.  So I went digital.  I found a Kaleidoscope program & began to explore art the same way I used to explore my music – mathematically. I began to “Re-Mix” my art. Geometry, which means “measure of the earth,  is part of everything we see & hear.  Our bodies, nature, architecture, music.  My lungs can no longer sing jazz, blues, rock or folk cover tunes, but I cover my artwork.  And create again.”

Brief Arts Survey

Arts Programming in Lake City

Local resident Darian Smolar is helping to create an artist data base for Lake City as well as create more opportunities for local artists and performers to share their work for the benefit of all. We know that we all have survey fatigue here in lake City but please consider chiming in as we work to create a dedicated arts committee.

“My Home” by Elise Koncsek

LCFF caught up with local Artist Elise Koncsek as she was taking down her installation entitled “My Home” this past week at the Lake City Mini Park. I asked Elise if she would be willing to share a bit about her project:

“My Home provides a voice for Seattleites experiencing homelessness to define the concept of “home” and publicly share their needs and interests for housing solutions. With this project, I aim to spark discussion about homelessness in our city and encourage inclusion of people receiving housing services in the designing of our service programs. This project was created in partnership with a group of fifteen family members staying at the Mary’s Place Family Center in the spring of 2016 and funded by Put the Arts in Parks, a Seattle Park District initiative. My Home was created in collaboration with Consuela Thomas, Sylvester Young Jr., Crissy, Haregu Kahsory, JR, Olivia & Hailey, Lwam Tesfay, Mya “Baby Girl” Haggard, Daniel “Bad Boy” Haggard, Tsedale Woldesemaya, Robert M. Stevens, Ayan Ali, Dahlak Andemariam, Karlie Taylor, Willie III, and the staff at Mary’s Place Family Center. Special thanks to Artech for their Public Art Grant which provided installation support and Zot Lasers for laser cutting services” arch-art-2

Lake City was fortunate to have two wonderful installations at the Mini Park this year including that of artist Melissa Koch.

For those not lucky enough to have time  to appreciate Elise’s work, on the central figure is written “At my home” surrounded by speech bubbles. Phrases like “We’ll spend time with the kids”, “I’ll let my guard down”, “We’ll build traditions”, and “I’ll relax in a bubble bath” are just a few of the powerful statements. Thank you, Elise and all who worked on this project.
